In the absence of spring flowers (we are presently buried under a foot of snow in the Northeast) these beautiful floral pieces by the artist Ann Carrington are a nice alternative. I’d love to see one of them nestled on a  book shelf in my library or even on a coffee table in our family… read more

Great Food: The Granola Bar

featured

If you are looking for me around 8:30am after drop off on most school days, you’ll find me sipping a super hot almond milk latté at The Granola Bar on the top of Greenwich Avenue. I was clued into this spot a year ago, but have selfishly kept it to myself until now. It is… read more

Fjord is located in a shopping area that is now known as “The Hub” in Cos Cob on East Putnam Avenue. With Greenwich… read more

Designer to Watch: Carmiña Roth

With so many illnesses and disasters happening in our world, it is all too easy for us to turn a blind eye to one epidemic while focusing on another. When I was in my teens and twenties the HIV/AIDS epidemic was regularly in the news. While the disease remains a very real issue in our… read more

Would you bring a coyote into your home?

I had no intention of blogging tonight but I stumbled upon this unbelievable text prank on Facebook. As I read it I literally was laughing out loud with tears rolling down my cheeks. Maybe it’s because I have done some slightly crazy animal stuff in my day, or that I just LOVE pranks, but this… read more

Great Business: Moda Operandi

I met Lauren Santo Domingo in my early twenties through mutual friends. From the start I always found Lauren to be thoughtful and friendly – someone who said hello to you at a party after meeting you just once. Even back then I could tell she was someone with a clear sense of purpose and… read more
