This year, Milk-Bone is celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary with Canine Assistants, a non-profit organization that trains and provides service dogs to children and adults with physical disabilities and special needs. This is the kind of training we were learning about this week.
Staying connected with family and friends is important on so many levels. Spending time with friends and family can help to reduce stress, build stronger relationships, and create new memories. It’s in your best interest to make time for your friends and family!
I want to create a gathering of women in my life who are amazing people with a lot on their plates and remind them how amazing they are and the great things they are doing in the world. I want to empower them to recognize the strengths they have and realize they are using them daily to enhance the lives of everyone around them, especially me.
When my kids were younger I found myself staying in more managing bedtimes, mealtimes, and naptimes. I swore when my kids were older there would be more time for me to spend with my friends. I would make it happen.
Then my kids got older and those bedtimes and naptimes were replaced with playdates, sports, and other activities. Assessing the future was not my strong suit at the time.

For this reason I needed to make sure the room was inviting and comfortable while still inspiring awesomeness in everything we do. To accomplish this task I used the five senses and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Here are some ideas showing you what we did, and suggestions to create the perfect atmosphere in any room you want.

This past month I’ve been thinking about all the achievements my kids have had in their short lives. Especially those achievements they have a hard time recognizing as an accomplishment. Sometimes it’s hard to see that even a little progress is an achievement even if you haven’t reached the final goal. It’s also not always…
