Chocolate and Valentine's Day go hand in hand, but there's something about making homemade goodies that makes the day even more special than if you just presented your loved one with the traditional heart-shaped box of candy.

Here are a few of our best Chocolate Recipes to get you started:

This Valentine is for the Dogs – Say I LOVE YOU with treats! #ValentinesForDogs

This Valentine is for the Dogs – Say I LOVE YOU with treats! #ValentinesForDogs

On our farm, we don't just love all of our pets, we consider them family!

And during the most love-renown month of the year, it seems fitting to included them in our Valentine's Day celebrations.  

How? Well, we could take them out for a hike in the woods, buy them a new fluffy and comfy pet bed, or gift them a few Milk-Bone dog treats.  Whatever little extra we choose, big or small, our dogs are sure to appreciate the extra affection and attention!

How will YOU connect with your dog this Valentine's Day for Dogs?

Shopping in a Tech Wonderland #VZWBuzz | Verizon Wireless Destination Store

Shopping in a Tech Wonderland #VZWBuzz | Verizon Wireless Destination Store


As a member of a team of totally cool influencers, during the holiday season, I had the lovely experience of having the opportunity to visit the newest Verizon Wireless Destination Store on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue.  Visions of custom sugarplum cell phone cases and tech toys galore dazzled my senses with every step through the store. 

Honestly, I felt like bursting into songs of joy from the experience... so why not?  It's with this spirit, that I share my experience in visuals and song (to the tune of the apropos world-famous "Winter Wonderland.") I hope you enjoy the tour!

Hugs and Kisses for the new Ball Heritage Collection Purple Mason Jars! #Giveaway

Hugs and Kisses for the new Ball Heritage Collection Purple Mason Jars! #Giveaway


I really didn't think I could love mason jars more than I already do, but Ball's Heritage Collection has given me so much more to adore!  For the past two years, the brand has released a limited edition Heritage Collection series to commemorate the anniversary of the “Perfect Mason” and “Perfection” jars. These were available in period-inspired blue and spring green colors.

This year, the third and final year for the Heritage Collection series, commemorates the 100th anniversary of the “Improved” jar, and Ball is releasing a dreamy new color.  Limited edition purple jars available in both pint and quart size!
