Connected Independence – Smart Homes for Seniors

Advertisment. All opinions are my own. Now that we are homeowners, my husband has been obsessed with converting our home into a Smart Home. We have several of the devices that we can control remotely like light switches, thermostat, garage, and we got an Echo Show for Christmas, but it takes time to do it all. Last week, I attended “Connected Independence”, a Smart Home designed for seniors. It had me thinking about my own aging parents, and I also pictured myself using this technology when I’m not there to help them. “According to AARP, nearly 90% of adults ages 65+ prefer staying in their homes and aging in their … READ MORE

Flower Fields Carlsbad Ranch Attractions

I received tickets in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.  One of my favorite things to do in the Spring is visit The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch. The 50 acres of rolling hillside tecolote ranunculus is just beautiful, it blooms for six to eight weeks out of the year (March to May), and it also overlooks the Pacific Ocean. This seasonal and popular attraction get visitors from all over the world. I think it can be enjoyed several different ways, and with different people, because it is great for all ages. It is family-friendly, handicapped-friendly, and I also saw couples and groups of friends. The last day … READ MORE

House of Blues Anaheim Birthday Dinner + OMD Concert Recap!

Post written by me for House of Blues. All opinions are my own.  My husband and I both have birthdays in April. We are about a week apart so we often blow out our candles together. One of our favorite celebrations this year was at a Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) concert at the House of Blues in Anaheim. They’re one of our favorite 80’s band, and they still sound good after all this time! They performed mostly their greatest hits and some of their new songs. It was nostalgic, and we would love to see them again live if they ever come back! Dinner Before the Concert Before the concert, … READ MORE
