When “1” isn’t the loneliest number

When "1" isn't the loneliest number

When “1” isn’t the loneliest number. From fairytales to our nagging aunt, we are consistently told that we need to find our soulmate, get married and settle in for the rest of our life in order to find true bliss. So engrained is this idea of marital heaven that even long-time non-married couples face incessant pressure to bite the bullet, […]

Modern Milanese Life: Stuck at “Home” in my Home Away from Home

Learning and sharing traditions with your kids (even if they aren’t your own!)

Family traditions are a beautiful thing. They are the childhood joys that become some of your favourite memories. My family is a bit of a mixed bag, as are many of the families I know. In my family alone, we are part Canadian, Italian, Christian (both Catholic AND Protestant) and Jewish. You could say that for us […]
