When you are able to love on them, wear them, enjoy their baby rolls, make them giggle and smile, and then give them back to their mothers. 😉 All of it is the absolute best. The day I became an aunt, I was so excited. Oliver, my nephew, is the first baby in the family so we all have been enjoying our time with him. I believe every mother deserves a little break here and there so I have tried to help out and…

As a mom, I vividly remember the first trip we embarked on as a family. It was a disaster that screenwriters in Hollywood would pay me to retell, and four years later I am finally able to have a sense of humor about the whole trip. Family vacations are kind of my specialty, and in my mind, one of the best places in the “world” to create memories with your family is Walt Disney World. Disney makes it so easy for families to be comfortable at their resorts and it truly is the happiest place on earth. While planning my…

Babymoon: San Antonio Style

Friday, April 29, 2016 By Jessica Tomes

According to Urban Dictionary, a “babymoon” is defined as the period before the baby is born. “Like a honeymoon, because after the baby is born the mother will not get to do the same things due to the responsibility of the baby.” True life: throw in a preschooler and a toddler and you’ve got yourself a party (a familymoon?) of #epicproportions. Or something along those lines. And you couldn’t pay me enough — we’re talking big time money here — to do it again. At least not the way we did. And not for a long while, anyway. Let me…

Aspen during the winter is seriously stunning. My family skied annually growing up and I can honestly say it’s in my top three favorite ski destinations of all time.

Babymoon: New Orleans

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 By Lanie Towsley

One of the perks of being a work-turned stay-at-home-mom is that I can travel again with my husband when he has work trips! I used to accompany him a lot before we had Fischer, but over the past two years, I haven’t been able to as much because I needed to reserve personal days for those times when little man would get sick. (Which was, sadly, quite frequent seeing as how he spent a lot of his time at daycare sharing “chew toys”. ew.) Husband’s company hosts bi-annual company meetings that consist of both professional and company-culture development. Besides it…
