In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

Trigger warning: Abduction 
Courageous is not the first adjective I'd use to describe myself. I don't open up easily, especially when it comes to traumatic events in my life. But what blogging has taught me, is that writing can be cathartic. It can free us of the fear we hold onto. So I write. Mostly for me and my mental health. I don't always share the posts. I have over 20 drafts that will probably never be published. But there are some subjects that are important enough to share, so that other people don't make the same mistakes I do.  This particular situation has taken me almost twenty five years to talk about. Very, very few people, family or friends, have heard this story. I think it was something that I tucked away because I was ashamed of myself and afraid of what might have been. Let me start by saying, I knew better. I was raised with common sense and knew the dangers of the world. So the decisions I made on this particular night weren't something I was proud of, let alone, wanted to share with people... until now. One of the scariest nights of my life, which only seemed fitting to share on Halloween. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the blog and read about the night I was almost abducted.

THINGS TO DO IN FLORIDA {SERIES} – Lion Country Safari

Boat rides, miniature golf and water slides, oh my!  Lion Country Safari is not your typical zoo.  If you love animals, outdoor activities and loads of smiles, there is one Florida attraction that you can’t miss.  I’m continuing our “Things to Do in Florida” series with one of our favorites, Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach, FL.

Drive-Through Safari

You may be looking at these pictures and thinking I have an awesome zoom lens.  What if I told you that I didn’t.  These majestic animals, and many others, were just steps away from our car.  Since 1967, Lion Country Safari is Florida’s only drive-through safari and walk-through amusement park.  The drive-through Safari is miles long and split into seven sections. When you enter the park, you are given a CD to play as you drive through.  It’s like a personal tour.   You can catch glimpses of zebra, rhinoceros, giraffe, ostrich, and even lions!

You are able to drive right through or pull over to observe and take pictures.  Often, the animals will walk right in front of your car.  My girls love being up close and personal with animals that we typically only see behind barriers in a regular zoo.

Rides

Once you’ve completed the drive-through portion, you’ll park your car and begin the walk-through portion.  And if you think you’ve seen anything up until that part, you’d be mistaken.  For us, it’s where the fun really begins.  Enjoy as many rides as you’d like on their carousel or the adorable dragon and elephant ride.  All rides are free with your admission, so no buying tickets or worrying about a wristband.

Photo Opps

Make sure to stop at each of the fun photo opps and snap some keepsake photos of your day.  My girls are always all smiles at these stops, excited to jump in and figure out a fun sister pose.  The face cut out areas are always good for a good laugh.  My girls have got personality for days and I have a hard time keeping the camera still while I laugh at their silly faces.

Giraffe Feeding

While we have fed the giraffes lots of times before, I don’t think I ever realized what beautiful and gentle animals they are until this last visit.  Lion Country Safari offers a stand so you can purchase fresh greens to feed them.  It’s the best few dollars we spent.  This was Falynn’s first time feeding the giraffes and while she was a little hesitant at first, once she let her guard down, she couldn’t wait to feed them more.  The look on her face was priceless.  The giraffes have personalities that are as tall as they are, often sticking out their tongues for my camera.   We even got to meet Cupid. He was given his name because of the heart shape on his neck.

Miniature Golf and Paddle Boats

Enjoy some quality family time on the miniature golf course and paddle boats.  I’m not sure which of the two my girls loved the most, since they asked to do each of them twice.  There is also a water safari boat ride which takes you around and shows you the resident monkeys on their little islands.  It’s a short ride but packed full of great info about each species that lives there.

Water Slides and Water Playground

From the minute we walked in, the girls couldn’t wait to get to the water play area.  They started off at the water slides and I have to brag for a minute… all three of my girls were fearless, conquering the slides like a boss.  Even my 5 year old, Falynn, went down that slide for the first time and came off with two thumbs in the air.  I barely got to ask each of them what they thought before they were running back into the line to do it again.  After three times, they finally agreed to move over to the water playground, where you can find sprinklers, fountains, buckets and loads of water fun.  It’s the perfect place to let them play, especially with the Florida heat.

Fun Slide and Petting Zoo

The one stop I thought we’d never leave… the fun slide.  It’s the one thing from my childhood that I couldn’t get enough of.  Sitting on a burlap sack and flying down.  I lost count after their 6th time. The adults even got in on the fun.  The looks on their faces was something I’ll never forget.  Finally, before we left for the day, we had to check out the petting zoo.  I’ve been to many petting zoos in my day and have never seen such well behaved goats.  Usually they are trying to chew on our clothing but these just stood there and allowed the girls to pet them.  This particular goat even gave me a little smile when I pulled the camera out.

If you ever get the chance to visit, we highly recommend Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach, FL.  It’s a day full of fun that you and your family will never forget!
