Celebrate The Start Of Spring With Peeps! @PEEPSANDCOMPANY #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Peeps And Company. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.    When I think of spring and celebrating Easter, it is always synonymous with PEEPS®.  As far back as I could remember, my siblings and I would look forward to finding our baskets on Easter morning and enjoying all of the delicious and sweet treats in there.  My mother has always loved PEEPS® so we always had their Marshmallow Chicks and Marshmallow Bunnies in our baskets.    Over the years I have noticed that these family traditions are very important to pass down to my own two children.  Ever since they were very little, I have celebrated the start of spring with fun and iconic PEEPS®.  Not only are they essential for filling Easter Baskets, but they are also perfect for garnishing baked goods and adding adorable accents to art projects and decorations.    This year, we added a new … [Read more...]

Warm Up This Holiday Season With Abuelita Hot Chocolate!

    The holidays are a great time to share traditions with families, friends, and other loved ones.  One of our favorite holiday traditions is curling up together and watching movies while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate.  From as far back as I can remember, my grandmother in Spain used to prepare hot chocolate for me and it always made me feel warm and happy.  I'm enjoying passing that family tradition down to my sons and, since they both love chocolate, they really enjoy it.    As you can see from the photos, they had a great time preparing their mugs of Abuelita hot chocolate.  They were literally slurping from and licking the spoons that they used to mix the hot chocolate.  Considering how cold it has gotten in New York City the last couple of days, it was the perfect treat to warm them up and the perfect opportunity to create lasting holiday memories together.    Abuelita comes in two varieties, Abuelita Granulado and Abuelita Instant.  Both pack a delicious punch, … [Read more...]

Celebrate Children’s Day!

There are many traditions that we value from our childhoods that still resonate with us as adults.  Especially when those memories were good ones, we reminisce about them fondly and try to share these experiences with our children as parents.  Having lived in Spain until the age of 8 and then New York City up until now, I have had the privilege of celebrating and sharing in a variety of traditions.  One particular tradition that I have happy memories of is Children's Day.Children's Day is a traditional  holiday that is celebrated throughout the world on various days.  It is especially popular in many Latin American countries.  In Mexico, it is celebrated on April 30th.  The meaning behind this holiday is setting aside a special day to recognize the importance of children and the role that they play in society.  We can all agree that children are very important in society and they bring a lot of joy and love to their families as well as others who come in contact with them … [Read more...]
