Living in the Moment

Living in the Moment

In high school, we had to take a survey that asked, “When will you be living your best life?” Childhood, high school, college, adult or retirement? But why is life broken down by stages? Wouldn’t it be better to live in the moment?

Making Friends in Your 30s

Making Friends in Your 30s

Making new friends is difficult at any age. Though, arguably, the older I get, the harder it becomes. No longer can I rely on a lucky class schedule or a gaggle of neighborhood kids when it comes to making connections. At a certain age, now, I actually kind of have to, you know, work for it (ugh).

Creating a Morning Routine

Creating a Morning Routine

I'm a huge fan of routine, and so are my kids. I’m not the most organized of moms, and I’m certainly not a very organized housewife. However, I do believe that my kids need routine, and so do I. Their routine is good for me. During the summer, our routine went out the...

Sending Our Daughter Off to College

"Good parents give their children roots and wings. Roots to know where home is, wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught to them." - Jonas Salk As we walk the path of parenting, I'm sure you've read or heard this quote many times. Lately, a version of this...

Masks at School

I can’t believe it's less than one month until kids are back in school. Summer break seems to fly by every year. On local parent forums, parents are excited about the planned return to full-time, face-to-face classes next month. Parents are engaging in the normal...

Accepting My Graying Hair

Accepting My Graying Hair

During COVID-19, John and I were very isolated. We only ventured out to the grocery store and drugstore. I think we survived rather well and made good use of Zooming with the grandkids and learning how to FaceTime. They were always very patient with me and gave me...

Learning How to Play Pickleball

Learning How to Play Pickleball

As I age, I have tried to keep active. Just keep moving. I play golf, go to the gym and play pickleball. The grandkids appreciate my efforts and ask often what I’m doing to keep active. I've told them story after story of my sporting past, which is non-existent. When...

Starting a Business During the Pandemic

Starting a Business During the Pandemic

This past year and a half has been interesting. Vaccinations have changed life dramatically. Being able to hug my grandkids with more gusto, probably much to their chagrin, since everyone has received their shots. Seeing book club friends for the first time in years...

Our Health Experts Weigh In…

Meet Our Authors

Mallory, Babies Blogger

Meet Mallory

Babies & Toddlers

In addition to the time I devote to being a mom, I also work full-time outside the home, which means my day is hardly ever as simple as nine to five. With an all-too-established schedule, as soon as I walk through the door, my day doesn’t end, but rather just begins. It’s a balancing act, especially with two children, but being a mom is one full-time job that I never want to quit!

K-12 & Teens

My husband and I have three kids. Our oldest is a freshman in high school, and our youngest is in second grade. Like most families, our calendar is color-coded with practices, games, school activities and concerts, and I cannot forget to add monthly professional meetings. Yet all of these bring me such joy. My heart is full watching our kids do what they love.

Nancy, Grandparents blogger

Meet Nancy

Grandkids & Grandparents

I have four grandchildren ages 14-17. In some ways, I’m a very typical grandma, always proud of everything the kids do and wanting to help support them in whatever way I can. In other ways, I’m not very typical. My goal as a blogger is to share my thoughts and experiences that I think are funny and meaningful as I adventure through grandmahood.
