Charming.

I had a few conversations recently in which I shared that one of my very favorite words is "charm", in both it's noun and verb form. I was just looking up the video that I made chronicling my past year in music, and do you know how YouTube shows you a list of videos down the ...

AWESOME.

Do you know the expression "pour your heart out"? Well, that is what I wish I could do, but not just in the idom-way that implies the sharing of your deepest secrets and fears; I also am someone who tries not to say the word "literally" when I don't actually mean something literally (eg. I don't ...

We talked about sex. (Let’s talk some more.)

SEE BELOW FOR IMPORTANT UPDATE: Last week, I wrote my first ever post about sex. I am very careful about the content that I include on my site, a site called "Mommy, Ever After", but I think that the post (and the subsequent conversations that it sparked) are lifestyle issues that will help all of us ...

When life hands you lemons…

Today, after I had picked up my daughter early from school, she told me, excitedly, that she loved her new lunchtime drink; A lemonade juice box. It's funny; I think very often about the moments that make me really feel like a mom. And it is not the ones that I would expect. Like packing lunch, for ...

Uptown Funk

I am the first person to admit the following two facts: 1. I am not at all in touch with today's current music scene. I know about Sia's "Chandelier" because of an SNL skit sent to me by a friend, I have heard of only about half of the mainstream artists and know very little of ...

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 ...

But then I erased my text.

I started to type this post thinking that I would link to all of the New Year's Eves that I have written about in the past, referencing some recent posts about letting things go and moving forward, but in an effort to really take steps away from the past, I am going to leave those ...

That which is ours.

I am a Jewish girl who loves Christmas. I don't think I am particularly unique. I do not have a tree in my house, nor do we celebrate in any religious way. My child attends a Jewish preschool at a Synagogue. But Christmas is just the best. It's CHRISTMAS! I have gotten to experience true Christmas twice in my life: The ...

“Are my lips purple?”

So, in an effort to avoid hammering it over your head, I think I've made it pretty clear that I have been determined to do the holidays right this year. Last year=THE WORST This year=cheery, cozy, chocolatey, chummy, cocoa-y, Christmasy, Chinese food-y, cookie party-y, etc. I have a whole Christmas Story (not to be confused with A Christmas Story, mostly due ...
