I wanted to start a new series of posts from other awesome Florida moms from around the state. They are the best ones to ask about their hometown…and find the kid and family friendly spots from the locals. I am already busy planning our family trips for the next year and have started messaging moms that I know… I figured I should post those tips and tricks with other parents too!
I have followed Megan on Instagram for a few years @lattesandplaydates, and even though we don’t live in the same town, I love seeing all of the different Florida spots in her stories.Continue reading “This Melbourne Florida Mom”

Birthdays are stressful. I’m absolutely the one that puts all the pressure on myself. I completely know that. I love all of the planning and Pinterest-ing.. but as the day gets closer and the RSVP list gets longer… the fun disappears and I’m a sweaty messy mom who is ready for the day to be over.
I couldn’t do it again this year, and turned over all of the fun and entertainment to We Rock the Spectrum in Port St Lucie. What a complete difference it made.Continue reading “Add this to your weekend plans – We Rock the Spectrum – Port St Lucie”
