I have never been to an all inclusive resort before and now I’m wondering why it took me so long. I am honestly the most relaxed I have ever been coming off of a vacation. Choose an all-inclusive resort and let your busy, tired brain rest!
We have been a family of four for almost 3 years now and we’ve NEVER taken a vacation together. Don’t get me wrong, we’ve gone on plenty of trips and adventures but have always vacationed with extended family or...
Traveling with kids is equal parts exhilarating, exhausting, and frustrating. I will not lie to you, traveling with kids is not at all easy, but our family motto is parenting is hard wherever you are, so why not do...
I recently had the pleasure of flying across the country with my 4.5-year-old son, M.J., and my 14-month-old daughter, C. I wasn't at all worried about the big kid. The 4-year-old was happy as a clam to have extra iPad...
I’ve always had a soft spot for NYC. My father was born in Brooklyn, raised on Staten Island, and much of my extended family is also from there. My husband, although a native Vermonter, also has family living in the...
I read all the Harry Potter books in my 20s before having children. Much to my delight, Universal Studios opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter on June 18, 2010, less than three months after my daughter’s birth. Much to...

 I don’t know about you but I usually start daydreaming about the beach and the sun right after the first of the year. The holidays are over and we are in the thick of winter here in Vermont. I don’t like...
Who said camping with kids is fun? Honestly, I have never been a huge fan of camping but when it was just me and my husband, I could put on a brave face and actually have fun. But once you...
Some days it’s too hot to eat in the summer. Cooking is torturous. Sometimes it seems that the food you eat immediately curdles in your belly because it is so steamy in the world. Our menu at home is pretty...
Back in early January my husband and I celebrated 6 years of marriage. We always try to plan a little getaway (if finances allow), and I have come to appreciate this "break" even more so now that we have...
