Walt Disney World New Fantasyland and Granting Holiday Wishes with GM Northeast – A Very Merry Giveaway!

Last week I attended the Grand Opening of the New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World.  I hadn’t been to Walt Disney World in probably 20 years or so.  My daughters had never been.  I still remember walking through Cinderella Castle the very first time – I was 6 years old – and seeing Fantasyland spread […]

My Cinderella Story

Today is my fourteenth anniversary.  My husband and I have been married for 14 years, together for 19 years, and met each other almost 21 years ago.  It sounds crazy when I think about it in terms of numbers and actual time. We stopped buying anniversary gifts for each other years ago.  We’d rather spend […]

Pregnant Road Trip – Swollen Feet and a Really Good Audiobook…

One Post, A New Friend and A Look Back on Jewish Italy

Two years ago today I was in Pitigliano Italy, site of one of the oldest Jewish towns in Italy – though of course not anymore.  I blogged every day of our month-long stay in Italy and Pitigliano was particularly hard to write about.  I thought about this post recently because when I wrote it I […]

Puerto Rico – Beach, Rainforest and An Earthquake Too (plus a Snapfish Giveaway!)

Every year we go on a huge family vacation with my husband’s entire family.  At this point there are 16 of us, in 3 different states on opposite ends of the country all trying to coordinate and agree on a common meeting point.  The only non-negotiable sticking point for my sun worshipping in-laws is that […]
