Is It a Bird? Is It a Plane? No! It’s the Superman Hall of Heroes! #EverydayHeroes

Growing up I saw very few movies. My town had a one-screen movie theater that was used only 50% of the time. The other 50% it was a theater for traveling or local theater productions. When a movie played, it played for weeks. I had to go to the next city to see a...

Give a Book, Get a Book with Disney #DisneySMMoms

I’ve been home from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration for about three weeks. The bags are mostly unpacked. The laundry is mostly done. The kids’ missed schoolwork is completed.

Giving Back: Starting a Family Tradition (Part 1)

As my children get older, I want to teach them to give back. I want giving back to be a part of their lives. When they were little, we would talk about people who had very little. I would show them that I was donating to the needy by placing an envelop of money...

Growing up in England v. Growing up in America #EnglishMemories

I grew up in England and America, and even Italy for a short while. When I’m talking to someone about my childhood, I often base my answers on what I did in one country.¬†You would think that my childhood stories would be the same since I grew up mostly in two English-speaking countries, but...

Eye Surgery…No Regrets

I look before I leap. I examine. I research. I fret. I worry. I don’t leave any stone unturned. I ask for advice. I seek out those who are in the know. In short, I’m the type of person who doesn’t do ANYTHING spontaneously. My laser eye surgery was no different. I started wearing...
