Giving the Gift of Gratitude and Gratefulness

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I am in love with everything this time of year: the decorations, the smells this time of year, the predictable, yet addicting Hallmark movies, tamale making and of course spending time with friends and family.                          Who doesn’t love the hearing Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You," which hit number 1, playing as you sip hot cocoa while you wrap gifts for your loved ones. It is all too easy to get wrapped up in the excitement...

Visit Palm Spring: A Review of the Volkswagen Tiguan

Newly designed for 2019, the Volkswagen Tiguan is an ideal compact SUV with more room than ever. It has a simple but stylistic design is appealing. Test driving the 2019 Tiguan was a joy as well. The seats in the front and 2nd row are very comfortable. The ride was smooth. As a bonus unlike other crossovers in its class the Tiguan offers optional third row seating. Although it compromises some cargo space I could see it coming in handy when driving all my son's baseball teammates around. Inside I like that the infotainment system is a touchscreen.

A fun and fresh story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.  “Smallfoot” stars Channing Tatum (“The Book of Life,” the “Jump Street”...

IMAX laser at the California Science Center

As a mom of 4 it's difficult to be everywhere all the time. When possible, I love to break up the kids and give them each 1:1 mommy time. It's important to my husband and I to try and provide quality time with them.   This Sunday was one of those wonderful days where my girls were able to hang with mom and dad, without their bros.  We were excited to attend the opening of the IMAX laser theater at the California Science Center. The girls were able to do arts and crafts in preparation for the upcoming movies. Ava...
