There are many days I roll out of bed, and I want to sell everything and move to a small coastal town in Italy near my family where everything is just simpler. Why do we as a culture put so much pressure on ourselves? We are like ants... moving from place to place with a mission, but that mission ge...

I am thrilled to add the second entry to our 'interviews with working moms' category. I had the pleasure of lunch and a great conversation with the very impressive Maria McCool. She is the mom of three as well as the co-owner of award winning Calista Salon and Spa in West C...
We all remember when we were that age. No one wants to stand out and be different in a negative light, especially when you are a teenager. Here is the stepwise approach to managing this common dermatologic annoyance.
Firstly, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure," as best stated...
Next week both of my daughters will be a plane ride away for the first time. If you follow this blog you know that my oldest is now a college graduate and my youngest is about to start her junior year. So it has been a while since both girls were living at home, but with one in Boston and one in NYC...
Let's go back in time first...spring and summer of 2020. The world changed and no-one knew what to expect. We were faced with a crisis we won't soon forget, and technically speaking, it's not completely resolved now...over two years later. It was a time of great loss for many in lots of different wa...

It hit me a few days ago when I was talking to a colleague at work about our career paths. He said "I have a history of severe depression. Why in the world did I pick a career where people are whining and complaining all the time?" (He is a former surgical Physician Assistant). He did go o...

5. Will this interfere with school and/or other activities?
One of my favorite desserts of all-time is crème brûlée. That first break through the flame-caramelized layer of sugar is so incredibly satisfying, as is that sweet vanilla bean taste. Years ago while gazing the spice section of a local market, a small packet of cooking lavender caugh...
I don't know what happened. As I've gotten older, I have less of a filter on my mouth. I also have more confidence and less patience. For example: I'm in a packed grocery store and the woman in front of me checking out is having a conversation with the cashier like she's at a local happy-hour, compl...
Wow...this is a topic I have been thinking to write about for a while now, but I wasn't sure where to begin. It is a HUGE topic with so many considerations and so many different opinions. All I can do is give my thoughts and opinions based on being the mom of two young adult daughters who are past t...
How many of us feel like this??
Pulled in nine million directions, we work all day, then come home and work some more. Cook, laundry, clean, taxi service to everywhere, and not to forget we are the endless money access mach...
The post-Covid era is now full of remote working employees. It started off as a way to isolate and socially distance, but employers have realized that the system works in many situations and it is cost-effective, especially with overhead costs like rent, insurance, and utilities. So if ...
