Huzzah! Boston – The Perfect Family Vacation

Boston is not only a family friendly walking city but one filled with delicious restaurants and beautiful parks. It’s the epitome of the perfect family destination. My love of Boston began as a teenager when I visited the city with camp. I remember many of the things we did but my favorite memory was ofContinue reading “Huzzah!

Edaville Family Theme Park, Home of Thomas Land!

If you have a “Thomas the Tank Engine” fiend in your house (like I do – a deux), you must go – right now – to the Edaville Family Theme Park in Carver, MA. My two boys can sit and play with trains for hours. I see it as not only a bonding activity (whenContinue reading “Edaville Family Theme Park, Home of Thomas Land!”

Broadway Shows on Long Island at The Tilles Center!

Let’s cut right to the chase. If Broadway was a twenty minute drive from your house with unlimited free parking and relatively inexpensive tickets, you’d go often, right? Well, guess what? IT IS! Over the past year I have been lucky enough to partner with The Tilles Center for the Performing Arts. We had aContinue reading “Broadway Shows on Long Island at The Tilles Center!”

Sesame Street Live! Make your Magic

Who doesn’t want to see their favorite TV show characters come to life on stage or see their little kid smile & shriek “Cookie!!”? You got me! Because I do!

Our Town: Act 3, Mark Duplass & Perspective on Kids

I was playing at the playground yesterday with my son, who is currently two years and nine months old. I was playing at a playground where I used to take my middle son, now five.

The 2018-2019 Big Apple Circus!

I’m a huge circus fan and one lucky lady. We’ve been guests of the Big Apple Circus before (in 2014 and 2015) and couldn’t wait to return this year for it’s 41st season!   Once again in Lincoln Center (through January 27th, 2019) we were able to relive the joy of the big top. This time, we brought our two-year-old and experiencing itContinue reading “The 2018-2019 Big Apple Circus!”

This Is 40 (and 7 months…)

I wrote this in April, turned 40 in May, and am publishing it December 31st, 2018… all I can say is this – 40 doesn’t feel any different than 39… minus needing my glasses a bit more… I had hoped to publish this before my birthday on the Huffington Post but they switched their formatContinue reading “This Is 40 (and 7 months…)”

Bury The Hatchet, Brooklyn – Axe Throwing At It’s Best!

There is nothing I like more than getting a group of good friends together and having a fun night out. But what does one do these days? Escape the Room is so 2016. Bowling is so third grade. Movies? You can’t talk to anyone. So? Axe throwing! I’ve been dying to try axe throwing sinceContinue reading “Bury The Hatchet, Brooklyn – Axe Throwing At It’s Best!”

2018 NYBG Holiday Train Show!

The tradition continues! Every year for the last decade I’ve kicked off the holiday season by visiting the New York Botanical Garden’s amazing Holiday Train Show. Even before I had kids, there was something just so intriguing about it, so romantic, so fun. It completely deserves all of the hype. Since having kids – especiallyContinue reading “2018 NYBG Holiday Train Show!”
