Where has blogging led me? It has led me to become a more open person. Someone who writes about their life; the good, the bad, the ugly. This is where I want to go: I want to be the woman behind the blog that people read and get inspired. Inspired to be a good parent and take a more active roll in their children's lives. To cook and eat healthier, not only for themselves but for their children. I want to inspire people to stay active. Not only for themselves but for their children. I want to inspire people to not using being parent or having children as an excuse for not taking care of themselves. To not use being a parent as reason to stop living, but instead to alter the way of living. To inspire women to be strong and independent individuals. To inspire people to write, and dont stop writing! I want you to take from this blog a lesson of some sort, however it may be, just something. This is me, all of me. I find myself to be a good person, with a good head on my shoulders. Who had a run of bad luck and pulled out of it. Fight through the storms and embrace the sunshine!- Original Post

Knok giveaway

Yesterday I was approached for this great opportunity to take a family vacation.  After looking into it I found that I would not be able to participate because we would not be able to share our home, which is something you must be able to (Think about the movie "The Holiday").  But they still gave me the opportunity to giveaway ONE FREE SUBSCRIPTION!!!

Knok is the new way for families to travel
Meet peer, trusted families from around the world
Stay at their homes, without having to match dates or destinations
Enjoy their unique family-friendly travel guide

Having children changes everything, and especially changes the way we all travel. Knok is for those of us who want meaningful and unique travel experiences that suit both us and our children.
With Knok, you connect with thousands of like-minded families who share their beautiful homes for holidays and enjoy travelling the world with their children.
When you become a Knok member:
* you can swap your home with families like yours, without matching dates or destinations
* you get a home insurance while you're travelling
* you can contact other families to organize your trip and find a place to stay
* you get access to a family friendly guide to discover the best places to enjoy vacations with your children
* you only pay a subscription fee when you're ready to travel and you save more than 80% on your accommodation
When you have a home ready for your family in every city around the world, travel becomes a way of life, a new and better way for you and your family to experience the world.
Travel is a critical part of our children's education. We should inspire our children to explore the world they live in; help them discover new places, new cultures, new people; dig deeper into the places we are visiting; live as the locals live; try awesome food; and learn surprising things along the way!
Knok helps us each live the delicious lives we want to live and give that to our children.
