If you’ve met us for realz, you know our little girl attends the @phoenixschoolsalemma and LOVES it. She’s in kindergarten and her favorite things are pizza Friday (@adriatic_salem), using her imagination in the Maker’s Space, and regular visits to the @peabodyessex (in particular learning about Chinese culture). Our little girl’s classmates are a culturally diverse… Read More Where would you go if you could travel anywhere?
If you live in New England in the winter and/or if you have an elementary school aged child at home (like me) you know germs are jerky manifesters who enjoy setting up shop and making the household cough and achy and are SO ANNOYING for months. Since Yule my little family has had cold after… Read More Spell Recipe – Kick your coughs to the curb
American politics are in complete chaos – still. I’ve had to deactivate my facebook. I refuse to listen to the news. My sensitive soul can’t stand the policies being put in place that harm people I love. From the theft our our nation’s public lands by hungry investors, to using military force to block refugees… Read More Trans Rights are Human Rights
Little Free Libraries! What a perfectly amazing concept – you read a book. You think it’s ok, but you know you will never read it again.

Designed to steal another’s life from their body.… Read More Have you heard of Sarah Winchester?

I won’t spoil it for you, because I know a bit about SEO and all that so definitely click HERE before you read on so I can be sure… Read More “GRAB THE FIRST NEW MOON OF THE YEAR BY ITS HORNS”
Imposter syndrome. It sneaks up on all of us. One day you’re walking along, being all “whatever” and suddenly it hits you – Who do I think I am? Why do I think I’m allowed to partake in whateverthethingisyouwerealreadydoinganyway? I’m not in anyway an official historian, but I find the history of Salem to… Read More I’m an imposter.
