Easter on the East Coast

Easter is first and foremost a religious holiday. People gather in churches (sometimes for the first time all year) to celebrate The Resurrection. Of course for us moms, there’s another side to this beautiful holiday – the Easter Bunny.

Couple all of this with the fact that it’s often a three day weekend for most employees, and you’ve got the makings of a great vacation.

Escape the Winter Blues at Ocean Club Resorts Turks & Caicos

3 things you should tell yourself before getting into your swimsuit

It’s swimsuit season, usually a dreaded time for women everywhere, except for the ones whose bodies we ogle over, whose Instagram pictures we stare at until our eyes bleed, and those who make us feel like no matter how many hours we put into the gym or how many calories we count we will never amount to their bikini-goddess-role-modelness. What if this summer though, we learn how to embrace the body we’ve been graciously given, we try instead to become healthier rather than 6 pack toned, we enjoy our family and friends instead of living in the pit of gym-hell, and we tell ourselves a few things before getting into our swimsuit that might actually build us up instead of tear us down.

A Week of Teacher Appreciation Ideas

In the course of one day, our children’s teachers are not only their educators; they are their cheerleaders, their defenders, their nurse, their coach, their psychologists, their activists and their friend. Most importantly, teachers are our children’s mentors and role models; the person who has the potential to be one of the most influential individuals in our child’s lives.

One thing’s for sure: Teachers deserve mountains of appreciation. 

Most schools have one week a year, typically in the spring, when the students and parents can shower our teachers and school staff members with adoration and thanksgiving. Teacher Appreciation Week is a fun time to get kids involved with expressing gratitude. Some schools assign a theme to each day of the week so that everyone is consistent, such as bring a flower for your teacher on Monday and a candy treat on Tuesday. In that vane, we’ve come up with a week-long list of ideas to acknowledge the hard work of our wonderful teachers, all of which you can tailor to how simple or detailed you’d like your gifts to be.
