Fun Find: Mary Poppins @Dubai Opera

I went to watch the multi award-winning musical “Mary Poppins” with Nate and two of my very special and dear neighbors (Nate’s fairy grandparents) last night.

Venue Review: Dubai Butterfly Garden

This was our last weekend together as a little family before the kids and I jetset to Canada for a short getaway. Our old rescue dog Chico has a bad heart and I was sure we would have to put him down on Saturday. We had a vet appointment down near Jebel Ali in the […] Read more…

Venue Review: Children’s Lane

 This family run business has had its doors open for a mere seven months and is gaining tons of interest by the community and tourists alike. Especially health conscious Mommies, folks looking to purchase bespoke gifts and on the hunt for the perfect children’s bedroom/nursery set.
