This was a well spent Saturday afternoon with Lesley and her guys. (Lesley was the raffle winner of a Family Photo Session at the last Mums for Mount Sinai Beads for Babies fundraising event I donated to last year, hosted by Embella Party.)

Torran treated me like a royal guest, and introduced me to his favourite stuffed animals, toys, and love of all things culinary. And Lesley and Bruce were both equally engaged in making this a family photo shoot to remember. They filled each room with copious amounts of laughter and happiness, something I’m sure they do even when I’m not around!

And I got to meet another mom on a mission. Lesley writes about her everyday journey as Torran’s mom, who was born premature and weighed only two pounds when he was born at Mount Sinai’s NICU 6 years ago. You can read her blog, realwomendrivestick here.

One sweet family.

10 on 10 MARCH

Last week my little guy and I headed down to Williamsport, PA with a best friend of mine, Natalie, and her two kids. She heads down to her hometown several times a year and invited us to come along this time. I’m always happy to do a road trip and was just as eager to get out of the city for a while.

A highlight of our trip to PA, besides meeting Natalie’s sweet family and friends, was our sunny-day introduction to ice fishing. Something I certainly never did growing up in the city! Staring out onto the expansive ice in front of us was as exciting as it was strange. Thoughts of ‘falling in’ definitely crossed my mind but our kids wasted no time estatically sliding their way across the ice with their aqua blue sled in tow.

We enjoyed learning about how to ice fish from Natalie’s brother, Eric and his daughter Emma. But for me, the opportunity to experience the beauty of acres of pure white frozen lake, surrounded by rolling hills and eagles flying overhead was like taking a much-needed deep breath, and an equally exhilirating exhale.
