Standing up for girls and women everywhere as part of the ONE Girls & Women ‪#‎PovertyisSexist‬ campaign but also highlighting the incredible work that these four women in #Haiti  are doing to help lift others out of poverty as they assist women and girls in reaching their full potential. I'm proud to know these women because their work is changing the lives of so many women, men, and families. So won't you please join me by lending your voice to give women & girls the chance to reach their full potential? #Bloggers4Haiti

Taking to Emily to Haiti was so much more than a trip. Being there as more than tourists was an immersive learning experience that was my way of investing in her as a global citizen. #Bloggers4Haiti   #travel   #education   #kids  
I've spent a lot of time reflecting about our trip to Haiti since while editing countless photos documenting our journey. As a veteran traveler to Haiti, this trip was very different for me because I brought my 11 year old daughter, Emily, along. To have the chance to see the country through ...

Thinking about getting a DIY home security system? I've tested many and Arlo is a favorite because this system from +NETGEAR offers wireless operation, easy setup, and the option for a free service plan. http://ow.ly/JvXR2 #homesecurity   #connectedhome   #DIY   #homesecuritysystem  
There are a lot of webcams on the market and most of them are now sold as part of home security packages. The trouble is that even if the camera connects to your WiFi, many times you want to put it where there isn't good access to a power plug. Arlo from Netgear solves the power plug problem ...

Today I reflect on my childhood and the traditions associated with Chinese New Year. I wonder if I'm doing a good enough job imparting important cultural customs to my own kids. Whether you're celebrating or wanting to know more, here are ways you can teach your kids about Year of the Sheep. Or Ram. Or Goat. Here's to a happy and prosperous year for all!

This morning as I stood at the sink, preparing our special meal to celebrate the start of Chinese New Year, my mind wandered back to my childhood and the traditions I grew up with. Today as we usher out Year of the Horse and welcome Year of the Sheep, Ram, or Goat, I wondered how good of a job ...

Middle school presents enough challenges to cause any student a bit of anxiety but we’re loving Public School Superhero that’s a perfect read for any tween. #publicschoolsuperhero   #jamespatterson   #books   #tweens    #middleschool   #giveaway  
With a 5th grader in the house, middle school is on our minds. It's comforting to know that Emily will be going to our neighborhood middle school with many of the same friends she's attended school with for the past six years but there are certainly going to be new challenges for her ahead such ...
