Ben got me a pack of Starbucks’ Instant Pumpkin Spice Latte, so I can have this bad boy at home. And I’m good.

Mondays. Glorious start to the work week. It took two hours today and I needed someone to approach me wearing their blue cornflower tie (Fight Club reference, I know) to put the cherry on the cake. Within two hours I have been peed on and then as I jumped back because a sudden warm flow still startles me, toddler cried. He used to laugh with delight when he got one of us. Now, I am afraid he is becoming self conscience about his potty moments. In the same time span, he used his limited…Continue

Do not judge me for what I am about to say. It may sound horrible, but when I was pregnant, before finding out the sex of our daughter, I really wanted to have a boy. I did. I am sorry. Of course I knew that I would…Continue

Most traditional business owners don’t have a full understanding of why it’s so important to have an efficient digital marketing strategy. As recently as the 1990s, it was not standard for all businesses to have a presence online, but today, an efficient digital marketing strategy has the power to make or break your business.
Think about it. How many mom-and-pop organizations in your area depend on the foot traffic that walks past their front door? For example, I grew up in…Continue

So I went a little all out for Ricky’s birthday this year. Given how difficult the spring and summer were – and the fact that we barely had any barbeques this year – I just wanted to have a fun little celebration for my little guy turning two.
So…I may have ordered some ponies. But just for the day! Not to keep. Much as my husband would like to have a pony in the backyard.
And yes, that’s true. A hobby farm is definitely on his bucket list. But that’s a story for another…Continue

Sorry I have been missing in action. It has been a crazy month. I just finished my latest projects for a customer.
She wanted a Rustic X Console table for a small area. This is what we came up with.
It turned out…Continue

Anyone who has had a new baby in their house knows about baby brain. The inability to remember things until you have already left the house or store, and the overall fog that takes over your entire thought process and makes coming up with an idea for dinner a Herculean task. I think that we also need to address Pregnancy Brain. As I sit here 20 weeks pregnant with my 5th child, I find that my grey matter has…Continue

During my daughters first year of life, I made the decision to step back from my old blog. I was struggling to manage new motherhood and this writing-on-the-Internet hobby I loved for so many years had become something I was failing to do—like all of the other things I was failing to do. So I quit.
But the siren song of blogging proved too much to resist.
By the time Emme was 20 months old, I was giving real thought to a new blog. I knew it was time to move on from A View from…Continue

I have a 12 year old. He is not quite a “teenager” but for all intents and purposes, he acts like one (which is not all bad by the way – I happen to very much enjoy teenagers). I am deeply aware that I am firmly entrenched in early adolescence with my boy. Yesterday morning, he…Continue

Except for a Halloween display and its use in Thanksgiving pies, pumpkin is rarely served in the US. On the other hand, Italians, who grow a great deal of pumpkins, serve it in a number of ways. Cucurbitaceae, the genus that includes pumpkins, squashes and edible gourds, has nourished people for centuries.
Of all of Italy's gastronomically diverse 20 regions, none utilizes the pumpkin…Continue

As my Birth Day month soon draws to a close I wanted to sit for a moment and recap to myself what I thought were lessons I had learned this year. In the past just before my Birth Day arrives I review myself and my year and I give myself a grade.
Did I accomplish what I set out to do? Did I stick to my plans? How did I handle changes? Did I learn anything new? Did I help others? Did I make new friends and did I close any chapters in my life that needed…Continue

Lessons from Star Trek I apply to being a parent of a child with Autism
I have been a Star Trek fan since it went into syndication in the late 1960’s-early 1970’s. I remember watching it from when I was about four years old and have never stopped. Those days were exciting…Continue
