Moving With Kids

Tips for moving with kids and how to keep them involved in the process.

When people check in with us since our move, the focus tends to be on how the kids are doing with all the change. Understandably. Big changes are hard on everyone, but especially children. Two moves in three months was HARD. There’s no getting around it. But I think my kids handled it like […]

The Full House House


Silly or not, the number one thing I wanted to do during our visit to San Fransisco was to find the Full House house. It topped my bucket list, for sure. Like most people in my age group, I grew up on the iconic, family friendly show. Our family always looked forward to sitting […]

PWAP // For Kids


Our kids are spoiled rotten. They have a life here in America, that children around the world wouldn’t even know to dream of – it is beyond their wildest imagination. While I am keenly aware of that every day, the Christmas season seems to hold a constant reminder everywhere I look. We seem to […]

Winter Faves


What do you do when you catch your self moping or complaining about seemingly everything? I always stop this negative behavior in my kids and tell them to quickly list 3 things that they are grateful for. They also help remind me of the same thing when I’m having a grumpy day. I feel […]
