Summer can be so busy and hectic! It feels like I blink and the kids are back in school. With five kids, we always have so many things going on.
Sometimes it’s hard to just relax and enjoy the moment. When life seems to be getting away from you, sometimes the best thing to do is to stop and relax by putting your feet up and enjoying some Orange Russian Cream!
Orange Russian Cream is a combination between heaven and a sunny summer day. The cream is so light and smooth and the juicy zing from the orange juice and zest makes it so you can’t help but smile as you eat it.
