How’s that Nourish thing going?

After Spring Break was done and life resumed its normal routine, I realized that we are a quarter of the way through 2017.  Already.  That realization had me reflecting on how I was doing with my One Word – Nourish. The whole purpose of having One Word, instead of resolutions, was to keep things away […]

Parenting Hacks (that really work)

As we all know, parenting is no walk in the park.  Thankfully I have learned a few things, or hacks, as the boys have gotten older.  Things that make my life easier and simultaneously help them get ready for adulthood.  Win Win!  (the boys aren’t quite so sure of their win, but they will be!)  […]

Jamaica at sunset

Watts Take Negril

It’s been almost a week since returning home from Jamaica and I’m still wishing I was back on the island.  From the beautiful views and relaxation to the adrenaline inducing activities and new experiences, everything was covered.  And that doesn’t even include the people.  People that genuinely seemed to live the ‘One Love’ philosophy and […]

Watts Words – Summer is here.

What a week! In the past 7 days – we’ve had the last day of school/JJ’s last day of elementary school and Memorial Day.  Lots of joy with some nostalgia thrown in the mix.  Summer is here and with it we’ve already had wonderful times with family and down time as well.  Yay Summer! This […]
