Save the Duck

You know those simple memories you have from childhood? Seemingly insignificant moments that stick with you? For me, it was going to the local park and watching the ducks with my dad, sometimes talking, sometimes just being. I look back on it with fondness all these years later.  That feeling is something I hope I am recreating for Liam. Read more

Social Tees

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time at one of my favorite rescues, Social Tees, meeting some pups awaiting their forever families.  They were all so sweet, and each one wonderful in their own unique way.  I wish I could take them all home, but my hands are quite full already with my 5 furbabies!  I have included details on 3 pups up for adoption below in hopes they will find their families soon – Read on, they could be the companion you have been needing!

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
