This journey of coordinating Aroha Philanthropy’s Artful Aging Program through the YMCA has been truly magical. The conversations I have had over the course of the last year with our participants tell me that art is truly transformational. These programs not only enabled men and women to venture out of their homes and learn (or rediscover) a new skill set, but gave them a safe space in which to share stories with one another of life’s trials and triumphs.💚 #artcantransformlives #artcantransformtheworld #rockriverymca #rockfordillinois #rockfordrocksDinner prep 🌿 #rootvegetables #rootveggies #homegrown #urbanhomestead #homestead #homegrown #growityourselfMy youngest decided to experiment with homemade gluten free pasta, so she busted out my Nona’s old school ravioli maker 😍👩🏼🍳 #urbanhomestead #homeschool #makeityourself #homeschoolkids #oldworlditalianwithatwistGuys, we are having so much fun down at the @rockriverymca 🙌🏻 Come down and join us!

It dawned on me the other day that I haven’t given you a proper update on the school garden at my daughters’ school, The Cathedral of St. Peter School, since May. What a travesty I tell you! So, slip into your … Continue reading
From the very moment my two little girls entered this world, I instantly began worrying about their schooling. I’m not sure why these thoughts consume me so. Maybe it is my teacher-self knowing the importance of education. Or maybe it … Continue reading
