Snow day 2019

Well, snow came and gone this weekend. Like a woman in labor, it began its descent in the early hours of Saturday morning, when we were all asleep, and we woke up to almost a feet of snow. So, what's a mom to do but take her kids outside for fun in the snow? Unfortunately,… Continue reading Snow day 2019

On parenting and religion

This afternoon, I was intrigued by what I saw in a New York Times newsletter. It said, "Consciously or not, many parents either replicate or rebel against their own upbringing." This pretty much sums my up entire childhood and how I feel as an adult, as a parent of two kids. I am a rebel,… Continue reading On parenting and religion

The idea is that instead of sitting on the toilet with your phone (which is a terrible idea, by the way, and one flaw that I have yet to erase… Continue reading 2019–more baking and more stories

Year in Review: Books that changed my life this year

2018 was a year of great discovery and personal development. Or at least, it was the year that I actually put things into action rather than just thinking about it. Like many people, I have this issue with "time." Not enough of them, that is. I probably make myself sound like the busiest businesswoman in… Continue reading Year in Review: Books that changed my life this year

Year in review: On learning to let things go

This is a first in a series of anecdotes I’m going to write about the year that was 2018. If you know me well, you'll know that I am a photography enthusiast.
