Bidding adiéu to 2014

Some days never seem to end – then all of a sudden a year has passed! When I created this blog late last year, I had no idea the opportunities that it was going to open up for me in 2014. The creation of my diary has led to relationships, business opportunities and a strong sense of self. I honestly did not know what to expect from my endeavor, I simply needed an outlet in a very tumultuous time of my life.

Good morning Monday! Start it off with a dose of {B} Informed. If you are new here, {B} Informed is a snippet of newsworthy stories from the past week – from a mom’s point of view. Get your current events fix in a tiny portion of your free time and without having to scour the Internet! № 1. Amazon Prime to cost 99 dollars a year I know it was inevitable, though I just hate when prices go up for services that we love. Time to reevaluate if it’s still worth it for all you families out there! I know some people were just on the brink of whether or not Prime was worth it – this might send them over the edge of NOT subscribing. We use it enough that I think we’ll opt to keep it.
