Adventures

This is a sponsored post. Several years ago, I began a life changing quest to find more ways to incorporate reading into our daily lives. Those early days were filled with rambunctious toddlers and a little baby. It was a strange thing to chase after with...

My love for Book Character Halloween costumes can be directly linked to my own childhood. Yes, this is a classic case of "reliving my childhood through my children". See, when I was a kid, we didn't celebrate Halloween. In fact, the first time I ever...

Several days ago, I received news that left me discouraged and sad. I had been working towards an opportunity I was super excited about. I had had three interviews and they each had gone so well, it never occurred to me I wouldn't get the...

Several weeks ago, I asked my kids, "If you could ask an Olympic Athlete anything, what would you ask?" We created a list of questions and then we began to seek out Olympians. In our family, Olympians are heroes. They are role models; my kids...

It's no surprise, that around here, we LOVE the Olympic Games (you can read about our 2016 Summer Olympic Games fun here). Our entire family gets SUPER into it. It's been almost a entire year since the 2016 Summer Games, and my kids, who are...
