Just yesterday Model/Author Chrissy Teigen posted something on her Instagram account that blew me away. Her loss. Her Pregnancy Loss. The pictures were so devastating to look at, not because of the images per se, but for the memories they brought back in my mind from my loss, long ago. I don’t think celebrities really know how important it is to share their grief with all of us. Grief sucks. To lose a baby sucks. We, as humans, have a need to not feel alone. I noticed that in the past 24 hours since Chrissy’s loss, a few celebrities have came forward, such as Kate Beckinsale, and shared their loss as well. I have never been so proud and so touched. There was a point that I started sobbing so hard, I felt compelled to thank Chrissy for posting about her loss because when I lost Alex in March 1995,Read More →

The passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg got me blogging again. She was one of those pioneers for women that will be hard to replace, most especially on the Supreme Court. For what it seems like right now, her possible replacement is against everything she was for, which is sobering. It’s sobering to me in particular because I know how much RBG changed our country, and for the better. I honestly want a supreme court that gives a crap about Health Care, not reverse Roe. Reversing Roe will not stop abortions, it will only make them unsafe. For those that have seen episodes of “Call the Midwife” where women would risk their life for an abortion, you know that’s the truth. Women in devastating situations WILL die. Period.As per Health Care… I guess it must be easy to knock the “medicare for all” when all your children are healthy and youRead More →

I came across this quote a while back and it kinda just “hit me” in the gut. “The most destructive thing I’ve ever done is believe someone else’s opinion of me” I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this quote… How many times, in our lives, people put us down and bully us without knowing the full story? How many times have we been compared to others and we are told we do not “measure up” to them? As if living is a competition on who is more educated, more beautiful, or who makes more money? I’ve learned along the way that the most wonderful people I’ve ever met are not the most successful, nor the most educated. The most wonderful people are those who are caring and compassionate, who have empathy and know that a kind word goes a long way. You know, those people that know whenRead More →

What I am watching I have to be honest, the last thing I wanted to do this summer was sitting in front of the TV and watch endless shows. I should be in Italy right now visiting my family. I was supposed to take my kids camping, and I wanted to take a stroll by the beach. But… COVID-19 ruined everything for everyone, so we are stuck at home, hoping, praying, that my son Nicky and my husband won’t get sick. So, here we are. Lately I’ve been watching all kinds of shows trying to find something good… I saw a several shows that I can’t really suggest, they were just weird or bizarre. Then FINALLY I came across this one… ALLELUJA!!! Something really good! I can talk endlessly about The Affair! SO MUCH resonated with me. Surprisingly, I’ve never heard of this show until last fall when Showtime wasRead More →
