About Us

Hello and welcome.  Learn more about myself and the family.


Gilbert Family

I am a wife and stay at home mom to two awesome kiddos.  Born and raised in New England (equal years in Rhode Island & Massachusetts) and moved to Atlanta back in 2007 with my GA raised husband.  We’ve been married since May 2000 and believe in the vow to death do us part. We instill love of family and God in our children. And yes, we are a multi-racial family.

As a homeschooling family, we love to travel and visit new venues.  The freedom to turn these adventures to learning experiences has been beneficial especially with our Autistic son. I have become an advocate for Autism and Special Needs through our journey and even a Dance Mom with my daughter’s career at Gwinnett Ballet Theatre.

I have a huge Disney obsession and you will see related posts often.  I also love Coffee and a good glass of wine. Family means a lot to me and while mine is all back in New England, we stay in touch and visit every chance we can.

I hope to bring fun ideas, helpful information and things to do -usually with a side of Autism. Look for reviews, crafts, recipes and travel advice. Adventures from your own back yard to wherever the wind takes you.



Meet hubby.  We’ve been married since May 2000 and have are shares of ups and downs but through it all, he remains the rock of this family.  He works hard to provide and makes it possible for myself to be home with the kids.  Hubby is a sports and beer kind of guy and of course loves tech gadgets with background in Coding and Management.

Daughter DIVA

Meet DIVA.  She is our oldest at 11 years old.  DIVA has proven time and again to be mature beyond her years.  She is bright and caring.  Not to mention an awesome big sister to her special needs little brother.  DIVA loves to dance and dreams of being an entertainer or teacher.

Lil Man

Meet Lil Man.  He is the Autism of this page and my inspiration in so many ways.  Lil Man never ceases to amaze me and has grown so up over the last few years and is now 7.  Although he does not speak, he is the sweetest kid you will ever met with an awesome personality that shines through.  While I don’t know what the future will hold for this guy, I know he will succeed.
