The Perfect Summer Mocktail with Zevia

As sumer is quickly approaching, what’s more refreshing than a ice cold drink on a hot day? A lot of drinks have so much sugar and artificial flavors that it’s hard to find one that tastes good. I just discovered Zevia! Zevia has 0 calories and 0 sugar. It’s a non-GMO Project Verified, vegan, kosher, and gluten free drink that is naturally sweetened with stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener that provides 200x the sweetness of sugar that doesn’t raise blood pressure and has no calories.

Zevia Ginger Ale

I thought it would be the perfect drink to use in this simple ginger ale mocktail! You can actually add some vodka to make it a cocktail. I decided to forgo the alcohol so that the drink would be family friendly.

How to Prepare Your Child for a Funeral

Death is a natural part of life and in the event that someone in your life passes away, you and your family will attend a funeral. As adults, we know what to expect at one but for children, it is a whole new territory. When A was about 2 years old, my maternal grandmother passed away and we attended the funeral. We didn’t really explain anything about death to A at that time because she was too young and didn’t really understand what was going on.

However, about two weeks ago, my father-in-law passed away. He had been sick for over 10 years but it was still sudden and happened so quickly. We are still coping with the loss but as Christians, we take comfort in the fact that he is in heaven and that there is no more pain or suffering. (1 Corinthians 15:42-53)

As adults dealing with grief, we can surround ourselves with friends and other family members to find comfort and find the support we need during such a difficult time. But what about children- especially young children? First of all, they don’t know what to expect at a funeral. Second, they might not even know how to express their emotions about the situation. Third, they will probably have a lot of questions.

5 Lessons in Marriage for the Perfectly Imperfect

Today is our 8 year wedding anniversary. I honestly can not believe that it’s already been 8 years! My husband and I went to dinner last night at Scott Conant’s new restaurant The Ponte to celebrate because the rest of the week is too hectic with some family and work obligations. It was absolutely amazing! If you’re ever in the LA area, you should definitely try it out.

During dinner, it was nice to just spend time chatting. I know everyone says this about their husbands and significant others, but I really believe that my husband is the perfect person for me. I won’t go into the sappy details about why I believe it but I just do. But what I do what to share with you are some lessons I’ve learned and realized in the past 8 years.
