L.A. Adventures in SAS Shoes

Do you ever get stuck in the mundane, doing the same things over and over again? Our family has, for sure. One day over Christmas break, I was ready to try something new. An adventure of sorts. Every woman knows when you are seeking adventure, you have to have the right shoes.  Fabulous, stylish, comfortable and appropriate for the adventure.  The Tour Mesh SAS Shoes that I wore, checked all the boxes (and bonus that these are red!!). As a mom and work-from-home entrepreneur, I often have the ...

Jesse Tree: A Wonderful Family Tradition

Many Christian families are feeling more disgusted with the over-commercialization of the Christmas holiday. Santa used to give you a paddle ball and some blocks. Now Santa can afford $200 Lego sets, a cell phone, and an NSA elf to spy on your children for 25 days before Christmas. Many religious families are trying to get back to the inherent meaning of the season, which, as my daughter’s Our Life in the Church textbook said that this was a time to “meditate on both past and future events...

As a parent, I think it is my responsibility to not only share my Faith but foster good relationships with my kids too. The best way to do this is by spending tim...

Fun in and Out of the Sun!

B'SD 14 Tishrei, 5779 September is the hardest month of the year, when Jewish college students struggle to help their professors to understand that "I understand that your class is valuable instruction time, but, hey, I need to miss the first three weeks of the new school year..." It's  dilemma that Jewish students worldwide must overcome as we commemorate our High Holidays/Jewish New Year season.

Our Story Land Adventures 2017

This summer (which seems like yesterday) we took our third annual trip to Story Land, but this time, we had FOUR kids with us! My youngest was just 2 months old when we made the trip this year.

It has been such a treasure watching the kids grow up and get something new out of Story Land every time we go. The first time we went was in 2015 and my youngest was barel...
