What The Super Bowl Ads Are Teaching Us About 2015 And Why Our Kids Need Us to Listen

  Did anyone else notice anything different this year with the Super Bowl ads? One of our favorite American pastimes is always coupled by the best commercials of the year. Some take the heartstring approach while generally our favorites tend to be pure comedic genius.

How A 5 Year Old Inspired So Many & A Thanks To Her Amazing Mom

As we’re in the middle of the giving season – a time of year where we yearn to help others and appreciate the good in people, I want to highlight this story once more.

Holidays That Make Us Smile: 4th of July

The 4th of July, my favorite holiday next to Halloween. Gone are the days of gathering with my friends on our beach cruisers in Newport Beach in the most ridiculous chaos one has ever witnessed. Yep, those days are a faint memory now that holidays are no longer about me but rather for building lasting memories for our kiddos. Our family will be having a huge celebration of sorts this Friday, but not for the 4th. For our beloved relative that passed a month ago. So in the spirit of our family reunion celebrating this magnificent man who served our […]
