Before we scheduled our trip, I made the mistake of asking people about their experience with @legolandflorida. {Hosted} I was told that it was small and more fun for toddlers. They said my 10 and 14 year old wouldn't really enjoy it. Even though Falynn was ecstatic about it, I was honestly expecting to be disappointed. I will be the first to admit that I was VERY wrong. We all loved it! There was something for each of us to enjoy and all three of my girls can't wait to go back! Our first trip to Legoland will definitely not be our last. Today on the blog, I’m talking about why we loved it even more than Disney! You can read all about it by clicking the link in our bio or swiping up in stories. .

Before we scheduled our trip,...

Imagine being in your home, taking care of your baby and suddenly being ordered to leave. Imagine being told you could take only one small bag and everything else would be seized. Imagine being packed into a cattle car for days with no food or water or even room to move. Just a bucket in the corner, to be used as a bathroom and a tiny window for ventilation. Imagine people dying on that cattle car, right next to you. Imagine arriving at a concentration camp and immediately having your baby torn from your arms. Imagine having a number tattooed on your arm, to be used as your “identification”. Imagine finding out your Mother, husband and baby were killed for no reason at all,  aside from the fact that they were Jewish. No, this isn’t fiction. This is what it was like for my Auntie Rose and millions of other Jews during the Holocaust. Today on the blog, I’m talking about how it affected my family, both the survivors and those that were taken from us because they were too young, too old, too sick or too weak to work. January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let’s use this day as a day to reflect on what happened, and remind ourselves that people are people, regardless of their religion, race, or beliefs and we should all treat each other with respect. Never again. .

After yearsssssss of begging us to take her to @legolandflorida, we finally made it! {Hosted} This was Falynn’s 7th birthday trip. I have so much to say about our experience. But first, I have to go through over 1,000 photos 🤦🏻‍♀️. Does anyone else take way too many pictures on family vacations?

In 2017, tired of my debilitating anxiety disorder, I went to see a new doctor. She was sure my anxiety was the result of a medical condition. After routine bloodwork, I was told I had a vitamin D deficiency. But that’s it. I left without any more answers than I walked in with. It wasn’t until 2 years later when my friend DM’ed me to tell me that she and a friend (who both suffer from anxiety) had the same results, that I began thinking there must be a connection between anxiety and vitamin D deficiency. Today on the blog, I’m sharing why some studies show that a lack of vitamin D could be linked to anxiety and depression. I think what I found will surprise you. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, have you ever been told you’re vitamin d deficient? .

Let’s talk about family vacations... #gifted I struggled for years with the amount of time it took to pack up to go back home. There were always dirty clothes all over the floor and while I tried to pack it all into those hotel provided plastic laundry bags, 1) they were plastic and we are trying our best to do better for our planet and 2) they rip so easily, so we often wound up with dirty clothes spilling out in the car (yuck). A couple of months ago, I was watching a friend’s Instagram stories and she was talking about the @swoopbags she uses for her son’s toys. I immediately had an idea and knew I had to get one. 
On our last vacation, I opened up my large swoop bag and left it flat in the corner of our hotel room. We used it as our “laundry corner”. We instructed the kids (and ourselves) to drop our dirty laundry in the middle of the flattened Swoop bag. When it was time to pack up, I just swooped the bag, tied it and voila… it literally saved me all of the aggravation of finding and picking up all of the clothes and trying to find something to carry it all in. Don’t forget to check out the blog for more family travel hacks and a quick video on how I fit all 5 of our clothing into one small suitcase! I put the link in my bio! .

Did you know that 1 in 8 Americans (that’s 40 million Americans) struggle with food insecurity? As a Mom, those numbers are terrifying. No person should ever go hungry. I’m honored to share that Walmart and Feeding America® are doing something about it! Now through May 20th, you could help secure a meal by doing something that you’re probably already doing. When you purchase a select item at a Walmart store or at Walmart.com, you’ll help secure a meal through Feeding America for families in need. Join me in participating in Walmart’s 6th Annual “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign.

“Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” is a long-standing effort in which Walmart aims to end food insecurity in local communities across the US by partnering with Feeding America, brand suppliers and customers to help secure meals for those in need.

During our last trip to Walmart, I was able to pick up the following 6 participating items:

McComick Original Taco Seasoning Mix

Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice: Spanish Style

Birds Eye Broccoli Florets

Birds Eye Sweet Corn

Pace Chunky Salsa

Gold Peak Sweet Tea

Alongside some of our favorite ingredients, I was able to create this Taco Bowl Bar for my family, which is always a huge hit! During checkout, I also chose to donate additional $ to the campaign and I encourage you to do the same. Every dollar helps! You can find all of the participating items here.
