If you computer screen could talk, you would hear my high pitch squeals of delight at the fact that the seasons have officially changed. Spring is finally here and Summer ahead of it! It's no secret to anyone who knows me that I love the outdoors and whether my family likes it or not, I'm always dragging them off to one adventure or another. The hubs needs a new pair of hiking boots (because I've got a couple hikes up my sleeve this year) and we found a pair of boots that, from the moment he sunk his feet in them, provided him equal levels of comfort and support. Add the fact that they make any amateur look like a professional and you have the perfect pair of men's hiking boots ready to hit all the trails this season! Forsake provided me the Hiker (pictured above), at no cost to facilitate this review, and I'm here to tell you that if you are looking for a men's hiking boot to make your next adventure perfect, you're gonna want to keep reading!

As I have grown older there are a few things I have come to appreciate more and more; craftsmanship and keepsakes. As a child I remember watching my grandfather fell a tree, so that he could mill the wood, and then use it to craft every piece of furniture you could think of. Today, my house is filled with those tokens of his love and hard work, everything from rocking chairs to shelves, tables, even a lap and candlestick. It's not just the beauty and the quality that I appreciate, but it's the knowing that though there will come a day when he is no longer on the earth with me, I will always have reminders of times with him, memories sealed in the furniture that he made, that I will one day pass to my own kids. There are many things in our home that will come and go but I try to invest as much as I can in products that will not only last a lifetime but will carry significance long after I'm gone. My youngest son, Levi was very much in desperate need of a toy box and when I found the Wooden Toy Box I instantly fell in love with what I saw. Wooden Toy Box sent me the personalized toy box, pictured above, at no cost to facilitate this review. If you have a child that could use a toy box, a hope chest, or even a gorgeous box to keep their pillows and blankets in, the Wooden Toy Box is the perfect way to house your child's special belongings and give them a special keepsake to treasure for years to come.
