BREAKING NEWS: My MOMbassador partnership with Boca Center is officially continuing in 2021! I’m envisioning another big year for Modern Boca Mom and am honestly so, so grateful for the opportunities coming my way. Even despite a global pandemic, we still managed to accomplish so many fun things with Boca Center retailers and restaurants in the past 365 days.
One of my most favorite parts of the holiday season is getting photo cards in the mail from my family and friends! Heck- I even love ’em from business associates! Last year, we ordered bold and artsy holiday postcards from minted.This year, while I still plan to order postcards, I wasn’t quite sure how we wanted to express our overall feelings about 2020. You may be in the same boat. This year stunk.
Since my family and I spent most of 2020 in pajamas and athleisure outfits, I brainstormed fun ways to visually turn the worst year ever right on its head. So, I convinced my family to go GLAM! And the best reason to dress up in town? The theater. I reached out to my friends at The Wick and they were so gracious to accommodate our annual family shoot with Sweet Memories Photography.
Not to mention…what type of local business could really use the most publicity right now? Live theater. Yes, live theater. Are you ready to see the photos from our 2020 holiday photoshoot at The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton?

Let’s face it, moms. When you have children, preparing for a hurricane is a totally different animal. Before kids, I basically stocked up on iced coffee, beer and snacks for a storm. Now? The stakes are much higher. I’m literally meal planning for the native Floridian’s worst-case scenario/nightmare of being without power for multiple weeks. The increase in disaster prep has been a big change, especially when the first big hurricane with our daughter happened. But, the one thing that hasn’t changed? Getting our storm supplies at Publix. They are truly a one-stop-shop destination for everything you need to prepare for the season.
I know this may come as a shock, but #modernbocadad and I have (kind of) let romance go by the wayside during this pandemic. Sure we still have our Netflix/Hulu/Prime Video nights and manage to get some alone time in after our daughter goes to bed. But a proper date night? I *think* our last one was back in February. And I know we’re not the only local parents who haven’t exactly prioritized romance lately. Luckily, South Florida Melting Pot locations have a solution!
