Celebrating Traditions

Tantalizing smells wafting from the kitchen, Great-Grandma’s china being carefully laid on the table, wine breathing in a sparkling decanter, children scuffing their new shoes and wriggling out of clip on ties and warring siblings making peace.  The holidays are a great time for us to come together and are also a sublime time to […]

Love Your Girlfriends, Love Yourself

I’m trying to pump out this blog before one of my new favorite shows comes on.  Maybe you’ve heard of GCB (Good Christian Bitches)?  It’s a slightly mainstream delectable comedy on ABC about a recently widowed babe (fka the high-school “mean girl”) who has no choice but to move back in with her overbearing mama […]

A Grammy icon forever remembered. . .

Go Giants!

Nothing is more mystifying to me than when a grown man expresses tremendous emotion over of a sports game.  Yet, here I am typing this blog because tonight, my strong, creative, artistic bear of a man was in tears, literally . . . because the NY Giants just won Superbowl XLVI. I wanted to be […]

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday my sweet, smart, handsome son.  Exactly nine years ago I gave birth to you and the experience gave new definition to the word miracle. The day your child is born is the day that will change your life forever. And no matter how many children you have, any mother will tell you, each […]
