Spring Break. That magical week coveted by students and teachers alike, yet often despised by parents. For many, Spring Break means finding daycare for children too young to stay home, or taking a week off to stay home with them yourself. The solution? Spend your Spring Break at Walt Disney World!
Spring Break at Walt Disney World has a lot to offer. The weather is perfection, the parks are less crowded than during the holidays, and the Epcot International Flower & Garden…Continue

The third degree is a euphemism for the "inflicting of pain, physical or mental, to extract confessions or statements"...No one knows the true origin of the term ~From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Well I can tell you the origin of the word came from a mother and more importantly from one that gave birth. Truthfully I should have started this blog 22 months ago but I guess you could say I got kinda busy. I started my journey to motherhood the "modern way." My boyfriend and I lived…Continue

I stood in front of the mirror and cried. I didn’t recognize the woman before me.

It is a tough decision, but just like all things in life, this deserves a truly weighted decision. Manage the pro's and con's of keeping that friend around or ditching them for good.
Everyone has there own reasons for wanting to ditch a friend. I will let you come…Continue

There is many a besotted couple that only wine on Valentines Day because of the pressure to make this day special. The rest of the three hundred and sixty-four days of the year they rely upon other sorts of spirits to provide that warm and fuzzy buzz, so when this holiday focused on Love rolls around every February, these once a year wine drinkers are left staring aimlessly at the wine aisle with no clue what wine to pair with their impending evening of…

△We all know what it's like to get super busy and then realize a holiday it just around the corner. I am usually really good at keeping up with holidays and being prepared because I know family and friends enjoy getting updates from our little family. This year...not so much. I realized yesterday how soon Valentine's Day is and I didn't do my cards! I set up a quick photo shoot space, started cutting out hearts and made a few graphics to print out, promised the family I would cook…Continue

I recently had a discussion with some of my family about the boundaries I set for myself in terms of what I keep. I have one bookshelf in my living area and it is divided up into sections; organizing books, business books, social media books, travel books, hiking guides, and of course, fiction books to keep and some are in a "to read" section.
I've been reading a lot and while I borrow a lot of books from the library, it means that my book shelf recently runneth over. Instead of…Continue

I’m ready, ready for the laughing gas
I’m ready, I’m ready for what’s next
I’m ready to duck, I’m ready to dive
I’m ready to say ‘I’m glad to be alive’
I’m ready for the push
In the cool of the night
In the warmth of the breeze
I’ll be crawling around
On my hands and knees
I’m ready, ready for the…Continue
