Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting

NYC has an unparalleled magic during the holiday season.  The 5th Avenue window displays are one of my favorite sights to take in this time of year when Cartier, Saks, Louis Vuitton, Bergdorfs, Tiffany’s and so many more high-end brands deck out their storefronts with holiday cheer (aka a LOT of lights).  This year we walked past them all on our way to witness the lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Plaza.

Parkinson’s Disease

When I say Parkinson’s Disease what comes to mind? Do you know anyone with Parkinson’s Disease?

Two years ago my dad was diagnosed with early stage Parkinson’s Disease. Although we noticed my dad moved a little slower, thought a little slower and had a slight tremor, we thought all would be fine by seeing a neurologist and starting a medication. Read more

Chalkola

I used to spend hours as a kid fostering my creativity through art.  I had entire shelves stocked with supplies and had so much fun playing with different mediums and hosting my own gallery shows for my parents at home.  I love passing on a passion for creativity to Liam, and Chalkola makes it easy with TONS of premium supplies at affordable prices.  

 

We recently spent a rainy day at home and had so much fun with our new Chalkola products.  We set up our table with snacks and supplies and spent hours in our PJ’s drawing, playing tic-tac-toe, and Liam even painted my portrait ? Read more

It’s Our Birthday!

It’s always been special to me that Li and I have our birthdays one day apart! (I was actually induced on my birthday but my stubborn boy decided he wanted his own day.)  Our birthdays looked much different this year amid the COVID-19 Stay at Home orders, but we still made it special and memorable.

Halloween 2019

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I like to go ALL out.  I decked out our front stoop with spiderwebs, skulls, pumpkins, gourds…all the good stuff I can conjure up!  Since we are the only ones on the block to go to this extent we get a lot of visitors leading up to Halloween, and we absolutely love it!

Italy 

As most of you know I recently returned from a 9-day tour of Italy.  There aren’t sufficient words to describe this country, but I will tell you it was a borderline life-changing experience!  Since it seems to be on most people’s bucket lists (and I am ready to go again anytime) I thought I’d let you in on all the details of where we went, what we ate and drank, the landmarks we visited, and more!
