The shortest month of the year has arrived, and we are less than 2 weeks away from what we observe as a day to display the love we have for our significant other. Department stores and retail establishments alike have already begun to market and advertise life sized teddy bears, giant boxes of chocolate…Continue

New York had it's first snow of the season yesterday and I must say I actually just embraced it. I spent the day working on some edits and drafts then was binge watching this new show I found on Netflix called The Killing omg a must see. The writing is fantastic! The story is continuously unfolding and capturing your attention second by second.
Great storytelling comes to life because of words . Being able to paint a vivid…Continue

My son will be turning 7-years old in December. I am guilty of looking at him sometimes and only seeing my precious little toddler who needs his mother to hold his hand in everything he does. I cringe when he swings too high on the swing set, for fear of him falling. My heart beats a bit faster when he charges across the Monkey Bars, what if he misses a step? What if he scrapes his knee? What if he bumps his head?…Continue

Mommy-hood sprung on you like flowers in the springtime, after the stork dropped a bundle of joy at your door and forgot to leave the dad. Devastating, but not the end of the world.
Here’s what you should know: Being single is not a disease. Being a single mom is not a handicap. To find yourself solely responsible for the health and well-being of a child can be…Continue

Have you been thinking about changing some habits but just can't seem to get started or when you start you can't stick to the new routines? Are you feeling like these are just things you are going to have to live with? I have been there and I can say that with some focus and mindful choices all is not lost.
Choosing poor behavior out of habit becomes natural because once you have been doing something for so long your mind plays tricks on you that…Continue

Motherhood – changes your perspective in general – your taste in food, music, color and even the TV programs that your binging on every weekend (that is..if you have time). Your Pinterest boards changed from Fashion to Kids and Parenting. Family becomes the vital part of motherhood. More often than not, mothers tend to prioritize family over themselves. So for today I want to share my list of #MomGoals that I wrote. To each her own. Goal setting can be a helpful, exciting, and a…Continue

I'm a little bummed. I got a text from a faraway friend who is going to be in my city next week, but it happens to be on a day I will not be around. It is one of those spontaneous meetings that just didn't work out and I am trying to take comfort in the fact that I will see her again in a few months for our twice-a-year gals getaway.…Continue

I am a big proponent of talking about sex in an age-appropriate way with your children. My son knows that he can ask me questions and he will get honest explanations. He knows the correct anatomical names for body parts, he understands how babies are born and he even understands the basics of how breast milk is made. As he gets older, we will…Continue

My son is at the peak of his imagination game years - the years in which your best friend is the person who will pretend to be a Pokemon with you and then join into a fight with Bowser that is filled with explosions. (Side note: Children would make excellent improv artists, except that they have difficulty taking suggestions from outsiders.)…Continue

I adore my son. I think he is brilliant, funny, quirky, sweet and kind. I love the way he wants to read on the couch next to me when he sees me reading, and the way he throws his whole body around mine in a big hug when I come home from work. He amazes me with how quickly he learns new concepts and the way he digs deep into subjects that fascinate him.…Continue

I've been spending a lot of time lately thinking about forgiveness and the impact it can have on your life and your relationships. Personally I've found that, while difficult, it can be so incredibly freeing! Looking back at the hardest times of my life, my turning point has always been when I've been able to let go…Continue

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?
If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse 3 days a year. (Valentine's…Continue

We have had many conversations in our home lately concerning relationships. How relationships are viewed today. How they were viewed when I was a teenager. How will we choose to walk in them. I’ve heard, more times than I can count, that the way teens do relationships today is different. They are free to talk to whomever they want, for as long as they want, without it carrying any weight as to the seriousness of the relationship. It doesn’t matter that they spend hours “texting” and…Continue
