Chic Ball Bead Bracelets

This past summer I spent a week in the Hamptons. I had been looking for months for these gold bead bracelets and I figured if I was going to find them anywhere it would be in the shops in East Hampton.  Well, no luck. Ironically, a guy who shared a fire island house with my husband called my husband weeks… Read More

Modern Day Charm Jewelry

Buying gifts is super hard especially when it comes to jewelry. Unless someone tells you exactly what they want, it’s always a guessing game. And, unfortunately, that gift usually ends up as a return leaving the giver feeling defeated. After many years of marriage, I explained to my husband, while I appreciated all his effort, it would be best if… Read More

Behind the Scenes of Planning a Mitzvah

Three years ago I got Zach’s Bar Mitzvah date. I didn’t think much about it except that it would be in Israel and that was that. Well, life doesn’t always go according to plan and we had to cancel the trip. What was supposed to be a small kids party slowly turned into, for lack of a better word, a… Read More

Thoughts in Yoga 7.18.17

This morning I took a killer yoga class. I am not sure if was the heat or the intensity but it was one of those classes you leave knowing you had a sick workout. During shivasana I could have sworn Liz (yoga teacher) played an Eddie Vedder song. Although Vedder was not singing Hare Krishna, it was seriously his voice… Read More


I almost fell over when I saw the preview for Odd Mom Out running on Visiting Day. Um… hello? That looks vaguely familiar…. 4 years ago was it that I wrote The Running of the Jews? Hmmm.

A letter to my former college self

I was recently asked to write an advice letter to my former college self that could potentially help future college students. My journey from college to real life has been filled with a ton of lessons but if there were 10 things I wish someone had told me before my freshman year it would go something like this: Dear Amy,… Read More

Mother’s Day, I do not want…

Dear Greg (husband), When you asked me what I wanted on Mother’s Day, I wasn’t kidding, I do not want anything. I do not want breakfast in bed. I am not a fan of crumbs and I certainly do not want to deal with washing and drying sheets. The thought of having to put that duvet cover back on the… Read More

6 Days, 600 Miles of Californication

Life is unpredictable. If you asked me last year where I would be Spring Break 2017, I would have told you Israel. However, due to some unforeseen life events, we wound up on a road trip through California. A very, very long road trip. My brother moved to LA when he got hitched so we figured we would begin our… Read More

The Age of the Prosti-Tots

I will preface this article by stating I am the mother of boys. Two amazing boys I wouldn’t trade for the world (on most days).  I am aware I am writing this article through the lens of a mom with without daughters.  I tread lightly… I have on been on a World Mitzvah Tour since September. From NJ, NY, Westchester,… Read More
