    How Much Seltzer Water Can You Have?

    Sometimes there’s nothing like a carbonated beverage that, more than not, just pairs nicely with our meals.

    Nowadays, when you visit your favorite local grocery store, taking a trip down the pop aisle, you’re likely to see a slew of seltzer waters, like LaCroix, Bubly, Aha, Perrier, the list could go on. For those looking to cut back on other pops like Coke and Pepsi, but still wanting to get the carbonation, it can be a decent substitute. I recently came across an article though that while still getting the benefits of hydration, at the end of the day, there’s nothing better than straight up water.

    Life’s Moments – The Podcast is Back!

    One of the great mediums of content creation these days is podcasting. In order to expand the reach of what I am planning on building here, I wanted to also revamp the former Script-Notes Show, into The Mitten Dad Show. Admittedly, it’s been a little while since I last published an episode, so there may be some rust, but I think you’ll appreciate the story that I had to share in the first episode of being back, called Life’s Moments.

    If you weren’t a prior subscriber to The Script-Notes Show, I would definitely appreciate a like and subscribe to the podcast if you feel so inclined. Of course, like many other podcasts like to say, if you also feel so inclined to leave a five star review on your favorite platform if that is in option, I would greatly appreciate that as well, as that helps with reach.

    As mentioned in the show notes and episode, I am looking to make this a collaborative effort as well (as well as on the site here too), so if you are open to sharing your life’s moments, tips, stories, and more, I would love to feature it, so indeed be sure to reach out! Thank you, as always, for your support!

This iconic festival usually takes place in the first part of every July, with events of all kinds, for all ages. The region is renowned for cherry orchards, and retailers like Cherry Republic have since sprouted up in numerous locations! While the peak of cherry season can vary depending on where you live, typically, the best time to bring home cherries is mid-July. However, once you get some home, the clock starts ticking how long they’ll keep. What are some of the best ways to store them? Read on for more!
