It’s summer time! The kids are out of school, and everyone’s frantically scrambling to find child care (fingers crossed), summer camps (thoughts & prayers, y’all), or just winging it (sending big hugs).

Summer is here and our kiddos are out of school and while it may be all fun and games for them, parents are often stuck scrambling to find child care options before the summer season even begins.

For many parents and caregivers, it means having to figure out what we are going to do while summer is out for ten to twelve weeks in the year…and if you’re a parent that has...

The following is a pile of books that came recommended, won awards, or are books I've heard about for years, all written for Spanish speakers and about the LGBTQ experience.

While Pride month continues to bloom, I’m inspired and motivated by the many incredible Granite Staters who are working to build a better and more inclusive New Hampshire. I was so excited when I met Bethany Murabito (she/her) in the halls of the state house this spring when we instantly connected over our fierce love for the LGBTQIA+ community and our cat eyeliner sharp enough to… well, if you know you know!
