How To Disinfect Our Indoor Air

Something that we don’t often think about is the air we breathe and how that affects us. With the introduction of using extremely harsh chemicals in cleaning products, furniture and clothes around the second world war, our homes have been on a steady incline to being very polluted. Indoor air pollution is at an all time high. In fact, as of 2002 it is estimated that 20% of deaths in children under 5 around the world are due to acute...

5 Reasons Why You Should Travel During Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day is a bittersweet long weekend. On a sad note, it signals the end of summer, on a good note the beginning of fall – one of my favorite seasons, while celebrating all of the social and economic progress our American workers have made to better our country by increasing our quality of living. Clearly the good outweighs the bad here so… My friends, this is not the weekend to sit at home! It is the perfect time to get up...

7 Ways to Show Support To A Single Mom

I have always respected single parents. Parenting is hard enough when there are two parents involved, but when you are maintaining a career, running a household, and being a 24 hour a day taxi service/chef/housekeeper for your kids on your own, that takes parenting to a whole new level. I had always known being a single parent is hard, but I never fully understood how hard until I became one myself 10 months ago. After being a stay at...

Out of the Darkness, Into the Light, Let’s End Domestic Violence

I thought it was hard to write the Behind The Scenes post, but this one is proving even more difficult to write. Telling the truth can be really hard sometimes. Speaking up about some things can be really scary. But after you take that first step, after you reach out for help for the first time, an incredible sense of relief comes over you.

6 Ways Travel Is Healing

One of the many things I love about travel is how healing it truly is. Life can be overwhelming, scary, painful even – how many times a week do you mutter the words “I need a vacation” in response to these emotions?! I think I may say it daily… Sometimes the pain is so strong, the overwhelming feelings are so deep that travel is the only way to heal, allowing you to leave everything behind and give yourself some space to refresh...

My Paris Cut Hair Experience

Choosing a hair salon and finding that perfect stylist that just knows how you like it (and makes you look stunning) can be very very tricky. Especially if you are new to having to color your hair, like I am. Thanks to life (ahem… my kids) a few years ago, the time came to begin coloring my hair. Being a Leo through and through, I take a lot of pride in my hair and was simply not ready to be grey!! So my search began for the perfect...

Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes, I have been re-learning life, as a single mom. I’m not gonna lie, it has been a really tough transitional period, for all of us. And even though I know it is just a season, one that has nearly passed, it has been an important time for healing, learning, and growth for myself and my children. I’m sure you have noticed I have not been posting as consistently as I normally do. That is because I have been struggling to...

Family Travel: The Sailor Circus in Sarasota Florida

Lately, I have been sharing all about our multigenerational family vacation to Sarasota Florida. We had such a great time there! One of the most spectacular things we did while in Sarasota was to attend The Sailor Circus. In my post on The Ringling Museum, I explained how Sarasota has a rich history in the circus arts. It is not only a place for people to come and see and learn about everything circus, but it is also an...
