Soul Friends

By definition 'soul food' is a noun, defined by Merriam-Webster as: "food (as chitterlings, ham hocks and collard greens) traditionally eaten by southern black Americans." With origins dating back to the mid-sixties, it is safe to say that its definition may have morphed a bit in the way of mainstream thinking.

Door Number Three

I'm going to 'out' myself just a bit in the way of 'guilty pleasure' of television viewing. As I prepared to pen this piece I realize I may lose a few readers as a result of this admission. I'm taking that risk.

Waisting Time

I'm looking for my waist. Have you seen my waist? Maybe it's at Cahoots, Moss Rose, Firenze's? It's definitely not at Fitness Plus or Koru Yoga Studio or maybe ... It is.

What’s In A Name

I am the parent of 'those' kids. You know the ones. The kids who name a gold fish 'Goldie', a stuffed dog 'Puppy' or continue to call a doll 'Bitty Baby' until it has aged in years beyond a toddler.

In For The Treat

As the mommy of the group it only seems fitting that I pen the piece about the ever so popular Halloween Holiday. Our staff hosts a number of parents, as well as grandparents whom are proving to create all new memories and milestones for staffers.
