V Is For Vince

I just did a lot of visiting this past weekend, with it being our Thanksgiving up here in Canada.
Went to my sisters and my mother-in-laws on two separate days and ate tons of turkey.
But today I introduce you to the man who puts up with me and my crazy ways.
Vince.
My Vinny Barbarino.
Some of you might be too young to know who he is, but lemme just say John Travolta was the bees knees when I was a kid, and Vince is my bees knees now.
We met through a mutual friend, and have been inseparable 13 years this Boxing Day.
 He and I have been through many trials in that time and I know looking back we are forever meant to be.
Sounds a little cliché, but you just know when you will be with that person until the end of time. I know it's that way for us.
His family and I get along famously, and same as my family with his. We have all come together to be one large extended family. My mother has even dined at my mother-in-laws when she comes to town. They all get along as well.
Look, I've been with him since I was a young lady of 23. I am now almost 40. I feel like I have grown up with him, and he has seen me at my worst... my most immature time. If he can put up with me through that then we got it made!
He is kind, loving, treats his parents with respect. He is responsible, funny and always has my back. He takes care of me, my children, and my family when needed. He is all I will ever need.
He also leads me to believe that there really is someone out there for everyone. Your other half. If you're not with him or her now, I believe in my heart-of-hearts that you will be one day. Don't give up on love, 'cause when you find it, it won't give up on you.
Love you Drib.

Canvas Champ (With #Giveaway)

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both. You may work hard on writing good posts or hiring people who can create useful and interesting stuff…

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
