It’s freezing in the DC area. One more week of these arctic winds and I swear you’ll only find my smoke trail to Fiji. For this reason I was excited when I received the invitation to attend Goldfish Swim School’s grand openin...

Last week a local 13-year-old named Mathias Giordano lost his battle with Cancer. His loss has really hit many people hard. I ask how many times does this have to happen before we all stand up and advocate for these children.  
When bad things happen to children, we need to do more than cry and pray. We need to advocate and take action. We need to honor the lives of the children who are suffering by standing up.

I was published on The Washington Post!
Yesterday, an essay I wrote was published on The Washington Post. This is huge for me. I grew up dreaming of seeing my byline in The Washington Post. This has always been a goal of mine. Even though my piece is only running on their online publication, I am still extremely proud of myself. This is all part of my journey and dream to publish a book and make a living from my words.

So, sometimes I run away, but never for long. I always come back to the truth that is right in front of me. Life is good and I am blessed. The love I feel for my children and husband is what gives me the strength and courage to admit I have dreams in the first place. This will never change – whether we live at the beach, in the city or yes, even on a farm.

Parenting children in different stages of childhood can be difficult. For me, the most important thing is to take the time to notice the little things.
I am parenting different stages of childhood. Yet, in many ways nothing changes. You are always teaching. You are always guiding. Then you are forced to let go. To observe from a distance and realize that they are independent beacons of hope and light that are constantly in a state of change and growth.

Please take a moment to read this post and then send your card of support to this amazing warrior.
I am not sure why some stories impact me more than others, but over the years there have a been more than a few. Right now, the person taking residence in my heart is Mathias Giordano, a 13-year-old Leesburg, Va., boy who is battling cancer. People are being asked to show their support of Mathias by sending him cards and messages of love.

It’s easy to remember holidays or birthdays or other special occasions, but it is regular days like this one that make up a lifetime of memories. It’s moments like these that need to be noticed and treasured. I am grateful for this ordinary day. An ordinary day to remember.
