The month of May marks many exciting events including The Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day, the unofficial start to summer. But at Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy, there is one May holiday that seems to shine brighter than the rest: Mother’s Day! After all, Mom is always the one to take care of us when we are sneezing and sniffling, right? To celebrate this special holiday, we decided to dedicate this month’s Fan Spotlight to Kristyn Merkley, one busy Mom who loves Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy almost as much as she loves her three adorable daughters!

When did you start your website? Over 2.5 years ago!
How long have you wanted to be a mother and designer (we say designer because your new house is gorgeous!)?
I’ve wanted to be a mom since I was a little girl! I am so happy to have 3 adorable kids and one on the way. I’ve always loved decorating my house, and love making it a home.
What is your favorite part about being a busy mother and why?
Being a mom brings me so much happiness. Most days I end up exhausted but I wouldn’t have it any other way if it meant I couldn’t be with my children all day long and having fun creating with them.
What are some of the challenges in keeping your family happy and healthy?
It’s hard to keep little ones happy and healthy when they are all over the place, touching everything in sight, and playing with other children. We just try to make sure we are washing our hands constantly as well as loading up on vitamins!
What is your stay-healthy philosophy?
Our stay-healthy philosophy is to keep the germs away!!
What is most comforting for you when you’re sick?
That I have a good husband that can help take care of me and the kids.
What do you hate most about being sick?
I do not like that I feel like I cannot be a good mom when I’m sick. I also do not like that the sickness often moves from one family member to the next in our family since we’re always together.
How did you discover Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy?
I always knew that zinc was good for you, but my husband’s dad is a doctor and the second we start to feel anything coming on, he’s always recommended Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy. It’s been the “go to” product in our home for many years!
What is your advice to other moms who juggle between career, parenting, home-making and staying healthy?
It’s important to take care of yourself, your family and your health. Make sure your entire family gets the rest they need and load up on a multivitamins to help keep your body’s defenses up.
