Interior Design: Henry & Co. Design

featured

When we bought our home I was giddy over her “great bones”. This was a house that (thankfully) would need no structural work. That being said we knew right away it would need a complete facelift on the interior design front. As I have mentioned before, interior design is not my passion or talent. I am… read more

See: Cyber Seniors

featured

This documentary called Cyber-Seniors looks absolutely precious! I love the idea of bridging the gap between the oldest living generation and our tech-addicted younger one. There is something so funny and refreshing about the candid admissions made by these seniors about not knowing how to use current technology. The trailer (attached) is well worth watching… read more

Great Business: Candyshop Photography

featured

If you have been following along for some time you know that I am obsessed with photos. Especially those of children. By far one of my favorite photographers in the area is Charisse Czaja. Her photos are stunning! Add that pure talent on top of her being a spectacular person (Superhero Among us ALERT!) and I’m… read more

When I started writing this blog almost 3 years ago it was with the intention to shine a light onto all the good and strong and brave that is happening around us. While I thought these stories would be a gift to my readers I never envisioned what a gift I was giving myself as… read more

featured

I’m having a real tree moment. For 6 years we lived on a small piece of property with not one tree on it. A large rhododendron was the extent of our arboreal existence. Since moving to a bigger piece of land with many huge trees on the property I have been completely inspired by them…. read more

Food: Healthy Chicken Soup

My five year old rarely makes food requests other than grilled cheese, so when she asked for chicken soup I nearly ran out the door to buy the ingredients. This recipe is very healthy and relatively easy. The best part is that you can really throw in any leftover pasta and a whole variety of… read more

Fashion: I want…

featured

Since buying our home I have been on a fashion shopping freeze. Unless you are a chair, a roll of wallpaper, a sconce or a lamp – you should not be beckoning me to buy you. Nothing but things for the home for the foreseeable future for this gal! That being said I have been… read more

Best Books: The Jolly Postman

featured

  When we moved I found many old boxes of children’s books that my mom gave to me years ago when I had my first child. The Jolly Postman by Allan and Janet Ahlberg was in the boxes and I forgot what a treat this little book is. Now published in a bigger version with… read more

Art: Zaria Forman

featured

I came across the exceptional artist Zaria Forman in only a way that the heavens above could manifest. Her father is a neuro ophthalmologist. (Yes, brilliance runs in the family.) I went to see Dr. Forman when my son JT, at 6 weeks old, presented with what we feared was a serious eye problem. While we waited… read more
