5 Ways to Take Time Out for Yourself During The Holidays

5 Ways Take Time Out for Yourself During The Holidays - NewMamaDiaries.comThe holiday season has been upon us for a few weeks now and its so easy to get caught up in it.  To me and my family, it’s the best time of the year and the presents have nothing to do with it.  We love spending time together, sharing, and just enjoying the season.  One of our favorite things to do is eat and shop during the season.  My mom and I are the big bakers in the family, so we take full advantage and bake up holiday goodies all season long.  Up until I had my son, I worked full-time and had to balance out all of my seasonal activities with work.  Continue reading

I wanted to send a special Happy Veterans Day to all the veterans out there!

Very special thank you to my once A Marine, Always A Marine husband, Dad, Uncle, and Grandfather (who fought in WWII)!

As a member of the Armed Forces, Veteran’s Day is extra close to my heart.  If you know a Veteran, wish them a happy Veteran’s Day.  If you are a Veteran, take this day and enjoy it!  Serving in the Armed Forces is no easy feat, so if you have served you have done one of the most honorable things ever. Know that you made a great sacrifice, no matter what branch you were in or how long you served.

Semper Fidelis & Happy Birthday to all fellow Marines out there.  Hoorah!
