To my fellow makers, mothers and Mesdames,

This year, you had an idea and made it come to life. You turned your thoughts into reality. You strengthened hearts. You challenged minds. You lightened loads and encouraged spirits. You cared. You loved. You gave. The world would be a very different place without you and I appreciate you.

May your Christmas be filled with love, joy and laughter. Merry Christmas!

Yesterday was election day. Whether you submitted a ballot or not, you still have a chance to vote. How? Every day is voting day. Every day we cast our votes for what we deem important. How we spend our money, where we go, what we watch and who we spend time with are all votes.

How will you vote today?

Being spontaneous does not come naturally to me, especially since I have two young kids. I like having a plan. I like being prepared. I like following a schedule. So, when I said, “Yes!” to a spontaneous trip to the beach, everyone was surprised (especially me).

Live in the moment. Let go. Get dirty. Get knocked over by waves. It’ll be okay. You know how I know? Because that day I laughed harder than I had in months.

Planning and preparation are good, but so is spontaneity.  The reality is that I need a little bit of both in my life. I can’t plan everything and I can’t be prepared for everything. Even if I could, I don’t know if I’d want to because some of the most enjoyable and memorable moments are unplanned.

Be Spontaneous. It's good for the soul.

September is here and that means summer is coming to an end. When I think back on my summer of learning, exploration and growth, my favorite adventure by far was berry picking with my family. (Blueberries and strawberries are my favorite fruits.) I loved seeing how they grow and tasting them fresh off the bush/vine.

Both blueberries and strawberries grow low to the ground so KidFish was able to pick them herself! Bonus points for activities that KidFish can do without much help.
