Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'm not the biggest fan of the summer. I don't like being covered in sweat when I get to work. I don't like being devoured by evil hungry mosquitoes. And I despise flying beetles sneaking into my home getting caught in my ceiling fan's down draft and landing in my sleeping face. I also don't [...]

Love this song. It takes me back to my youth when the family, and I mean all of them, got together for every holiday from Mother's Day to New Years Day. Times have changed and we've been through (and are going through) some stuff. But the love remains. This is how we used to do [...]

Since the beginning of October I have been listening to Christmas music. All kinds too - from Country and Metal to Soul and Hip-Hop and everything in between. It's really absurd and now that I see the words in black and white, it's also embarrassing. I need an ugly sweater and some felt reindeer antlers [...]

Usually around this time of the year I am excited about rolling into the fun of the fall, and the awesomeness of the Holiday Season in NYC. We already purchased Dev's Halloween costume, and we're trying to decide on which orchard we will be picking apples and pumpkins at this year. Fall really is [...]
