Spring is in the air here in Los Angeles, which means I’ve started clearing out the closets and making room for summer. Cleaning Weston’s room is always a bit nostalgic – it’s like digging into a time capsule. My heart aches just a little bit each time I pack away clothes that are too small […]


Every year around this time, I see photos pop up on my Facebook feed of people frolicking in fields of budding flowers and every year I swear I’m going to plan a day trip to do the very same. Not only is it an inexpensive way to spend quality time with the family in a gorgeous outdoor setting but […]


I often strive to be a better mom and sometimes when I have the patience, I attempt to be a better human. I try to find balance in a life that seems to have very little and I aim to be tolerant when my will has broken into millions of pieces and the only thing keeping […]


On the eve of my 3 year wedding anniversary, I wrote an article on my blog detailing my thoughts on marriage thus far. It occurred to me that others might find it useful and that it would be a good fit for the “marriage” section of Huffington Post. Only there isn’t a section for marriage on Huff Post. […]


Today marks my 3 year wedding anniversary and I’m feeling a bit conflicted. Marriage just isn’t quite what I thought it would be but then again I’m not sure I knew what to expect. All I know is that I’ve come to understand that it’s hard – really hard sometimes – to make two lives coexist in […]


People say it like it’s a bad thing, to lose oneself. I don’t see it as such. What does it mean anyway, to be lost? Obliviously there are both literal and philosophical interpretations. Physically it’s pretty difficult to misplace yourself – aren’t you always right there? But the answer to this question becomes less clear when we ask it from […]


I’m dedicating this Friday’s fashion roundup to one of my favorite Etsy stores, lovelane. I quickly fell in love with this store while sifting through Instagram.  I love the bold designs and the bright colors – it makes me wish these super hero costumes came in my size! These perfectly crafted capes also feed my love of […]

Want to know what drug use and parenthood have in common? I thought you might. If you were around in the 80s, you may remember the anti-narcotics commercial from the PDFA (Partnership for a Drug Free America) that was famous for coining the term, “This is Your Brain on Drugs”. The popular advertisement showed an […]


All I have to say is that my husband is so damn lucky we don’t have a girl. If we did, I would surely syphon our savings account in order to feed my moc addiction. Don’t misunderstand, I’ve seen some little dudes rock the moccasin look – I’m just not sure it works on my son. Moccasins […]

Fright Night Fashion 2

  I wish everyday were Halloween. I could stroll into work looking like the zombie I normally wake up looking like and no one would say a thing. I would eat endless amounts of candy and wear slutty outfits without being ridiculed. I wouldn’t have to dust my house because cobwebs are cool and I would finally be […]
