Let’s talk about fundraising. We all have been involved in this is some way or another. It all starts when we are little…raising funds for school, sports, hobbies, etc. It teaches us about helping others, and reminds us that when we all get together, anything is possible. But how does it feel when the funds… Read More Thank You.
Traveling with kids is always a challenge, especially when there is not a safe place for them to sleep. It’s easy when they are little, but when you outgrow the portable beds, things become hard, and you have to get creative. Up until now we’ve had a love/hate relationship with our travel bed, the Privacy… Read More Our New Travel Bed, Designed By Parents
The first three months (yes, I said months!) of the quarantine were brutal. They were filled with uncertainty, fear, pain, anger and an overwhelmingly sense of helplessness.

Well, this year did not disappoint! It was anticipated to be a muggy and wet night, but… Read More Dead Enders And…A Tornado?
7… where have the years gone?! Every birthday with any of my kids is always bittersweet. We are always so proud of how far they have come and are amazed at the little people they are turning out to be. But, my heart also hurts that time is creeping away. As that saying goes, the… Read More Celebrating 7
Logan got to experience something truly magical, something that will forever hold a warm place in all of our hearts. On Monday morning, surrounded by the kindest people, kids and families just like ours, she paddled out into the ocean and surfed. Yes, our sweet little girl who cannot walk yet on her own caught… Read More One Perfect Day, For Sure
Every day I see at least one post about how important is it to take some time for yourself, that self care is not selfish. It’s usually a beautiful picture of a mom at the beach, or the spa, or enjoying a cup of actual hot coffee in a serene setting. For a moment I’m… Read More The Self Care Revolution…I Want In!
Bone broth is always available in our house. It’s either in the fridge, or frozen in mason jars or ice cube trays for easy access. It is liquid gold over here!
