There are many things I took for granted before having children–namely, showering, peeing unaccompanied, having a moment to think, and eating in restaurants. Though my twins are two-and-a-half years old, it feels like it has been eighty-four years since I’ve been able to sit in a restaurant and enjoy a meal during daylight hours, which […]
The holidays are over and frankly, we’re all just a little exhausted. While December is a month that can be full of some wonderful time with family and friends, it can also be draining for everyone – particularly if you are a Mom. Perhaps your home is one of those magical ones where all members […]

I adore the holidays. The magic, the twinkling lights, the sweaters. Who in Scottsdale doesn’t love getting out their riding boots and pretending it’s cold enough to wear them? My love for Christmas begins to wane by mid-December. That’s when the pressure gets to me. How can I possibly be a chef, a party hostess, […]
