We celebrated this little adventurer again today at lunch with a groups of friends. Seven. I still can't believe he's seven!
This photo is from our recent winter trip to NY. Traveling with kids is not always the easiest choice, but it's so rewarding in the end. Exposing them to new places, new culture, new tastes. We've been doing it since it was just us and our oldest, and they're pros at getting hot chocolates while we explore new coffee shops. In fact, I quite clearly remember Aliyah muttering, "Oh, I just love New York," as she sauntered down the street, cup in hand. "That's great honey, but we're in Chicago," was my reply at that particular time. Haha! I guess there are some striking similarities, and now that she's older, she can also appreciate the vast differences too! Sharing how we spent 48 hours in New York as a family this winter on #freshmommyblog today! (Hotel stay courtesy of our friends at @omniberkshire)

Today on #freshmommyblog I'm sharing my top 15 #essentialoil diffuser blends for a healthy winter! Remember that stomach bug that was going around? In our family, it didn't last long and I'm sure this helped! Plus, we're giving away a diffuser and three winter blends from @sparknaturals!!!

Taking our family to the pier, taking in the sunset, taking as many moments to ourselves as we can. Okay, and maybe sharing the ocean with a few birdie friends too (we actually had a lot of fun watching these guys dive bomb the water for dinner) 🌊

Her first park swing. I think it's safe to say, she loves it! ❀

Back home and into my favorite shirt!! Thankfully we (meaning Aria, and in turn me) slept so much better in our own beds last night, though I still woke to my own at home brew, happy kiddos and the scent of fresh laundry. Yes, I have an amazing man... he started laundry for me today, had fresh sheets on the bed last night and sent me for a massage this afternoon. Home sweet home. ❀
Get your #icoffeesohard statement tee from the #freshmommyshop at while they're still available this month!! A new one drops soon!

Spending some chill time at home with this little one, we've been unpacking, washing laundry, printing some phone photos from Chicago and I'm about to dive back in to our #bookofthemonth! Are any of you reading along with me? I can't wait for our live event next month! -
I also came home to a couple of gifts 🎁, this @danielwellington Dapper watch being one of them!! It's simple and classic and keeping me on my game today! You can get 15% off AND a free card holder when you order from the Dapper collection and use code TABITHA at! #danielwellington #ad #liketkit

My happiest little travel companion. I'd adventure anywhere with her ✈️ and happily back home to Florida today.

Just before I left for Chicago, I was so excited to partner with @aldiusa again, sharing one of our own favorite at home recipes! This one pot (meaning way easier clean up, a mom's best friend!) goat cheese pasta is something that every single one of my kiddos, and my husband, loves to eat! We make it on the regular. Head to my YouTube channel at to get the full recipe, watch Aria help in the kitchen and see how much we saved in just one meal! #iLikeALDI #ad #tryandtell

Traveling with kids means toting along lots of drinks and snacks, as well as finding places to let them burn off all of that energy. @maggie.daley.park was a perfect way to burn off breakfast at the nearby Wild Berry Cafe too! (Even on a cold day this week and with a still-sick kiddo) Add both to your #Chicago bucket list! Can you spot my clan on the bridge?!

This will be my mantra today. Baby girl didn't sleep last night 😴 which means neither of us did. It's also the last day of the @chicagoautoshow2017 and I'll be headed home tomorrow, which adds a little pep to my step. It's the push and pull, the give and take of life on the road, and makes home that much more special! ❀ See part of the Auto Show on my stories... and grab your #icoffeesohard shirt from #freshmommyshop while they're available! πŸ‘†πŸ» Link in profile.

Morning snuggles πŸ’ž Traveling with little ones is full of effort and translates to less sleep, but having them experience life with you and the tender moments together make it all worth it. I πŸ’— my squishy, snuggle bug.

"There's no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this." -
Missing my big, crazy, beautiful clan right about now (though I'm getting a wee bit more sleep tonight while they're safely back at home), and even though we all had a stomach bug this week, I love that took a few breaths of fresh air to explore the city around us.
Loving our @evenflobaby Pivot stroller system in the city! It's making our strolls, and baby's nap while out, a breeze. I spy a cutie-pie peeking out 😍 #ad #evenflo
