Last week, we received a holiday card and letter from our cousin. It was filled with news from their family from the past year.   I remember when we used to receive numerous holiday letters from friends and family. They all, generally, would recap the past year and shares what the families had been up to. These letters always made me smile. It made me feel connected to the writers even though they may have been far away. And it gave me a chance to take a moment and catch u...

I am now renting office space in a suite with two other law firms. The conversation on Friday turned to whether we were taking today, Columbus Day, off. I was sort of surprised to see that one of the firms would be open with full staff today. My office, as well as the other law firm in the suite is closed today.   Then the conversation turned to what other holidays do you give your staff. Apparently, I am very generous in that I am closed on all of the “Monday holidays” and ...

  Last week I wrote about a wedding tradition that I was asked to be a part of. This week my mind is still on tradition. Today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. For me and my family it is a day filled with tradition. When I was a child, my parents always had our family over for dinner on the evening of the first day of Rosh Hashanah. When my parents got older and my older brother got married, approximately twenty-five years ago, my brother took over the tradition of hos...

I look forward to May and June every year. Not only because those months signal the beginning of summer but there is always so many wonderful events going on during those months; graduations, weddings, bridal showers etc. For us, this May brings us two happy events, my youngest daughter, Sydney’s, college graduation and oldest, Danielle’s, graduation from graduate school.   Sydney graduated yesterday from SUNY Buffalo with a BS in Health and Human and Services.  In the fall, ...

Tonight is the first Passover Seder. My husband and I, every year, host both seders for our families. This year we are  hosting fifteen people the first night and twenty-seven the second night. Given our experience with cooking for Passover, we definitely have our routines down. Essentially, our routine is to save all of our cooking  for the weekend before and get it all done in one marathon weekend. It has always worked for us. And we each have our specialties that we prepar...

There is a large political movement underway on the internet. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with any of President Trump’s executive orders. Rather it is an effort to declare today, the day after the Super Bowl, a national holiday; Smunday.   And, of course, as a national holiday salaried employees would have a paid day off.   The movement is being led by Heinz Corporation. The food giant -- makers of Heinz Ketchup, Oscar Mayer hot dogs, Velveeta cheese and other product...

Anyone who knows me and my husband knows that, for many reasons, we love to travel. Clearly, one of the biggest benefits of travelling is getting away from work and stress and re-charging. For me, however, one of the most enjoyable benefits of travelling is learning something new and taking that knowledge home with me.   For example, while  in Alaska, we learned the difference between wild and farmed salmon and, now, I exclusively buy wild salmon.  In Greece, they do not use...

My children, every year, immediately get into the holiday shopping season. They love going to the mall at 5:00 a.m. on Black Friday with their friends and cousins. As much as they love the “bargains” they think they are getting,  I believe, what they enjoy most is the social aspect of Black Friday; being in the mall in the early morning hours with their family and friends.   I do not go with them to the mall on Black Friday. I do not like crowded malls and, more importantly, ...

For the first time, in a very long time, I am hosting family and friends for Thanksgiving.  For weeks, I have been planning all different menus in in my head.   I know, for many,  the “star of the show “ for Thanksgiving dinner is  the turkey.  But, for me, it’s all about the “supporting cast,” the side dishes. I already have four side dishes planned that are “must haves” for Thanksgiving dinner for my family;  stuffing (my husband makes the world's best stuffing), string bea...

Happy Halloween Gotham.  When my children were younger Halloween was a big event in my house. We would spend weeks together planning and buying costumes, then the Halloween decorations would come out and finally the big day arrived. Trick or treating was always fun but, I think my favorite part was when trick or treating was done. That was the time when the kids, over pizza, would spill out their bags and  trade their candy. For them, it was a very serious process but my memo...
