{Live} Mindful Living | What I Scored On Black Friday And What I’m Buying This Cyber Monday

November 28, 2011 in All Posts, Parenting

You could say we experienced the antithesis of Black Friday the day after Thanksgiving.Instead of mauling other shoppers for a discounted Christmas sweater, we spent three quiet hours at a local wat and emerged with the equivalent of five shopping bags less of unnecessary mental, emotional and spiritual garbage than the worthless material goods we would have […]

September 1, 2011 in All Posts, Laugh, Parenting

Yesterday was Jane’s first day of school. At 2 years, 7 months, my little baby went off to preschool. I thought there would be tears on somebody’s part:  mine or hers.  Or possibly both.

February 15, 2011 in All Posts, Parenting

Love, Chloe, that is.  I inexplicably fell head over heels for Chloe’s new fragrance the second I swiped the Nordstrom catalog sample on my naked, eager wrist. It’s a strange feeling for me since I usually take the time to develop a relationship with a new scent before committing.  I tend to go for the […]
