There’s no doubt that life looks a lot different for us now that we have three little ones at home. Kevin and I met six years ago around this time, we were full of energy and often dreamed of our future together. At the time we didn’t realize how much coffee we would consume as parents. Between the baby waking up multiple times in the middle of the night and our sweet little Alissa waking up every morning right before sunrise, Kevin and I don’t get much sleep. Thank God for Community® coffee.
Honestly, thinking about the deliciousness of the Community® coffee 37-ounce canister of American Classic™ Blend, which can be found exclusively at Walmart, is what gets us up early. Kevin and I often love to wake up very early right before the kids wake up and enjoy a warm cup of Community® coffee American Classic™ Blend, it’s enough to keep us going for the day. Community Coffee Company is a family-owned business that started in 1919. For four generations Community® has been selecting, roasting and perfecting their great-tasting blends of coffee. Community Coffee Company is the largest family-owned and operated retail coffee brand in America. Community® coffee beans are sourced from coffee farms around the globe.

Don’t just take our words for it, head over to your Walmart today and try the Walmart exclusive 37-ounce canister of the American Classic™ Blend for yourself. Community® coffee will make the perfect coffee for hosting and entertaining your guests this holiday season.
It’s been over a month since I made the decision to rock my natural hair texture. I’m not going to lie, it was hard at first but now I’m in love! I never thought that would ever happen.
When I was very young my mother relaxed my hair to make sure my coils were hidden. I grew up hating my “nappy” hair and kept it tucked away in weaves and wigs or relaxed for the bone straight look. I was thought to hid my coils and make sure my edges were brushed and gel as straight as possible.
I never thought anything of it until my curious little ones started asking questions about my fake hair. My son asked me numerous times why my hair (wig) came off and his didn’t. Beside being super embarrassing, I realized that I was hiding my hair because I was not proud of it. I also realized I have never took the time to love and learn what my hair likes to make it grow.
How could I teach my daughter to love everything about herself including her God given curl patterns if I myself didn’t love mine?
So as August 2019 I am officially what we like to call “natural”. I will no longer relax my hair to be straight ever again. I can’t say I will no longer wear extensions or wig but I will no longer use it as a means to hid my nature hair.

We love our little curly haired babies but getting their cute little curls to come out just right can be a bit of work. Luckily, we found a great product line – the new Just For Me® Curl Peace collection.
It is made specifically for children to leave their kinks, coils and curls tangle free, moisturized, and soft. Of course when we look for products for our curly haired kids we make sure there are natural ingredients. Luckily, their products are formulated with ingredients like shea butter, raw honey, and marshmallow root extract.
Our Daily Routine
We are still learning but here is how we get their curls on point:
The night before we wash and condition their hair with the Just For Me® Curl Peace ultimate detangling shampoo and conditioner. This leaves their hair feeling soft and ready for the morning style. Alissa goes to bed with protective styling.
In the morning we start with the easy to use Just For Me® Curl Peace 5-in-1 wonder spray. After some sprays and some combing their hair is ready to style.
Then we use the Just For Me® Curl Peace defining curl & coil cream. It is real easy to lather it through their hair and style it (for Alexander) or comb it up (for Alissa).
How do we know it works? When we leave the house people of all ages want to run their fingers through our kids’ hair.
We all know getting your little ones to sit and let you do their hair is difficult. That’s why getting a great product like the Just For Me® Curl Peace collection will allow you to make the most of the short time when your child sits still. Of course when raising a family you are always on a budget so Just For Me® makes their products affordable and accessible at local stores like Walmart, Sally Beauty, Target, and Beauty Supply locations.
