Discussions about 50 Shades of Grey seem to be everywhere, ad nauseam. I have been wrestling whether or not to jump into the conversation but I decided I could no longer keep silent as I am passionate about helping people have better relationships and I think there are a few issues that haven’t been addressed yet (believe it or not!) ... so here goes.
First, I love the color Gray…Continue

This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…Continue

There are a lot of parents who would think that a ride to school, or watching an hour of TV with their kids would count as “quality” time and would be enough. With today's hectic lifestyle most parents lead, trying to be at two places at once, balancing between their jobs, caring for their children, doing the house chores, and so on, time has really become a precious commodity. A commodity that at some point will inevitably begin to elude each and…Continue

In my 20 months of being a mum, I have been found frequently banging my head against a wall asking – how can all us smart, savvy individuals be found stumbling into this state of motherhood as if someone got a stick and poked us in both eyes with it, and as if it hadn’t been…Continue
The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried. I’ve known my husband for quite some time. We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes. From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies. After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again. Needless to say life is funny. After 8 years we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…Continue

I am so disappointed in myself!
I started a blog in 2008 and found wonderful guidance through Mom Bloggers Club along with fantastic connections that created a few friendships that I still have to this day. Recently MBC posted "Spruce Up Your Blog In 10 Easy Steps". Really good tips and resources. One I definitely needed, since my blog has been around for so long, was the BrokenLinkCheck.com. When this service was finished with my free scan I was shocked at how many links I had to…Continue

A fascinating story.
About the book: If these old walls could talk, would you listen? When a house has a story to tell, historical events to relate and lives to share, it should be given a voice; especially when the house is French and possesses a certain “je ne sais quoi”.
“Through These Doors: the Manoir at Bout L’Abbé” tells of the German occupation of Normandy…

My daughter was born deaf and wears two cochlear implants. While the cochlear implants have changed her life, she is still considered deaf and relies on sign language when her batteries or if there is something wrong with her implants. It wasn’t unheard of my daughter going without an implant for several weeks when she only had one implant. We decided to get her a …Continue
Although it may be the holiday season, as far as presents go that doesn't mean a whole lot to Millennials. Like so many other issues, they have their own ideas about gift giving. Apparently what they want is cash, mostly to pay down college costs and other debt.
So much for the negative stereotype that those born between 1980 and 2000 are lazy and have a sense of entitlement. Millennials are laboring under a collective $1 trillion in debt from student loans and still…Continue

In my last post, I mentioned a guy I had been seeing who is in the Army, and I’m sure you’ve been waiting for the story. Let’s call this guy Captain America. I just want you to note that I always nickname guys that I date. I don’t start using…Continue

After I started getting myself together after my divorce, it came the time when I was ready to start dating again. It had been almost a decade since I was out there so I was obviously clueless. Luckily, I had great friends to support me. A girlfriend of mine convinced me to try online dating and gave me a few pointers before I jumped in. She warned me that…Continue
