Gift of Lights

I have to give you guys an update on an amazing Christmas experience you need to add to your family traditions.  I had the awesome opportunity to visit The Gift of Lights at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway a week ago for their VIP evening and it was just beautiful!

In case you're not familiar, the Gift of Lights is more than a mile long "road" at the Speedway consisting of LED light displays, totally over one million lights!  At the end of your journey you can enjoy hot chocolate and other refreshments that are available and there will also be photo opportunities with Santa and other holiday characters.  The kids like the moving and sparkling light displays.  It was fun to drive through the different themed sections, something you don't really get driving around from house to house.  The kids liked the leaping dolphin arches!

What I love most about this is the charitable aspect:
Gift of Lights at New Hampshire Motor Speedway is happy to give back to charitable organizations. This year, a percentage of New Hampshire Motor Speedway proceeds will benefit Speedway Children’s Charities. The Gift of Lights event will also be a Salvation Army collection site.
You can visit the Gift of Lights Mon - Thu: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm, Fri - Sat: 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm or Sun: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm.  The price is $15 per car and if you bring 3 canned goods to be donated to the NH Food Bank, you'll receive $2 off admission.  Enjoy!

I'm Alive!

Wow, it's been over 5 months since I've last blogged!  I am alive!  Not a whole lot to catch you up on. 

The biggest changes (and more coming) are my kids diets and attempting to subdue my daughters ADHD symptoms.  We hope to do this by starting GAPs with her in the coming weeks.  She is already doing a gluten and dairy free diet as well as trying to keep the sugars to a minimum.  It's practically a job in and of itself.  I will write more later as to what we are doing and how things progress.  I picked up my beef bones today from the amazing Tina Sawtelle of Pinewoods Yankee Farm.  Broth is one of the cornerstones of the healing process.

We're also headed out soon to an awesome Christmas event I will review for your later this week.  I can't promise how frequently I'll be blogging, but I'll do my best to keep up this winter!
