Taking Care of My People

Mother’s Day has come and gone, yet I neglected to share how my special day went! Typically the day is filled with flowers, homemade cards, and many hugs through the entire day.

It’s a special day to celebrate and appreciate Mom, and while I do get some extra special attention, I do believe that families should cherish each other any day of the year.

Yet, this year, my Mother’s Day was a little different than usual. I spent my Mother’s Day in
Turks & Caicos! 


Peaceful coffee on the patio, morning hugs, and hey – I didn’t have to cook or clean at all that day. Bonus! Looking back, it was a Mother’s Day to go down in the record books since I was surrounded by tropical beauty and I was with my family. Indeed I felt very blessed. 

Thing is, no matter where you are, being with family brings that comfort and happiness like no other. After all, hugs from my kids are just as important at any time.

I really don’t know what I’d do without my people. Which is why taking care of everyones health {including my own}, is one of my top missions as a Mom.

A lifestyle with a balanced diet, exercise, plenty of rest and water is always on my radar. Take your vitamins, wash behind your ears. 

Orange Naturals has helped me in my mission to take care of my people. We start most days, here or anywhere, with our ND Shakes. Smoothies are tasty and the kids can’t get enough, yet I know they are always packed with the good stuff to keep them healthy.

May Long Weekend bring the opening of our farmers market again and I can’t wait to get some fresh fruits and vegetables, to add to our morning smoothies.


The ND shakes come in womens, mens and kids formulas – specifically made with what each needs. Featured on the Global Morning Show and on Steven and Chris – check out the smoothie recipes to try, especially my own Berry Good Smoothie!

I’m thankful to have my family, and I want to celebrate all those moments with them for years to come. For all those hugs and smiles, here or there and everywhere, the health of my people is crucial.

Stay healthy!
