For When The Weather Outside Is Frightful…

When the weather outside takes a turn for the worst, it can be easy to simply turn to gadgets in order to get you through the day. We have turned into a generation that is completely consumed by new technology; we are always wanting for new bits and bobs to keep us occupied, without having to move from where we are sat/stood/laid down.

Making Divorce Easier For Your Kids

I was recently at a local networking event and had a very interesting conversation with a divorce coach. If you’re anything like me, you may have a raised an eyebrow (my husband raised two when I came home and mentioned it) but stick with me for a moment.

No one plans for divorce. It’s not something that you think about while planning your nuptials and happily ever after. The awesome Divapreneur that I met understands and respects that,

So I Failed My Goal This Year …

I failed, horribly, at the 52 Week Family Challenge this year.
