Looking at photos I took of my daughter the other day, I can no longer deny she may be 3. But she is 3 going on 16. I’m equal parts floored and terrified of the clear vision I now have of her as a teenage girl. A teenage girl in Boca Raton, no less. Pray […]

Chocolate and Art Make for Sweet Weekends This February

What does art and chocolate have in common for local families in February? My family and I have a love/hate relationship with the Boca Raton season.

Review: Tucker Duke’s Perfect for Parents and Pee-Wees
