Bake It Happen: Pink Pumpkins, Sweet Treats and Raising Money for Breast Cancer Awareness

It’s October – there’s a chill in the air, the leaves are starting to change, pumpkin flavored everything has invaded every food establishment and grocery aisle – and it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Last year, my friend Shari Brooks and her sister, launched a brand new campaign that took a very different approach to raising money […]

Bake it Happen for Breast Cancer Research

I recently had a discussion with my daughters about friendship.  It’s hard to explain to an 11 year-old that friendships ebb and flow, and more importantly, that if you keep your heart open you will continue to make new friends throughout your life. Some of your friends will stick.  Some won’t.  And that’s okay.  It […]

I haven’t written in a while, but not because I’ve been lolling around eating bon bons.  (What are bon bons anyway?)  My daughters celebrated their 9th birthday last week.  I can’t begin to wrap my brain around how my daughters could possibly be nine years-old, but in the world of Girldom nine means a real […]

I am one of THOSE PTA moms – and Proud of It!

In the last few months I’ve read several blog posts railing against the PTA moms at various schools.  The complaints are usually the same – they’re overbearing and pushy, busy bodies trying to vie for the principal or teacher’s attention, do-gooders who get off on making the rest of the parents feel bad.  Yeah, yeah.  […]
