Let the Holidays Begin with #XfinityMoms!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in partnership with Comcast; all opinions expressed are my own. 



What I love about being back in Boston is seeing how certain things have changed and that includes Comcast. I've shared before how I was a Comcast customer in my single-hood days of living in Boston post-college, and once I moved to NYC it was so hard to get used to a different provider. Now back in Boston with Comcast I'm loving all the new updates especially now that I have a family. 

Winner: Setu Yoga Community Prize Pack

It's the day before we leave for Charleston (at 5a.m. YIKES!), so I was up early to get my nails done promptly at 9a.m. when I saw this:

Jessamyn at WELL Summit was a highlight!

How timely since I was coming to the blog today to share the winner of my Setu giveawayI really enjoyed reading the comments of everyone who entered. It's so important to remember as each year begins to re-focus on health and wellness. 

So on to the winner:

Gift It: Nitro Circus' Signature Hyper Bicycles

Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own. 



One of my most favorite Christmas memories when I was a child was getting a bicycle. I can still remember it so clearly - it was hot pink and black. Despite the coldness of that Christmas day in Ohio, I ran out the door to give it a try and yes, I was quite the little diva on my bike.

Now as a mom with active 3 and 7 year olds who are constantly engaged in some manner of obstacle course and stunts around the house, when Nitro Circus reached out to surprise them with bikes in time for Christmas I knew they'd be excited. 

I was right!

It never fails: right after Thanksgiving I start seeing the question of whether to send holiday cards pop up in my feed and boy, does it cause a lot of stress!

Introducing Setu: An Inclusive Yoga Community (& a Giveaway!)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in partnership with Setu; all opinions expressed are my own.


When I looked over the session options at this year's W.E.L.L. Summit, morning yoga with Jessamyn Stanley jumped out at me. I've tried yoga a handful of times, but have always found that my mind wanders, and it's a bit intimidating as I'm not flexible. Like Not. At. All. 

So what made me sign up anyway?

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)...
