Right now, as you read this, Nana and her boyfriend Burt are on a cruise around South America. In just 46, excuse me 48 months, (because Burt did correct my husband on this number on Thanksgiving lest anyone get it wrong) these two 85 year old love birds have been to China, New York, the Caribbean and up and down the coast at least a dozen times, just because. Spend 5 minutes with them and you’ll see that their love of all things life only gets greater each day. It’s inspiring, awesome, and frankly, makes me downright excited to know that life just gets better and better. I could go on and ...Read More
Ho, ho, ho. The Holidays are here and boy, could I used a heavily spiked beverage. While this holiday season is extra sweet because of all the wonderful things that have happened this year, like everyone else, it’s hard not to feel completely overwhelmed as the year winds down.

It means I have health. It means my body works. … for my home. The loud and unfriendly neighbors, the (always dirty looking) tile that I would not have chosen, the clutter that waxes and wanes, ebbs and flows ...Read More
On Saturday night, we celebrated my dad’s 60th birthday. It was a great party and a ton of fun (especially because I chopped 5 inches off my hair… maybe I’ll post a little pic. Hmm) ANYWAY, my brother Uncle G, Auntie “Addie,” and I were asked to say a little something. We all conspired and wanted to share some very hilarious (but probably too inappropriate stories for a party of colleagues and coworkers), so we opted to tell memorable stories that wouldn’t embarrass my dad for the rest of his life (and still sound funny after 3 Vodka Sodas in. Plus champagne.) My sister introduced us and ...Read More
