It’s fun to receive gifts during the holidays, but it’s also fun to give to others. Several years ago after the tragic loss of my brother, I started to volunteer more to help pass the time and heal my heart. His birthday was December 15, so the holidays were especially hard. Every year since I can’t celebrate with him, my son and I celebrate in our own way. There are lots of easy ways to give this holiday season and many of those can be inexpensive gifts. I’ve compiled a list of easy ways to give this holiday season with the help of my sponsor b+bĀ® so that you can help make someone’s holiday season be a little merrier.

This post was sponsored by Johnson & Johnson as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

I probably take several thousand photos every year; most of the space on my phone, tablet, and computer is occupied with photos. I enjoy taking photos of Gabe a lot, but I like photographing just about anything. I feel like most are wasted, because I can’t share all of them on social media. I’ve found a better way to share a few of my favorites using the Donate a Photo app created by Johnson & Johnson; I get to share my photos with family and friends, and I can help earn donations for some carefully curated causes.

MassMutual reminds us “Love is a Gift”

November 3, 2014

Tracking Pixel There is nothing quite like the love a mother has for her child. I was married 8 years before I got pregnant with Gabe. I thought I would “start” my own life before I had children, but I realized my life really didn’t begin until I had him. His love is the greatest gift that I have ever received. I am amazed at how my love for him continually grows, and the love he gives me in return. Thank you to MassMutual for sponsoring today’s post, and reminding us that #LoveIsAGift.


MassMutual Financial GroupĀ® helps individuals protect their families through financial planning. Who wants to leave a financial mess for your loved ones in the event of death or disability? It would just be heartbreaking! Unfortunately, though, there are millions of people around the world who don’t take the time to speak to a professional financial advisor when they have the time, and so they will find that their finances won’t have been sufficiently planned for such eventualities than if they did reach out for help. I know what I’ll be doing that’s for sure, irrespective of who I turn to for help. Nowadays finances can come in a myriad of ways especially as we have turned to the cryptocurrency era. If you want to leave something for your family with cryptocurrency then it may be best to check Independent Reserve for assistance in this area, you can then discuss what you want to do with your financial advisor. To make sure that the chances of this happening are reduced, MassMutual created the #LoveIsAGift campaign to celebrate the people that matter most in our lives.
