For her 7th birthday, Journey decided that she wanted a magic-themed party. She also wanted to use her birthday to help put smiles on the faces of patients at the local children’s hospital. Here’s what it looked like when we tied to two ideas together and created a party that was fun and fulfilling. Continue reading
The only time I ever care to live vicariously through celebrities is when they throw extravagant over-the-top parties. The Kardashian-West clan did just that last weekend as they celebrate baby North’s first birthday with a Kidchella-themed party. Continue reading
Mother’s Day is a few weeks away and I’ve got my gift list ready! Let’s hope my husband really reads this blog like he claims he does. With gift ideas ranging from $15 to $500, this list has plenty of great options. Continue reading

My daughter Journey had so much fun helping others on her birthday last year that she decided to host another Give BIG Birthday Party! To celebrate her 8th birthday, Journey is asking family, friends and you to celebrate with her virtually by making a donation to Water.org.

Monday is the first day of the long winter break. While I love spending this extra time with Journey, keeping her busy can be quite challenging. So this year, we are going to use the break to learn more about our family—and have some fun along the way. I’m sharing our project so that you can do it too!
Since today is National Cookie Day (yes, there really is such a thing), I decided to try a new cookie recipe. I made them last night and sent them to school for Journey’s class to enjoy.
