Breakaway with a Great Gift and Experience (Win a $100 GC CAN)

This morning when I was packing lunches my seven year old asked me to find her something. She is usually the first to help so I jokingly said “You need me to find it? Do I have to do everything?” She laughed and responded “Yes, until Mother’s day”.  I know she has been working hard at school on some fun Mother’s day treats for me and trying to keep it a secret. I usually get it pretty good from the family and can rest as I need/want. We spend the day as a family hanging out and enjoying one another. This year my kids asked me if there was anything I wanted them to get me. To be honest, all I ever want is more time with them, quality time making memories and sharing a laugh.

Breakaway Experiences is exactly what I want!

A fun unique experience I can use on an activity on my own or with them. Check it out!
