A Mother’s love is special. It rejoices with every triumph, it is steadfast through the tough times and it is even enthusiastic to receive a Christmas card of its four-legged grandchild. With Mother’s Day coming up, it’s time to show mom how thankful you are to have her in your life and for all that she does, and there is no better way to do that than with family friendly events in Michigan.

When you’re looking forward to something fun time seems to really drag. You’ve been there. Think about how Hoopie must feel waiting for March Magic Hoopfest to start up! All year long he waits for this hands-on basketball fan fest set for 8 short days away. When it starts getting close like this he’s really getting anxious and while he tries to help, he… well, let’s just say he he’s really best suited for Hoopfest… and that’s about it. You remember last week when he tried helping out around the office and ended up making so many mistakes he fouled out? Well, it was suggested Hoopie try and go help out with a few of this year’s generous Hoopfest Sponsors. Things started out okay because Hoopie brings plenty of enthusiasm but then.. well… see for yourself.

Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history. The event grew out of Negro History Week, the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Take some time to celebrate the numerous accomplishments and key social and cultural contributions of African Americans by exploring a few of these Greater Lansing attractions and events.

Feel all the feelings of love in Michigan's capital region by using all 5 of your senses.

There cant be anything more special than a gorgeous gift, wrapped up beautifully. Sometimes the elaborate wrapping and anticipation can exceed the gift itself. So find something absolutely fabulous to put inside that awesome gift wrap at fine Lansing area shops like Kositchek’s, Silver & Beyond, Grace Boutique and maybe even something a bit flirty at Curvaceous Lingerie.
