Best Ways To Remember Someone By

 Remembering special people who are no longer a part of our lives – either through death, or moving away, or some other situation that prevents them from being near – can be a melancholy experience. At first, you’re met with happiness, as you remember the memories made, but then there is a bitter sadness as you are left with the notion that you won’t be able to make any more. Either way, remembering others is important as you pay tribute to how they shaped your life. With that being said you want to make sure your honoring the memory of others in the best way possible. Here are some great ways you can remember someone by. 

A Memorial Bench

Erecting a bench in a beautiful spot is a great way for not only you, but also the local community, to remember somebody special who has passed, and because of this it has become a very popular way to commemorate people. 

The bench can be placed in a location that was meaningful to the deceased, so that they’re symbolically among the scenery that they enjoyed in their lifetime. Sitting on these benches can also create a truly intimate experience, as they can make you feel deeply connected to the person you have lost. There are many companies out there that can make bespoke benches, but a budget option is to source the bench yourself from a garden store and organize a plaque engraving yourself.

Have an Annual Day To Celebrate Them

A good way to celebrate someone’s life and to remember them fondly with joy and optimism is to allocate a specific day to celebrate their life and achievements. A funeral from can serve this purpose, but you can also hold events on the deceased person’s birthday. The goal with events like this is not to mourn the dead, but to rejoice in the life that they lived, and acknowledge and thank them on how they have touched and affected your own life. 

Turn Their Clothing into a Teddy Bear

Converting left-over clothes into a keepsake stuffed animal is a fantastic way to prolong a loved one’s memory. Perhaps they had a signature outfit or a favorite garment with an interesting pattern. If so, this can be transformed into a cute, and comforting teddy that anyone can snuggle up with and enjoy, and it makes a great gift.

Providing you have voice recordings of your loved one, there are also options to install a device that can play captured audio when you squeeze the teddy, too. This can be a great way to preserve the voice of a loved one, and to hear their voice when you’re feeling down. This idea is also suitable to remember people who may be moving far away, to ensure that you always have a piece of them close to home.

Build a Shrine 

Shrines are a typically Greek and Mediterranean way of memorializing someone after their death, but it is also a great idea for other ethnicities to follow. Services are usually held at a shrine on the 40th day after the funeral and then annually following that, meaning that their memory will be continuously honored and preserved. 

Shrines are usually beautiful arrangements of religious imagery, and flowers and can be built almost anywhere; a corner in your house, a patch in the garden or even in the countryside.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
