Thanksgiving: Variations on a Theme

This year geography prevents my doing a whole Norman Rockwell thing for Thanksgiving.  I am in NY and most of my family is in LA, so spending the holiday with my six younger siblings and our thirteen children is, unfortunately, not happening.  But showering family with culinary affection isn’t how I think we should be […]

Two roads diverged . . .

Today was incredible.  The forecast called for 60 degree temperatures – amazing for NY so close to Thanksgiving – and I had managed to get a full night’s sleep.  I bounced from bed with the simple intention to get up and out early, head to the nearby farmer’s market and buy fresh cider and organic […]

Diva-Mama Debut!

After much fanfare, a few false starts and some sleepless nights, my website and blog are now “live.”  Oh, the pressure!  If only my mind could keep up with the millions of things I want to write about; the kids, the job, the blog, the boyfriend, the trip to Sedona, the blog, the mean dad, […]
