Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Jump for Joy!

 for more fun!

Are you aware there is a lot of history and tradition behind jelly beans? So much so two celebratory days have been set aside. The first is National Jelly Bean Day occurring on April 22 with Jelly Belly Jelly Beans being at the top of the list. After all, they are the #1 gourmet jelly bean in the world but even better than that, they are Made in America! The second day of celebration is coming right up inviting you to do more than simply appreciate these little candy gems! Load up your candy dishes but don't stop there.

July 31 is...
Jump! for Jelly Bean Day

Show your love for jelly beans by leaps and bounds! Inside, outside, wherever room allows for leapage and jumpage with or without jump ropes or trampolines! Make this a fun day but also a day for discovery. Venture 'outside the box' of the ordinary jelly bean into something different if you dare.
Jelly Beans have been popular since their creation, but Jelly Belly tapped a whole new generation when they created “Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans” for the Harry Potter world, and included such, um, odd flavors as ear wax, grass, vomit, and earthworm. We bring this up because Jump for Jelly Beans Day happens to fall on Harry Potter’s birthday, so your celebration should (cautiously) include some Bertie Bott’s.

Remember the candy dish full of jelly beans? Don't eat them all at once!
