Light Up the Night 1

Light Up the Night with Balsam Hill

I love twinkling lights at nighttime! Strung overhead, wrapped around a wreath, or lighting up a topiary, strings of light make the summer night seem magical!

Fathers Day Gift Idea with Jord Wood Watches

This is a sponsored post for JORD Wood Watches.  All opinions are 100% mine. Shopping for a Father’s Day gift is always a challenge. Are you with me? Mr. Hoff has a tendency to just buy himself anything he needs or really wants, which leaves me scratching my head when it comes to gift ideas. […]
