March 2017

St Patrick’s day has just passed and with Easter coming up, I thought I would take this moment to address a subject that is very close to my heart. 

With the realities in today’s world, it can sometimes be difficult to maintain a level of wonder and magic in our children’s lives. Usually the first aspect of this to be dismissed, are the whimsical legends and traditions that allow a child’s imaginations to fly freely; Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, leprechauns, the tooth fairy, etc. Anyone who personally knows me knows that this is a very important thing to me; I want my sons to believe for as long as they possibly can. 

My family and I engage in quite a few traditions that require a little planning, but makes it all worth it to see the boys experience that magical moment and to know that they are embracing that remarkable aspect of childhood. 

Matt and I dye and hide all the Easter eggs the night before Easter so our boys can wake up to a fun Easter morning courtesy of the Easter Bunny. (We have become experts at removing dye from our fingers). This year, I read about a tradition for St. Patrick’s Day which involves hiding gold wrapped chocolate coins, putting some green food dye in the toilet bowls and leaving a tricky little note that a leprechaun may have written for St. Paddy’s Day morning. 

Whatever the holiday may be, I encourage you to create some magical memories and traditions for your young ones, after all, you’re only young once and before you know it, they’ll be off to college! Speaking of college, this month’s blog addresses Post Secondary Education Support, or simply put – how do couples pay for college post separation and once child support ends.

Something just for the adults

On April 8th, Alpha Phi Gamma Zeta is holding their Annual Red Dress Gala. This event is also very near and dear to Heather since she was an Alpha Phi at the University of Puget Sound and this is her chapter also! This amazing group of women do this every year; it’s a charity gala that benefits women’s cardiac care research, education and treatment through the Alpha Phi Foundation. This year it is being held at the Tacoma Country and Golf Club and it is a wonderful evening of food, a live and silent auction, and live performances! This is a great excuse to get dressed up and enjoy an evening out while still helping a wonderful cause, and of course, this event is open to the public, but you do have to purchase your tickets online. You can find more information and purchase tickets here.
