48 Hours in San Francisco


48 Hours in San Francisco with Ana Fritsch of Lucky Penny Blog |

Most of you are new around here and may not know that before we lived in Brooklyn, our story started in San Francisco. It’s the city where we first met, fell in love, got married in the beautiful City Hall, and started our family. A lot has changed since we last lived there, but it still will always feel a little bit like home.

Last week, we travelled back to the west coast to celebrate my Mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. While we were there, she and her wife took the kids for a few nights so Aaron and I could have some time to be alone in the city. 48 hours was just enough time for me to get out, explore, and see all my old favorites (plus a few new ones). So today I’m sharing with you my guide for how to spend 48 hours in San Francisco.

Spring Break | Keeping Your Kids Engaged With Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet


This post was sponsored by Amazon. All words, thoughts, and opinions are 100% my own.

This year Spring Break vacation was a big one for us. We decided instead of taking a few smaller trips throughout the year, we wanted to take one really big amazing family trip for 9 days. We started our journey in London and then packed up and went to Marrakech for a few days. It was honestly one of the most incredible experiences of my life and I know the girls will remember this for a lifetime.

My one concern was how much everyone was going to be effected by being off of their routines for so long. I’m not really a rigid schedule mom, more like go with the flow, but once your kids are in school  with homework and after-school programs, it’s hard not to fall into a daily routine. I’ve noticed that Edith really thrives knowing what is coming up in her schedule and staying challenged intellectually. That’s where our Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet came in handy. I’ve talked about this tablet a few times (here and here) and it’s still one of my favorite products for the kids.
