Happy Birthday!

Today my little guy is 2 years old! Its hard to believe that he's been around for two whole years already. Its amazing how fast babies/toddlers change and grow. He's not tall enough to reach the kitchen counter - which means we all need to be much more careful about what we leave wear. I first realized it when I saw him walking around munching on a bagel, the second time he was standing there going "oooh, wow" with the scissors in his hand! YIKES!!!

Anyway, Happy Birthday to my little guy. Today will be a day filled with Cars, The Wiggles, chicken nuggets, watermelon and animal crackers. And tomorrow my parents and sister will most likely spoil him rotten.

I want it: Travel Race Track

I want it!! I mean, my son wants it, yeah, that's it. This is just an awesome idea and I know my little guy would flip over it.

This original BooZeeba Travel Track is handcrafted from new flannel and felt. The felt racetrack is securely attached and the pockets are interlined and double stitched to withstand hours of driving and the inevitable crash. The Travel Track closes with a "hook and loop" type fastener so even the youngest driver can fasten it. The Travel Track does not come with cars as most boys have more cars then they know what to do they'll know what to do with up to 6 regular sized Matchbox-type "extras" or 3 larger cars or trucks.

Love it! Travel Track by BooZeeba

Show & Tell: Summer line

Summer is almost here! Sun, swimming, ice cream, watermelon, BBQ's and hanging out by the pool or at the beach (or as us Jersey folk say "down the shore").

Shell jewelry is always a great summer accessory, it goes great with a sun dress, swimsuit, shorts and a tee or any other fun summer outfit.

I'm also planning on introducing some fun anklets and toe rings in the next few weeks, so keep those eyes peeled!

Happy Summer

One in a Million

I'm a little late in posting this tribute, but its the first chance I've had to sit down and blog in the last week. On Monday morning, May 4 my grandmother died, she had a massive stroke on Friday morning and somehow managed to hang in there through the weekend. She is survived by her 3 children and their spouses and her 7 grandchildren plus one grandson-in-law and a great grandson (my little guy).

Everyone who knew my grandmother always said that she was a beautiful woman, and she truly was. She always wore brown and earth tones and loved pearls, her clothes were always perfectly pressed and always fit her like a glove. Listening to people talk about her, I learned something that I never knew - my grandmother was a model before she got married. While it surprised me to hear it, I don't doubt it at all. She always stood tall and her presence was always felt. She always said how proud she was that I inherited her black hair and that we were born in the same month and how we were both perfect Scorpios.

There are a lot of things I will remember about my grandmother, but there is one thing that will stick in my head, it's a conversation we had back in January. I'm sitting on the couch next to her and out of the blue she says to me "Do you know how beautiful you are?" I was stunned by the question and obviously didn't answer quick enough and she went around the room asking people if they thought I was beautiful. Of course they all said yes, being a smart ass, I said "They have to say yes, I am sitting right here!" but of course, it was just to cover up the tears that were welling in my eyes.

That day my grandmother told me this, and I think its something that applies to everyone. Every morning when you look in the mirror, you should say to yourself "I am beautiful. I am worth something. I am someone important."

Thank you Grandma, I'll miss you. I only wish we had more time together, I feel as though there was so much about you that I didn't know.
