Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey – What I Imagined and More!

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey – What I Imagined and More!

I have wanted to go to the circus ever since I was a little kid. Unfortunately I was never able to go, until today. It’s always been more to me than elephants and acrobatics. To me, it’s about magic and mystery, family. I was so excited to tell my kids that we would be going […]

After a Long Day, it’s Time to Indulge in Godiva’s New Truffle Flights™ #TruffleTakeoff

10 Best Books That I Want to Pass Down to My Kids

10 Best Books That I Want to Pass Down to My Kids

When I was a kid, the library was my home away from home. I knew the Dewey Decimal system like the back of my hand and spent equal time browsing the fiction aisles of the kids section as I did the 741.5s in the adult non-fiction (that’s where the few comic book-type books would hang […]

Babywearing: Bonding with Baby (through the Toddler Years) #freedomtogether

Babywearing: Bonding with Baby (through the Toddler Years) #freedomtogether

With my first child, I was young and uneducated. I didn’t know anything about breastfeeding, attachment parenting, baby wearing, and was so very eager to get her doing things on her own, like sleeping in the crib. Things happen way too quickly. Moms, don’t rush it! You really have to take the time to swallow […]

Moving Baby To the Dinning Table – Stokke Tripp Trapp Review

Moving Baby To the Dinning Table – Stokke Tripp Trapp Review

One of the best things about moving into a bigger home is finally being able to sit down as a family for meals. Sadly, we just didn’t have the space before and my husband and I had to stand around a small table where our two children sat, and the baby was in a separate […]
