Sensory-Friendly Movie Experiences

April is National Autism-Awareness Month. I will be sharing resources throughout next month (primarily on my facebook page) that were helpful to us when we started out on our journey.

It wasn’t so easy when the children were young and couldn’t sit through the film without disturbing others. It was discouraging and not fun so we stopped going for a while. When we learned of sensory-friendly films at AMC Theatres, I felt like it described us and gave us an opportunity to go back to the theater again without feeling judged. It … READ MORE

prAna New Spring Active Wear, Everywhere – Workout Then Errands

I am loving my prAna pieces from their new Spring line. It is super comfortable, and stylish enough to wear while running errands. I am sure I am not the only one that love athleisure wear. I wore this the other day, was in it most of the day, and didn’t want to take them off – I grabbed coffee with a friend, dropped off children, and wore it to my doctor’s appointment. Most of the time, I can’t wear my yoga clothes out, because they’re either not stylish or I don’t want to smell all day. The Ostara Top that I’m wearing in Coal is made with organic cotton, … READ MORE
