Hello hello! I’m so happy to announce that Melissa Amster is the winner of this Chanukah Giveaway. Thank you all for entering and thank you to the vendors who so generously donated their stuff! Have a Happy Chanukah everyone!
It has been a long long (very long) time since I did a giveaway, and I had the idea in my mind to maybe do a Chanukah giveaway this year, but as with many nice ideas in my busy life, it existed only in its potential state (meaning it wasn’t gonna happen). But thankfully Rivka… Continue reading Chanukah Giveaway!!
It snowed on November 1st. My Colorado friends will be unmoved by this because I know it snowed earlier there. I saw the posts of the little children and dedicated parents trick or treating in full winter gear. Kudos to you. We don’t do Halloween, but here in Cleveland it can definitely be snowy on… Continue reading Winter Is Coming
You all know that I love my bullet journal and all the potential lists I can create within those sweet, blank pages. As I was brainstorming new ways to maximize my efficiency and squeeze the absolutely most out of life, it occurred to me that my next birthday is a big one, and thus, perfect… Continue reading Bucket Lists and Pipe Dreams

There’s a counterintuitive sharpness of mind that I get when I’m not getting enough sleep. It’s like I’m extra perceptive and witty… Continue reading How To Survive Baby-Induced Sleep Deprivation
Not me! You might think I have energy because I keep posting events that I’m involved with or articles I’ve written, but I’m telling you that it is a facade! I’m really just napping most of the time. The frigid winter temperatures preclude any outdoor walking, my stalwart dedication to avoiding my elliptical and exercise… Continue reading Who Has Energy?
I’ve had the opportunity over the past couple years to tell my life story to a number of different audiences. It’s been a surreal experience, a privilege that I still don’t quite feel I deserve, but, hey, it keeps happening so I am going with it. Something that I noticed over the course of converting… Continue reading How We Change The Narrative
