In My Professional Opinion twisted the arm of our friend and fellow makeup artist extraordinaire, Jose Teneza, until he agreed to guest blog! See, Jose is one of the most knowledgeable artists this Pro knows and he works at...well, we can't tell you, but it is a very large, cosmetic retailer and we knew that he would have the inside "scoop" on natural moisturizers. Check out his review...

Michelle Obama’s White House garden is inspiring. The First Lady’s agricultural endeavor both introduces and reminds people to get closer to the land; to conserve Earth’s precious resources; and the importance of growing their own healthy food. For some people this is feasible; for others, both time and natural space interfere with this green-thumb movement. There are many accessible sites to help start your own garden, whether it’s an herb garden in your window sill, planting a fruit tree, or… Continue

I'm currently writing an article for Mother's Day about mamas who don't have their own mothers around. It's fascinating to me that people can raise children when their own moms are not retired, living locally, emotionally involved or alive. So, you have that happy read to look forward to. In the meantime it got me thinking about another valuable player in the extended family - the childless aunt.
I had a childless aunt who we tragically lost to breast cancer a dozen years ago… Continue

WARNING: If you love your PTA, this might not be an enjoyable post for you. (Of course, this is only my opinion/experience - I'm sure your PTA is just faaaab.)
Five years ago, when my oldest started kindergarten, I was the epitome of enthusiastic, stars-in-the-eyes, get-involved moms. I didn't have that growing up, and envied the kids who did (my mom worked full time and overtime, and didn't speak much English, and I had no dad). My kids were going to see me as a regular presence at… Continue

So many of my friends think I am one or more of the following: a certified nut crunching granola; a penny pinching miser; or a miracle worker. The truth is I am none of the above really. I do care deeply about our planet, as I only get one trip on it and I need to leave it in better condition than I found it for my children. I do try to use my dollar wisely and politically but I don't live excrutiatingly just to see how far I can go on a cent at the expense of comfort for myself or my family.… Continue

It's true, and I'll say it again, A Divided Home is a Happy Home.
Remember awhile back when I talked about cheap therapy, and then I ranted and raved about marriage and family therapist, Shelby Riley? (If you're new, you can read it here
) Well, I decided to put into practice one of her e-books, 10 Weeks to Increased Intimacy and Connection.
It was… Continue

Do you ever feel that you've lost yourself? You've lost the person that you were before you had kids? That those dreams and hopes and hobbies are kind of pushed to the side. Or to the back, or that they've disappeared?
Why does that happen?
It's not good. Not good at all.
I believe our children need to see that we are people too. They need to see that we have dreams, and they especially need to see that we are taking steps to make those dreams come… Continue

Taylor's favorite phrase to say to me, is: "And then what did you think?" Well that, and the phrase: "No Mom, I don't want to do that right now. Here's the plan, I'll do what I want to do first and then I'll do what you want me to do. Okay Mom?"
Which brings me to my first point.
I used to think
I was patient until I had kids. But now...
Well, I find it's my struggle every single day. I have to BREATHE. Sometimes very… Continue

I wanted to share this dream that my friend Bethany had a couple of years ago. It seems like a lot of people I know and love are going through some really hard times right now. And this story keeps coming to mind. It has meant so much to me time and time again, and I hold on to the image every time life gets hard.…

My peonies are coming up, and I am ready to have it be warm, sunny, and full of life again. Winter was much to harsh in Michigan this year. Between our dismal economy and our even more dismal environment, it's been rough. Where I live in the Mid Michigan area, there are some towns with 18-20% unemployment and the temperatures were around that at the highest level most of the winter. Pretty depressing, eh? So spring is very welcome… Continue

The age old question does money indeed buy happiness? Over the last few days I have encountered a few grumpy cantankerous old men right here in Franklin and I am wondering if this rudeness is turning into a trend. Yes, Franklin, MA, my lovely town, the town voted one of the best 10 town's in the USA to live by Family Circle magazine. The town that we moved to 4 years ago to escape the rude miserable people who live in Boston. If you live in Boston, I don't mean you, it's the other people. In my… Continue
