How Your Family Can Celebrate Energy Action Month with FPL

Before I get into this post, can we give a round of applause to our friends at Florida Power & Light Company (FPL)? This content may be sponsored, but they did a fantastic job getting power back in Boca Raton post-Hurricane Irma. I’ve never appreciated my A/C and pool pump more! Having electricity is honestly a cause for celebration. And after everything local families have been through this summer, I’m proposing a virtual toast. Join me in celebrating Energy Action Month with FPL!

Cruising on the Disney Wonder with a Preschooler: Hit or Miss?
