I love to travel and being a filmmaker has given me all kinds or reasons to go many places. But as my family grew I got tired of long hours in airplane seats and nights alone in hotel rooms. Then, a few years ago I had a flash of inspiration (some might say insanity, but I’m sticking with inspiration). I decided to parlay a project in Germany into a summer adventure for my family of six.
It turned out to be a memorable vacation and taught me a very important lesson: Big…Continue

It’s that time of year again. Stores are advertising incredible sales on school supplies, the temperatures outside are starting to cool down, and school bus stops are affecting your morning commute. As the summer winds down, school once again becomes the priority for scheduling your children’s time throughout the week. Soccer practice, karate and playing on the XBOX has to be carefully fit into the same hectic evenings where homework and after-school programs compete for you and…Continue

The Indianapolis Children's Museum is the world's largest museum of its kind and a definite must-see attraction if you have kids. My kids loved everything about it and would like to go back as often as possible. Between the excellent dinosaur exhibit, train displays, indoor carousel and playhouse, National Geographic Treasures of the Earth exhibits, dedicated toddler/preschooler area, and plenty of hands-on science stations, the kids will enjoy hours of educational entertainment. There are…Continue

Chicago is such an awesome city to visit: full of history, world-class museums, shopping, fun dining options and kid-friendly attractions. If you are thinking ahead to spring break or summer vacation, Chicago is definitely a place to keep on the list of musts for family trips. I have visited Chicago at least a dozen times over the years. Some trips were for business, some for a girls' only weekend, a few have been a one-day up and back Chicago day trip and, of course, the family…Continue

Last year when we decided I would leave work and stay home to care for my mom and kids, one thing became immediately apparent…
Order was needed.
Some kind of system to find stuff and put stuff where stuff belonged after stuff was being looked for and stuff was not found. Another thing also became achingly apparent… we had a lot of… shi.. I mean, stuff!
There were homework supplies on the kitchen table. Fast food (yeah, yeah, we go there!) toys in the…Continue

Argh. Sooo challenging...and so permanent. It needs to be just right.
Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?
You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field? Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…Continue
