What do you get the dad who has everything? I’m never really sure what to buy but I must say it’s a fun trip down the Father’s Day google rabbit hole to discover that special gift for that special dad.

In honor of Father's Day, my son and I are honoring this guy!  Nobody enjoys an adventure more than my husband Derek. This April we scaled a wall… The Great Wall that is and it was a “check that box” moment for the three of us. First stop; Tokyo, Kyoto then we flew to South Korea and paid a visit to the DMZ then off to Beijing China and last stop Hong Kong. What a trip and one of the best experiences we’ve had as a family so far. Guess who plans our educational travel extravaganzas? The husband, the father Derek Norton.

Happy Father's Day husband! It was an exciting adventure once again. Luca, Buster and I are grateful for all you do!

We Love you!

We always know what’s at the top of your check list to bring almost anywhere. A travel backgammon set!

This quote is the greatest gift we can receive from a parent. Our son knows he is loved and supported and that his life and thoughts matter. He knows he can alway come to us and we will be there. From day one Derek has showed up for our son and as a wife and mother…. this is priceless.

Cheers to the wonderful fathers, father figures and male mentors out there, you have touched the lives of people out there, you don’t even know.  Thank you for all that you do, for the hard work you put into the world and your strength. Thank you for our father’s whom we loved and learned from who are no longe with us, they too are remembered.

Have a beautiful day!

Summer is almost here and during these months I enjoy the search for flowy white dresses, white pants, and I’m always on the hunt for a fun beach bag. When I spotted this one I thought; how fun is a beach Birkin! It comes with a shoulder strap too so you’ll be hands free for your Rosé all day!

This year we spent spring break in Asia and almost every fashionista I saw was wearing cool sneakers and a flowy dress. I’ve never seen such fabulous style as I did in Japan and Korea; these women were chic, elegant and edgy. The sneaker brand I saw the most was Golden Goose, Nike Cortez and Adidas, there were some pretty cool “dad shoes” too. I purchased the ones above when we returned, they are the most comfortable sneaker I’ve worn. My friend Doreen and I got the same ones and we’re going back for another pair!
