All That Glitters…

“I’m flying to Miami for the It Girl Shopping Expo, and I want you to meet me there,” my daughter, the senior marketing manager for Elayda Skincare, announced over the phone without so much as a greeting. “It will be a working vacation, but it will be glamorous and fun…there will be something there for […]

The Next Best Thing to Being There

Several times a week, I take a walk with my son through the streets of Boston on his way to work. We start out at 9:00 am. This time of year he wears his down jacket and gloves. I fuss at him for not wearing a hat. I’m in my warm, blue robe. We stop […]

The Best Lumpy Potatoes…Ever

We were finally there.
