On March 5th, 1971 I was born. Yep, I just turned 40. All year I was talking about the big birthday bash we were going to have at our house – it was going to be quite the event! But the closer my birthday got, the more the idea of throwing a party became one big headache. So I started saying that I would have a party when the weather improved. When friends and family asked, I…Continue

You know you're a crazy photographer when you stumble upon deserted railroad tracks and drag your family out there for an impromptu photoshoot.

Although spring officially sprung a while ago, we still get flurries that accumulate on top of our mud and melting snow. Overall, it's still a fairly wintery world out there in Vermont, although the temperatures are rising. It's been warm enough to bring our kids outside, but there's nowhere to bring them! Anywhere that is plowed is a parking lot or other potential hazard. Anywhere that isn't knee-deep in snow is ankle-deep in mud. But the sun is smiling its yellowy…

I was recently given an amazing opportunity from my friends at Disney Canada to attend the Disney Social Media Moms conference in Orlando. I jumped at the chance – by March, who doesn’t need to get a hit of that happy drug the Big Mouse deals out?
The added bonus was that this conference is a family getaway….well, for a family of four, anyway. Once I got a friend to agree to come…Continue

Today is the last Joy of Luck assignment, and it ends on a high note. We are to consider (and photograph) our own personal rainbow, in a metaphorical sense. What will bring me luck in the future? What blessings do I have to look forward to? That one was pretty easy for me, since my family is such a blessing and I can only consider myself lucky for having the people and babies in my life that I…

This weekend I was initiated into Vermonterhood. I did something that every true blue Vermonter considers just another day, yet I had never done it before. Our family, plus Nana and Papa and some friends of theirs, went to a sugar house and tried some fresh maple syrup, literally fresh out of the tap.
We're defrosting up here in the extreme northeast. Up here in the boondocks. We are quickly approaching the fifth season of the year. Oh? You thought there were only four seasons? Oh, right. You must live somewhere other than Vermont. I use to think there was only four, too.
Welcome to Mud Season.

With the rare exception, I do a load or two of laundry everyday… every. Single. Day. We are a family of 5, with two of those five being teenage boys… (teenage boys will wear three shirts in one day, but the same pair of pants for a week) which I am sure makes it clearer why I am engaged in a…

As a mom, especially an overprotective mom, I have that need to shield my teens from anything and everything that can hurt them. Broken glass, boxes of twinkies, school bullies, drunken drivers, burning buildings, pubescent boys who only have their penis and girls' boobies on the brain. But how, how do I shield my teenage girls from their father?
How do I…

When I started this blog recently, my first post was about the quest that many women go on in order to "have it all."
What exactly does that mean?
Well, for the most part, it means that http://bit.ly/gsU2EN

Monday was an unexpected snow day. After a weekend of rain and temperatures reminiscent of spring, winter came back to rear its very ugly head. So ugly it destroyed our grill with one gigantic piece of ice leaping off the roof onto our deck. (Must have done something to do deserve that kind of karma, Grillmaster…
