Relaxing Sleep Tea by Cuppa Magic (review)

Disclosure: I received the Relaxing Sleep Tea for a reduced price for my fair, honest, and unbiased review. The opinions expressed are mine and my son Steven's.

A bit over a year ago, when Steven was going through the pain management program, the pain management doctor recommended that he drink chamomile tea at bedtime to help him relax.  He was already a tea drinker, so adding herbal tea to his bedtime routine wasn't a problem! When I had the opportunity to review the Relaxing Sleep Tea by Cuppa Magic, he wanted to try it. In fact, Steven was the one who made the most cups of tea from the tea packet of 14 tea bags! He really liked the taste of it, and so did I!

It contained chamomile, ginger root, saffron, licorice, fennel seeds, rosebuds, spearmint, rosehips, lemongrass, and Tulsi Holy Basil.  The ingredients had some anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It was definitely a relaxing tea at bedtime, and I would definitely order it for Steven and me both! Relaxing Sleep tea

Christmas and Holiday Events in Brevard County, FL (sponsored)

Disclosure: I received no compensation for this post. I'm writing it to inform my readers and others of events in my area, for EventBrite.

Hi! I was asked by the great people at EventBrite to write a post about events going on in my area during this time of the year.  I really couldn't think of anything really going on in November related to fall activities, so I'm opting to write about holiday and Christmas-themed events/parades going on this month. Check out EventBrite 's page  here to get tickets to events in Brevard County, in FL, or in your area, wherever you live in the USA.

There is one event that I don't know for sure when it will occur, and it's the Bible on Parade. It usually happens within the first 2 weeks of December in Melbourne, FL. I compiled this information about the other parades with a friend of mine, Jessica.   

Below is a list of the parades in our area:

Merritt Island Parade : December 3, 2016 at 10 a.m.  It goes from Merritt Island High School and goes to Edgewood Junior High School.

Cocoa/Rockledge Parade :  (for some reason or another, we keep on missing this parade! It happens on son's birthday, and we usually haven't been around for it!) It's on December 10, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. 
It goes from Rockledge High School to Lee Wenner Park (Florida Avenue is closed during it.). 

Cocoa Beach Parade: December 10, 2016 at 1p.m.   
1 Minuteman Causeway, Cocoa Beach, FL 32931

Cocoa Beach Christmas Boat Parade: December 10, 2016 at 6:00 p.m.

Merritt Island Boat Parade: on the river on December 10, 2016 at 6 p.m.

If you get the chance to come over to Brevard County in FL, try to go to one of our parades!

Long Time No Write!

  Long time no write, well, on my part! I actually went through a blogging funk, where I just couldn't get creative writing juices going...
