Just Got Home

Lately the kids have been waking up early, they kind of take turns, and coming to our bed, although we have a big bed, they are big kids, today that is how the day started, way too early.  Luckily we had a lot of fun plans ahead, including a welcome back picnic at their school.  Then I dropped them off …

Devising Devices

The other day someone kept on swerving closely into my lane when I was driving, when I got a close look, her eyes were not on the road at all, they were on her phone.  I know how hard it is, and although there are laws, people I know have been caught and got tickets, but everybody still does it. …

In the High of Life

This picture was taken last Friday at my photo shoot, I am so excited to get the prints, full body shots, I feel like they really captured me.  I am grateful that my gift in this life is to be fully present, I notice each moment as it unfolds, and am in awe how everything is connected and how things really …

Integrity the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness. “he is known to be a man of integrity” synonyms: honesty, probity, rectitude, honor, …

We played hooky today

Thank you to my fellow Jews who are loud and proud

  I feel so grateful to live in this crazy world, of all types of types, of agreeing to disagree, and having the opportunity to stand up for myself, my rights, my people, my beliefs, and how I live my life.  I feel so proud of my fellow Jews for doing the same, we have to speak up, make our …

I just want some peace

Peace inside myself Luckily this is something that I possess, and know how to find, but sometimes my buttons are pushed, and the monster comes out.  Yoga has helped so much to keep me calm, have better reactions, and find my happy place.  For me the key is to keep balance in everything in my life, from eating right, and …
