*We are proud to partner with Nike on this sponsored post about Nike PLAYlist, kids, and physical activity

Our kids are our future…let’s get them moving again!​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Everything about this year has been one big question mark which is especially hard when you’re a parent, and extremely confusing when you’re a kid. My kids never know what the day is going to be like. Is this an in-school day where I’ll have to wear my mask for seven hours straight or is this an at-home learning day where I have to sit all day looking at my computer? I’m not going to lie. In the past seven months, my kids have been doing a lot of sitting around.

The post On The Best Beach In Greece appeared first on Peaceful Dumpling.

We stepped off the bus at the bench with the dust-covered sunroof. Arid hills and gnarled olive trees painted the backdrop. The area looked forlorn and lost. I wondered if we were wrong to trust the woman on the train who recommended this as the best beach in Greece. Granted, the hour had been late for those of us who drank cold beers in the tavern car of the overnight train. The conversations of the dozen travelers, who ranged in age from their twenties to our sixties, included a heartfelt discussion about connections to our homelands. I trusted those who traveled away from their home base, particularly those without set-in-stone plans. Traveling without an itinerary took a strong positive belief...
