I needed to See This…


An Autumn Sabbath

Rick and I typically like to observe the Sabbath once a week as a gift from God.  A day to Stop, Rest, Delight and Contemplate. Last Saturday we spent it in the heart of Brooklyn, Grand Army Plaza. It was a beautiful Saturday morning.  The sun was shining, it wasn’t too hot or too cold.  […]

Nursery University

Last night I couldn’t sleep.  So I decided I would watch a movie on my iPhone via the Netflix App.  There was a movie listed on my Instant Queue that sparked my interest so I decided to watch it.  I thought to myself, “Self, this shouldn’t be to heavy a movie to watch at 12:30am.”  […]

Nursery Rhyme Confessions: Exhaustion!

WARNING: This is not one of those happy go lucky blog posts. It’s life as it happened.  I just wanted to share a little brief blog-vent. Thanks for listening. 🙂 Karis is a full blown toddler.  She must be!  She has all of the symptoms: Toddling (walking clumsily) all around the house, touching everything within […]

Hi Ho… Hi Ho… It’s Off to Work I Go… Kinda!

So Karis is a little over 13 months old now.  And life, after the party, has resumed.  Oh boy has it resumed.  She’s walking and her teeth (all two of them) have made their grand entrance.  Motherhood is in full swing for me and I still don’t know what I’m doing. 🙂 Before Karis was […]

Happy Birthday Karis!

On May 10th, 2009 9:26am Karis Rose came into this world and changed our world forever.  What a blessing she has been this past year.  And I can’t believe how quickly this year has past.  It’s all going so fast.  I have to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy the here and now.  […]

A Return to Normalcy…

A friend of mine who just became a new mom recently stated that she was “desperately seeking a return to normalcy.” Karis is 10 months old now and the first thing that popped into my head was…. “SO AM I…!!!” I was totally empathizing with her. Don’t get me wrong. I love Karis, and ironically, […]

Reflections on Christmas

What a wonderful Christmas I had! Family, Friends, and Food! This Christmas Eve we spent at my parents house and we opened our Secret Santa Gifts from one another and ate some delicious Arroz con Pollo! And then in the evening Richard, Karis, my parents and I attended New Life Fellowships Christmas Eve Candlelight service. […]
