Normally I’m not big into the ribbons for awareness, but I also don’t feel super comfortable sharing difficult things, so I’m not going to be putting decals on my car. I think knowledge and awareness are absolutely crucial to getting more cures and more people involved in helping each other, but I’m pretty selective about what I share, and I think it’s better that way. Like, I don’t like telling people I have Celiac because I don’t like going through the questions…with…Continue

It's a busy time in our household this week. We're gearing up for the first day of school tomorrow and that means new teachers, new classmates, new school supplies and, of course, new shoes. It's become a tradition for our girls to get a new pair of Twinkle Toes in the beginning of every school year and this year was no exception. Thanks to the folks at …Continue

We survived the first week of homeschooling in our home. Since this is our first year of homeschooling, I've been on the hunt for anything and everything that may be useful to incorporate into the boys' daily learning. I use a mix of academic books, hands-on activities, and websites.
Each day I come across another website that has useful aspects. I figured, there…

In Italy, there are sugo and salsa. Sugo derives from succo (juices) and refers to pan drippings that come from cooking meat or from a rich meat-based sauce, such as, sugo alla Bolognese and thick vegetable sauces (which often go over pasta). A salsa is a semi-liquid raw or cooked sauce that's used as a condiment. It can go over pasta or used to season other dishes, for example, pesto alla…Continue

I was having a conversation the other day with my friend Tiffani about how we used to think – pre-kids – that we were soooo busy. And then we had children. And we can’t remember what we actually spent our time doing back in the “busy” days.
This isn’t a dig at people who don’t have kids. It’s just the truth about reality – it’s impossible to understand how constantly busy you can actually be until you have kids. You parents know what I’m talking about. Having kids magnifies everything…Continue

Then, suddenly, he's picking up the schedule for his junior year of high school. She's a grown woman with a child of her own. And you realize how quickly the years went by and how quickly the next few years will be gone.
You find yourself longing for one more...
One more time feeling the warmth of a small body snuggle in your lap.
One more tiny hand holding yours.
One more first day of school.
One more hot, weary day of watching little league…

The school year begins, I find myself looking back on my (ahem..) more youthful years when I had younger kids. As I reflect on the things I know I've gotten right, the things I could have done better, and the times I fell flat on my face as a mother - I find myself thinking about how I so often felt as if the whole world (especially other mothers) were looking at me and scoring me as a mom. And how,even though my kids are grown and mostly grown, and one even has a little one of her…Continue

It's back to school time! Our schools started back to class today. There's just something about this time of year. I've always enjoyed it, even back when I was the one going back to school. Here's a few reasons why:…

My daughter Avery would have turned six this past July. In just a few days she’d be starting first grade. I would no doubt be frantically running around, completely occupied with last minute school shopping for frilly dresses and Queen Elsa lunchboxes and pretty pink bows to clip in her long brown hair.
But Avery was stillborn three weeks before her due date. My daughter’s ashes sit in an urn in my bedroom, a little silver container from Hobby Lobby that gets a kiss every morning and…Continue
