One of my newest obsessions (and there are many) are free font downloads. At first I was leery about downloading things from the internet — we all know that’s the fastest and easiest way to contract a deadly virus — but I’ve found some reputable sites that actually offer really fun and totally f-r-e-e fonts. I’ve taken the risk for you and downloaded all of the following fonts, so you can do so without worry. Once they’re downloaded, open the .ttf file and save it to your fonts folder.

As a mom, I know how important it is to capture those little moments with the kiddos, they grow and change way too fast. Lucky for you, Qiana K. Photography is giving away the kitchen sink in the month of March with numerous deals and giveaways. Read all about it here:
March Madness is here!
Nora and I recently went into downtown Phoenix with another friend to take our kiddos to the Children’s Museum and we couldn’t be more excited to check out all it had to offer. Little did we know as we got out of our cars on that fine Monday morning that the museum is closed. Every Monday. We made the most of it and did some much-needed shopping at the Biltmore.
However, after returning home I made sure to check the hours for future reference and discovered this awesome tidbit! The museum offers free admission every First Friday of the month from 5:00pm-9:00pm. This is in conjunction with “First Friday” that also goes on every First Friday of the month and is a definite to check out! So next time you’re in the area and looking for something fun to do with your kids – and FREE – drop on in!
Nora Ephron said that “having an infant is like tossing a hand grenade into a marriage.” Carol Ummel Lindquist, who has spent twenty-five years as a marital therapist, agrees wholeheartedly. She says that sixty-seven percent of couples with children are less happy than they were before kids–largely because of unrealistic expectations. Some of Lindquist’s advice seems simplistic (“Try to go one hour, one day or one week without criticizing anything,”) but perhaps simple is the best place to start for couples trying to function on four hours of sleep. Happily Married With Kids has chapters on constructive fighting, how to find quality childcare, and ways couples can revitalize a lackluster sex life. While the topic of new-parenthood has been covered before, this is still a worthy reference for couples short on sleep and patience, but desperately in need of quick solutions to bring the fun and connection back to their marriage. –Erica Jorgensen
