Mother’s Day ‘Mom Thrive Guide’ With A Giveaway!

Sunday is the day we honor mothers everywhere. For some, Mother’s Day is a day to rejoice and celebrate motherhood. For others, it’s a sad and difficult day, as many will celebrate this Mother’s Day without a mom. I feel so grateful to be lovingly sandwiched in the middle.  A delicious and devoted mom on top, and two wonderful sons who are never too busy…

When Your Life Gets Turned Upside Down

By Guest Blogger Lisa Blobstein At 35, I had it all. I had a newborn son and was married to the most incredible man I had ever met. I had great friends, family and a job I loved.

I Don’t Think I Want a Baby – Is That OK?

By Guest Blogger Rebecca Longman Throughout my teens and most of my 20’s, I prayed it wouldn't happen-- I took the proper precaution to make sure it wouldn't happen. At 27, I thought I was ready, then the break-up came and I was glad it hadn’t happened. Then at 30, in a stable and happy relationship, I wondered if it would ever happen.…

Sorry I've dropped off the face of the blog for a week. Hello, I'm back! I rested my fingertips and my brain the past few days and returned home late last night after celebrating my first-ever destination wedding and my 40th birthday in Turks and Caicos. It was a Caribbean sun, fun, and family time vacation, and it was divine. I surrendered to daily…

40 Things I’ve Learned In 40 Years

Well, I turn 40 today. Not quite sure when THAT happened?! I'm pretty sure it was just yesterday that I kissed my husband for the first time at 20 years old while watching two girls make out at Beaver Lake (a park here in Montreal). But clearly, it's NOT yesterday. Not even close. I've got more wrinkles, more cellulite, and honeys... more wisdom. So…

On Turning 50: Regrets, Dreams and Possibilities

By Guest Blogger Dana Kobernick As I slide into my fiftieth birthday with all the grace and composure of a train half off the rails, I can’t help but go through the typical machinations of a woman approaching – or past – middle age. Until now, I have led a fulfilled life. I recognize my fortune that manifests primarily through…

Does Your Husband Have A Work Spouse?

TGIF Chiquitas!! That means 20/20 tonight, after Friday night dinner with friends (and double hockey). I LOVE Friday nights. We've been a little heavy around here lately, and as you know, I always like to switch things up, so I came across a funny topic that I hoped would soften the mood today. A friend of mine recently asked me if I…

@Oprah on Barbara Walters’ 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014

I gotta admit, I'm a sucker for this show. Barbara Walters celebrated the 21st anniversary of her 10 Most Fascinating People special last night.

Domestic Violence #WhyIStayed #WhyILeft

After TMZ released the video yesterday of Baltimore Ravens football player Ray Rice knocking his then girlfriend (now wife) unconscious with one single punch, victims of abuse began to come forward and tell their powerful stories in 140 characters or less: #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft. Their hashtags gave us a horrific but honest view into the dangerous and tragic world of…
