Momma Told Me: Somethings are best left untouched.


I hear a lot how gorgeous my photos are. I get asked what kind of camera I use, what my lighting rig is, what editing program I use. While I do, typically, do some sort of crude editing its usually with preloaded Windows programs, or free online software. I take all my photos in natural light- never with any artificial lights or rigs, and many of my photos are still shot on a smartphone or 14 MP point-and-shoot. For today's post I wanted to go even more organic. You see, sometimes I spend so much time staging, framing, and taking photos, I don't get to actually live in the moment of the story. So, thanks to YumEarth Organics, today's photos are a little less sparkly, but extra adorable.

I have been bowling in a league (sometimes as many as 3 leagues at a time) for 4 years now. I am telling you this because I greatly dislike bowling; I bowl for the social interaction. Bowling gets me out of the house for at least those designated hours a week and interacting with real people face to face (not that my online community isn't amazing.) The range of people in our core league is amazing. Last week one of our members turned 21, while we have some of our eldest nearing 80. There are single individuals, professional bowlers, first timers, girlfriends, couples, grandparents, families, and everything in between. My league is like my family, and that is precisely what I call Miss Edna.

Miss Edna is a delightful older woman with kids of her own long grown and several grandchildren. She is a former educator turned home childcare provider and has truly had a remarkable, and at times very tough, life. I knew from the moment I met her she was truly a special soul full of support, compassion, faith, and love. She always has a smile to offer and a hug to give whether you are a friend of 40 years or a complete stranger. Every afternoon Miss Edna walks from her house to the local Elementary where she picks up 5-8 children aged 4-10 and walks them to her home for after-school childcare.  Many of the children come from broken homes with single, hard working parents, or have special educational needs that make them otherwise difficult to place in traditional after school care.

Miss Edna relies on retirement income to get by and spends much of what she takes in from her children's parents on activities and events she plans to help make their year just a little more special. She rents bounce houses, drives them to the park, and holds seasonal parties out of her own pocket. She is an amazing human being, and so are the children she watches. So, when YumEarth informed me of their new Easter packaging and offered to send us some samples I new immediately I wanted to do something special for Miss Edna and her after-school kids. I headed into the local dollar store and spent about $35 to create some Easter baskets.
As a childcare provider, Edna is constantly reminded just how glorious sweets can be in a child's eyes. She has a very impressive rewards system involving raffle tickets and only hands out 'candy' as a reward for exceptional behavior or homework finished without delays. Even at that she tends to feel guilty. Most mainstream candy is littered with artificial colors and high fructose corn syrup. Modern kids seem keenly ware of the 'adults' movement for more natural foods that are labeled negatively (in their eyes) as better for them. I know I certainly believed, as a kid, if something was healthy/healthier, it wasn't going to be as tasty as it's less healthy counterpart. That being said, it's crucial these healthy alternatives keep fun and colorful packaging that mirrors their larger commercial competitors. YumEath Organics fruit snacks and candy are the perfect reward for Miss Edna's children.
Their products are all natural, dyed with ingredients such as organic pumpkin and carrots, gluten free, and possesses no chemical or artificial colors. YumEarth treats are also brilliantly individually packaged, with small items like gummies in kid sized pouches, great for school and on-the-go treats without the mess. Even more impressive, my favorite YumEarth treat, the Original and Sour Beans are also delightfully Vegan, adding an extra level of Eco-consciousness. Miss Edna is very careful what she gives her tiny charges before sending them home to their parents and was especially appreciative that all of the sweets in their Easter baskets were all-natural and gluten free.

On top of being my personal favorite organic candy pick, YumEarth is known for their seasonal packaging which makes for perfect party favors or classroom handouts. Many schools have strict 'no junk food' policies when it comes to classroom events and YumEarth offers several indulgent, single serve, treats for kids to maintain portion control and quality control when spoiling other people's kids. Grab one of 4 specially designed Easter packages of YumEarth Organics treats (Organic Pops, Sour Beans, Gummy Bears, or Gummy Fruits) at a Walgreens near you just in time for the holiday this upcoming weekend.

What Daughter Says: Not everything in life that's great is sold by a cartoon mouse. Kids are naturally sweet, shouldn't their treats be as well?
