The First Summer Destination: NYC

In the vein of “doing” more than “thinking” more, I thought no more than a millisecond to decide on grabbing my 15 year old son to drive East, as our first post-Covid, fully vaccinated trip. Our destinations: New York City and the beach. And staying at my mom’s in New Jersey

Like a Walk in the Park

Last month I mentioned that I was hoping to get my groove back with this new Spring season, and I’m happy to say that the groove is kind of on, in my garden and in my life.  In my garden beds, I planted the sugar snap peas, radishes, arugula and

It Begins Again

It’s hard to believe what a crazy year we all had. I’m waxing nostalgia on this Covid year because this week last year all of my son’s schools shut down. And now this week, they are opening 5 days a week again. Looking back on the last 12 months, I

The Natural Cycle of Things OR Why We Need Winter

Winter is back in my corner of the world. I woke up to see snow flurries, blanketing the neighborhood in a soft, small layer of white flakes. These days, when it snows, it tickles me with a bit of nostalgia and I welcome how it quiets things down. But is
