It’s hard to believe that 6 years ago, I started The Mommy-Files.  I was married at the time and had a family blog, but wanted a blog that was all my own.  A blog where I could talk about motherhood (both the struggles and joys), connect with friends and family, and share my experiences through […]...

I started blogging in July of 2008 and I still can’t believe it’s been almost 6 years!  What started out as a hobby has now turned into my full-time career and I still love it as much as I did when I started.  I never thought I would actually be able to make money from […]...

For about 7 years, I was a stay-at-home mom.  When I went through my divorce, I became a working mom.  Let me tell you – it was scary putting myself out in the workforce again.  Just the fact that I hadn’t worked in the field for 7 years immediately put me at a disadvantage as […]...

[…]...

For a long time (up until the scandal and this recent video interview), I really liked Martha Stewart.  I had even subscribed to her magazine at one point.  I wanted to be as crafty and creative as she appeared to be.  With the criminal charges against her, I have to admit that I looked to […]...

On Day 2 of my birthday trip in 2011, we had the opportunity to go to Universal Studios Hollywood and it was SO much fun!  We parked in the Universal Studios parking structure and hiked through Universal City Walk, which was filled with so many great stores and restaurants.  If you are ever in the […]...

On the way to drop the boys off at school yesterday, we were listening to a radio show and the topic was trick-or-treating.  I have fond memories of trick-or-treating as a little girl, probably up to my early teens.  Then after that, I was happy if we bought bags of candy as a family, sat […]...

This was a really cute video that was shared with me about a VERY enthusiastic and young conductor.  I think he may have a career in music!  What do you think?...
