Are you a Jan Karon fan? The first book in her popular The Mitford Years series, “At Home in Mitford” is celebrating it’s 20th year in print.

It’s easy to feel at home in Mitford, North Carolina. In these high, green hills, the air is pure, the village is charming, and the people are friendly. Yet, Father Tim, the bachelor rector, wants something more. Enter a dog the size of a sofa who moves in and won’t go away. Add an attractive neighbor who begins wearing a path through the hedge. Now, stir in a lovable but unloved boy, a mystifying jewel theft, and a secret that’s sixty years old. Suddenly, Father Tim gets more than he bargained for. And readers get a rich comedy about ordinary people and their ordinary lives.

One lucky winner will receive the entire Mitford series!

The hospitality of Gold Peak Coffee makes me feel as if I am curled up on my comfy couch at home.

It isn’t the kick-you-in-the-teeth slurp of dark-roast. It’s a more congenial flavor that perks you up, without giving you the feeling you’re going to rattle apart at the seams. Gold Peak Coffee carries a dark roast, also decaf and sustainable organic, and has a light roast option available as well.   I first became familiar with their brand when they were called Georgia Coffee.  Since then, they have changed their name to Gold Peak Coffee.

Gold Peak Coffee is made with 100% Arabica beans.  Sipping on a warm cup of freshly brewed Gold Peak Coffee makes you feel at home….no matter where you are.  Recently they expanded the markets where their coffee is available, you might be surprised to find it is available near your home as well.

If you are fortunate enough to get to try some, I would suggest pairing it with a great dessert.  My husband and I enjoy ending a date with a hot cup of Gold Peak Coffee and a delectable dessert.  It’s a great way to extend the date and end it on a very relaxing note.

Does coffee play a role in your life?  What is your favorite way to enjoy coffee?  Many of our dates involve coffee!  We are always up for a cup.

 

You will be able to connect with Gold Peak Coffee on Twitter and enjoy their photo stream on their Instagram account.

Now it’s your turn… I would LOVE to hear from YOU! Let me know if you have experienced Gold Peak Coffee before.  Then please tell me your favorite food to pair with your favorite coffee.  Is it a dessert?  Perhaps a pastry?  Or maybe you love having coffee with something like pizza?  Leave a comment and let me know!

Summer heat calls for cool treats.  I don’t know about you, but growing up I lived for the sound of that ice cream truck rolling down the street.  Where we live now, we are lucky if that ice cream truck comes once a month.  Our kids don’t want to wait for the truck!
They are smart enough to realize the truck does not come around very often.  LOL!  What do we do instead?  We go for an ice cream run at our local Walgreens!
Walgreens carries some awesome ice cream products such as Magnum, Breyers, Klondike, Frutare, and Popsicle.  One night the kids were craving some ice cream.  We went to Walgreens and let get some Klondike bars.  Our store had a great selection!  I chose the Mint Chocolate Chip flavored ones and the kids chose the Reese’s ones.  Both were awesome and a huge hit for our whole family!  An added bonus was the Redbox machine!  We were able to pick up a movie and create an entire family night….all because of our local Walgreens!
When your family wants to have an ice cream night, you should head to your local Walgreens and get some treats for them to enjoy.
Head over to their website and let me know what ice cream you would want from Walgreens.  Do you and your kids like the same flavors?
You can connect with Walgreens on Facebook and Twitter.

For years now our kids have been wearing Umi Shoes.  We love them. The kids love them.  And the shoes last through so much wear and tear.  A few months back Umi released a sneak peek of their new collection!  Now their new collection is HERE and we were able to get some of the new shoes fr our kids.
Kayla, our 11 year old tween, chose the Rhain II for her shoe of choice.
  • Water-resistant man-made uppers
  • Neoprene lining and man-made footbed
  • Durable and comfy rubber outsole

These retail for $85.00 and are worth every penny.  The last pair of Umi boots we owned went through both of our girls and were in such good shape that we passed them onto a friend.  She has now used that pair for two more girls and the boots are still holding up!

Kayla really loved these boots!  She likes the bit of a heel on the back and says they work great with her jeans or a skirt.
Our daughter Grace fell for the Morie II in Cocoa Multi.
She says these are the most comfy shoes she has ever worn.  They feature some new Umi technology too…which is definitely adding to her comfort.
And Jack got the Sam in chocolate.
  • Leather uppers and linings
  • Hook-and-loop strap closure
  • Contoured, man-made outsoles for extra stability

These are perfect for a toddler.  They look dressy enough for church but are casual enough for outdoor play time as well.

Now that you are loving these new styles, I would love for you to enter this giveaway! Umi is offering one reader a $60 gift card to order the shoes of your choice!
