To The Father Of My Children

Thank you for loving me even when I could not love myself.

To The Father Of My Children

To the Man that I love dearly,

Thank you. For just being YOU.

It's 11 p.m. and here i am watching you while you are sleeping, You have your arm gracefully over your face right now while you slip a small snore here and there. I don't know why but i can not seem to help but think about how peaceful you look right now. Gosh, you so deserve it too.

Thank you for working so hard to support all five of us.

I don't deserve you. You pull 40-60 hours a week just so that I can stay home and care for our family.I sure am one lucky gal. Never once do you complain about it either. Not to mention, you wake me up to coffee and breakfast on the days you are off so that i can sleep in an hour or two longer. Oh the relief that those few hours give me.

Thank you for helping me with our kids and being thoughtful of my needs, too.

Because of you, I can rest peacefully at night after a long hard day. From getting a candle lit bath (alone); to getting to go to the grocery store without having to get the kids out; even though it took me two hours to do 45 minutes of shopping. Once again, you did not complain. You are the most selfless man I've met, ever.

But more importantly, thank you for not giving up on us & for loving me- even when i could not love myself.

Before you came along I had faced many dark times alone. But now I know that as long as i have you by my side that there is nothing to be afraid of. When I had nobody, felt alone and empty, you literally picked me up and dusted me off reminding me that it is just a speed bump. I know, deep down inside, that you're Heaven sent. I thank God daily for you and I always pray for you, us, and our family.

Because of you i now know that the meaning of "home" isn't a place- it's a feeling. You are my home, my safe place, and I can not wait to see what our future holds.

I love you, so much.


A very thankful wife.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
