Hey! I'm Gina. I'm a mom to 4 kids, an educator at heart and I want to help you make your home a happier, smarter, and more awesome place to be. From ways to help your children love books and learning, to recipes and tips for managing your household, to my thoughts on happiness, I hope to be a helpful resource to you.

This is my awesome family. 13 years ago, I married an amazing man, and now we have 4 beautiful children. They are my everything. We don't live near the beach, but this is a photo of us from our vacation to California last summer.


Okay, here I am with my two sisters. We have 10 kids between us. My kids range from age 12 to 2, Rhonda's four kids range from ages 9 to 2,  and Tammy has two little boys, age 4 and 2, and she's pregnant with twin girls! I want to introduce them to you because Tammy and Rhonda will be contributing to this blog every now and then.


Children are naturally curious. I believe that kids are happiest when they are learning.  Children love to read, explore, learn and be challenged. Usually, we just have to get out of their way! Having a home where education is at the heart of our household is really important to me.

I believe that families are the most powerful force for good in the world. As the mom, you hold so much power over the temperature of your home.  Your happiness as the mom matters more than anything else when it comes to growing happy, thriving kids.

Your home is everything to your family. It's a place of rest and reprieve from the craziness of the world we live in. It's a place memories are made, first steps are taken, and where kids are made to feel loved. Making home an awesome place to be is something I'm always trying to do better at.
