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

Tips for Tuesday - Movies: RBG & Music: Kelsea Ballerini Unapologetically

We were given access to the movie and CD mentioned below for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Mom - Today's I am recommending a movie and a CD. They are both very topical and are all about  empowerment and the strive for equality for all.

First I am recommending the movie RBG. RBG is a documentary about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.  All I knew about Ruth Bader Ginsberg before I saw this movie was that she is one of only three women to to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States to date. That would have been enough. However, there is so much more to her that that. Not only has she achieved much more than a woman of her time was ever expected to achieve, she has been a champion of gender equality for women (and for men) for her entire career even before she sat on the Supreme Court. The movie also shows the personal side of Justice Ginsberg. Her interactions with her husband of over 50 years and other family members as well as with people she has worked with. Even those, she has not always agreed with love her. She had a great friendship with Justice Antonin Scalia even though they often did not see eye to eye on many issues. This movie is completely enlightening and uplifting. It will leave you full of respect and gratitude for Justice Ginsberg both for the kind of person she is and for what she has been able to achieve in the eternal strive for equality for us all.

Second. I am recommending Unapologetically by Kelsea Ballerini. These is powerful album full of songs of empowerment. These are not songs about a meek woman crying over her man. This is a woman who is telling a man to get over himself (Get Over Yourself) and grow up (High School). She doesn't want to sing the same old love songs (I Hate Love Songs) but that doesn't mean she can't be in love and when she does fall in love she does so without apology (Unapologetically).The rest of the album is full of songs that are equally meaningful and equally powerful.  However, it is not enough for an album to be meaningful, it has to sound good too, and this one does that. Ms. Ballerini's voice is soft and sweet on the ballads and soars on the more upbeat numbers. The music is catchy and fun too. It is definitely an album that you will want to listen to again.
