Fresh Air

6 May 2020 | 4:27 pm Over the past weekend, parks in New Jersey finally opened after being close for about a month to stem the Covid-19 spread. It was perfect timing because it turned out to be an idyllic spring weekend, the kind where you want to languish lazily and not do much of anything. On Saturday, we spent hours […]

Quarantine Reading

29 April 2020 | 5:06 pm Like a lot of people, I have been spending quite a lot of time reading. First, it was my way of diverting attention away from the growing pandemic and the constant media alerts on my phone. Then, reading slowly became a habit, again.

Has Been Awhile…

20 April 2020 | 7:25 pm Over the last year, I have not had much of an urge to write or blog. I felt like there was already so much information and noise around us. Why do I need to add more to what is out there? Surely there is more than enough stuff on our social media feeds to keep […]

7 February 2019 | 1:30 pm Do you remember the year you turned 15? Did you feel socially awkward at the time or did you feel a little restless and impatient, waiting for life to happen? Was life full of infinite possibilities then with many doors yet unopened and numerous lives still untouched? I think about those moments now as Chiara, […]

24 January 2019 | 3:54 pm This time of the year is a little crazy at our house between the anticipation of the Super Bowl and the excitement around Academy Award nominations. I haven’t seen a lot of the nominated films yet but I’m hoping to see some in the next few weeks. Out of the movies I’ve seen so far, […]

Happy 2019

8 January 2019 | 6:21 pm I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything on this blog since September 2018! I wish I can say I was busier than in years past and use the craziness of everyday life as my excuse. But that wouldn’t be telling the truth. The reality is I started feeling that my life wasn’t worth writing about. […]

Bye, Summer 2018

6 September 2018 | 12:16 pm Just like that, we bid adieu to summer of 2018!  We started school this week with temps in the 90s.  It is so unseasonably hot that one of my daughters’ school already has early dismissal today.  But before we are totally submerged in the madness of another school year, I want make summer a little […]

East Meets West in Cyprus

8 August 2018 | 12:50 pm Hi friends!  I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted something on the blog.  Life just had a funny way of getting in the way each time I was about to post something.  Between Chiara’s and Ines’s graduation from middle school and grade school as well as end of school year recitals and sports championships, […]
