Personalized Mother’s Day Gifts

Mother’s day is quickly approaching, May 14th if you didn’t already know. I struggle every year to buy for my parents. How do you buy a gift for someone that’s given you so much and on top of that has logged some miles and therefore already has a lot or been given a lot of […]

Wine Night – Blind Tasting

A few weeks ago I posted about organizing a Wine Club. I took my own tutorial and advice and put it to action, sort of… 😉 Per usual we were getting together on a week night, which I love (breaks up the week) but that means every thing gets thrown together very quickly. Here are […]

All Natural Egg Dying

Tis the season! I had the girls over to color eggs and they were very surprised to learn we would be coloring eggs with dyes made of cabbage, beets, and turmeric! Truth be told, it was the color palette derived from the all natural dyes that prompted me to make these versus using the good ol’ PAAS […]

Book Club: When Breath Becomes Air By: Paul Kalanithi

I first came across Paul’s story after reading his New York Times piece. His story immediately touched me. In the NYT piece, he or the editor, I don’t remember who, mentioned that he was writing a book. Fast forward to present; I was browsing the book section at the airport and came across Paul’s book.
