Happy July ~ Letter From The Editor

Wednesday, July 1, 2015
Summer is in full swing, and I feel like a lighter, happier person. This kind of weather definitely agrees with me. I do like the structure that the school year brings, but I have to say that I am loving devoting my mornings to myself. I've been waking early and getting to the gym by 6:15 at least 4 days per week, and I've been taking several yoga classes a little later in the afternoon. I have more energy and a much better grasp on my time, being careful not to waste it.

Here at Pieces of a Mom, the editorial calendar for July is filling up quickly! This month, I'll be sharing a review of Vine Vera, a Resveratrol skin care line that's ideal for sensitive skin. We'll be talking about all things jewelry and how Rocksbox let's you sample pieces on a monthly basis. For my foodie friends, I'll be taking a look at MARY's secret ingredients, a gourmet and artisanal subscription box filled with lovely goodies to inspire your cooking. While we are on the topic of food, I have a super easy and tasty pasta salad recipe to pass along that's perfect for taking to a barbecue.

Look for a few family travel stories this month as we head on a few day trips as well as a weekend trip to Hersheypark. There will be an all-new Spotlight on the Jersey Shore, and your regular favorites, such as Best Online Reads and Friday's Fresh Picks will continue.

As you wait for these stories and more to unfold, here are a few favorites from June that you don't want to miss.
