I am a paid brand ambassador for International Delight, but all opinions are my own. Shh! Don’t tell my friends in Connecticut, but my kids get an extra week […]

Psst! Tomorrow is November. That’s a little fact that Paige — my November baby — has been pointing out for weeks. She can’t wait for her birthday. I can’t wait for the holiday season, and everything that comes with it. Still, it’s hard to believe that we’re entering November. Where did the year go?!? That […]

This quick and easy recipe for a Banana Coconut Cream Pie Smoothie was created for Yoplait. All opinions are my own. Will and Paige are very independent. Most school days, Will rises with his alarm, gets his own breakfast and then gets himself ready for school. Paige usually wakes up just before Will gets on […]

This recipe was sponsored by International Delight. All opinions are, as always, my own. There’s something about a cold blended coffee drink, isn’t there? Ever since I first sipped one — probably 15 years ago — I’ve been wild for them. They just make hot summer days a little brighter … don’t they? Back when […]

Six weeks, four days. That’s a mere 46 days — or 1,104 hours, if you prefer. Though it’s probably slightly less than 1,104 hours. What’s the countdown? It’s the number of days until the school year ends and the kids and I can officially — really and truly — head off the shoreline for a […]

Once when I was a tween living in Poughkeepsie, New York, my family took a bike ride around our neighborhood with another family we were friends with. It was a cool spring day, and the blossoms were on the trees. Our friends had recently moved into the neighborhood, and — for me — it was […]

Stress-Free Thanksgiving: Cranberry Citrus Martini (and Don’t Forget the Drinks)

Confession: I’ve been known to carefully plan holiday dinners but totally forget about drinks. Usually it’s my husband who clues into the conspicuous absence of beverages. He asks me if I bought anything to serve for drinks. And my response? Usually something like “Well, there’s water!” He’s not fond of that answer. Don’t worry — […]

On Friday, I rushed into my kids’ school to pick them up and passed a friend with her kids leaving. “We’ll be playing outside for awhile,” she said. I responded with something like “Fun!” thinking that I just couldn’t. In my head, I thought about I had to get back to work. I couldn’t lose […]
