The past year has been a very transitional one for me. Like many families, we had to make changes so that we could teach our kids from home. While those changes were disruptive to running my business, they also gave me a chance to slow down and take a look at my life. Putting part of my work life on the back burner helped me reconnect with the reason I started my business in the first place.
I’ve always wanted to be a mom, more than anything. When I became pregnant with our first son it became very important to make changes that would allow me to be with him more and at work less. I had started a blog a few years before to share my party designs and cute ideas for moms, and it was really starting to take off. So, I decided to focus on blogging in the hopes that I could photograph and write while my son napped and never have to miss a moment with him.
Flash forward a few years and my blog has become a full-time business. We’ve also added a second child and while I LOVE what I do, it’s sometimes very hard to balance a business, a baby and a 7 year old.
Honestly, a year ago I felt overworked and overwhelmed. The break from having to always think about what comes next, keeping up with trends and constantly trying to be creative, was actually a somewhat welcome one. I felt like for a moment at least the pressure had been turned off.
I’ve loved having this time to really connect with my boys. It’s been challenging and stressful at times, but it truly brought me back to realizing my joy is in the heart of my family. That’s what matters most.
But I still have dreams and goals of my own and that same passion for inspiring others.
I feel like I’m at a crossroad with my career and family life. So, I decided to speak to a psychic advisor and see if they could offer some insight into identifying my life path and discovering my destiny.
I had seen a friend’s post about California Psychics so I pulled up their website to see how it worked. They offer psychics to help with all kinds of interests and issues in your life. Connect with a deceased loved one, get relationship advice, ask about a problem you are dealing with or guidance in your career or finances…. They have advisors that cover all those and more.
When I came across Rika's profile I instantly felt a connection, so I set up a phone call.
Almost instantly she began to pick up on the thoughts and ideas that have been swirling around in my head. I started by just expressing I wanted to know what direction I should pursue in making changes to my career and she immediately started giving details on the exact ideas and interests I’ve been considering for a new venture.She relayed insight on where I should focus my energy and where I need to be more confident in the choices I’m pondering professionally and personally. I was very impressed with her ability to pull names of people and places and even financial investments I’ve been pursuing without me telling her those details.
She also gave me clarity on important family goals and how to make space for my home and work life to flow better. And she said she sees a surprise in that area, but I won’t go into that just yet….
Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely do it again. The call helped me connect the dots and feel more confident about my focus for the future. Rika also gave me great advice on channeling more positive energy, breathing and mindfulness tips that will help me manifest long term goals and good things in my everyday life.

Banana pudding is one of my all-time favorite desserts! It's kind of a year-round treat, just as good on a summer day as it is finishing off a comfort meal on a cold winter night. It's easy to make and something you can whip up for to bring for a party crowd or simply enjoy all by yourself.
So what makes a really good banana pudding? After trying a whole bunch of recipes out we've narrowed it down to these….
Banana Pudding Recipes
Magnolia Bakery Banana Pudding Recipe
Straight from their popular cookbook, this recipe is a well-loved favorite from the famous Greenwich Village restaurant.
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups ice cold water
1 (3.4 oz.) box vanilla instant pudding mix
3 cups heavy cream
4 cups sliced barely ripe bananas, (see note)
1 (12 oz.) box Nilla Wafers
In a large bowl, combine the condensed milk and water, beat until well combined. Add the pudding mix and continue beating for 2 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours or allow to chill overnight. (*note- very important step for allowing mixture to settle!)
In a large bowl, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Then carefully fold whipped cream in pudding mixture until no streaks of pudding remain.

Dry cleaners near me :How to choose the best dry cleaner to care for your clothing.
If you depend on having your clothes professionally cleaned on a regular basis it's essential to find a dry cleaner close by that can meet your needs. But not all dry cleaning services are the same. Some provide speedy turn-around and some send out so it takes a few days. Some can handle alterations and special requests while others only provide the basics. And then there's the difference in pricing.
Here are a few things to consider when choosing a dry cleaner business:
Dry cleaners near me prices
Dry cleaning bills add up when you drop-off several times a month. The average cost for dry cleaning men's shirts ranges between $1.99 and $3.50. Many dry cleaners will offer specials such as 99 cent shirts on Mondays or half-off days. Check online to see what the dry cleaner charges. If prices aren't advertised be sure to ask. Specialty items like mens suits and women's dresses can cost anywhere from $2.99 to $50 depending on the dry cleaners. If you are on a budget look for an all-one-price dry cleaning business like ZIPS. While the quality may not be as excellent or detailed, you can save a lot of money by using economy dry cleaning businesses.
We have a ZIPS dry cleaning near me that cleans any garment for $2.49 or less. They also offer same day service if you drop-off before 9am with pickup available after 5pm. Find out if there a ZIPS location near you

Another important consideration when choosing a cleaners is how quickly do you need to get your clothing back. Turnaround times vary depending on whether the cleaner does the job in-house or sends clothing out. Some are able to provide same day while others require 2 to 3 days.
Dry cleaners near me that do alterations
If you frequently need to have new clothing altered to fit or require hems and waistlines taken in or out you may want to choose a dry cleaner that can provide alterations. Find out what they charge for alterations and how quickly they can make them. One of the benefits of choosing a small business local dry cleaners is forming a relationship. Getting to know the person behind the counter means you're more likely to get last minute requests and may even score a deal if you give them your business regularly.

Did you know many dry cleaners can care for items such as Uggs, evening gowns, leather handbags and special care needs. Many can also clean bulky home goods like comforters and duvet covers.
