It’s less than a month before Pesach and instead of preparing for this exciting and labor-intensive holiday, I am preparing for some exciting and labor-intensive home-schooling. That’s right, school is out for at least the next five weeks, and my five kids are all home with me, and instead of buying matzah, I’m stocking up… Continue reading Silver Linings of COVID-19 Break
I have spent more of my life than I would like to admit sitting in front of a screen. Just look at this picture my daughter drew last year in her “all about Mommy” assignment: I mean, she could have drawn me playing music, baking, cooking, I mean, even “do laundry” would’ve been better in… Continue reading How I Kicked A Bad Social Media Habit
Anyone else feel like the beginning of 2019 was about fifteen years ago? I had to think really, really, reaalllllly hard to imagine what I was doing back then, twelve months ago. One of the best things about blogging is that I have a built-in reflection system where I can just look at what I… Continue reading 2019 Year End Review

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
Thanks everyone who commented on last week’s post. I’m going to give EVERYONE who commented a magnet. Send your addresses on over to me so I can send out of those cute little magnets! And have a great week!
I love round-ups and… I also really don’t love them. I’ve been included in them, which feels great! Who doesn’t love to be noticed? But I’ve also been excluded from others, and that hurts. It feels the opposite of great. And I know that in making this list, I am leaving out awesome amazing women… Continue reading Eleven Jewish Women You Should Follow
I enjoy memoirs. I like feeling like I’m getting a peek into someone else’s real life experiences. Typically, I most enjoy memoirs that are written by people from a drastically different part of the world, i.e., Iran, Nigeria, somewhere I’ve never bene and whose culture is wholly different than the one in which I grew… Continue reading Potential Titles For My Imaginary Memoir
