Our girls were really excited when they heard we were headed for the Fifth Third Bank Winter Wonderfest. I was a bit wary. I knew friends who took their younger kids down to Navy Pier, but I wasn’t sure our teens would have as much fun. They are in that “too cool” to be with […]

National social media holidays are so fun because they allow you to unabashedly celebrate your favorite things to do! For instance, today, June 2nd, is “National Bubba Day“.
