There are some things I can’t imagine not having around the holidays. One of these items might surprise some, but I can’t imagine the holidays without my Echo dot and Alexa.

Celebrate Family Volunteer Day!

No other activity has brought our family closer together than volunteering and giving back to our community. Even when my kids were really young I knew I wanted them understand the value and purpose to giving back and volunteering. I don’t always have a set schedule on when or where we volunteer and some of the most needed opportunities come up out of the blue. I am always on the lookout though for causes our family can contribute to. That is why I am really excited about Family Volunteer day!
