First Day of Second Year...

My girl and her beautiful friends are not too old for a first day of school picture.
I think sophomore year already looks good on her!

Vote for Jim Gill...

I just love our community! Our friend Jim Gill has started a National Campaign for Play and made a video showing off his catchy new song, Vote for Jim Gill! It is a silly and challenging listening game for children and adults. If you watch the video below I am sure you'll find one of the handsome construction workers looks familiar and you can spot Nancy in the video, too! 
Leave it to Jim Gill to make politics fun!
His new CD is a must have for all the little ones in your life!
Visit to pick up a copy.

Finn sent me this selfie at the start of his junior year.
Needless to say he is less than thrilled summer is over.

Philly Digs...

 Emma was totally excited to be back in her new home town and even more excited to put down roots in her very first apartment! She is sharing a lovely, brand-new and not quite finished third floor flat with two other girls.  She is over the moon about the whole set up!

We set her up with a brand new bed and a retro-fabulous kitchen table.  She made her own "head board" from a chain of paper cranes she and I folded during our drive out to Philly. We 
unearthed her other belongings from storage and made sure her favorite inherited vanity made it safely to campus from Chicago.

She already looks right at home, doesn't she?

Bon Voyage Bolognese...

 Saying good-bye to Emma is never easy, but it is always delicious! We are prepared to part ways so she can start her second year at Temple University and wanted to be sure we gave her a proper send off.  Nancy came over and we all enjoyed a true Italian feast!

A Wedding on a Colorado Mountain Top...

 Emma and I  started our morning with a big beautiful room service breakfast before getting all gussied up and heading to the top of Vail mountain for a very special day!

 Gondola Girls
I really cannot put into words just how breathtaking this vista really was and I could not have imagined a better place to perform a wedding ceremony for a couple of extraordinary women in front of their beautiful bevy of friends.

 I nannied for Molly when she was just four years old and I am happy to say she grew up to be a pretty spectacular person. She and her love, Katie, met at Oxford and have been together ever since. Their love story is one of my favorites and to say they both deserved this festive day is a huge understatement. They were a joyous duo from start to finish!
And I even got to spend time with my newest crush; this little man belongs to Katie's sister and makes me a "grand nanny!" Trust me you've never met a more well adjusted young man.
Congratulations to Molly and Katie! 
I count performing this wedding ceremony among the greatest honors of my life!
