Spring has sprung! Well, maybe not quite yet, but it is certainly coming. And with it comes rain and rising temperatures. During this pre-summer season, it is the perfect time to start prepping your outdoor spaces for the hot, sunny summer days.

Easter is a celebration of life. For many, it is a celebration of Christ being resurrected and living once more. It’s also a time of new life and birth at the beginning of springtime. That’s why I choose to celebrate this day peacefully and compassionately. Continue reading
As people, we love love. You love love, I love love, everyone loves love!

Editor’s Note: Happy December! As Christmas nears, we’ll be sharing with you some of our favorite holiday traditions. So cozy up with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy!
Many people have fond childhood memories of advent calendars and candles marking the days in anticipation of Christmas time. A calendar of the month of December was proudly hung in many kitchens and family rooms to share the excitement of the coming celebration. Advent begins four weeks before the week of Christmas and includes two parts: candles and the calendar. Each Sunday of Advent, a candle on a wreath is lit to mark the nearing of the holiday. In some traditions, on Christmas, the final candle in the center is lit together as a family to celebrate the holiday’s arrival. Continue reading
Editor’s Note: In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 24th), today we’re sharing with you a glimpse of the shops in our hometown (Kidron, Ohio). Enjoy!
I love needing to travel only a short distance to have a good time. Spending time and money at local shops in my area is great because it’s quick, fun, personable, and the people there know my name! I can walk into a bookstore just a five-minute drive from my apartment and they greet me personally when I walk in the door. I’m a regular at the fair-trade shop, coffee shop, and several restaurants in my neighborhood. It’s so nice to be known where I go, and to know the people that are benefiting from my purchases personally. It also feels great to know that I’m contributing to the growth and maintenance of their stores and helping to keep them going.
