Brought to you by Interac Association and TheCo   I’m a big fan of the little helpers. The ones that make your life easier in the way of convenience and family function; hands full, children running, tea in hand, juggling everything all at once. When I’m alone, I’m pulling a carry on, in one hand, passport in the other and toting a backpack. It’s a struggle to organize when you’re constantly moving from one errand to the next, from one city to the next. Constantly balancing a million things at the same time.    I used to resist what I didn’t know, staying in […] Continue reading →

I had it all planned for months. Hotel was booked, days were taken off, subs were found for classes. Everything was in place. And then the email came in… A newly debuted yoga festival claimed bankruptcy just days before it started. I was planning on taking my three kids for a bonding weekend of yoga, music and the arts. We did the same last year in Tremblant for Wanderlust and it was magical. I’m not one for babying my children and try to immerse them in as many experiences, cultures, and ideas as possible. It’s the way we roll. Yoga […] Continue reading →

Quantum of the Seas Robot Bar

Note: Travel and accommodations were provided by Royal Caribbean. All words and photos are mine. Video is courtesy of Royal Caribbean. I have to admit, the thing I got most excited about when boarding Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas for the first time was the promise of tech. We were able to sign up for mini-tours and this cruise was so chock full on innovations that a newbie cruiser like myself was over the moon. We got to visit the bridge and hear about safety from the captain himself. We went below deck to see how the ship recycles […] Continue reading →

Disclosure: This post has been compensated by Traveling Mom and MasterCard Every time I bring up the subject of traveling with kids, I’m met with “Oh my goodness, how do you do it?!” Yes, traveling with kids comes with its set of challenges, but it can be dare I say it…easy if you plan accordingly and travel between certain times of day. Don’t “wait until they’re old enough” because there is no right or wrong age. We travel for ourselves and for our children. Whether or not my 12 month old son at the time will remember his trip to […] Continue reading →
