Politics: Vote

For the most part I try not to get too political over here on the blog. I wholeheartedly believe that each person is entitled to their own opinion, and to their individual voting rights. What’s most important to me is that we all are as educated as possible about the choices we have, and that… read more

Great Brand: Bombas

If you know and like brands like Tom’s and Warby Parker, then you should get to know Bombas. It is a relatively new brand that focuses on being socially conscious. While Toms gives away shoes to those in need, and Warby Parker gives glasses and eye exams, Bombas gives socks. You don’t think about it… read more

Introducing Milly!

I’m pretty sure we were at capacity over here in these parts. 3 kids, new house (that needs a lot of work!), part-time job for me, full time job for hubby, etc. BUT we all had this nagging little voice inside our heads saying, “It’s time for a puppy.” In fact two members of our… read more

Great Business: Saltwater Brewery

  Over at our house we have big hearts for the creatures of the sea. I was blown away by this idea of edible packaging materials for six packs of beer. As far as I am concerned SaltWater Brewery has my business. Can you imagine how great it would be if big business beer companies got on… read more

Great Business: Mike’s Organic Delivery

One of the first local businesses I featured on the blog here was Mike’s Organic Delivery. It remains one of my favorite here in our area. As a mother of three, I love anyone who is trying to make my food-buying life easier, and my children’s food more healthy. Mike has recently added a whole… read more

Great Business: Seedsheets

Guess what time of year it is????? It’s veggie garden time of year. Since the blog began, I have been writing about herbs, veggies, fruits and planting. It has become a real passion of mine in recent years. In fact in the last 3 years there have been two summers where our family barely had… read more

Great Business: Zen Bronze

Since both my parents have been diagnosed with melanoma I have started to think long and hard about the time I spend in the sun and how I choose to protect myself from sun damage. I wear an array of sunscreens (every day on my face!) that range from an spf of 30 all the… read more

Great Business: Tiecrafters

My husband wears a suit to work every day so he has acquired quite a collection of ties over the years. One of my favorites is a vintage Hermès with windmills on it (my husband’s father was Dutch) that I bought off of Ebay when we were first dating. Needless to say  – after years… read more

Party Time!

Something about the spring season feels very festive. There are weddings, end-of-school parties, birthday celebrations, bar and bat mitzvahs, and simple summer soirées to be planned. Party planning is not my forté so I love the idea of bringing on a professional who can really help to make even the smallest event a special one…. read more
