Oh how things have changed.

I have had the pleasure of spending the past week at the beach with my babes. We have savored our time here. We have enjoyed new things in new ways. We have eaten ice cream for breakfast; we have had nightly talent shows; we have chased seagulls, caught clams, gone on rollercoasters and stayed in our ...

11 things

The other day, in this post, I promised that I would blog more. Some of the blog posts will be long and serious, Some will be short, little vignettes. And some will be totally random. Welcome to totally random. This post is being brought to you by the fact that over the past few days I ...

What I want

 I cannot start this post without acknowledging two important things: 1. I have a LOT about which to write. I have formulated at least a dozen posts in my head over the holiday weekend (about gratitude, parenting my daughter v. my son, Thanksgiving and what it means to me...) but, for now, this is what is flying ...

Under my skin.

This is a subject that I never thought that I would broach on here. Six years ago, when I started this site, I never thought that I would be write this post because I never thought that it would apply to me. I never thought that I would get a tattoo.

This custom has been observed for hundreds of years, but its origin is unknown. In my family, it has always been a totally silly day, and ...

A Post About Sex.

Mommy, Ever After is a blog that began under the umbrella of "mommy blog" and has evolved a bit into the world of popular culture and mental health, but really, it's mostly about being a parent and a person. That said, this site is definitely not appropriate for children. I share some very personal details about ...

Things that made my heart burst yesterday:

The incredibly touching comments that I received on my emotional day post on Facebook. The launch of the new website for Pearl Communications, my PR firm. It was actually the owner who suggested that I use Brand Revive and then ended up hiring them herself, with brilliant results. A great phonecall with my friend who told me ...

The way we do (and how it’s new).

Our holidays this year have been completely different than ever before. Up until last year, I experienced the winter holidays in nearly the same way every year for as long as I can remember: Hanukkah was a time of many big family gatherings (when you have a huge family that all lives locally, the pile of presents is ...
