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!

Entering motherhood later in life was a blessing for me, I know for a fact the timing was meant to be. Finding love and happiness and entering motherhood saved my soul! Our boy Luca, which means bringer of light was just that, a bright light and a heart opening journey. I have so many wonderful memories from the day he was born, I feel so blessed every single day and also grateful to still have my mom. It’s a wonderful gift being a mother, because you have the chance to revisit all these wonderful experiences and see the world through the eyes of a child… I guess you could say, I now see things in a whole new light.

Here’s a few gift ideas for the mom’s in your life and may your day be filled with love & light.
