Bone Marrow Donation Update

So, back in my 2012 catch up post, I quickly glanced over a big thing I did back around Thanksgiving.  I donated bone marrow - or more accurately, PBSC - Peripheral Blood Stem Cells to a leukemia patient who needed a transplant.  I originally got registered with the National Bone Marrow Registry almost 10 years […]

My Little Model

A few months ago, my dear friend, Sara, asked if Annabelle would be a model for her kid’s clothing line called Grass & Clovers, and of course, I said yes.  Sara’s clothes are the cutest things - they are simple shirts and decor but have delicate, hand sewn designs made of vintage fabrics.  All the […]

Legoland Discovery Center - Westchester

When I heard LEGOLAND was opening in Westchester, I was so excited because my little Noah is a huge Lego fan.  He may not be able to read yet, but he can build cars, rockets and Transformers from Legos and I will continue to nurture this love of building and engineering no matter how many tiny […]

A very unnerving day…

Today was one of those days that completely freaked me out and I just don’t know how to comprehend it. Luckily it wasn’t an immediate issue, but it sent up those mommy flags that I just can’t put away.
After picking up Noah and his friends from pre-school today, I got a call from James and […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome 2013!

Is it really 2013 already? If anyone is still reading this blog, I apologize for the last 2 years… I can come up with some arguably reasonable excuses for my lack of communication, but it’s just sad. I knew coming back to the US would change me a lot and keeping up with the blog […]

Happy Birthday America!

It has been four years since the last time I celebrated the 4th of July on American soil, so I definitely did not want to miss out on it this year.  My last 4th of July celebration happened at Main Beach in East Hampton, NY… a wonderfully warm day spent playing in the sand and […]

Usually, when a couple decides to buy a house, they spend months visiting potential new cities or looking at houses and patiently wait for that perfect house to  become available. You know, that dream house that you can picture your kids growing up in and you growing […]
