    11 Reasons Why A Toddler Has A Better Outlook On Life

    After 63 wonderful hours with Jeff, it is back to reality. This weekend has been a great reminder of how beautiful life can be if you keep it simple. A successful day the beach on Sunday followed by a morning full of errands and an evening at a local park. These are the moments that melt my heart.

After moving to South Florida, this coming holiday won’t be the same as others. For starters, I will be home with my little family and won’t be surrounded by those we left back in North Jersey. Although our home has winter décor, stepping outside won’t be the same. Without snow, or much of a drop in temperature, it feels as though we are being cheated of a beautiful season.
