Mommy Gut

As humans, we are often told to listen to our hearts. We are told to pay attention to our "inner voice" and that its words should reign supreme over all else. There is an actual movement surrounding a greater effort to pay attention to our feelings, and while this is something that I would ordinarily get behind (and, in ...

We won

Last night, in an amazing game that did origami with my insides, our Philadelphia Eagles won the Superbowl. Did you catch that? The underdogs over here? We won. For me, this win meant so much; it is the ultimate Philly story (it is just so us); the story in and of itself is a pretty remarkable one; it gave hope to so ...

Their names

Ok. This is a biggie. Not in the way that some other posts are biggies, but in a different (and maybe even biggie-er) way. I have been writing this blog for over seven and a half years. On it I have shared my innermost thoughts and feelings; my deep secrets; my real-time triumphs and trials. I have even shared ...

The Dark Side

It started with the covers. This morning, from 7:00am - 7:25am, I had the privilege of sharing my side of the bed with a tall, red-headed child who will turn four in exactly one week. My husband had left early for the day, my daughter had already made her way downstairs, and so it was just ...

I got a little sad

I have had a lot of blog posts formulating in my head. I want to share so much with you. I have wanted to share what I have been up to; some cool updates. I have wanted to share with you some fun or helpful or pretty new finds so that you can enjoy them like I have. I thought that ...

Five Things Podcast

Hello! Hi! I've missed you! As you can see from the photos above, I have been busy. SOOO BIZZY. You know, with things like re-doing my bathroom, getting makeovers at my daughter's new salon, taking & printing photos at the dinner table with my girlfriends and dancing at Kellerman's. DIRTY dancing. In all seriousness, the collage above shows ...

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 ...

Festen

"It's daddy's birthday, oh yes it is, and it is today!" This birthday chant has become a tradition in our family -- mostly as a joke -- after having seen "Festen", the dark, dramatic play based on the Danish movie, on Broadway. For my 21st birthday, my parents and I got tickets to this star-filled show, featuring ...
