Over 1.5 billion Peeps will be consumed this Easter.
I don’t get it. I find them to be rather disgusting. I don’t mind marshmallows. What I mind is marshmallows covered in furry, fuzzy-like sugar glitter. Just ew! People enjoy them when they are stale. To that I say, why would leaving something out for a few days, thus making them stale, in turn make them better? That makes no sense to me.
They certainly are cute, totally fun to look at. That makes them a decoration, not food. They belong in the trash in my book, not in Easter baskets.
If Peeps float your boat, more power to you! I believe that stat should be altered- 1.5 billion Peeps will be purchased this Easter. Not everyone is eating those cute, little Marshmallow impostors ;)
Today in Kent!

Thomas Rhett’s new album comes out next month…
Rascal Flatts' Jay DeMarcus's memoir, Shotgun Angels: My Story of Broken Roads and Unshakeable Hope, hits shelves this month.

My ultimate goal is that the book will encourage people that no matter where they are in their lives, they can find hope, comfort and strength in their faith.”

The weather is finally warming up. With that being said, let’s get outside!
I love taking a walk, a run, a jog, a whatever- outside! There is nothing like breathing in the fresh air. The Akron area has so many parks for you to go and enjoy.
Right by the station is Hardesty Park. I have visited this park many times for Pet Expo, Art Expo and other community events, but I never thought to head on over for one of my walk/jogs. In the past year I have been over there numerous times and the park has a wonderful track around the park, a fun playground in the center and a pavilion for parties and more.
I really enjoy the days I can get outside for my exercise and I love that Akron has these parks available to us. From what I see at Hardesty- it is well maintained and I feel safe. So, put on your tennies, and take a walk, jog or run today. It is supposed to be beautiful!
