I am memorized by Cirque du Soleil. The creativity, the costumery and the choreography! What those performers do on the stage is truly like magic. I have seen several Cirque du Soleil shows over the years including the local La Nouba and several traveling performances. Each is unique and does things I never thought possible before. Later this […]
This National Teddy Bear Day post is sponsored by Build-A-Bear Workshop. What is the name of your child’s special Teddy Bear? In our house, K’s is Pink Bear and Sissy has two Big Bear and Pink Bear. They are well-loved and a bit worn from lots of cuddles and tumbles in the washer, but my […]
Last week my family and I attended our very first Orlando City Soccer game — what a fun night! Our attendance was sponsored by Neutrogena who has partnered with MLS to raise awareness of the importance of skin protection on and off the field as part of the Choose Skin Health campaign.

When we first set out to teach our daughter how to ride her bike, I pictured a fun afternoon with a warm breeze laughing as she peddled faster and faster until she was riding around the block with ease. The reality of teaching her to ride a bike was anything but easy — she just […]

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 […]

A good book is the ultimate escape. And a library full of Danielle Steel books is the perfect get away. With books published in […]
I write a lot about quick and easy dinners because I really don’t love to cook and I am always trying to do about a dozen things when I need to be getting dinner on the table. I want to spend as little possible on dinner prep so we can actually sit down to enjoy eating dinner together. I have just discovered a way to make my slow cooker prep even simpler. For a home cooked meal, it doesn’t get easier than this slow cooker pot roast recipe.
Although I am admittedly not a morning person, I do love the anticipation of a new day. Each day is like a blank canvas. There is so much we can do in just one day, sometimes we just need a little extra inspiration. Like a hot cup of coffee to jump-start the day. For even […]
