It’s that time of year again. The New Year resolutions will be flowing and if you are anything like me they’ll be broken by the end of week one. I’m serious! This year I’m doing something a little different. Together as a family, we will pay it forward. I want to teach my kids about being charitable, to give freely without expecting anything in return, I want to teach my kids to be the change they want to see in the world. This year we will be donating our time, money, clothes and even hair… Fancy joining in? Here’s a list of 25 ways you can pay it forward this year, the possibilities are endless! (more…)

Each year I form a list of unrealistic goals and resolutions in the lead up to the New Year, and usually by day three my pledges are non existent. This year I rounded up the family and we created the Alphabet of Adventures.
The Alphabet of Adventure shows twenty-four places we would all like to visit next year. Starting with a trip to the National Aquatic Centre, we will head off and complete our journey around Ireland finishing off with a trip to Dublin Zoo.
We as a family pledge to try eat healthier and get active. Kayla and I have agreed to walk to school with exception to the weather. We have also decided to cut down on our sweet treats, we will drink more water and read more books.
Kayla and I have also decided we are going to teach Daddy to cook. Scrambled egg, beans, toast and cheerios just wont cut it any more. Tips, cookbooks, frilly aprons welcome!
I will blog our way through our a-z of adventures and keep you all updated on how we get on.
Happy New Year Guys!!!
