Can We Feel Gratitude and Grief?

by Stacey

Yesterday, an old friend (in time not age) shared a clip from Glennon Doyle’s instagram page. We are huge fans of Glennon Doyle and her wife Abby Wambach in our house but had somehow missed this particular video. What I love the most about Glennon is how she makes us think about hard things and […]

A Small Way to Support Indie Bookstores

by Stacey

I opened my email about an hour ago and noticed a trend. Small businesses and charities are running out of money. I read two emails back to back- one from Page 1 Books, an independent bookstore that I follow on-line and one from the 92nd Street Y. Neither of these emails took time to sugar […]

Listen to the Truth Tellers

by Stacey

From the time the girls were very little we have told them the truth. So much so that some people may have questioned our parenting decisions.

The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same

by Stacey

It feels like the world is changing, day by day and even, at times, minute by minute. At any given moment I can feel exhaustion, fear or acceptance. My mood is unpredictable as is my motivation level to accomplish anything. The bizarre thing about all of this though is that some aspects of our lives […]

Our Can Do List

by Stacey

Over the past year and a half, I have practiced yoga with Coach Jim Stroker, a retired Ridgewood wellness teacher and truthfully, a local legend. When Jim’s children were young, two of his three children were in a car accident that resulted in life-long challenges for them both. Jim took this challenge and turned it […]

A Rebel’s Thoughts For Wednesday

by Stacey

One of my favorite people to follow on Instagram is Hitha Palepu. She is a mom, an investor and a super smart person to follow. Her #5smartreads are part of my must-reads every day. All that said, she wrote something super simple in response to a question on her IG stories the other day that […]

Thoughts for Thursday: September 19

by Stacey

“What is my purpose in life?” I asked the void.  “What if I told you that you fulfilled it when you took an extra hour to talk to that kid about his life?” said the voice.  “Or when you paid for that young couple in the restaurant? Or when you saved that dog in traffic? […]
