My big birthday is coming up. I am welcoming this milestone with open arms. Turning 50 actually feels less challenging than turning 40 did for me. Maybe that is because I had two babies at the time and I was really tired and overwhelmed. Or, maybe it is because I am more comfortable and happy with who I am now. Older and wiser and more confident perhaps?

Cue the mom tears!

We usually go to Florida for spring break, but this year we decided to mix it up and go somewhere that our kids have never been before. I highly recommend trying a new destination on your next vacation.

So I thought it would be the right time to share some of our favorite ways to build up our immune systems in the winter months when the sick season hits here in Connecticut.
