Wednesday, November 20, 2019
If you haven't had a chance, please check out Part 1 of my two part blog series, Christmas in Hershey.  In Part 1 I talked about Hershey Park's Christmas Candy Lane and The Hotel Hershey. Here in Part 2, I'll talk about Hershey Sweet Lights and Chocolate World, both of which I love. And please note, this is NOT a sponsored post. Since writing it I have become a part of the Hershey's Sweetest Families Panel, but when this was written, it was not sponsored. If you like my Hershey stuff (and I hope you do), be sure to check out my Hershey Insider Page for all of my Hershey posts.

Everyone Matters: A Tribute to a Lost Friend and Operation Christmas Child

Wednesday, November 13, 2019
Happy World Kindness Day! In honor of the occasion, I want to share a story with you. In 2015, the blogging community lost a wonderful writer and friend. Her name was Melissa Matters, and she passed away suddenly at the age of 36, leaving behind two beautiful children, a husband and family. I never met Melissa in person, but I considered her a colleague, a fellow writer and an online friend. I will truly miss her. She kept a blog about being a mom, and wrote some beautiful posts about her family and children. Her blog is called Wading Through Motherhood, and I hope you will check it out. I made this post in her honor, and there are some ideas in here about how you can spread kindness and help celebrate World Kindness Day.
