I’ve been to a real baseball game only once in my life. We saw the Yankees play the Braves a few years ago, and even though I’m not a huge baseball fan (or a sports fan), I had such a good time at the game.Read More
Having children changes everything. But this isn’t a post about children per se. It’s a post about hair. But everything is related, so join me on this little journey.
I have curly hair. I love it now, but this hasn’t always been the case.Read More
My girls never tire of riding their bikes. There must be something so freeing about using a set of wheels to get yourself from Point A to Point B, even if it’s all within the general vicinity of one’s own home.Read More
A dear family friend of ours won tickets to a show that they couldn’t attend, and, bless their hearts, they passed the tickets along to us. That means we had the opportunity to spend a night out as a family in the always clever Motown (or, as most of us know it, Morristown).Read More
I’m currently testing the Canon EOS R mirrorless camera. Since I’m home alone without human subjects, I decided to document a little of the reality that’s currently happening in my daughters’ bedrooms. Enjoy, commiserate, have a laugh… And if you’re so inclined, drop a comment on your thoughts on the quality of the images.Read More
This morning, I woke up before everyone else. I arose at 6:37, to be exact. I made coffee and I watched the sun come up. I saw a family of deer pass through our yard, and I listened to the rumbling of the rock tumbler that I can hear churning away in the basement.Read More
How’d we do it?
Barely. We barely did it. That’s how.
Most people plan Disney trips a year in advance. We booked ours three weeks out.Read More
OK, so we aren’t even remotely what one might define as “mall people.” Aside from the occasional visit to one of the outside restaurants, this was probably the first time the four of us went inside the mall together in the 4+ years that we’ve been a family of four.Read More
Because life is short, and children manage to take up so much of it, I decided that after 8 years of marriage and 14 years together, it was time Eric and I had some photos made of ourselves.Read More
Traveling with children can be so much fun. And traveling with children can be so challenging. In the end, though, I wouldn’t want to see the world without them.Read More
One day, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to take my daughters on a hike at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center in Englewood, New Jersey. They were so excited! They put on their best dresses (despite my protestations and the rising temperature) and sneakers (thanks to my good counsel), and off we went.Read More
Growing up, my dad used to take my brother Kris and I bowling. Pretty much all the time. I remember so distinctly that the moment you walked into the bowling alley, you were hit with a very familiar smell.
The smell that is the bowling alley.Read More
There's a lake in my town. It's not a natural lake; it was made by humans. It's a little more than a mile from my house. My daughters lovingly refer to it as "the beach."
"Mama, can we go to the beach today?"Read More
