Spiritual Practice

On December 10th, 2011, I completed my training as a Reiki Master. Before leaving class, our teacher, the queen of Reiki, Libby Barnett encouraged us to choose a practice and put it into action for the following 21 days. “Let’s see,” Libby said.  “21 days would bring us to…” “December 31st,” I called out. “What a way […]

Guest Post: The Pig and Me author, Lindsay Frucci

How about we start out the new year with a Book Giveaway? I’m really excited to introduce you to my friend and fellow writer, Lindsay Frucci. Lindsay is the author of The Pig and Me, in which she chronicles the journey of creating a low-fat browmie mix that would ultimately pull her family out of financial […]

Simple Gifts

I was blessed with an early gift for Christmas. It wasn’t wrapped in shiny paper or tied with a bow. It was a simple answer to a simple question. I’d asked it casually, resisting the urge to cross my fingers behind my back. “Wanna to go to yoga class with me?” She twisted a clump […]

Being Me Part II: The Book Update

So… The Big Apple After telling you all about the Smoothie Explosion I was prepared to share the outcome of that story and update you on the progress of the book. I planned to remind you of the loooooooooooong journey the book has been on. How it all began with the birth of a tiny baby, and the fleeting […]

Being Me (aka – The Smoothie Explosion)

Remember when I told you about my trip to New York City? I’d had my hair straightened? Turns out, I was on my way to meet my literary agent. The literary agent I had hoped for from the get go. The literary agent who’d written about consciousness and authenticity on her website. The literary agent I’d […]

An Announcement

Tomorrow we celebrate Thanksgiving. Sunday, we celebrate Andie’s eleventh birthday! Yesterday, I received an email from a woman who’d been born at 28 weeks, thirty-six years ago!  Her parents had been told there was little hope their baby would live.  Today, she’s earning a nursing degree and hopes to work in the NICU, helping preemie […]

The Breath of Life (or Growing a Sequoia in NH)

Eleven years ago I gave birth to a baby who needed machines to breathe. Which is why I can’t wait to tell you this story. It all began with a tree… It was a silly purchase, really.  The nursery was having an end of season sale. It was 75% off, but still, we should have […]

Dear Pediatrician

I wonder if you remember me? We met almost eleven years ago? I was that one with the really preemie baby. Remember? She had an ostomy bag and a scar on her back from a heart/lung surgery? I carried her in a soft pink fleece and was a little shaky having just brought her home from […]
