Why is Making Boca Mom Friends So Dang Hard Sometimes?

Stop me if this sounds familiar. You feel like you have a lot of friends in your life. I mean, your wedding was probably about 150+, right? But after having a baby…you find that most of these friends “don’t get it.”

Don’t get what exactly?

Motherhood. It’s hard! And unless you’ve been there firsthand, it can be REALLY challenging to relate.

So then we decide we need Boca mom friends. But, it’s not always so easy to join this new tribe of women. That’s why I’m talking to Boca Raton therapist, Lori Lundin-Fish, PhD, LMFT of Palm Beach Therapy Center. As mom AND therapist, she gets how challenging this process can be. Let’s discuss!

A Match Made in Boca: Koki Personal Chef Service + Party Host Helpers

There are few things that I love more than entertaining friends and family. We were always the apartment in NYC that our friends would flock to. And now, our house in Boca is (IMO) the destination for girly gatherings, family celebrations and play dates for my daughter and her buddies. What I don’t love about entertaining, however, is 1) cooking and 2) cleaning up. But who does? Luckily we live in a time where there’s pretty much an online solution for everything. Need a personal chef? No problem! Someone to clean up? I have your people.

For my most recent “moms dinner”, I really wanted to enjoy myself. So, I brought in the Boca big guns: Koki In-home Personal Chef Service and Party Host Helpers Boca Raton! Continue reading A Match Made in Boca: Koki Personal Chef Service + Party Host Helpers

Boca Raton Museum of Art Outdoor Holiday Photo Shoot

One of my absolute favorite parts of the holiday season is getting photo cards in the mail from family and friends! Heck- I even love ’em from business associates! We always cover an entire door in our family room with the cards we receive and leave them up through January…maybe even February. Last year, we ordered vintage-themed holiday postcards from minted. This year, I was inspired by that super cool red sculpture at the Boca Raton Museum of Art–they renovated that whole outside section along Federal Highway earlier this year. So, I went ahead and scheduled an October shoot with Sweet Memories Photography. Are you ready to see the photos from our 2019 Boca Raton Museum of Art holiday photo shoot?

Living a Happy Offline Boca Family Life in an Online World

This Living an Offline Boca Family Life in an Online World post was sponsored by Google in partnership with the Forward Influence Network. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


When it comes to technology, I consider my family and I to be relatively early adopters. We have a deep appreciation for how tech makes our lives as adults and parents easier. And, we utilize it throughout our Boca Raton home. However, now that I have a child (#dailybocaavery is the ripe old age of 6), I know I personally struggle with maintaining a visible balance. My daughter sees EVERYTHING. And as a blogger and busy mom, I spend a lot of my time…well…online and on a screen. It’s a challenge trying to live a fulfilling offline Boca family life when our world is so heavily digital.
