RAINBOW HEARTS MURAL: VALENTINE’S DAY CRAFT

The social and political climate in our country over the past few months has been…a little crazy. Of course this isn’t a political post, and my contention has always been that you can and should vote for whomever you think is the best choice. That, however, doesn’t dismiss the fact that it’s been contentious and it feels like we as a nation are more divided than ever. But I realized, amidst everything going on, my home doesn’t have to feel…

AUTUMN TREE LIGHTS – TODDLER CRAFT

This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.  I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. I have a love/hate relationship with the fall season. It’s not completely magical like Christmas, but there’s something different in the air when the crisp breeze, accompanied by the smell of fallen leaves, smoke from the first chimney fires, and the sounds of Patriots football – blows…

I BELIEVE IN FAIRIES

Being a mom of two is super fun, but one downside is that I don’t always get to have special one on one time with my kiddos. However, my little lad and I get to play every morning while our one year old lass takes her morning nap. A couple of days ago, while he and I were sitting on a couch reading, he saw a bright light on the ceiling and asked what it was. I knew instantly that…

Today’s post about one of my favorite scenic road trips in Rhode Island has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are, as always mine alone.  #RoadTripOil #CollectiveBias Being a stay at home/work mom means that I, obviously, spend a lot of time at home. Somedays I feel like the soundtrack of my life should begin with Etta James singing Don’t Get Around Much Anymore. But when cabin fever strikes, or my kids are having a…
