Easy Christmas Cupcakes

From the Desk of Santa Claus

Sending a personalize letter from Santa Claus is one of the ways I can communicate to my children on how proud I am of them, and how kindness can result (sometimes) to reward.

Spin on Advent Calendars with 25 Days of Giving

Tis the season to be giving back! If you know me, you’ll know that I love the Holidays season. It isn’t because of the presents, parties, or the amazing shopping sales, but it’s a holiday that brings people together, reminding us how blessed we really are. I was never really warm on the idea of…

Do your kids know how to get out of the car?

We’ve heard this story many times,  especially in the warmer months, parents who forget their kids in the car. Every time this topic comes up in my social circle, everyone swears that would never happen to them. They tell me the precautions they take to ensure it will never happen, whether it is singing along…

Fun Worksheets for Rainy Days

Lately my little ones have been obsessed with doing “hard work”. This is what they call it at school when they need to complete their workbooks. Mackenzie has been loving them so much, she has been asking to do them at home too! With everything online, it was hard to pinpoint where to start. I’m…

Spatial Relationships Activity

Summer has come and gone so quickly this time around. We spent so much time in the sun, stayed up past bedtime, and tried so many new fun activities.

Arya’s My Little Pony Birthday Party

My littlest girl turned two! To watch her develop greater independence, form sentences, bloom into her own little self has been one of the most rewarding experiences as a mom.

My Microblading Journey

I’m not one to shy away from anything that helps me survive the morning. I’ve been on the fence with microblading my eyebrows for the longest time! Eyebrows can make or break your look but they take too long to draw in! I should’ve taken a page out of Cindy Crawford’s book of eyebrows during…
