Tips For Writing A Book

Hey Just’n Tyme family! As many of you know, I have just completed my first Children’s Book, Justin’s Pumpkin Patch Adventure. The book is intended to be fun and inspire creativity and adventure through learning. The main character, Justin (my son), is an energetic and curious little boy who is anxious to get to the Pumpkin Patch for his special pumpkin-picking experience. While a fiction work, parts of the book were inspired by Justin’s actual field trip to Strawberry Hill USA — a local farm in Spartanburg, SC.

Travel Tips For Family Trips!

Why Wait For The Weekend?

Don’t we all just love the weekends? They are the days most of us get to take a break from the work week and enjoy what we really love most. Weekends are the couple of days out of the week that we can stay up later, hang out with family and friends a little bit longer, turn off our alarm clocks and sleep in.

I love weekends, and this past weekend was both amazing and eye opening.

Traveling With Liquid Gold…Planning, Prepping & Delivering

Traveling With Liquid Gold

I recently had to take a business trip to Chicago and there was a lot of thought behind getting ready for it. I feel like as a moms, we are always on – Planning, Prepping and Delivering. Well getting ready for this trip was no different, and so I went into full planning mode. How am I going to pump while away? Where will I store the milk? How will I get it back home? These were just some of the questions I had. I had a car adapter so I could use the rental car if needed to pump, the hotel had a refrigerator for storage, and I had a way to keep the milk cold – so I felt like I had my basis covered. So on I went.

What’s Your Favorite Book From Childhood?

Favorite Childhood Book

As I am putting the finishing touches on what will be our first published children’s book under “Just’n Tyme”, I start to think about my favorite book from childhood; and this phrase comes to mind, “One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and pop! Out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.”

Inspiration Behind Just’n Tyme

October 2014 I remember waking up one morning with mild pain in my side. It felt like the menstrual-type pain that I was used to getting every month. But, this time around was different because I was not menstruating—and I was two weeks past due. Once I got in to work that day, I decided to go to the local CVS by my job and buy a pregnancy test.
