How to manage a toddler and an infant

Now that I’ve got my hands full with Min and Gilli, I’ve been asking a lot of moms how they transitioned from one kiddo to two. I’ve gotten some really great advice (along with a few jarring reality checks!) over the last few weeks, and recently, my friend JoAnne of Sweet Ginger Mama shared with me some practical tips of… Read more →

Book cover ideas, Marie Kondo, and boys

So, I think we have the cover art for my book! There’s still some discussion happening between my publisher, editor and myself, but you know how sometimes you have an idea, and then you come across lots of other ideas, but you still keep going back to your first idea?

Every winter, after weeks of being snowed… Read more →

Over the weekend, The Boss and I drove up to Connecticut to visit The Boss’s family and went strawberry picking at a small farm just a few minutes from my in-laws’ house with my MIL, sister-in-law and Little Lamb. The last time I went berry picking was with MIL a few years ago. This time it was Min’s turn to… Read more →

I remember watching a segment on the news years ago about how the Internet was revolutionizing the way people shopped.
