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!”

Family Fun! Performances at The Tilles Center!

As Long Islanders, we’re so lucky to have a great performing arts venue like the Tilles Center in our backyard. Not only is the Tilles Center the only theater on Long Island that hosts nationally touring Broadway productions – like Rocktopia, Spamalot, Finding Neverland, and more – but they also host a wide variety of world-renownedContinue reading “Family Fun!

Play Monster’s Super Spinner Swing & Super Duper Spinner Swing!

Our backyard is an extension of our home. It’s a place where I let my kids play, run free and go wild. When we moved to the suburbs from the city I was the most excited for my backyard. Pretty much four years later – I still get a thrill knowing it’s all mine (andContinue reading “Play Monster’s Super Spinner Swing & Super Duper Spinner Swing!”

I’m lucky now that my children comply and join me so I don’t have to go alone (ha!).  I challenge anyone to get the same thrill from modern technology as you do from blowing a giant bubble in a science center bubble maker.Continue reading “Exploring the Liberty Science Center!”

Enter Floatopia – a newly opened Float Spa & Salt Cave located in Dix Hills, NY.
