Boca Center: The Real Stories Behind the Stores

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.

And, there’s more to come!

From impeccably-styled seasonal photo opps to personalized pumpkins and virtual visits with Santa, Boca Center is still THE one-stop shopping, dining and personal care destination for local families.

Holiday Photo Shoot at The Wick Theatre in Boca Raton

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?

Top Storm Supplies at Publix for Your Boca Raton Family

This post is sponsored by the Storm Basics promotion at Publix. The opinions and text are all mine.


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.
