My May Mantras

– Posted in: featured

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” I may have recently mentioned the chat I had with my downstairs neighbor, a single mom in her 40s who had her beautiful baby boy over a year ago. It was a perfect spring day, [...]

Happy Friday! I hope everyone is as excited about the weekend as I am—I’ve been under mounds of work this week and haven’t come up for air too much so I’m looking forward to not sitting in front of the computer for a few days. Nice weather in the forecast is always a bonus, too [...]

"You're the kind of friend people feel they can confide in and trust in a crisis.” She was right, this friend of mine.

I have 13% battery life left on my MacBook and, [...]

Scattered thoughts from a scattered mind

On Easter Sunday, I watched children consume large amounts of sugar. They became bouncing balls of energy while I could barely move after four cookies and a bunny ear. At what age does our internal sugar switch start to malfunction? In a few weeks, my best friend and I will be flying to a random [...]

How we do Passover

– Posted in: featured

Funny things always seem to happen at my family’s Passover seder each year. Like the time my aunt got wasted, raised her glass, and gave a drunken salute to her sister’s ballz, or the unbelievably embarrassing time my parents played matchmaker with someone who not only lived on the opposite coast but was ten years [...]
