Promoting Kids' Brain Health with Vitamin Friends Just Focus Vegan Gummies

As an 80s baby I still remember the chalky taste of my morning vitamin each school day - they somehow seemed like a treat to me. Fast forward to now as a mom of a 4 and 8 year old and there are so many more options available. My kids have become self-appointed vitamin connoisseurs!

To make it extra special, I've partnered with Wayfair to reflect on 5 quick ways I'm simplifying this holiday season.

I have a confession: if you send me a holiday card I save it forever! Moving 5 times across 4 states since we became a family has helped us make many friends over the years, so when the holiday season comes it's such a joy to see the updates come through the mail. Social media is great and all, but there's something to be said for getting a piece of mail and slowing down to relish in how old friends are doing, displaying the cards prominently as they arrive. 

This season will be our 4th partnering with Minted, and I love how stress-free they make it. I have something extra special planned for this year's card, and today I'm sharing my top 3 tips that have worked for me over the years:

My Top 5 Quotes from Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama




I don't know how I had the foresight, but before I knew we'd have 11 straight days of guests starting a week before Thanksgiving I booked a single ticket for myself to see Michelle Obama on the Boston stop of her book tour. A few month's prior I had set an alarm the day the tickets went on sale to try to snag two tickets to no avail; I could only purchase one. They sold out so fast!

Somehow it all worked out because after a long week of hosting I slipped out of the house to catch a train downtown for two hours with Michelle Obama. It was everything I needed.
