#PickUpHappy with Happy Cards at Kroger & $50 Visa Giveaway!

After a long day of running errands with the kids, we still had to go grocery shopping. While picking up the items we needed at the grocery, I remembered that I needed to get a gift for my friend’s birthday. I really didn’t want to go anywhere else to shop for a gift, we were ready to get home for the day. After scanning through the gift cards for something that would interest my friend. We found the Happy Dining gift card, the perfect gift card for her. You can #PickUpHappy with Happy Cards at Kroger, just like we did.

What are you getting your dad for Father’s day? How about this beautiful Carver Gentleman’s Chest from Ameriwood Home?

This is a favorite of ours from Ameriwood Home. I love the antique look of this chest and how it offers a lot of storage room. There are five shelves on the left and five drawers on the right. The sliding door brings the rustic farmhouse look to your bedroom or any room of your home. It comes in grey and black. I think the grey gives it more of a rustic feel. The storage is great. I can now free up some of my closet space by storing items in the Carver Gentleman’s Chest.

The Recovery Village Inspires Change

Do you or someone you love deal with addiction? Are you an alcoholic or abuse drugs? Do you find yourself not living for today but live chasing the next buzz or curb the symptoms of withdrawal? It’s time for a new normal. Take a stand and demand from yourself that you will get sober. Know that you don’t have to go through the recovery process alone.  The Recovery Village inspires change by helping addicts overcome their disorders and live a life beyond addiction.

Drug addiction is a disease, but as a child, I didn’t understand why it grabbed ahold of a person and wouldn’t let go. I understand completely now. Many members of my family have dealt with the trials of addiction for many years. Some were the addict, some a trigger; some watched quietly from the sidelines as it slowly destroyed relationships. There is HOPE, and there is a way out.

Music, yoga, and meditation along with many others are ways to help a recovering addict through the process of getting and staying clean. A great song that deals and understands the trials of sobriety is Jamey Johnson’s High Cost of Living.” To quote a lyric “The high cost of living ain’t nothing like the cost of living high” is so true in so many ways.

Watch and really Listen to this song. Whether you are an addict or know an addict, in any process of recovery, or have years of sobriety, it will resonate with you on some level.
