Day of the Dead!

No, the Day of the Dead has no relation to our US celebrated holiday, Halloween. Day of the Dead is a holiday that originated in Mexico and is all about honoring the afterlife. It is a day to celebrate friends and family that have passed and to reiterate that death is not something to be afraid of. The day is celebrated by visiting loved ones in the graveyard, setting up memorials to honor them, and parades where people adorn skeleton makeup and costumes. If you are unfamiliar with the holiday we recommend doing a little research or watching the family-friendly movie, Coco to learn more about how this holiday is celebrated.

Whether you are organized, messy, a world traveler or a homebody we all need to regularly check in and see what needs to be reevaluated in their life. Take a look at all aspects of your life. Family, career, health, finances etc. Are all things that should be looked at and reprioritized. It’s ok to not be where you want to be in life but today is all about seeing how you can get back on that path. Make the necessary changes by writing a budget, planning a family vacation or booking a retreat to rejuvenate.

International Moment of Frustration Scream Day!

scream day 50

While we normally don’t recommend screaming in our house and we are all quick to remind our kids to use their indoor voices, this day is an exception. As parents, we are rewarded with the accomplishments and love our children show us. However, on the way to these rewards, there is frequently crying, yelling, and pulling our hair out. Today, make it a family event as we all know our kids love screaming and we only wish that we could. Go outside and scream for 30 seconds, we promise you will feel better.
