Date Nights Are a Must

Date nights are a must. I'm not talking only if you remember it every 7 months. I mean a must, as in making an effort to make time for just the two of you. It's easy early on. The whole relationship is pretty much one big, exciting date. As the years tick on, as work… Continue reading Date Nights Are a Must

Moms, Let’s Talk

Let's talk playdates. Once upon a time, think way back to when your baby was actually a baby...playdates were for us. While our bald, drooling darlings quietly stared at each other and swapped spit soaked toys, we talked. We could talk about anything without fear of them hearing. We had zero interruptions, minus the occasional… Continue reading Moms, Let’s Talk
