The holidays are upon us for 2018 and that means it’s time for reflection and time to give thanks. Being thankful for what you have says a lot about who you are.
Ethan is a 6 year old boy who plays with dolls – and he’s awesome. Why is there such a stigma around boys playing with dolls? I think behaviors like this are teaching our boys to be bad fathers.
Follow the Journey of 200lbs of School Supplies to the Island of St. Maarten aboard Oasis of the Seas
In September of 2017, powerful hurricane Irma struck both the island of St. Maarten / Sint Maarten as well as our home in Florida.

On a whim, I saw Califia Mocha in the cooler when I was going back to stock up on more cold brew. I wanted to try something new, and I ended up being surprised by this coffee. Here’s my honest Califia Mocha Cold Brew Coffee review.
Here’s our full and honest review of Photolemur 3. Photolemur 3 is drag-and-drop simple to use and it results in great looking edited photos with next to no effort.

What’s the key to marriage success? I think this one thing my wife and I do has helped our marriage thrive.
My first marriage resulted in a divorce and a less-than-amicable split, followed by years of strife and disagreement. Statistically, second marriages fail more frequently than first. I am no relationship expert and there’s no snake oil cure in this post. But I am pretty sure this one thing my wife and I do has helped our marriage thrive.
