Christmas is my favorite time of year. I deck the house out in decorations and watch every Christmas movie ever made. My Mom has always made Christmas a big deal so we have many traditions that we do not skip. Ever! Once I got married and had kids I continued those childhood traditions and we […]

This is Caroline’s first Christmas, which is also the first Christmas for my side and Jason’s side of the family to have a grandchild/niece/nephew to shower with gifts. When deciding what to get our family members, among other gifts we decided to make something personal for each of Caroline’s grandparents, aunts and uncles. Growing up […]
It’s what we do anyway, without naming it anything special. Wrapping lights around poles and chopping down evergreens and paying much attention to peppermint. It’s booking flights, or preparing beds, or making menus. It’s noticing refugees wearing sandals in the snow and thinking of all those coats in the basement, or running out of sugar […]
I am a busy mother of three wonderful children, and like most mothers I strive to meet all their needs and show each of them the love and attention they deserve. Like most mothers, I fall short of this lofty goal, usually on a daily basis. Maggie, my youngest, is eleven months old and still […]
So here we are… its December! No matter what you and your family celebrate it is the season of giving. We give to our friends, our kiddos, and our favorite charities (if you haven’t done the last one you have until 12/31/14). I love this time of year! I love browsing my local stores and […]

After his first Christmas, I realized that I never needed to buy my son gifts. Not that I didn’t want to or couldn’t, there was just no point adding to the enormity of what he already received. On my side he was the first and only grandchild and on my husband’s side, his sisters already […]
When Maggie and Jessi met 18 years ago, in 1993, at high school freshman orientation they never knew the path their friendship would take. A friendship that has stood the test of time and has given a whole new meaning to the phrase “I would do anything for a friend”. The pair survived high school, […]
As the Holiday season fast approaches I find myself grasping at gift ideas. Allow me to backtrack a bit first. Last year, and every year before, my kids made out at Christmas. Presents upon presents. Our tree was lit alone by all of the colorful paper. We really went too far. Year after year we […]
With the holidays here in full swing, Jason, my husband, and I have had several conversations of new traditions we want to start with our 9 month old daughter, Caroline. For Thanksgiving, we took a huge leap and invited both sides of our family (each having its complications and drama) to our home for Thanksgiving […]
We had such a fabulous time at our Bloom 2014 event a few weeks ago! It was so fun to see so many new and expectant moms fill Kids City for a morning of pampering, resources and fun! Thank you to Mae Memories Photography for capturing all of the event images above and below! If […]

In addition to Christmas and the Persian New Year, and in an effort to be more multicultural and to help our daughter understand and love her heritage, we wanted to include Kwanzaa in our annual celebrations. We began amateurishly last year when she was three by getting a couple of books for her and reading […]
