While we’re at it let’s also talk about the flip sequins that we’ve all come to know and love.

Summer travels to Twinsburg part II

Do you have that one place that your family visits every year, and no matter what it never gets old? Twinsburg, Ohio is our place.

Twinsburg, Ohio is a historical town dedicated to the lifestyle of twin brothers who married, raised their families and built businesses in this one place. Ironically we may never move here but find it to be the most welcoming town to visit year after year just because V & K are twins and have a twin story to share with other people in town.

Day 1: V & K captured here making their mark on a very special registration to be counted in as one of the set of twins in attendance during the fest

This year, as every other year for over 26 years the Twinsday Festivities took place. Twinsday festival was even more exciting because V & K along with other twins were invited to the wedding of a lifetime. Twin sisters married twin brothers in the towns square, which marks the place where there met.

Our 7 hour ride to this quaint little town in Ohio is always worth every second. This year with the help of Mazda the CX 9 safely chaperoned our family and TwinDollicious merchandise to Twinsburg. We had the best surprise ever once arriving at our hotel…. we learned that the future brides and grooms were staying at the same exact location – EXCITiNG!

Day 2

Though it is an early call time to be on he grounds before 9 V & K are never late. They have always made it extra exciting for everyone and now Bash and dad join in with just as much excitement. They line up to watch or walk in the parade.

Once the parade is done the kiddos are ready for some fun! The carnival rides open, contests and performances on stage begin.

The girls walked the grounds with friends, took photos -along with the annual twin photo and when 5 o’clock struck; everyone headed to the square. It was as if Cinderella had arrived. V & K has their adorable tutu style outfits picked before leaving the hotel but somehow became too anxious to change for the wedding (afraid that they were going to miss) . To their surprise they were seated right behind the dad of the brides. What a treat!

You can catch the wedding and more on TLC network.

After all if this years excitement who knows what next year will bring?!

This is how we roll in the holidays!

The holidays are approaching fast; are you ready?!

As a mom who has the job of starting off the holidays by hosting Thanksgiving dinner I was super excited to get in the spirit by attending Momtrends holiday soirée.

The beautiful hosts pictured here by the Oventure tree, and styled by Cents of style…. (just one of the fabulous brands in attendance)

organized an event for us Mom and Lifestyle Bloggers to get our gifting ideas in gear. All guests were greeted at entry with gift bags that were made to fill as we visited each brands table.

There are so many holiday gifting ideas that are available for everyone and offered by these brands. I enjoyed meeting the reps personally as I visited each table. I also loved participating in fun challenges such as the Riders by Leestyle challenge

and the create your own cheese platter at Jalsberg .

It wouldn’t be a fun moms night out without a delicious glass of wine in hand as you walked the room. Noble Wines display of sweet, delectable wines were in attendance doing just so!

It wouldn’t be a night of holiday cheer without giving back. This is why every guest in attendance donated a toy or two to Second Chance Toys .

Well, Now that we’re all geared up and full of ways to share something new with our friends and family …. let the holidays begin!

Have you ever wondered how bloggers influence the community and Brands

Did you ever ask yourself how in the world do writers actually make money when their not traveling the world and making appearances for sold out best sellers?

Ugh, well there’s a community of people who network together and who have found their place in the writing world, that make a living…… and many make a great living.

When I first began writing it was a passion project that I’d finally gained time to tackle. I began to learn more as I began to work on it as a business. I learned about the ways to make money in publishing books as well as in creating meaningful content that may help others daily, weekly even monthly. The key to it all is connecting with the correct network of people and brands that represent things that you’re interested in writing about. Brands appreciate your input. If you’re a creative person taking on a quality lifestyle you may be a great fit for a brand. There are so many influential creatives in this world that have tons to offer. The future is children and the happy parents that raise them. This may come as a surprise, but the creative community being paid by brands are usually parents and MOMS in particular.

Nancy Behrman is a brand connector on top in this community! When introducing yourself and your work to someone like Nancy Behrman you’re opening doors of opportunity to making a living doing work that you will love! Top brands trust the voices of the community that Nancy Behrman can connect with.

If writing, blogging and sharing something great that world needs to hear about this article is for you! This connection is for you!

The steps I took to begin included my love for my children and the things that they were teaching me as a parent. This always brought me joy! FIRST PLUS!

Second step was to share things that I thought others could learn from. for me it was the life of a mom of twin girls with big personalities and the love of dressing up.

Last it was taking the steps to meet other people in the writing community who have similar things in common. Families and brands receive happiness in real lifestyle adventures. Everyone wants to know how to have a great day, how to live a healthy life what are the secrets? Sometimes there aren’t any secrets it’s just starting with a few tools that fit your life and the rest will build itself.

Here, Bash and I are in a room filled with moms, mompreneurs, WAHM, SAHM, SAHD and WAHD all enjoying and networking while keeping our little community happy.
