park city… house hunting

We came correct… Mason and I flew in for soccer tryouts, she made the premier division 1 team! 

We saw 15 houses, made an offer on our first choice and now we are under contract! 

We ate at 510, had breakfast at Harvest, checked out Deer Valley, soaked in the sun in 80 degree heat, drank rosé, shopped on Main Street and had a blast with friends. 

So begins our next chapter, with amazing summers and some of the best skiing in North America. I’m spending the next few weeks packing up our home in Seattle, spending every day with my closest friends and making some killer memories with the kids! 

Here’s to taking risks, adventures and living life to the fullest! Cheers!

traveling with the people I love

We had an amazing week filled with sunshine, laughter, music, wine, friends, family… I live for our trips. The memories we make together and the experiences that shape our lives.

Off to plan our next trip!!! Stay tuned…

so begins a new decade…


Today begins a new decade and an opportunity for greater adventures. This will be the best decade yet filled with firsts and lasts.

In this decade, there will be two bat mitzvahs and one bar mitzvah, three high school graduations and four college graduations. We will watch as our five children become adults and make their own paths in life. We will travel to four continents this decade… filling our lives with experiences, cultures and cuisines that spark the imagination. 

I will mark almost thirty years of marriage with my love in this decade and for that I am so very grateful. To have experienced such remarkable love is a blessing. I run with open arms, grace, love and laughter into these next ten years. I am thankful for all that I have experienced and achieved so far… for the friendships, the laughter, the late nights, the adventures, the cocktails and this extraordinary life!

Cheers~

We went on a holiday for an entire month! No work. No computers. No blogging. Just family and kids, laughter and sun. I wish it would have never ended. Sometimes it takes something as simple as spending quality time with my brother and our kids to realize that I need to take a leap of faith and change my life, because my children deserve to feel this happy each and every day of their lives.

the simplest things

There have been so many wonderful moments these last few weeks that have really made me step back and appreciate all that we have. Not the materialistic possessions… not even the home that we live in, but each other. Our children, their health, their laughter, a single touch when our hands brush up against each other. Those are the moments that truly make you love every minute of your life, because if you don’t stop and look around and appreciate how special you are, how amazing it is that you are living this life, then you’re missing the point of what joy and gratitude really are all about.

My little girls are special, there’s no denying that they bring so much fun and warmth into my life, but there are instances when my little man and my husband are together that really are amazing. Like this morning when they secretly took photos of themselves for me to find. It really made my day. I can’t wait to see what else unfolds.
