So I Live in the Most Racist City in America

The Boston Statehouse on the morning of the election protest

When I first came to Boston I thought it'd just be for education then I'd bounce. Five years after graduation I left Boston for NYC and vowed never to return.

Well we know how that went...

Special Feature: 12 Days of Giving

I'm pausing from the chaos of holiday party prep to share a special feature today that I'm participating in hosted by Amanda, a fellow Boston-metro blogger at Prim and Propah. We first met at BlogHer in NYC back in 2015, and it's been wonderful becoming blogging buddies and meeting up with our little guys too (remember this EPIC toddler moment?!).



Today, please head over to her blog to see not only how you can give back to a fantastic charity, but also win a special something for yourself! You may even spot a cute little throwback family pic of the Lovebirds... And continue to follow for the remaining 5 days for more giving opportunities and prizes.

Thank you Amanda for including me!

Whoa December!


We went to a tree farm fully prepared to cut our tree, but this pre-cut one was our fave!

I looked up and this year is pretty much over. Welp!

Here's what's going on lately (in pictures)...

Four Chimneys Inn: A Weekend Away with My Sisters


Years ago at the age of 3 my parents took me to live in Connecticut for two years. Although we returned to Ohio, my earliest memories were formed in New England. Now as an adult I find that I have an affinity for its landscape and architecture, but not quite to the cold. 

It's worth it though.

Our Jr. Celtics Gameday Clinic Experience

Love and basketball. That's always been an underlying theme of my family - Mr. Lovebird and I met in college, and while he doesn't believe I played basketball in middle school and high school, he played all the way through to college and then professionally abroad.

Nia knows this is a part of her family history, and while we've gently tried to suggest basketball to her she's always been quite reluctant. 

That changed when she was invited to the Jr. Celtics Gameday Clinic.

Video Recap: Renewed and Refreshed at W.E.L.L. Summit 2017

Disclosure: I received a complimentary ticket to W.E.L.L. Summit; all opinions expressed are my own. 

With my sister Lauren
Two weeks ago I joined my sisters in NYC for the 3rd annual W.E.L.L. Summit. Last year's was quite emotional for me, and this year I was hurtling towards the Summit in a flurry of activity knowing that returning each year helps to center me and prepare me for the upcoming New Year.

Talking to Your Kids About God & Science

Disclosure: I received a copy of Indescribable to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own. 



I have a secret that causes Mr. Lovebird to poke fun at me: I am a space travel nerd. It used to be one of my main interests when I was in elementary school up until I saw the movie Space Camp which scared me SO bad that I decided that I'd rather be an archaeologist. I still have a hankering for Star Trek and all things outer space related! Once I had kids I wondered if their interests would mirror mine, and it's been a cautious path allowing them to find their own way. 

Then it happened.
