How to Plan a Space Coast Family Road Trip from South Florida

Never in a million years would I have thought my family and I’d be taking so many road trips in 2020. Like most, I’m still too nervous to get on a plane with my husband and daughter…but we’re all craving a major change of scenery. Luckily, we live in Florida and there are so many fun, active and cultural things to do right in our state’s backyard–even just two hours from Boca Raton! This in and of itself makes for a great long weekend away. So, let me ask you this: What do you get when you combine space, surf, sun and tons of cool animal species? A SUPER FUN Space Coast family road trip!

Subscribe to Better Health with Direct Care by MD Now

South Florida moms, it’s time to listen up! If taking care of your own health on a more regular basis is on your fall ‘to do’ list (and it really should be), this post is for you…and me. I got a physical at MD Now earlier this summer and pretty much everything looked good, except for one thing: My cholesterol. No matter how much I exercise and try to eat right, those numbers keep on rising.

Becoming a Mommy Master of Parenting in Our “New Boca Normal”

Lately, I’ve been waking up each morning and thinking to myself: W-T-F. I even read somewhere that there’s a campaign going to make ‘2020’ a curse word! 😉 With everything parents are dealing with, it’s no surprise either. Life is hard right now and us moms are being asked to accept it as our “new Boca normal.”

Who would have ever thought that school wouldn’t happen in person this fall for the majority of local kids? And, face masks would become the hottest back-to-school accessory? It’s a tough pill to swallow…so that’s why I’m glad to know a local Boca Raton therapist to help.
