    On the Road with Yankee Candle

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LoveAmericanHome #CollectiveBias With the dog, kids, sports, and the deluge of rain and snow (we just had quarter-sized hail a few days ago), the house and car take on that wet, boy-dirt-play smell. Yankee Candle car fresheners are the perfect go-to solution for helping …

    Heroes Abound – Playskool

    We talk about heroes a lot in our house. Heroes are at the center of most of the play and interaction — they also love to see acts of courage by all their favorite superheroes. But, I also look back at my own childhood, and I see the lessons that I’ve learned… Those lessons have helped me to get through even the darkest …

    My Son – Hulk Smash Halloween

    Yep, it  had to be Hulk! It’s nearly Halloween, so we’ve been having a lot of discussions about costumes. As you can probably imagine, the kids change their minds a few times before they land on the ONE — that costume that will be the perfect one for that year. (I should also say that my son was Optimus Prime …

    Wearing my baby… International Babywearing Week

    We often hear (and read) about the moms who wear their babies from birth. It’s a rewarding experience, and there are so many benefits; but up until a few years ago, we didn’t see as many dads who would wear their babies and children. It’s not that it’s never been done, and I think we can all agree that more-and-more …

    KIND Miles Matter – Family Time That Gives Back

    We’re constantly on the go, whether it’s running in the park, barreling down the slide, taking a hike in the Sandia Mountains, splashing in the pool, or hunting dinosaurs (down by the Rio Grande). That time is important to me, not just because I can see my son seems to be inching taller as we speak. Time is precious, and …

    First Car Moment

    It’s one of those moments that most of us won’t ever forget: the #firstcarmoment. I worked so hard to earn enough money to buy my first car. It was a truck (actually),  and it was quite possibly the most beautiful thing I’d ever owned. At least, it sure was shiny and new when I drove it off the lot for …
