Years ago, I was divorced, overworked, stressed and exhausted. My career in the legal field was not what I imagined. I was no Erin Brockovich, traipsing around the city investigating a case that would impact thousands of lives. Nor was I working to  right the wrongs committed against countless citizens across the United States. No, [...]

Life, Life Lessons, New Year Life, Life Lessons, New Year

With the year coming to a close,  I wanted to share 3 life lessons to take into the new year.  I have to admit this past year has come with quite a few blessing and problems. Sometimes, the problems seemed to outweigh the blessings. With 4 oral surgeries, my son's school accident - Tween now [...]

Food, Hope & Love Delivered In a Box #MealsPerHour Thumbnail Food, Hope & Love Delivered In a Box #MealsPerHour Thumbnail

Over the past few weeks, as a sponsored Ambassador for Toyota and Food Bank For New York City’s Meals Per Hour project, I’ve seen hard work and dedication at its finest.

When I was approached to work with MoonWalk in America on this sponsored post, I could not say no. My Aunt died of breast cancer. We couldn't do anything to save her.

While working with Toyota and Food Bank For New York City, as a sponsored Meals Per Hour Ambassador, I was given a bird’s eye view of Sandy’s destruction and its aftermath. It was as if we were viewing homes made of straw and they could not withstand the Big Bad Wolf. But, this was no [...]

I've made many mistakes in my life. Some, I wish I could take back. Yet two changed my life forever and gave me my biggest blessings, my sons. Today, I will not focus on those errors, or even who I selected as the fathers. Today, I will forget the former things; I will not dwell [...]

This week I met gratitude face to face. In the middle of a chaotic week, I learned I had more to offer when I had nothing to give. Like most women, I am constantly juggling my time to accomplish as much as possible in a 24 hour day. I make to do lists, trying to squeeze in [...]

How Do You Define Yourself? Thumbnail How Do You Define Yourself? Thumbnail

How do you define yourself? Are you a Mom Blogger, Latina Blogger, Christian Blogger, African American Blogger, Green Blogger, Tech Blogger, etc? When I started my blog, I did not want to be labeled. I had too many labels already. I was a mother, sister, aunt, student, employee, foodie, gardener, crafter, painter and so much more. Yet each label [...]

This has been a crazy month. My debit card was stolen and my account cleaned out, I forgot to return two rented tuxs and had to pay an exorbitant amount of money, and one of my best friends was in a horrible bus accident. That last one put everything into perspective. All else faded once [...]
