Jerseylicious, Bloggerlicious, it’s Octoberlicious!

Happy Blogtober!  I asked you to blog and blog you did. AND, since I am a woman of my word…. Here are some wonderful new blogs written by a few extraordinary Butterflies:

  1. It’s Not Fair, by Julie Cole, mother of SIX. Read about Julie’s stellar performance in “showing” her kids what IS and IS NOT fair.
  2. A Radical Way to Organize School Lunches by Evelyn Cucchiara, mother of three. Revealed- a step-by-step guide to school lunches made easy!
  3. Scraped Knees and Broken Hearts by Cheryl  Shireman, mother of  three and grandmother of one.  A MUST-READ piece about a mother/daughter journey in lessons of love.

 

October boasts more than inspiring and resourceful Butterfly blogs – October is the month to meet Gayle GiocomoGatsby Salon Owner, star of Jerseylicious, single mother and, oh so young looking, grandmother.  Get to know Gayle in our face-to-face video interview showcased on Butterfly’s homepage. Learn how this Jersey mom proved to herself, after losing her husband Daniel to a sudden heart attack, that she has was it takes to persevere as a successful single mother and business owner.

 

Ahh, October, also a time to embrace the season of Fall (not in a literal sense) and National Breast Cancer Awareness month– “Celebrating 25 Years of Awareness, Education and Empowerment.”  It’s a time to wish those who observe Yom Kippur – an easy fast, those who have off- a nice Columbus Day and to all Halloween goers- a spooktacular Halloween!

For all you beautiful, wonderful, strong and self- sufficient single mom’s out there, I have one piece of advice for you on this Valentine’s Day, “Love Yourself and Be Your Own Valentine!”

So what if you don’t have a Valentine this year. Who cares? You may have one next year so don’t fret and take this opportunity and this special day to spoil yourself rotten and indulge. There is nothing like pampering yourself. Learn how to love yourself and appreciate “YOU”!

Indulge, splurge and pamper yourself by asking one simple question. “What do I do that makes me happy?” Is it a manicure, pedicure, facial or Botox?! Is it buying that special outfit or those shoes that you’ve longed for? What about picking up some fresh flowers for yourself? Whatever it may be, make this day special for YOU”! READ MORE
