Laughter is the Best Medicine (but Soup’s Good, Too)

Ahh November- the greyest month of the year. (At least it seems that way.) The days are shorter, colder and it's the start of cold and flu season. Blech. That's enough to get anyone down! In our house, the germies have been going 'round and 'round, and we're all taking turns coughing and sneezing. Sigh. Thank goodness for some awesome comedy titles on Netflix to keep us cuddled up in bed, resting and laughing off the sickies! After all, laughter is the best medicine. :) In case your household is Read more [...]

November is Prematurity Awareness Month and November 17th is World Prematurity Day. Every other year of my life, this date went by unnoticed. I had no reason to know about it, nor did it directly impact me or my life. This year is different. This year, I gave birth to a preemie of my own and spent most of the first week of his life in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Compared to most of the families I met in the NICU, our experience was easy and quick. However, please understand Read more [...]
