Much Needed Quality Time, Meditation and Asana Flow

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to spend some one-on-one time with my 12 year old. As a parent with multiple children, it can be a challenge to give each child their own undivided attention with mommy. So, yesterday was pretty awesome.  Corey and I did something we both love - hike up Stone Mountain. My … Continue reading Much Needed Quality Time, Meditation and Asana Flow

DIY Fun: Party Craft Idea

A few months ago, my daughter convinced me to allow her to have a sleepover party for her 11th birthday. I was reluctant, but ultimately gave in knowing this was our last year in this school district and she was moving on to middle school and new changes soon. (Reminder:It’s not about you, Mom).

So, I decided that the best way to get through the party was to keep them engaged. I bought some age appropriate games, decided on food and beverages, and came up with a DIY craft idea that I thought the girls would love.

Christmas in Savannah

This year, I decided that the holidays would be spent very differently than what I am traditionally used to. For the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent time relaxing poolside in Orlando with family. I was not interested in slaving in the kitchen and then begging my kiddos to help clean up afterward. So, it worked out perfectly that I was able to join my extended family on a wonderful mini-vacation.
After having this amazing experience, Tamara and I set out to do somethingsimilar, but in a different city. We set our minds on Savannah and made it happen.

Our first full day there was on Christmas Eve. We set out for a day of adventure. We got lost exploring the historic district while taking pictures of our surroundings. There were so many amazing images tocapture.
