Alaska in the Raw!

August 16, 2016   

Hello Everyone! Lisa here!

I just returned from the most glorious trip ever. Yep, Alaska has been on my bucket list for a very long time and my sweet mom arranged a cruise for my sisters and their hubbies and luckily she came along too! Now one thing I’ve gotta note–my mom is almost 87 but she acts like she’s 20 years younger. So, she did a great job keeping up with the group! In fact, I think she’s the biggest late-night partier of us all. She could have played games all night!

So, this post isn’t really about my cruise and the places we visited, although I’ll definitely mention a bit about those two things. This post is about which camera is right for you, especially on a trip.

I am an iPhone lover but have to admit, my friends with Androids often get even better shots than I get. But for the sake of this article and because this is the type of phone I use, I’ll show you a few iPhone shots. I love the convenience of having a great camera with me at all times.

School Rules!

August 11, 2016   

As a child, this time of year was not my favorite. Summer activities were winding down as we prepared to return to school. Now, there’s something so fun about seeing all the school supplies and I love taking the kids clothes shopping. So what are you doing to get ready for the school season? Are your kids just starting school or is this their last year or somewhere in between? We have a few ideas to make starting school fun for your little ones, but there are tons of templates for kids of all ages when it comes to school.
