My blog is an eclectic mix of all things lovely, delicious, refreshing and fun. This includes recipes, personal renewal opportunities, women's issues and family/parenting life.
Everything I Know I Wish I Learned in Kindergarten
When my oldest son started his first day of Kindergarten I, like many mothers, cried the minute he sat down in his classroom. He was a big boy now. He was entering a new phase in his life, yet I still remember the first day I held him in my arms as a newborn.
I Married An Irish Farmer
This time of year is all about the hustle and bustle. Time for a blog that serves as a nice little break. Take a peek into the life of an American city girl and her life with her handsome Irish Farmer husband. Imen McDonnell shares recipes, photos, Irish culture and family life on her blog, I Married An Irish Farmer.
Baby Meets City
Join me as I chronicle tales of mommyhood in the urban jungle of NYC... I'll be sharing thoughts on my new role and the challenges of balancing bambina, work and whatever semblance of a life I have left. I'm on a quest to find baby/stroller-friendly restaurants & shops, fab websites and, if successful, be a resource for other new city moms out there. Wish me luck!
If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.
