In honor of Father’s Day, I want to write about the greatest Dad I’ve ever known; my husband. It was 13 months ago when he became a Father for the first time. If you’ve read my other posts, you know...
Whenever I post something personal on Facebook or Instagram, 95% of it has to do with our kids. But of that remaining 5%, I rarely give kudos to my husband. So in honor of Father’s Day, I’m putting the spotlight...
To my beautiful daughter, When you are old enough to read this, I would like you to know some things about your dad. I have known him since I was 14 and he was 15. I have gotten to see...

Birthdays, whether we like it or not, are a universally celebrated milestone. Jewish culture commemorates with a bar/bat mitzvah, Mexican culture with a quinceañera.  Korean custom does not disappoint with the first birthday or doljanchi (dol).

Hi sweet baby boy, I have so many thoughts and feelings about you and this special day that I’m not sure where to even start. First off, you should know that Mother’s Day 2015 will always be one of the most...

I have been known to watch the show Who Do You Think You Are? once or twice where celebrities take a look at their genealogy. I used to think it was odd that some of them would get so...
The perfect valentine

The Perfect Valentine?

  I have a confession to make - I love gifts.  In fact, I love gifts so much that when someone gets me a gift that doesn't make any sense I actually feel offended.  Now, before you stop reading and...
My husband and I dated for three years before we got engaged. I remember how dating him was so much fun. I planned every weekend with something new to do. We went to the aquarium, museum, wine tasting and...
A New Outlook

A New Outlook
