THE MUSEUM OF ILLUSIONS – LOS ANGELES :: MY PHOTO JOURNAL

On my daughter’s 8th birthday, we took her to the Museum of Illusions, one of the best things to do in Hollywood.

And I’m glad we did. It’s a super fun experience/museum with multiple rooms where you can bring your kids and take fun and memorable pix and creative selfies. It’s an Instagram curation haven. (Akin to the Museum of Ice Cream — but with cool 3-D paintings and an upside-down house.)

If you can, get the VIP all-access package. You get to skip the line (which trails around the corner) – and yes, that line is even for those who have purchased advanced tickets.

The all-access package allows you access to both rooms – the 3D Illusions Rooms and the Upside Down House that will take your breath away, transporting you to a world of fantasy and imagination!

Here are some fun photos I took of the family so you can see what you have in store!

How to manage infertility is the million-dollar question. Many of my friends are currently enduring this battle. The laborious efforts of the search for motherhood and family, unable to bring a child to life. Some suffer miscarriages — and others haven’t been able to conceive at all. In addition to my friends,  6.7 million women of…

And what she has pulled together from life’s resources, experiences and her own mentors has been encapsulated in her book PARENTSPEAK – and it’s a gem. For those who haven’t yet read LEHR’s WALL STREET JOURNAL essay,…
