Whole Together

To the beach and home and back again.  Summer ignited in the best way possible, with an unspoken continued commitment to carving out time to be together in the places that make us most happy.


The coming weeks will be defined by their own rhythm; some completely unscheduled, some structured by camp, with heaps of work commitments for me and my husband.  Regardless of what is going on in each of our lives, our family anchor is always found in the simple moments of togetherness.  For now, we’ll relish in the sort of beauty found in quick trips to our local beach, colored by dollar-store kites and gumball-machine trinkets – bought with saved-up quarters at the boardwalk surf-shop.

As much as summer will linger in our hearts and minds, we’ll soon shift again to adjust to the busyness that coincides with the academic shuffle and after-school activities come September.  But around a table, wherever that may be, over a meal or fun-packed snack, we’ll find ourselves completely present in conversation.


The children keep me on my toes with their snack requests.  They want fun, and yummy and they want to lend a hand!  As their mom, I need wholesome, real ingredients that will pass the kiddo taste-test.


I recently picked up Honey Maid Teddy Grahams in both Honey and Chocolatey Chip flavor. Sandwiched between a dab of sunflower butter or hazelnut/cocoa spread makes for a tasty snack that the kiddos love.  I’ll soon tuck these tiny bears into little lunch boxes along with handmade notes. And I imagine that this fun and simple snack, once packed into beach bags will remind the children of our family summer fun.

This is Wholesome


No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will.  Honey Maid provides wholesome snacks for every wholesome family.
