I love being a woman. As Jackie Kennedy said ‘I am a woman above all else’. But being ‘the woman of the house’ sometimes feels more like being the social director of the carnival cruise from hell. I feel like no matter what I am doing, I am supposed to be doing something else. If I am working, my kid needs me, if I am with my kid, my husband needs me, if I am with my friends, my boss needs me. A lot of the time it feels like whatever event is happening that I’m supposed to be at, on this little cruise called life, is on the deck of the ship and I can’t get to it!!!! Well, tonight I am serving cocktails on the lolito deck. The lolito deck being my balcony at home and the cocktails really just being cocktails. If anybody needs the social director (boss, kids, hubby, or friends) you know where to find me.

P.S. I quit.

Here’s a little Springtime Martini recipe…well really it’s an Anytime Martini, but not before noon because then it’s called a You Gotta Problem Martini.

What you’ll need

2 oz peach flavored vodka

1 oz Peach Schnapps

½  tsp crushed rosemary


Shake all the ingredients with ice and pour into a Martini glass. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
