The first time my son and I were going to travel by plane, I did a lot of googling. It can be nervewracking to travel with a small child (my son was 3 months when we took our first flight) and it's hard to know what exactly to expect. A little over 2 years later, 12 flights and 6 security checkpoints later, I can say, it's still hard to know exactly what to expect when traveling with a child. Each of our experiences has been slightly different, particularly when it comes to TSA, but below are some tips that I believe will help any parent of a toddler prepare to take a flight.Read More
I don't know if I'm stuck in the past, longing for my glory days or if the first New Kids on the Block reunion tour was just that good but I am all about reunions and reboots. I have stayed up until midnight every single time Fuller House has a new season on Netflix and binge watch them til the wee hours. I've also watched Girl Meets World more times than I'm willing to admit and, yes, Will & Grace is on my Hulu List. I'm extremely curious to see how they're going to bring Rosanne back and now, the latest, Sister, Sister is coming back!Read More

I've always been a fan of Valentine's Day and not as a romantic holiday. I think it's because my parents always made it a special day for us, they made it about family and showing love to one another. I know, I know, we can show each other love any day (and we should) but I don't think you can ever go wrong with a special day that's all about expressing our love. I appreciated how my parents celebrated Valentine's Day with us and I plan to do the same with my son.Read More

Here are 3 reasons you should pursue your dreams as a mom...Read More
I am a really big believer in setting goals and it is a habit I plan to teach my son to have. As a toddler, he may be a little young to come up with his own goals, but I still think that setting family goals is important. My family goal for 2017, was for my son and me to do one new thing a week - whether it was at home or going on a new adventure. We had so many great experiences and, as a mom, this goal really challenged me to appreciate where we live and to be a little more crafty. If you haven't set family goals, I encourage you to do so. If you have older kiddos, you can include them in the process! If not, here are some goals that every family can set.Read More
