Packit Cool This Summer and All Year Long!

We’re big on cooking and eating healthy so packing lunch is an almost every day thing for us. Sometimes we pack dinner leftovers for lunch the next day, or we do meal preps, or we pack some fresh fruits and veggies we get at the Farmer’s Market. We’ve found one of the best way to keep our food fresh and appetizing is with PackIt’s freezable bags and customizable bento containers. Below are some of the products we’ve sampled.

A Silicon Valley Staycation

Making sure we get some time to unwind and slow down in our daily lives is a must for a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes planning a big trip out of town might take too much time and effort to plan out. This is when we prefer doing a nice staycation somewhere in the Bay Area instead of dealing with traffic and rushing to and from a further location. One perfect spot for a staycation is Four Seasons Palo Alto. They are centrally located and offer anything and everything you need to get that much needed R&R.

A Holiday Stay in Temecula

For the Holidays, we wanted to do a small getaway with family somewhere not too far and not too crowded. Since we have family in the South, we decided Temecula would be the perfect place for a visit.

Temecula is known as the Wine Country of Southern California located an hour Southeast of LA and an hour Northeast of San Diego. Wineries fill the hillsides and a lot of history can be found in Old Town Temecula with buildings dating from the 1800s.

Everything I Know About Cloth Diapering
