Maybe we need less likes and more love. Maybe we need less finger pointing at wrong-doing and more thumbs up for goodness. Maybe we need less posts and more peace. Maybe we need less opinion and more openness. Maybe we need less criticism and more creativity. Maybe we need less […]

Homemade Ricotta Cheese

I never imagined I’d be someone who owned and actually used cheesecloth, but here I am. I remember when I was about twenty-eight or twenty-nine years old and my friend, Valeria, who happened to be a Russian immigrant, told me that I should not waste money buying cheese and that […]

Have Kid- Will Travel

While most families are finally settling back into a school-dictated schedule, our family took a much-needed vacation. We were planning to go to Myrtle Beach with my mom to see family there, but Hurricane Dorian changed our plans. The funny thing is, the hotel canceled our reservations when they called […]

Opening and Embracing

Since about April, I’ve been praying? Communicating? Manifesting? What-have-you, this one thing: Let my work be good. And I’ve worked. I’ve worked really hard. I’ve worked so hard, in fact, that I’m looking forward to the quiet days of Autumn and Winter, when my body can rest and my mind […]

Regardless of your stance on vaccinations, it is imperative that we, as parents, speak up for our rights as parents, to make critical choices for our children, without government interference. Who is the government to make mandatory the […]

NOT Back to School Celebrations

If you’ve been shopping lately, I’m sure you’ve noticed all of the Back-to-School supplies in Target and Walmart and you have likely heard talk about the upcoming school year. Maybe your Facebook is already overloaded with school information, motivation for teachers and children, and advice for parents. I have certainly […]
