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! .

What to do for Migraine Relief

If You Love It, Share It!

There was a point in my life where I had no idea what a migraine was or how it felt to have one. I had family members and friends who suffered from them and told me how horrible they were, but I couldn’t sympathize with them because I had no idea what they were feeling.  And then I got pregnant.  It’s like I became a Mom and the ailment fairy dropped a bunch of beautifully wrapped packages at my door, one containing all the migraines I could handle.

What is a Migraine?

According to the Migraine Research Foundation, just about everyone has headaches. But contrary to popular belief, migraine is not just a bad headache. It’s an extremely incapacitating collection of neurological symptoms that usually includes a severe throbbing recurring pain on one side of the head. However, in 1/3 of migraine attacks, both sides are affected. Attacks last between 4 and 72 hours and are often accompanied by one or more of the following disabling symptoms: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face. Of course, everyone is different, and symptoms vary by person and sometimes by attack.

I remember that first migraine like it was yesterday. I was sure it was just a headache but it got worse as the time went on. Noise bothered me. Light was unbearable.  I just wanted to hide under my covers and fall asleep. It was like nothing I had ever felt. It took my entire day away from me.  I couldn’t work. I couldn’t eat.  It completely debilitated me.

How Do You Get Relief?

Someone on social media suggested freezing the migraine, so I bought an ice pack and placed it directly on my forehead. I even tried to eat a popsicle really quickly to give myself brain freeze.  I had my kids or my husband rub my temples.  While both offered a small amount of comfort, neither provided long term relief. Aspirin didn’t help. The other over the counter meds had too much caffeine, so I couldn’t sleep.  I drank more water. I tried peppermint essential oils.  I even got blood tests to make sure it wasn’t something more serious. You name it, I tried it.  And still, at the worst times, a migraine would show up and ruin my entire day.

I considered asking my doctor for some sort of medication, but knowing that there is a risk that they can lead to substance abuse and dependence, I was determined to find another option.

Internet searches brought up a lot of the same suggestions including:

  • Rest
  • Massage
  • Heating Pad
  • Meditation
  • Caffeine Free Diet (this one particularly made me laugh since so many migraine medications contain caffeine)

Introducing MigShield

In May, I got an email asking if I’d like to try a new natural solution to migraines from Quantum Health. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0773PZQ4G’ text=’MigShield’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’us-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ad693cea-9b89-11e8-966c-edd2bd809cb5′] is formulated with CoQ10, Magnesium and Riboflavin, all critical ingredients proven to relieve migraines. I agreed to try them for 2 months because, I had pretty much exhausted all other options at that point.

So here we are, 2 months later.  I’ve only had one migraine since I started taking them which is a definite improvement over the previous 2 months.  Since they are all natural, I don’t have to worry about what I’m putting into my body and more importantly, there is no addiction risk involved. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0773PZQ4G’ text=’MigShield’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’us-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ad693cea-9b89-11e8-966c-edd2bd809cb5′] has fit in perfectly with my daily supplements and gives me hope.

Do you suffer from migraines? Comment below and let me know what you do for relief.

    Nice post… I have been suffering from migraine for a long time.. Recently found that it was due a symptom of me being histamine intolerant. For me keeping away from high histamine foods, stale foods, anything high in citrus has helped me.. Also, taking MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) daily has helped a lot.
    I found this blog very informative : https://mummyandchild.com/intolerances/histamine/

    I suffer from horrible migraines. Over the years I have tried everything that supposedly helps migraines. The only thing the remotely helps is a hit rice sock, Tylenol for pain and benadryl to help me sleep it off, and a dark and quiet room. I will look into the MigShield for relief. Sounds like it works!
