How To Help A Friend Who Is an Addict

One of the most devastating things that can happen to any family is substance abuse in any form. Anything in excess is never good for anyone. That could be anything from too much food, exercise, alcohol or even shopping. Addictive behaviors can turn relationships upside down for those who…

Preparing My Man for his Next Woman

***Disclaimer-adult content and perhaps a bit lengthy but full of nice juicy bits.

Ok so...I am fresh out of my wonderful Yoga class in a beautiful garden in Bedstuy Brooklyn. I am sweating bullets, hot as heck but I am feeling…

Choosing Poor Behavior out of Habit

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…

#MomGoals

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…

Finding friend time again

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.…

What to talk about after the sex talk

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…

The friends we drift away from

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.)…

They may drive you crazy, but you might live longer

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.…

8 Ways to Help Your Breastfeeding Partner

Even if your breastfeeding partner is able to stay at home with baby the job is still a very demanding one. In fact, being a stay at home mom has it's own challenges when it comes to socialization and adult interaction. 



It's hard having a tiny life completely reliant on you for nutrients. Babies in the first few weeks of their life are ferocious eaters, and it isn't odd to have a baby that seems to be latched on 247.…

Forgiveness In All Areas of Your Life

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…

"N" is for Nurture...simple and sweet

N is for Nurture

Valentine's Day Honesty

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…

The Value of Relationships

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…

Breaking up is hard for everyone

I know that every marriage is different. I listen to girl talk. I hear from friends who let their husbands handle all the finances, and those that act as the family accountant. I hear from moms who think their husbands don't spend enough time with the kids and those that are happy with their amount of free time away from the family. I hear from women who joke about murdering their spouses several times a week and those that are careful to…

First comes love, then comes moving in, then maybe marriage

Like many couples, my husband and I moved in together before getting married. And we actually lived together for more than a decade before saying our vows. We wanted to be sure about our choice to remain together. (Absolutely sure.) And to this day, I am glad that we put in all that time before we tied the knot. We know each other on every level and I believe that it made the "hard" years of marriage (the first year after saying "I do,"…

5 Reasons To Have a Tea Party

5 Reasons to Have a Tea Party With Your Daughter

My daughter loooves tea parties! She'll have tea parties with all the animals in her room, including any of her brother's toys that may have somehow gotten mixed in. Illy will throw parties for her brothers or bring me little cups of "tea" and "soup" (lukewarm water) while I'm working. She's even gotten the whole family to sit on the floor in the living room for a tea…

When friendships change

I do not know where my childhood best friend is. Her name is Nicole, and she and I were best friends from first through fifth grade. We were Girl Scouts together, we would play games in her basement, and we had countless sleepovers at each other's houses. When I moved to South Carolina, we wrote each other letters, but eventually that tapered off and we lost touch.…

How many selfies could you take in one day?

When my son was born, my Mom asked me to take a picture of him every day. So I did. (Thanks, Mom!) Obviously, I took more than one picture of him most days, but I can say that I have a record of my son every day of the first year of his life - that's 365 photos of his daily changes from being a day old to being a year old.…

Can your marriage stand on one leg?

I am a flamingo. I am standing perfectly still in flamingo pose with one foot firmly rooted to the ground and the other balanced away from my body. I breathe in. I breathe out. I am calm and pleased by my ability to stay so centered.…
