My best friend often says to me "I love you more than my luggage, but not more than whats inside of it!"
Well, no hurt feelings here because we all cherish what is inside of our luggage. With that being said, from now on, when I travel I always use my WordLock Luggage Locks. They sent me one to sample and it traveled with me to Jamaica last week, and now I am sold! I kid you not, they are a new staple in our travel items!

A Popping Good Time
Oh yes, it is that time of the year. The kids are dying to get outside and play. The sun is shining and what is more fun than bubbles? Oh how kids love blowing bubbles.
But those bubbles get expensive when the bubble solution goes so fast. And my kids definitely go through it fast! My solution is to make my own bubble mixture for the kids.
Long Lasting Bubble Solution
