“You’ll Be Back”

Last summer, it was all about the music. In kid world, it was all about Hamilton. My son, in particular, was obsessed with the soundtrack and we had to play "You'll Be Back" on repeat. And by "had to" I mean that I was loving the fact that my kids were getting into musical theatre. Now, it's ...

Baby is back….baby!

Why, hello there! Yes! It's me! I'm back! Remember me? I first wrote to you one, whole long year ago. Yes, it's me! I'm back! HEELLLOOO! So let me just begin by getting a few important things out of the way: One, I am no longer a baby. I am a big girl. See how much more eloquently ...

Important Things

As I promised earlier this week, I would be sharing some fun, some not-fun and some important things with you. And then the week happened. And do you know what that means? We had MORE fun, and not-fun, and important things. So, I will tell you one of each. Fun  Growing up, my family had a tradition: The QC. Every ...

The other things

Not too long ago I wrote a post about the things that I would, without a doubt, never be able to do. No matter how hard I worked, the "never" things in that piece were unattainable and I could accept some of those things more easily than others. Not being able to marry a Kardashian? Fine. Not being able to Kardashian ...

Love is Love

I should start off by saying that this post is not what you think it is going to be about. And, that this post is exactly what you think it is going to be about. Since the news of yesterday's horrific shooting in Orlando broke (and I am choosing my words carefully; it was many things, and ...

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 ...

Barcelona

I wrote this piece on Thursday, August 17, on the day when a van drove down La Rambla and into human beings; the day of a brutal attack. It was too fresh to post that day, and so I am publishing it now, a few days later, with no less heaviness in my heart. The photo above ...

DIY Powder Room

 Hello, and welcome to my first real DIY Post. Also, this is the first time that I am showing you my Powder Room. I am always posting pictures of my family in my home and #keepinitreal, but this room has remained under wraps. I am sure you can imagine why. Oh yeah A little closer, please. Cardinal Rule ...

I’m a gardener now!

So, the title of this post may be slightly misleading, but I am going to say that in comparison to where I was at this time last year, I am a freakin' plant expert. I have never liked gardening, and I think it is for two main reasons: 1. I have never been good at it 2. A nearly debilitating ...

Here I stand.

It was last Thursday night. I posted a video on my "Insta Stories", in which I lamented about being exhausted, run-down and oh-so-busy. To see me looking "terrible", as I had been told twice that day (out of love, I should mention), you can click here. At that moment, I was just sitting down to dinner--a frozen burrito ...
