Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse

Top 10 Finds of January 2021

Holiday Boxes for Valentine’s Day

Have you seen my posts about Boxed Holiday?  I shared some pics online in December but never got around to posting them on here. I realized that most of us had our holiday decorations up by that point so I made a note to circle

Top Five Picture Book Recommendations

Since I posted my top book picks, I decided I needed some titles for kids too. As a former teacher, I know hundreds of titles and themes/lessons to accompany them. I've learned a lot along the way with my own kids too- but there's nothing

My Top 10 Books for 2020. Please buy them in stores!

When I published my Books, Books & More Books List in 2019, I had no idea that the devastation of 2020 was around the corner.  In late 2019, small independent book stores were likely hurting due to online competition. Looking back, I shared a list

Hike with Llamas at Clover Brooke Farm

If you're looking for unique outdoor experiences, look no further.  Clover Brooke Farm has a few of them.  They are outdoors and socially distant.   A group of Westchester women went up a couple of weeks ago and I had planned on going this past weekend

Westchester Woman Wednesday: Meet Stephanie Newman

Since October is National Bullying Prevention Month, I figured it would be the perfect time to address this very important topic as it relates to moms.  The topic of bullying is not new to anyone so I don't expect that I am sharing anything you
