Discovering Local Michigan-Made Products with Kroger

Living in Michigan, I have the opportunity to enjoy lots of local products that are made right here in the Mitten State. Michigan is home to the Cherry Capital of the World (Traverse City), plenty of popular breweries like Founders Brewing Co., and Dearborn Sausage Co. No matter what types of food you like, you can find great products - ranging from locally grown fruits and vegetables to snacks like potato chips and pickles -  from every corner of Michigan.

A Weekend Stay at Graduate Ann Arbor

A Weekend Stay at Graduate Ann Arbor

This weekend my husband and I were invited to stay as guests at the Graduate in Ann Arbor, MI. Although we didn't go to the University of Michigan, we still root for the maize and blue, so getting an invitation to check out the hotel and spend some time in the heart of Ann Arbor was something that we couldn't pass up. My husband had visited Ann Arbor with his friends a lot while he was in college, so he was more familiar with the city when we visited than I was, which proved to be helpful as we walked around and explored. He pointed out all the hot spots that he and his friends used to visit and we discovered some new places along the way as we spent the afternoon downtown. Read on to learn more about Ann Arbor and why you need to stay at Graduate when you visit!

5 Things You Can Do To Keep Your Dog Healthy

5 Things You Can Do To Keep Your Dog Healthy

There's something so special about the companionship of a dog, isn't there? My dog, Oakley, is definitely a part of the family. My husband and I spoil him and try our best to give him a great life. Out of all the dogs I've ever owned, Oakley is the friendliest. He absolutely loves people and other dogs and he has such a sweet and gentle demeanor.

Oakley has grown a lot since we got him as a puppy, but ever since we brought him home with us, we vowed to take good care of him and make sure he stays healthy as can be. Over the years, Oakley has managed to stay healthy and I really do think it's because of the routine we follow. From going on walks and getting some exercise to fighting against fleas and ticks with Hartz UltraGuard Pro®, we've learned what works best for our dog and how to take great care of him.

I'm so glad that my husband I were are able to give our dog a loving home, but there are several pets living in shelters that are still waiting to be placed in their forever home. In today's post, I'm going to be sharing five tips on things you can do to keep your dog healthy and I'll be highlighting an amazing initiative from Hartz Mountain Corporation that aims to help animals living with foster families or in shelters and sanctuaries. Read on for my tips and more information on the Help Us Help Them initiative!
