A Bow For Alice

My sister is not a girlie girl so she refuses to put bows in baby Alice's hair (especially when at the moment there is so little of it). So while my sister slept this afternoon, I found an old bow of my daughter's, put it in baby Alice's hair and quickly took a pic. Shh!

mp designs


I worked an event the other night for mp designs. I am totally not a jewelry lover but the pieces were so beautiful and different that I just had to share. Every piece is handmade locally with agate and other precious stones.  I am wearing my new purchase now and not taking it off!

If you have any interest in purchasing this fabulous jewelry, mp designs is reworking their website so email them at and tell them you heard of mp designs on my blog!

Graduation Day

My only nephew graduated from Staples High School today. There are a million things I could say right now about how wonderful he is and how proud I am of him and how this is a beginning not an ending but I won't bore you with the mushy stuff. Just a shout out to Andrew Rada Medina and everyone in the class of 2012. Enjoy the moment- YOLO! (as the kids would say)

Happy Father's Day

Another busy weekend, so I'm posting a few of my favorite pics of a few of my favorite dads. 
          Enjoy the day.

My dad and me a long long time ago :)

Sega Girls School

Busy weekend. I worked two bar mitzvahs, celebrated a friend's birthday and participated in a walkathon. Well I didn't really participate, I took the pictures. The walkathon was for Nurturing Minds in conjunction with the Sega Girls School in Tanzania. My son's former teacher is passionate about the cause and is bringing a much needed awareness to Westport and beyond. It was a hot Sunday morning but there was a big crowd of all ages. The most fascinating part was meeting the two teachers from the Sega Girls School who walked with us. It was their first time in America. Talk about culture shock! They were intelligent and soft spoken with open hearts and they loved walking in Westport and getting to know their new supporters.

My favorite Westport teacher meets Clementina, one of the teachers from Tanzania.

Anok, a wise and kind teacher from Tanzania

She wasn't walking but it still counted!

One of the first to finish!

Relaxing after the long walk.

Please check out the link below for Nurturing Minds and the Sega Girls School. It's a wonderful cause and so little can make such a difference.

I went to my first prom in Westport tonight. Ok, not the actual prom, just one of the pre-parties but still it counted. The kids looked grand and they were so excited. I hope the night reaches all expectations. (I think)
