I Hate My Electrolux Refrigerator

I Hate My Electrolux Refrigerator  First thing I looked at when we were shopping for a home was the kitchen. I spend a good deal of time in there and wanted to be sure it was updated and clean. There was no time for renovations as I was pregnant with Valentina while we were house […]

New Hair, Dancing, and My Birthday

New Hair, Dancing, and My Birthday Another busy weekend here! Weather was still pretty warm when Saturday morning came. I had a 9 a.m. hair appointment to continue my transformation from brunette to blonde. I love a early appointment – good hair for the rest of the day! The stylist who manages my hair is […]



#MomsNightOut at Board and Brush

#MomsNightOut at Board and Brush After a week of the stomach flu it was so awesome to have had this moms night out planned and on the calendar. I had even prepaid so blowing it off wasn’t really an option. When Saturday evening came – in stead of changing into my pj’s at 630 pm […]



Snowed In! Winter Storm Niko

Snowed In! Winter Storm Niko Boy oh boy! Winter is here now. We had a major blizzard yesterday – winter storm Niko blasted the Northeast all day yesterday dumping heavy snow.

A Lifestyle Change: Going Gluten Free I think it was just this past September that I decided to totally cut gluten from my diet. My husband had cut gluten because his gut was all out of whack after a round of antibiotics for a virus. At least, that is the conclusion his primary care doc […]

What a Day! Dealing with our First Serious Wound

What a Day! Dealing with our First Serious Wound  Yesterday started out like any other day. Got the kids ready, got Gabriella off on the bus and then loaded Valentina and Anthony into the van for swim lessons. Typically I like to leave earlier just in case traffic is a mess. So when we arrived […]



Growing My Village
