Bill Cosby once said fatherhood is pretending the gift you love most is soap on a rope. As a dad, I can relate. I’ve received a few less-than-stellar gifts over the years, such as a Chico and the Man DVD, a ceramic car (made in China), and toe socks.
I love everything about the holidays: the decorating, the music, the food, and yes, the gift giving. I mean I really, really love the gift giving.
The holiday season is off to a fantastic start, and the busyness of the season is really kicking in! During the holidays, I focus on making sure my family is enjoying each moment, but like many moms, I often forget to consider my own desires.
The holidays are coming quickly and while I find it easy to buy for family members, they are always asking me what I want. Whether it be little goodies for the stocking, or a token on each of those eight nights of Hanukkah, I’ve created a list of goodies that I’d love to unwrap while sitting with a big hot cup of cocoa.
As life becomes more and more hectic, I have become more and more enticed by the beauty of meditation. The challenge, as always, is in getting starting and finding the time in your schedule to give yourself this space and room to breathe.

When I hear a tune on the radio that I haven’t heard in years, it evokes potent memories. When I smell certain scents, they may remind me of anything from my grandmother to my favorite hotel. My Paris stories are always filled with smells: the patisserie on the corner, the open rotisserie pits at the farmer’s market, and one of Paris’ most wonderful hotels.
You probably took the Halloween decorations down as quickly as I did, ready to move on to the next holiday (Thanksgiving! And then is it Christmas? Or Hanukkah?). But before you pass on the pumpkins, let’s talk about the beauty of this fruit.
This fall, 20 bloggers participated in the Puritan’s Pride “One Small Change” campaign. Each made a commitment to change one little thing in their lives on the path to healthier living.
The holiday season is all about gathering as a family, making memories, and sharing meaningful moments with the ones we love — and let’s not forget, eating a delicious meal together! However, for all of this to happen, there’s much planning and hard work to be done.
