Holiday Focus: Cheap Decorations and Traditions!

I have said it countless times on this blog of mine, but I love the holidays.  I fully admit to being one of those people. As my children get older and our season of life begins to shift a bit, the holidays just keep sweeter around here.  With that said, I just don't think it is acceptable to break your bank for holidays.  You can make your home beautiful and festive, you can have special traditions, and make amazing memories…

How we Support our Dog During the Holidays with Calmz Anxiety Relief System!

I feel like we are always quit to comment on holiday overwhelm for adults and kids, but we so often forget what a traumatizing time of year it can be for our furry companions!  Kids ringing door bells at Halloween, multiple guests visiting for Thanksgiving and Christmas, new smells, fireworks, and even holiday lights.  Our dogs spend the holiday season completely overstimulated!  I was happy to learn about The Calmz Anxiety Relief System this year, just in time for holiday schedules.…
