2022 What A Year!

Every year I always do this blog post to recap our year. We had a lot of fun this year. We are excited to see what 2023 holds for us. May this new year bring you much joy and fun. May you find peace, love and success. May this year bring new happiness, new goals, new achievements, new inspirations and above all good health! Wishing you nothing but happiness in the new year. Here’s to another year full of joy, laughter, and unforgettable memories. Remember, no matter how hard the past has been, you can always begin again!


We spent the month at home cleaning and organizing.  We participated in some virtual press junkets, screened lots of shows, movies and did some shopping.


We attended the SCL Disney event.  I literally purchased every single fanny pack, backpack and patch!  We met the owners Libby and Kendall and started a life-long friendship.  It was the best day!  We celebrated Valentine's Day at home.  Our tradition every year is spending it as a family and making home made heart shaped pizzas.

Kennedy received first reconciliation.  She had her first "friend" birthday party and invited several girls to paint ceramics and celebrate her.  She loved it.  The kids finished the school year and did amazing.


We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, The Charles Schultz Museum, The San Diego Zoo, LEGOLAND, and Sea World.  The kids also started tennis lessons.

 I am so grateful for the opportunities, events we were invited to attend and all the fun we had. There is nothing more important to me than making memories with this family of mine.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along, reading this blog, following me on my social media outlets and always caring for our family. We worked with so many amazing companies/ brands and interviewed so many wonderful celebrities and screened so many movies for Netflix, HBO Max, Paramount+, Disney+, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and more. It is always such an honor to be asked to screen movies early and share my reviews and thoughts. It has been a blessed year and I can't wait to see what 2023 holds.
