Be brave. You hear this all the time and it can mean different things in different situations. I decided it was time to be brave and face my fear of heights. I was not jumping off bridges or doing anything extreme but I was stepping out of my comfort zone by doing the Sky High Adventure Park at the Holiday Valley Resort.
Summer is almost here and the weather is warming up. This is the best time of year to encourage everyone in my house to unplug from devices, reconnect with each other, and get outside more. Getting outside is great to reconnect as a family and reconnect with nature. This month is National Get Outdoors Month and is a perfect time to make family tech free time and getting outside a priority in your house.
The countdown until summer vacation has begun and that means day trips and exploring. It also means time to refresh your car for summer. I’ve partnered with Refresh Your Car® to bring you some tips to get your car in road trip shape and share some long-lasting fragrance to have your car smelling great all summer long.
Spring has been a long time coming and I am hoping it is finally here to stay. The spring weather brings everyone out and starts this energy that motivates us to do more. We open the windows and do spring cleaning. At our house we like to use the nicer weather to motivate us to get out and do more for the environment with small family fun activities that are easy for the entire family.

It is spring break time across the country and my kids are just starting their break this week. I was actually counting down the days until break because we all really need one. I have been using the Dosh App for almost a year now and I’m really excited to share with you fun ways to plan quality family time with your family and earn Dosh cash during your spring break.
Earlier this year I shared that I want to be more intentional with our family time. What better way to enjoy family then visiting Kettle Ridge Farm. Kettle Ridge Farm is all about family. From the people behind the tasting counter to the people that help you tap your maple tree, they are all about working together and being a family. I love this about Kettle Ridge Farm and I couldn’t wait to bring my family back for our pancake breakfast and our tree tapping.
If you are a parent of more then one child there will be moments when your kids arguing with each other will be a constant parenting battle. As a mom of three kids, I am always working on building and strengthening my kids relationships with each other. Helping your kids cooperate not only makes your house more calm, it builds their relationship, teaches them to respect each other, and with less kids arguing there is more time for family fun and connections.
Thanksgiving has come and gone and the frenzy of the holidays has kicked into high gear. I love the holidays. I love the lights and the decorating and creating memories with my family that connects us. From the family traditions, to the family get-together the holidays are an amazing time to focus on what is really important. This year we are starting a new family holiday tradition with the Adopt-A-Maple at Kettle Ridge Farm program.
There is something so special about getting cozy with your family during the holiday season. Picking a holiday movie to enjoy is a family tradition that helps our family celebrate the joys of the holidays. We watch a lot of holiday movies through December but we have a few family favorites that always make our list. These holiday family movies are classics in our home. They connect us and fill us with the holiday spirit all month long.
As a mom of school-age kids we have a lot of snacks in the house and I am always trying to find fun ways to teach kids healthy eating habits. My kids are always hungry and it is important for me to help teach them healthy eating habits. To do this, I like to give them the tools to make healthy choices. I believe the best way to teach is through fun hands-on experiences. I like to get my kids involved in the process and give them an opportunity to guide their learning. Over the weekend we had an opportunity to learn more about healthy eating habits and how to make good choices.
