Summer is for fun activities, vacations, swimming, and also some relaxation. While summer is hectic and can have a lot of rushing around at times, it also is a time to slow down and re-energize. In my opinion, there is nothing better than a summer night curled up on the couch watching a movie. I personally love watching movies with my friends and family. I live for movie marathons. So I decided to give at least five of my personal favorite movies for your viewing pleasure this summer!

1. Any Marvel movie.


I realize most people have seen most of the Marvel movies, however, having a Marvel movie marathon is perfect for summer! You can stretch the movies out and watch them with your family and friends! These are perfect for families to watch together! There are loads of laughter, action, adventure, and some heartwarming moments through all of the Marvel movies! Plus if you finish the marathon in time, you can go see Endgame in theaters at the end of it!

2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle


This movie is hilarious! It is perfect for any movie night. This movie is guaranteed to make you laugh. The cast is perfect together and everyone gives a great performance! Gather the family around and enjoy this modernized Jumanji!

3. How To Train Your Dragon


This is probably my favorite animated movie. Usually when an animated movie takes off and then they make a sequel to it, the sequel is never very good. However, with How To Train Your Dragon, that is not the case. The trilogy gets better with every movie. This movie is great for kids and adults! Another great movie to watch with the family!

4. The Greatest Showman


This is a great movie! It might be iffy for some people because it is a musical, but I promise this is so entertaining! The music is fantastic, as is the choreography, and the acting! Another great movie for the family on a summer night!

5. Harry Potter


Another great option for a movie marathon would be the Harry Potter movies! Again, most people have seen these. However, if you have a rainy weekend or a weekend to relax these are great to have a movie marathon on those types of weekends. The magic, friendship, love, and sense of wonder in these movies make them perfect to watch with the family or even by yourself.

These were just my personal favorite movies! Hope you enjoy them!

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
