Ireland: home of castles, churches, cows, singalongs, leprechauns, shining rugged coastlines, guinness, green rolling hills, charming accents, and melt-in-your-mouth homemade brown bread. We spent the weekend in lovely Galway and while I was a bit sad heading home, I know how lucky I am to have had an entire weekend off mom-duty to chill/explore with the original Read More…

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was slightly less lovely than usual seeing that I had to give up tickets to Beyoncé with girlfriends to stay home and recover myself and my daughter from a vicious 24 hour bug. It probably worked out for all the other audience members seeing as I’d Read More…

Hey Sniffles, I know it’s February, the days are like 6 hours long, you’ve missed every class since November and officially diagnosed yourself with SAD. So what are you going to do?

Sap Alert. This year was a big one for all of you as it was for me. Everyone on this list gave birth to a child in 2013 or raised a child from baby to toddler. Babies grow faster in the first year of life than they do at any other time in their lives. Read More…
