I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Amwell Makes Getting Medical Advice Fast and Easy

This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and Amwell. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Nowadays, you can do anything from home even get medical advice although that may not seem like a good idea to some people. We have to admit, we were sceptical too. However, we recently had the opportunity to try Amwell. Amwell is one of the top names in telemedicine. In fact, Amwell is aiming to be the Amazon of telemedicine. For more about that, click here for a recent article in the Wall Street Journal. We were pleasantly surprised by our experience using Amwell. Amwell is quick, easy, convenient, and affordable. The doctors at Amwell are pleasant and knowledgable. They are not just trying to push medication. If they don't think your issue is something that they can deal with on-line and they think that you need to see a doctor in person for instead, they will tell you so upfront. This makes me feel more confident that I can trust their advice. For more about Amwell, see below:
