For spring break this year we went to Morgan’s Rock on the West Coast of Nicaragua. As the person in charge of keeping her finger on the pulse of this family I sensed we were in need of a vacation where we got to return to our same beds every night. Our last few vacations had involved A LOT of moving and while that is ideal for seeing and experiencing destinations it is not ideal for completely unwinding…

Every February we look forward to Kid’s Night on Broadway where an adult buys a ticket and they get to tote along a kid for FREE. Very generous of Broadway and I applaud them for encouraging families to get out there and see shows together…

When I go to the theater I am always prepared to fall in love with the show.

A crappy duplex basement apartment in Chinatown with a curious lightbulb situation. Ninety minutes of almost every possible human trial and tribulation (seriously so many – check it out – I made a list below) packed into one Thanksgiving dinner served on paper plates. A family of four glued together with the power of unconditional love…

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it. People think pleasing God is all God cares about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.”
