In case you forgot (and how could you when every news station, commercial and ads have been reminding you) today, May 12th, is Mother’s Day. Every year the second Sunday in the month of May is dedicated to honoring the women who birthed us, raised us, and taught us about the world around us. Motherhood is a spectacular thing, and of course we want to honor the women in our lives who have made such a big impact. Continue reading →
Tax Day is just looming around the corner. As most any adult in the United States would know, April 15th marks the deadline for filing taxes. For the people who got their taxes done weeks ago and already have a nice return sitting in their bank account, April 15th is just like any other day. But for the procrastinators it’s a feared day, and a dreaded one for those who owe taxes. Continue reading →
There are reasons for why women crave and worship this thing that is the cocoa bean. Aside from all of the scientific rationale and biological factors it comes down to the fact that chocolate nourishes the body, mind, spirit and anything else that needing sustenance. Due to men’s emotional in-accessibility they don’t need chocolate as much as women do … Just kidding. Let’s get back to science. Continue reading →

Her then boss was her father and she designated October 16th as the day to celebrate since that was his birthday. She must have gotten a lot of brownie points for this (and a lot of flack from her fellow co-workers).
Since then, National Boss’s Day has become what we like to call in America a “Hallmark Holiday.” Continue reading →
If you work in office, people often assume that your job must be boring. They imagine you sitting in a seat behind a desk from nine to five staring at a computer screen.

But us office folk know exactly how crazy the workplace can get. And thanks to stock photography, they are recreating the scenarios you may see … or may not see … in an office… Continue reading →
Along with seasons changing, our diets change as well. Mostly in part to the fact that different foods are harvested in different times of the year and because we like the temperature of our foods to correlate with temperature of the air.

So the weather is changing, and pumpkins are in abundance as we head into October which can only mean pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING. Continue reading →
Doors. Such an existential symbol. With phrases such as, “When one door closes, another door opens” “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out” “My door is always open” or “Oh now go! Walk out that door! Just turn around now, cuz you’re not welcome anymore.”
A point is always emphasized when a door is slammed. In college, rooms will often leave their door open to encourage people to come hang out. A closed door means privacy is wanted.
Motherhood is something universal. No matter where you are in the world, if you have a heart its strings are pulled with the sound of that word. There’s something beautiful in seeing a woman so swollen and inflated that she has to mimic a duck’s waddle to cross the street. Continue reading →
