Dearest Friends, As I mentioned in my previous blog post, at this point written weeks ago, this fall has been a time of transition for our family.  When we moved to New Hampshire six years ago, we fell in love with a small Waldorf School on top of a hill and knew it was the […]

“Preemie” Review and Giveaway!

I’ve had the privilege of meeting so many wonderful people through my book and blog! My latest new friend is Trish, an amazing NICU nurse and creator NICU Central, who recently surprised me with this review of Preemie!  What an honor!  Thank you, Trish! And if any of you haven’t read Preemie, or would like a copy […]


I haven’t had much time to write over the past few weeks because this fall the kids have started at a new school. It’s been a HUGE transition. When time allows, I want to write more about this change and the process we went through to get to this point, but in the meantime, I watched […]

An Interview with My Boy

Sometimes I write over on the website, Preemie Babies 101. Last week, I posted an interview I did with Tucker, asking him about his experience as the big brother to a preemie. HIs answers were so clear, so honest, so dear, that I just had to share the interview over here with you. I’m including […]


Lee took this photo last week on the morning of my 46th birthday. We were in Lake Placid, NY, vacationing with my entire clan. A big, celebratory dinner was planned, but as I do every year, I longed for some quiet, reflective, soul-nourishing time. Lee set his watch alarm early – 6:30 am – and […]

Summer Inspiration

This summer, I’m treating myself to an online writing/photography course. The class is called Unraveling: Ways of Seeing Myself, and taught by the wonderful, Susannah Conway, with whom I took my first online course, Blogging from the Heart, earlier this year. Our first Unraveling assignment was to think about our feet. Susannah encouraged us students, […]

Follow-Up on My Boy/Man

I thought it was fitting after publishing yesterday’s post about my boy growing up, that when I arrived to pick him up at work in the afternoon he was all excited to show me what he’d accomplished. I was a bit surprised when we walked right past the chicken coop he’d cleaned, the holes he’d […]

Observations on Little Ones

My sister’s kids came down from Vermont to stay with us for a few days. They’re nine and six, just as mine were only a few short years ago.  Yet somehow, as I’ve aged and adapted along with mine, I’ve forgotten all the sweet, little things about little ones. Like how no matter how late […]

Before My Eyes

Yesterday he was one, and then he was five, soon eight, then ten, then twelve. Today he’s fourteen, turning fifteen in a month.  And all along, so much more little boy than man; his talks of someday fanciful and improbable. And then six months ago, 3 inches and 11 pounds overnight. Suddenly the boy who […]

To Go Easy

Ahhhh, Sunday morning. And it finally feels like summer here in the North East. Although more rain is due to arrive, I’ll take this morning’s sunshine and the inspiration that arrived with it. I’m reading Yes, Chef, the memoir of Ethiopian born, Swedish adopted, Marcus Samuelsson, which has me inspired in the kitchen.  This morning I’m baking […]
