Dearest Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day, Mom...I love you dearly and miss you greatly. I'll be thinking of you this weekend as we celebrate the love and wisdom of mothers. So many lessons, laughs, experiences...all of the things that make us the people we are today.

Whisker Wednesday

I was sitting in a chair in the living room editing a document the other day and caught a glimpse of the sun shining off Kate's whiskers. The camera is always nearby it seems.

And then, this.  She's saying "Oh, that's funny!"

My New Best Friend


After many weeks, if not months, of talking about getting a juicer, I finally got one: the Breville Compact. We happened to be walking through Bloomingdale's of all places, and saw it on sale. So, home it came. I wondered if it was going to be hard to clean, which would mean our friendship would be short lived. It isn't; it's super easy to clean. Even comes with the perfect brush to clean the screeny, chopper part. My other "juicer fear" was: would it be powerful enough? It is! It juices whole apples, carrots, cucumbers, even oranges and you don't have to peel them. The best part is the amazing juice - it's like drinking pure energy. This concoction was made with 1 cucumber, 1 apple, 1 orange, an inch of ginger, and 1 carrot. I drank half of this, then thought I'd snap a pic. The key is to drink it within about 5 minutes of juicing so you get all the enzymes. So delicious and highly recommended.
