Review: Bonefish Grill


My boys don’t really complain that most of the blogger events I’ve gone to the last year have been more for their sister than for them, but they’ve definitely noticed.  At 14 and 11, they’re not really interested in things like Disney on Ice anymore, but they are definitely interested in food.

Review: Melisa Pasero Photography

Screen Shot 2017-10-30 at 11.11.32 AM

I love family pictures.  I actually hate getting my picture taken (shocker: I still look like me), but after getting my cancer diagnosis I realized how precious pictures with my kids are.  I’m going to stop explaining there so no one starts crying (like me).
