Today you made me a mom

Posted by Christine on December 9, 2011 in Kids, relationships

December 9, 2011 5:28 pm Dear Sean, Six years ago today, you came into my world. Prior to your arrival, I had many roles. I was a daughter, a sister, a cousin, an aunt and a friend. When you arrived on that very cold December – it was 17 degrees when we were driving to [...]

9.11 ~ Ten years later

Posted by Christine on September 11, 2011 in relationships

A lot changes in one decade. For me, I divorced, moved back from New Jersey, met and married the love of my life and had two children. My life couldn’t look more different from the outside. Instead of living in a 600 square foot walk up, where at the top of my street I could [...]

Posted by Christine on August 22, 2011 in Kids, relationships

Maybe my nose is more sensitive or maybe for whatever reason my brain just seems to associate memories more with smell than one of my other senses.

Year-End Teacher Gift

Posted by Christine on May 25, 2011 in craft, Kids, relationships

We have adored Sean’s teacher this year. She was the perfect fit for him. Her son plays baseball and is a catcher for his school team. Apparently they have actual conversations about sports together – Sean and his teacher. I volunteered to be room mom and really enjoyed it. For the end of year, I [...]

A Phone Call is Worth a Million Emails

Posted by Christine on April 30, 2011 in relationships

For the last couple of months, I have been writing a white paper for a customer. It is a project that I normally would steer away from, but I like this person and they would need me to write some success stories in the future, something I like doing. We started off with an interview [...]
