Living An Authentic Life

When deciding what to title today's Blog post, I changed my mind about six times. "'Living An Authentic Life' sounded too Oprah," I thought. But, truly, it's what felt best. So, the pardon the title if it feels too familiar. :) So how do we live an authentic life? How do we live a life just and true? I figure…

What Women Want

Let's start with Sarah Palin: wife, mother, governor, on the campaign trail for Vice President... Moose Lover! As a society, we were fascinated by her. She was the brunt of many Saturday Night Live jokes. Her story was splashed all over magazine covers as well as the six o'clock news. Not only had she achieved tremendous professional success, she obviously…

To Stay Or Not To Stay… For The Kids Sake

Hi Ladies, Today's post was supposed to be another topic that I have decided to save for next week. Instead, something that happened midday yesterday was the driving force for today's Blog. I was grabbing a salad for the road and on my way to my son's school to serve hot lunch to 650 students. Never one to skip a meal, I was waiting for my salad, when I bumped into…

Help, I’m Totally Frazzled!

I would like today's Blog to address a comment a friend of mine made to me the other day. It went something like this: "Erica, I have to tell you, I'm losing my patience.  I'm yelling at my kids a lot lately.  I can't remember the last time I sat on the floor with them to do a puzzle. I'm…

Calling out all mothers!! Although, I have to say, even if you're not a mom yet nor even thinking about it (wow, you're smart... just joking!!), this has gotta sound entertaining. As mothers, we wear many hats depending on the day, the situation, or simply, our moods. Parent, friend, disciplinarian, good cop, bad cop, nice mom, mean mom, and the list goes…

Change… The Only Constant

Hi All, Yesterday was a busy and fun day. Massage was wonderful. Lunch was yummy. Disney on Ice was... well... fun for the kids! The evening didn't end successfully with my two year old barfing all over my bed after coughing for three straight hours. Exhausted this morning! But back to the Blog. Today is a very gloomy day in Montreal, so…

Sometimes Straying From the Path Ain’t So Bad After All!

By Guest Blogger Kelly Duffy “When you go through life, so sure of where you’re headin’, and you wind up lost, it’s the best thing that could have happened” -Brad Paisley, “Find Your Self” You may find this odd, but I wasn’t really a Brad Paisley fan until this morning.
