Sometimes you wander into a chocolate store and order a milk chocolate bar dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with pretzels and sprinkles cause it looks cute and fun, but then the guy who made it hands it to you and it’s cold, and you realize that it is not “take home” chocolate, it’s actually ice cream and so despite the fact that it’s 10 in the morning you are like “I accept this challenge” and quickly stuff your face with all ice cream before your toddler can see— by following a few steps behind your husband pushing the stroller. 😂 (To clarify, I did let my husband try it but I wasn’t going to give any to her, hello we were in Portland not Disneyland 🤣, she’s only 2) 📍: @moonstruckchoc Portland, Oregon

Happy #NationalBookLoversDay! 🍍 It’s the perfect day to talk about my Auntie Jan- author of the book “Leading with Aloha: from the Pineapple Fields to the Principal’s Office.” My Auntie Jan is my mom’s older sister, and one of my biggest cheerleaders. Whenever I doubt my parenting skills, always reminds me that whatever I’m doing is working just fine— I don’t have to feel guilty for keeping her out of “school” until she’s three. (#momguilt is never-ending😑). And I value her opinion because she’s been an educator for 45 years, starting with 15 years teaching underprivileged preschool-aged kids at Head Start. I’m so lucky to have her support, and we’re all fortunate that she wrote down her experiences in a memoir. 😄 Thanks, Auntie Jan!
Soaking up the end of summer... 💕
