A Letter to My College Bound Baby

August 26, 2014

Dear baby girl,

You are done with what society has ‘required’ you to do. What’s left is what YOU require yourself to do.

You Can Keep the Mom Guilt... I Don't Have It

How to Get The Picture-Perfect Family Holiday Photo

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
