This blog is dedicated to my amazing mother Alice Muscarella. My mother died on January 12, 2006. In May of 2010 I started this blog to share my mother’s wisdom. I love writing it. I love meeting the people it leads me to.
Losing my mother, let’s be frank, sucked. I miss her all the time. I am so grateful to have this outlet to share stories about what made her so special. Even as I write it, I’m not sure there is enough I can do to show what a positive and lasting impression she made on this world. My best attempt came in the form of a eulogy that I gave for her five years after her funeral.
Thank you so much for checking out my blog.
Much love,

  1. I happened across your blog and it sounds like your journey is similar to my own. I just lost my dad in July. Looking forward to reading more of you!

    • Thank you for the comment, Elizabeth. I am sorry to hear about your father. Your thoughts and comments are very welcome. I look forward to reading your blog as well. 🙂

  2. Hi Lauren! Didn’t know you had this blog until I saw it on FB. i also lost my mom to cancer when i was a college sophomore (15 years now). excited to keep reading what you’re so much bolder to do than the rest of us. 🙂 some of us just maintain travel blogs instead – since traveling is my way of escaping the truth, i suppose!

    • Nice blog theme! 😉 (I just took a look at your blog.) I’m adding it to my list. Looks like a lot of fun!

      Thank you for your note! It is very sweet. Any and all of the support I receive is what allows me to be bold, so keep the feedback coming. Stay in touch, and congrats on the new job! 🙂

  3. What a beautiful way to honor your mom. Glad to meet you! Look forward to your posts.

  4. I as well can relate to your story and quest. I am also a motherless daughter for 19 years now and lost my mother to cancer all the same.

    My heart extends to you…good luck on your journey.

  5. Thank you for your comment and your kind words. Much love, Lauren
