#ChooseFun, Rest, And Be Inspired Aboard The Carnival Paradise!

Disclosure: Thank you Carnival for hosting me aboard your beautiful vessel. All opinions expressed are my own! Can I be honest? I was very nervous to step so out of my comfort zone and leave my family for five days. I talk a big game about the importance of self care and carving out time for ourselves, but truthfully, I'm really bad at it. I know my family is more than capable, but I value my work as a mom…

PNW Trip Inspiration!

It is wild to me when I consider how much our lives have changed this year!  Obviously, the biggest change this year has been our move from Portland to Jacksonville.  We love living here, it is such a nice fit for our family to be so close to the beach.  However, I couldn’t be more thankful for the time we had in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and I can’t recommend you visit the area enough.  There is so much beauty…

Visiting Chicago With Kids!

We loved visiting Chicago with our sons, we've gone several times. Soo, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite things to do there!1) Where to stay: I suggest instead of staying downtown, you stay at the new Great Wolf Lodge! Downtown hotel parking can be quite spendy, so I like to drive in or take public transportation. The indoor water park is so fun! 2) Visit the Shedd Aquarium- This is a given, I suggest you order…
