Kinder Photo-Strip, Smile Booth and Farewell Summer


Why is it that every year we approach the end of summer wondering where the summer went? Well I tell you that this year, I feel it even more so and I’m not sure why. If you’re in Southern Ontario, maybe you can relate when I blame it on the weather? I felt like we were waiting for summer to come and it hardly came; we’ve had some strange summer weather for sure. Or perhaps it’s that we’re often just too busy doing and we never sit down to say, “ahhh, summer!” I’m not sure. Maybe “do nothing once a week” should be on the summer bucket list?

I think it’s because as a child school always started for me in September that the end of August was always synonymous with end of summer for me. Thankfully we still have a week and a bit left of summer in my mind. Chloe is still at camp as I write this however we pick her up today and then Monday we head out to visit my parents for the second time this summer. We’re meeting my sister and her children up there for the final hurrah of summer, though I’m a bit sad that this year my brother and his family won’t be there since they’re back in Australia. It will be loud and busy and the kids will love playing with their cousins. Hopefully they play nice so that the adults can sit on the wrap porch and visit; I’m going to make sure that I take some time to really savor that “ahhh, summer” moment.


If you are looking to share your favorite summer moments…

KINDER® invites you to try their new Facebook “photo-strip” app starting. I haven’t tried it out yet but apparently it’s pretty simple:

  1. Step 1: Fan KINDER® on Facebook
  2. Step 2: Start your photo-strip {click Smile Booth}
  3. Step 3: Upload your photos
  4. Step 4: Choose a fancy KINDER® frame
  5. Step 5: Choose a filter (make yourself look silly)
  6. Step 6: Save & share 
  7. Add #kindersmiles to any photo-strip and you can see your smile in the app’s gallery view.

Farewell Summer
And so summer is coming to a close, so my participation in the #KinderMom program. I’ve enjoyed working with Kinder since…was it 2011? I love Kinder chocolate, and I love that Kinder supports the Children’s Miracle Network. Thank you for a great partnership and I will happily continue to support you by eating your chocolate!
