I’m moving.  Yes, that’s moving with an ing.  I would love to say I just moved, but unfortunately, I can’t say that because I’m not done.  I’ve only moved a few times in my life, and except for this time, they were all relatively small scale.  I moved to the dorms in college, but I

The view from the Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel was beautiful!

I recently attended my first Mom 2.0 Summit.  The president of the company that I work for suggested that I go.  I’m always up for a new learning opportunity so I was definitely up for the challenge.  Once I heard it was at the Ritz-Carlton I was totally in!  Regardless of the location, I thought
