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!

After finding my family’s old ice cream maker in my dad’s basement a few weeks back, I decided it was time to test it out again after over 25 years. The ice cream maker still worked great, and I was … Continue reading
My girls and I have found a new love: ceramics. We happened upon a class that had some open seats and immediately we knew it was a match made in Heaven. A common misconception of homeschooled-children is that they lack … Continue reading
A few years back I shared with you my love of all things old: books, clothes, music and furniture. I love that in nourishing vintage items, we can breath life into them and make the old become new. My husband’s … Continue reading
