My daughters welcomed spring with a splash. But as they joyfully jumped into the pool for the first time this season, I took a look at our neglected porch. Layers of spring pollen and filth covered everything. After some serious cleaning, the patio was once again a clean slate. In partnership with Better Homes and […]
My kids don’t eat a lot of sandwiches because their lunch of choice is a meat and cheese roll up. I am not sure why they are anti bread (unless it is a dinner roll), but that’s what they like. Because turkey/cheese and ham/cheese rollups are a staple in our house I was intrigued when I learned […]
The end of the school year is an important rite of passage for students of all ages, but for graduating seniors it is a monumental occasion. One that should be celebrated and reflected upon. This year I will wish two special young ladies a happy graduation as they move onto the next chapter in their […]
Family adventure awaits in Florida’s Gulf County, and you are invited to explore what this quiet strip of coast has to offer for a chance to win a family vacation. I had the opportunity to visit GCFL two years ago, and my family is still dreaming of returning to the beautiful and untouched Florida treasure.
Whether you pack lunches the night before or the morning of, it is a chore. A chore I choose to take on so to make sure I know what my girls are eating during the day. We’ve come a long way in regard to school lunches, but not far enough. Revolution Foods is one company trying […]

Luxurious accommodations and beautiful beach-front scenery make these resorts perfect for anniversaries and honeymoons. From adventures like snorkeling and boating to relaxing on the beach there is something for every couple.
Cheese is one of my favorite food groups. In fact, I have this food theory that any food can be made better with either cheese or chocolate added. Go ahead, test me. I have yet to find a food (that I like to eat) that isn’t better with either cheese or chocolate (or both!). Carrots? […]
Life with eczema is a constant series of itchy, scaly, red patches. It’s miserable. But what’s more miserable than my skin itching, is watching my daughters scratch at their eczema patches. I know firsthand what it is like to itch all of the time, so it breaks my heart to know they are dealing with […]
On chilly evenings there is nothing better than snuggling with the family under a fuzzy blanket sipping hot chocolate and watching a good movie. It is one of my family’s favorite pastimes and the inspiration behind this Reindeer Hot Chocolate Gift Set. As the holidays get closer I find myself scrambling for gifts for everyone on […]
Before kids, I had this idea that date night would continue to be a regular thing. Not every week, but perhaps every other. And certainly once a month wouldn’t be too much to ask for. Fast forward two kids, and I am pretty sure it has been more than six months since our last date […]
When I was asked to review a few Barbie items I said sure. My daughters are always game for checking out hot new toys. I figured they would send a couple of dolls, and my girls would be thrilled. Imagine my surprised when a Barbie Dream House, four Barbie Fashionista Dolls, a Barbie Rainbow Hair […]

The Journey Home is going to make you say, “Awe!” Actually, it is going to make you say, “Awe” over and over again. I lost count at the number of times I said it during the trailer. A boy who befriends a polar bear cup, I mean what could be cuter? I mean really. The Journey Home is […]
There is nothing like curling up in a comfy spot with a blanket and a good book. The ability to be whisked away from reality and transported into another time and another place. A good book is the ultimate escape. And a library full of Danielle Steel books is the perfect get away. With books published in […]
