Watch Me, But Don’t Look At Me

Chelsea as a three year-old: Dad! Daddy! Come watch my dance! I just made it up! Hurry! Dad: Okay, Pookadella, we're coming! Chelsea: Okay, but you can only watch me...don't look at me, okay? This is a conversation I had with my parents time and time again. When I was just a little girl I…

Our New Friends

A couple of months ago, when Domi started school, he came home and proclaimed, “I found some really cool friends!” I was so excited. We had, had a dry spell when it came to finding friends that lived near-ish to us, that were close-ish to our age that wanted to do the same things we…

A Viennese Holiday

When we woke up this morning and Domi was feeling under the weather I knew it was going to be an interesting day. Domi usually can power through anything so when he told me that he thought he had to spend the day in bed I knew he was really feeling icky. So, I had…

A Little Vomit and Some Holiday Cheer

First of all, I have to make a slight amendment to my last post. I had said that I was doing away with being obsessed with traditions, but after a really special conversation with my lovely mother-in-law, I am seeing things a bit differently. She pointed out to me that it’s not about doing away…

Baby Tevye Celebrating Christmas

I am a stickler when it comes to traditions. I always want everything to be just how it was when I was a kid. Always. No changing. Got it? I’m like a mini Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof, “Tradition, tradition, tradition!”  I have always easily welcomed new people into our family’s traditions, but I…

Bambi On Ice and Accidental Confidence

I will start by saying that I have a husband that is good at everything and not just like “good,” but pretty freaking amazing at, well…everything. He always goes into something new going, “oh my gosh, I’m not sure, I’ve never done this before…" and then proceeds to blow everyone out of the water. It’s…

What’s in a name…well, turns out, a lot.

I sat on the bar stool as the hair was ripped out of my eyebrows for about the millionth time in my life. Suzie, the perpetrator of the pain and also my dear friend (and incredible eyebrow, makeup artist and entrepreneur) looked at me and asked, “Have you ever actually told anyone the story of…

Happy Anniversary Dad and Daddy

I try not to get political here. I try to keep my very strong political beliefs to myself in this space in an effort to not reject anyone’s opinions, but to me, this story isn’t about political ideology, this story is about my family and my belief that no matter what anyone may think, we…

Holy moly we have friends people!!

I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but I have found it ridiculously hard to meet people and to make friends post-graduation and pre-baby-having.  Domi and I both are blessed with some of the most incredible friends. It just so happens that the majority of them don’t live in the same state, or,…
