Write because writing feels so much better than not writing. Write because it is the act of writing that makes you a writer. Write because […]

Summer tips with kids #SummerConBritax

So far our summer has been fantastic. We took our first camping trip as a family to Lake Tahoe and I’d say it was a huge success. We’re so lucky because the drive from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe is only around 4 hours not counting stops of course. Now, that is by no means […]
