Malala, A Modern Day Heroine (#HeNamedMeMalala)

One reason that I blog is because I believe that I am contributing to a valuable conversation. For that reason, I was honored that I was asked to spread the word about a provocative movie telling the story about an amazing young woman, Malala Yousafzi.

Tips from a Working Mom: Always Think About What You Need

I attended a meeting yesterday.  It was great.  I gave a presentation, met new people and had a really good lunch. As I was leaving they placed out some snacks for the attendees. I noticed a bowl full of bananas. I remembered that we were out of bananas at home and that the baby loves having bananas for breakfast. I also had no plans of going to the grocery store last night.  So...the banana and I left the meeting and the baby got his breakfast.

Growing up my mother used to call me "Jacqueline Onassis". I think she thought I suffered from delusions of grandeur. I on the other hand believed that my people and I deserved royal treatment.

Breathtaking View

As a working mom it is easy to allow your things to do list to consume you. Indeed, I sometimes go through life with blinders on and fail to notice the beautiful world in which I live. Fortunately, I am sometimes forced to pause.

Pay Attention to Life's Beauty

There is news. Then there is "I am so honored I want to make a speech worthy of the Oscars" news. I have that kind of news to share today.  Recently, I was asked to be a blogger ambassador for Chik-Fil-A.

A Peek Into the Life of a Working Mom: A Newsletter Appearance (#TBT)

To say that my family and I LOVE the Pittsburgh Children's Museum would be a huge understatement. We're contributors. We're regulars. Our daughter even attended preschool there. Indeed, we may have set a record for consecutive days in attendance. We are there a lot.
