Crunchy…

There is something about granola that gets me every time. I’m into the crunch. I rarely buy it pre-made because many brands pack their recipes with high fructose corn syrup and sugar. One exception to the rule is the granola made by Healing Home Foods which I discovered at Green & Tonic. The granola is made in small… read more

Giving-hearth

We all know giving is good. But I must admit that sometimes giving back can be a daunting task. How do we know that the cause we are giving back to is worth the investment? How can we be certain that the monies will get to those who deserve it? Well, one good way to… read more

Mommy: A Memoir

the-end-old-movie

Once upon a time there was a mommy who was very tired on Sunday because she had a big weekend. Sadly that mommy’s husband had to leave for a 4 day business trip that very same night at 7:30pm. That was unfortunate. On Monday morning when that mommy woke up with her two children at… read more

Cancer kills. It causes pain. And sadly it can be genetic. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to lose a parent to cancer and live with the fear that you could face the same fate. You can let that fear paralyze you or you can take it, look it in the face, and… read more

Face Time

  With a new school year upon us Mama has to make sure she gets her face on in time for carpool. I keep it very simple during the day. Elixir, BB Cream, under-eye concealer, chubby stick, and blush. For nighttime I like to jazz it up a little bit more while still sticking to a… read more

Favorite Fall Bootie

c600x385

The wedge’s moment seems to have passed. Stilettos are wholly inappropriate for kicking around town. This small chunky heel on the other hand is ideal. Brownish-grey is showing up all over the editorial world – and on the feet is no exception. I adore everything Isabel Marant does but $650 for a boot that will… read more

Sometimes a deep hole is chiseled into our hearts. A hole that is filled with anguish, sadness, fear, and very deep grief. The hole remains. We ruminate and ponder – seeking answers. Eventually we cover the surface to protect the wound and allow it to heal. The hole underneath remains. The outer space is covered… read more
