Celebrate Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is just a few days away!! And if you think running your own business is hard, try motherhood on for size. There is something to be said about all of the strong and beautiful mothers I know in my life.

There’s no time like the present to celebrate motherhood for all of its ups, downs, sweat, tears, and – it may be easy to forget sometimes – but don’t forget about the laughs and smiles that come with being a Mom!

From now through Mother’s Day, I am offering a special package for you to receive the ultimate pampering treatment! Or, if your loved one is reading this, consider treating Mom to an unforgettable afternoon.

How to: display your photos

If you’re anything like me, you want to capture all of the big moments in your family’s life. Your walls and tables may be adorned with framed photographs, your shelves lined with photo albums, and each photograph holds a memory to be re-lived when you look at them.

If you’re also like me, you like to switch things up every once in awhile.

What motivates and inspires someone to start a movement for change?

I guess it isn’t one thing really. Everyone has different reasons and every movement a different tipping point. But as I stare down my own desire to start a movement toward empowering woman, I am curious about this question.

I’d like to introduce you to a very insightful woman and personal healer, Claire Stillman.

Breakwaters exist to reduce the intensity of waves as well as provide safe harborage. They also tend to be beautiful spots.

We have some breakwaters along Lake Michigan that feature incredible stones stacked in perfect configuration. Between the crashing of waves and the gorgeous surroundings, they are some of my favorite spots on Lake Michigan.

It seems that is exactly what Matthew realized when he decided to propose to Sarah at the end of a breakwater on Lake Michigan just beyond popular Lincoln Memorial Drive along Milwaukee’s lakefront.

March is a special month. Along with it being Women’s History Month, today is International Women’s Day. What does International Women’s Day mean to me? It means that while there is a special day to celebrate women, to me, it should be (and is) International Women’s Day every day. It also means that my mission to empower all women is more important than ever!
