It’s a new year, so only natural I guess that women in droves are setting BHAGS. You’ve heard the term, right: big, hairy, audacious GOALS? Huge goals have always seemed intimidating to me, honestly. I’m an ambitious person by nature, but have found way more success by starting small and growing my goals step by step. And they usually run the gamut each year– family, work and personal growth. Let’s just call them my Boca mom goals!
Once I started writing them all down for this year, I realized so many are easily applicable to my fellow local mommies. If you’ve struggled to find your “word” for 2019 or decide what to strive for during this challenging season of life (with young-ish kids), then this post is for you!
My favorite part about the holiday season is getting all of the fabulous photo cards in the mail from our family and friends! We literally cover an entire door in our family room with all of the cards we receive and leave them up through January…maybe even February. Last year, we ordered gorgeous foil stamped holiday cards from minted.This year, I decided I wanted to create less waste (sans envelopes) and send out holiday postcards. So, I went ahead and scheduled an October shoot with Sweet Memories Photographyso I could get them out right after Thanksgiving. Are you ready to see the photos from our 2018 Boca Raton Train Museum holiday photo shoot?

Who knew? This time of year is kind of a big deal when it comes to how we and the City prepare for disaster in Boca Raton. Because mamas, THEY HAPPEN! Whether we get an awful thunderstorm that causes flooding along Second Avenue or (God forbid) a massive hurricane headed our way, it’s essential that our families are prepared both mentally and physically for the worst. Luckily the North Atlantic hurricane season is over at the end of November!
I’m not made of money. I know– I’m sure it’s an absolute shocker coming from a fellow Boca Raton resident. Especially with our town’s stellar reputation for financial success… 😉 But as a small business owner and mom of one, money tends to walk out the door quickly these days. Even though I 100% believe in investing in myself and my business, I have to be rather choosy about what events and conferences I attend on behalf of Modern Boca Mom. After all, I’m “just” a hyperlocal blogger.
If you’re not familiar with the blogging world (and I certainly don’t expect you to be), there are tons of blog conference options out there for you to learn, grow and connect with potential sponsors. If you’re a blogger with a large or growing national audience, it definitely makes sense to find a conference or two in your niche (parenting, lifestyle, health, design, the list goes on…) to become more visible in your industry and increase your bottom line.
