Hello All! Happy 4th of July (a little early)! Many of you have carnivals, parades, picnics, and fireworks planned for this weekend. This is one of my favorite holidays. A fun time to get friends and family together for some summer excitement. I am looking forward to my son's reaction to fireworks (it's his first time!) Enjoy have a safe and happy weekend!

This week we have found some great articles! The 'hot topic' of vaccinations is back! Please check out the article, "What's next for California's contentious vaccine law." These types of rulings could be coming to your state!

Another 'hot topic' featured this week focuses on pumping...and what an issue this is! Please read, "Every Mom Has the Right to Pump at Work, Period." As a mom who successfully breastfeed/pumped for a year (sometimes I don't know how I made it) I know I was one of the lucky ones who had enough breaks at work and a wonderful 'pump room' provided to me. Many moms are not so lucky and things need to change.

Lastly, if you are looking for a last minute 4th of July dessert, we have some great suggestions for you in: "25+ of the Best 4th of July Desserts - Thirty Handmade Days". Hopefully this will help make your holiday sweet!

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy issue #43!
