Tips from RockIt Mom:

Where have all the tips been this summer? Where are the fun easy healthy recipes? I know, I have taken full advantage of summer and the sun (finally) and enjoying my family and the site has been low on the totem pole of life.  Which is my point, do things for yourself and don’t feel “obligated” or “must-do”.

Tips from RockIt Mom:

1.
