The Perfect Summery Day Drink

Don’t let the title of this post scare you into thinking this is only a “day drink.” No one is saying you can’t drink it at night too! It’s so good you’ll be making variations around the clock.

Mojitos & Munchkins Gives Back

Dear World, Thanks to a recent post by Eventbrite, I’m left reflecting on how I choose to give back and better this universe I live in. Charitable donations have always been held close to my heart, and as a family, we have chosen companies and organizations that we dedicate a portion of our finances to each year. When it comes to making donations, it easily feels like there are thousands of people, families, groups, organizations, and companies that are in need of our contributions. Every day as I scroll through my Facebook feed, there is tragedy, trauma and unmistakable pain. My...

Spotlight Series:: A Family Blog That You Will Fall In Love With

My spotlight this week shines brightly on a New England family that loves to live in the moment. Will and Sam’s Fam is a refreshing site that chronicles the crazy lives of two parents who have no idea what they’re doing but have managed to fake their way to success thus far. They claim to have a messy house, dirty dishes, piles of laundry and a love for the life they’ve created together. By all accounts, we may just be long lost friends. After all, I also have a messy house, dirty dishes, and piles of laundry. Hmmmm…. Do you think, just...

The Unfathomable Thing I Did Today While My Girls Played…

Today, I read a book. TWO chapters of a book, to be exact. And I didn’t put the book down once, not even when my two year old was crying that her sister took a toy OR when my four year old started screaming at her sister that she was going to “Tell mommy on you.” While I would be lying if I tried to say I was actively watching or paying attention to what they were doing, from what I gather, my two daughters had an elaborate set up that crossed different environments, and they used their imaginations to role play...

Children’s Book Review:: “The Magic Of My Name”

In a market where there are countless children’s books to choose from, there are certain features that set some apart from others. Personalization is one of those items. Any time you can personalize a book to make a child feel like the author had them (and only them) in mind, you are guaranteed to get smiles and extra nighttime snuggles. That is exactly what I got from my son after he received The Magic Of My Name. Created by The Story Tailors, who believed in the right for all children to experience magic, this book tells the tale of how a child got...
