Apparently, budgeting and savings are hot topics within the Divas With A Purpose community this year. This post from 2014 was our 2nd most read article in 2015. To date it has been viewed over 8000 times.
This is one of my favorite articles on the site and one that I refer to and refer others to on a regular basis when asked just how does a Diva find her purpose. 15 Soul to Searching Questions to Ask Yourself was written to help myself and the Divas With A Purpose community do just that.
This fall my children and I finally crossed an item off of our family bucket list – visiting our local corn maze. We visited the Clinton Sease Farm in Lexington, South Carolina and had such a fun afternoon. Our goal in 2016 is to definitely get out and explore our city more. Often we forget the fun in being tourists in our own neighborhoods.
Another oldie but yummy! I shared my quick and easy quiche recipe back in 2013. This recipe brings back fond memories of my mother as it’s something I remember her cooking for herself regularly growing up – I didn’t realize the deliciousness I was missing out on as a child.
