Finding a Miracle

In many ways, Mila is just like any other seven-year-old girl. 
She smiles constantly and giggles uncontrollably as her mother plays make-believe with her. Today, they’re in a snow-covered field with Olaf (Mila’s favorite character from Frozen). Nearby, her little brother Azlan is running through the forest as a tiger.

Paint by Numbers

My daughter Maggie loves art — drawing, painting, you name it. So, for her 5th birthday, I planned a watercolor art party. As a professional party planner, I’m all about the details but for a kid's birthday it shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. That’s where the DIY elements come in!
