Happy 9th Birthday Jack!

Monday, October 26th, 2015

Please join me in wishing a very happy birthday to the sweetest little bad dog I know, Jack! It was his birthday yesterday and he got quite a few new toys that he destroyed faster than a zombie on The Walking Dead.

SMH it’s so very Jack. 9 years and he hasn’t slowed down yet.

Love you Jackster! Thanks for keeping me on my toes.

Oh so much snow. This winter has been weighed down with it. Thick and heavy and seemingly never ending.

Poor Jack has barley been out more than a few moments at a time with the temperatures constantly below freezing so all we do are quick runs in and out. As we go along on our dashes we both look back out at the porch with longing. Dreaming of the days to come when we can once again sit out and have the sun shining warmly on our faces.



But from now on those lovely porch sits will be different forever changed. Our very good friend not by our side but always in our hearts.

Happy Birthday Nana.

With all our love.

Hit me… 21! Happy Birthday Dear Twins!!!

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

21 years ago this day seemed so far away. Something that would happen in the future. The far, far away future, like say… cars that park themselves and watches that are phones future and we all know that those will never—oh crap!

Never mind that, still I don’t know how the day has snuck up on me. These 21 years of diapers, baths, homework, school milestones, dance recitals, tee ball, basketball, moving ups, stepping downs, graduations, laughter and tears, just all of it has gone by in what now feels like the blink of an eye. And honestly if  I had my chance I’d rewind the clock and do it all again only this time slowing down to truly take in each and every precious moment and tell you both, triple time this time, how much I love you.

But alas I can’t do that, so I’ll have to make do with telling you now, as often as I can, for as long as I can, that my love for you is still strong and reminding you that though the world says you are now “legal adults” you’ll always be my babies and forever have my heart.

You 2 have made me 1 blessed mama. Thank you. Happy 21st Birthday.

I had a wonderful day yesterday at the Brooklyn Book Festival. Though the weather was a little gloomy and muggy, spirits were still high and I had a great time signing books with the fantastic Laura Curtis.

I love meeting readers and making new friends!




We even saw Waldo!

Now it’s time to get back to the writing grind as the words wait for no one and I’d better use ‘em while I have ‘em but first…

please join me in wishing a very Happy Birthday to my beautiful and amazing mother.

Happy Birthday Ma! I love you with all my heart.

We all do. Keep shining bright!

ma and me


Love always,


They Say It’s My Birthday!

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

And a big part of my wants to just sweep it under the rug or at least sweep myself under the covers, curl up go back to sleep and pretend this day didn’t even happen. It’s silly I know and totally wrong. I shouldn’t be focused or worried about the fact that I’m no longer the dewy faced young’un I used to be, in fact I should be celebrating the fact that I’m not. That girl was a hot mess and for the most part didn’t know if she was coming or going most of the time.

Now hold onto your laughter, I can hear it from here. You’re all saying but, Kwana, most days you still don’t know whether you’re coming or going. This is true, but it’s less days than it used to be and that’s a great thing. I may not yet be where I want to be and heck, I may not exactly have a picture of where THAT is, but I do know I’m closer to it than I was a year ago.

I have plenty to celebrate in my uncertainty. I have a wonderful family, great friends, a super DH, fantastic kids and still one terrible terrier. Hey, I’m not one to brag (snort) but when I take a moment to stop and think of the good, instead of focusing on the not so fantastic it doesn’t take long to realize how truly blessed I am (note to self: do this focusing on the good more often).

Happy Birthday to me indeed!

Another thing that’s pretty great about hanging now in the middle of the age pack is that I don’t feel the need to beat about the bush about the things I mean to say or the things I want. You’re not going to find me being all passive aggressive (subtweets aside) (though I was never much for that, maybe the shortest of times in my early 20’s during the odd newlywed stage). But now it’s now pretty much in my head then out my mouth and to that I’ll take a page from my mom and just say what I want for my birthday this year leave out any pesky guessing. The gift I’d like the most is for friends to pass the word on about my work this year past. As still a mostly under the radar author I’d love it if you’d tell someone who doesn’t know me about one of my books. That would make my day. More than that, tell 2 friends, and so on and so on… and it would make my year!

Either way just having you stop by as you have been has made the past year more special than I can say. Thank you for being one of my undeserved, but so thankful for blessings this year. Cheers to a fabulous year ahead.

Happy Friday! Do you all have the same Scandal hangover as I do? Whew, I’m about worn out! If you’re a Scandal fan please head on over to Heroes and Heartbreakers to check out my recap and reaction to last night’s show. Just click here and please chime in with your thoughts.

Time for another cold weekend with the forecasters predicting more snow on the way. But I won’t let that bring be down as there is a lot to celebrate this weekend and I’m seeing sunshine and blue skies as I spend the day with one of my very favorite people in all the world.  Please join me in wishing a very happy early birthday to my lovely Nana who will be celebrating on Sunday!

Ch-ch-ch-Changes… Happy Birthday Dear Twins!

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

So it happened…

 No matter what my feelings or your father’s. No, we couldn’t slow it down or stop time.

The teenage years are done and twenty is here.

Happy 20th Birthday My dear, Our Dearest Twins!


On this day our wish for you is the same as it’s been since the very first. For you both to be full of happiness, and peace, to be safe and live a life full of love and joy. To continue to do your best as you go out in the world and reach for the stars.

All we ask in return is that you cut us some slack and know that, though you’re truly young adults, for as long as we live you’ll be our babies and the two most precious people in the world to us. Continue to make us as proud as we are today.

Changes… yep, they happen and we can’t change that just like you can’t change our love.


Love forever,

Mom & Dad

Wishing the best of birthdays today to my Super Cool Mom today. I’m thinking that though a blue box would be pretty neat gift she just may take a sweet blue cake as a 2nd best substitute.

Have the best day Ma, I love you!
