WooHoo! It’s that time of year again. Our mailboxes are bursting with back to school info and Target looks like a hurricane came through. Kids are picking out their first day of school outfits and complaining that we won’t buy them the 2,064 count box of Crayons (to be fair, I did some similar complaining […]

My son is five and has a muscle disorder, which has caused significant delays in his muscle development and overall strength. When looking for equipment like car seats, there is always the concern that even if a seat is age-appropriate for him, it may not give him enough support.
I’ve never been the most zen person. If there is a Wikipedia page that’s dedicated to Type A Nut Job, I’m pretty sure you’ll see my mug next to it. I have a particular way that I do things and I’m always planning for the next task. I wake up with a schedule running through […]
Sweat grosses me out and I love my comfort zone (it’s my favorite place to be). These days, however, I wake up excited to hit the gym and I’m really proud of myself for all the hard work I’ve done.
You know that saying “it takes a village”? Well these days, it seems like our Mom Tribes have gotten pretty sparse. With people living farther away from their families and everyone having insanely busy schedules, it can be difficult to find the support that we all need sometimes. Plus if you’re anything like me, you’re […]
The holidays are upon us and for most families, it’s the happiest time of the year. Kids can be cajoled into doing almost anything with just a reminder of Santa’s imminent arrival. Yes, it gets busy with lengthy gift lists and special events, but there’s an underlying level of giddiness in the air. This has […]
In this spooky season of trick-or-treating, let’s talk about the ultimate trick-or-treat: Potty Training (insert horror movie scream here). I think potty training is kind of like trick-or-treating for parents. There are special clothes, you have to ask extra politely, and there’s LOTS of candy involved. For some of you, this is a breeze (and […]
Every mom loves to be spoiled, but between the soccer practices, gymnastics lessons, and changing dirty diapers, she probably won’t admit it… or even take time for herself. She’d probably emphasize just how much she loves playing personal chauffeur and wiping baby butts (with a smile on her face), while underneath her smile and enthusiasm, she’s […]
We love dining out as a family, and along with our beautiful beaches and great local attractions, there are some amazing restaurants here! But, if your kids are anything like mine, you may spend $$$ on a kid’s meal they decide not to eat. We have tried all the tricks but my kids, like many, are just […]
Wow. It’s really nice to be here and to have the opportunity to introduce myself to all of you! Usually I skip the small talk and go straight to my deepest thoughts but today I will try to share a bit about me so you know who you’re spending your time with here on the […]
It all started in the spring of 2009 when I moved to Destin, FL in search of an adventure! One summer day, on the Destin harbor, I met the man who I would one day call my husband! Lee is originally from Nashville, TN, but was in town for the summer running a watersports company. The two of us had a storybook summer romance and within […]
When Sara called me about joining the D30AMB team, I was so excited that I scribbled a long list of post ideas- why I love Defuniak, Sensory Processing Disorder, the Instant Pot, 15 ways to fold underwear. What I didn’t consider was writing the ever important introduction. My early attempts at writing about myself were […]
We’re LIVE! 🙌 Our first official post is here–we thought we’d take a moment to explain what we’re all about. So sit back with your coffee (even if you’ve had to reheat it twice, we know that struggle), relax, and read a little bit about this new community resource we’ve been talking up on social media. […]
