  Ahhhhhhhhh….Summer.   The most amazing time of the year, in my humble opinion anyway.   This is the time where we can let go of super tight schedules and crazy busy days.  We can possibly sleep a little bit longer, eat lighter foods, wear less bulky jackets.  We can watch rain storms and we

    Is your kid a crazy kid?  Do they have their own fashion sense?  Their own quirks and funny sayings? Encouraging our kids to be individuals can be a scary thing!  I follow many parents who encourage their kids to be exactly who they are.  One of my favorites is Erin Vest.  Better known

  The world of the internet is an amazing doorway to information at your fingertips 24/7 365 days a year.  You can find a recipe for Red Velvet cupcakes at 4 am.  You can find a Harvard study on the impact of Social Media on bullying at 3 pm on a Monday afternoon.  We have
