I’m Still Here

In March I told you I was taking a break from blogging for a while. I needed to step away and refresh myself and take time for me and my family. But that was only part of the truth. It’s been a couple of months of non-stop stress, between work, family, home and health issues. […]

Oops. I’m on a break and I forgot to tell you. I want to do a really good job as a blogger. I want to do this with joy and excitement and inspire you. But sometimes I need to step away and refresh myself and this is one of those times. I need to take […]

After three years, I turned off the baby monitor and packed it away. I have no idea how long is “normal” to use a baby monitor. I’m guessing most parents stop using it when their child makes the move to a regular bed. When she was in her crib, as a solid sleeper I always […]

40 Questions to Ask Your Parents and Grandparents


Today is my Grandma’s 89th birthday and I’ve been thinking about all the things I know (and don’t know) about her and that side of our family. I grew up living only a few blocks away from my maternal grandparents, so we’ve always been very close. As many of you know my daughter was born […]
