Teachers Really Do Change Lives {Sponsored Post}

classroom5a

    Image Source When I was in the 3rd grade, my mother told me that she would be divorcing my father. I didn't clearly understand what that meant at the time, but I felt like it was the end of the world. There were many days that I cried myself to sleep, worrying about the impact that this had on my life. Even though I lived with my grandparents, if I had to choose one of my parents, I would definitely choose my father (I never really understood why).  I was always a daddy's girl and only … [Read more...]

Getting Back to Basics: Why I’m Keeping Summer Fun Simple & Affordable

FUN AT THE PARK

When I was a child, I had so much fun just being outside.

Summers were never about the most complicated and expensive thing we could do. It was about spending time together. Now that I have my own child, I feel that I have to entertain him in so many different … [Read more...]
