OK~ U.S. Cellular is visiting communities throughout the U.S. to enhance summer and provide residents with unique experiences at their favorite local businesses, block parties, community parks and major events as part of the Better Day program. In my opinion, anytime I can get outdoors during the summer, it's a Better Day!

The initiative will be capped off by a community beautification project meant to leave an impression in select cities to further showcase U.S. Cellular's commitment to the community.

U.S. Cellular is excited to provide communities with everything they need to create better moments together this summer. I can tell you that I am able to stay connected through Better Moments by using Instagram! All of my outdoor and indoor summer adventures are shared through Instagram, inspiring and sharing new adventures for fans to experience!

To celebrate a Better Day, I'm offering two giveaway tickets to one lucky reader for the U.S. Cellular 250 in Newton, Iowa!

Blogging + Conversation = Success In More Ways Than One

OK~ You know when I started this blog, I had no idea that I would still be writing here five years later. The best part of all of this is the fact that each year I seem to be getting deeper into this whole blogging world. You are probably now asking, "What do you mean by that?" Well, it seems that I am reaching deeper to find things to write about, as I am finding things that really seem to touch my heart. And maybe it's because I'm traveling more and meeting more people all the time. It is true, everyone has a story!

I have watched our two boys grow into responsible young adults and I have also watched their trials and tribulations along the way.

Life can get pretty hectic at times and our world makes me want to shake my head at times. There are millions of nice people in the world, and there are a few that seem to stick out when they try to make things miserable. I've learned, kick them to the curb! I do not need that in my life and neither do you!

The middle school years were a challenge for both of our boys, so when I have a chance to interact with a young boy that is Middle School age, I jump on it. Our kids today need positive reinforcement and they need to know that people care about them. Sure, Moms and Dads tell their kids how awesome they are, but how often does a stranger tell them that?

Carmelo Hernanadez, 12 year old national pitching champion, entered my life this past week and I'm sure glad  he did. Thinking back to the conversation I had with him...... I could have chosen to say nothing to him, instead he and I talked about how he had the power to encourage and empower younger kids. He was attentive and looked me in the eye when we spoke. That to me shows character and a 12 year old with a conscience. Unfortunately, many 12 year olds today do not have character or a conscience. Could it be that adults are afraid to talk to them? I don't know, but it's sure something to think about.

So, the next time you sit next to a 12 year old you do not know, strike up a conversation and see where you go! Wow- am I ever glad to be a part of Carmelo Hernandez' team- he has character, a conscience and he's a national champion! There's something to be said about a smile, the word hi, and even a helpful hand. Kindness goes a long ways and I truly believe if we all worked on being a little kinder every single day our world would be a safer place. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
