By Ilana Angel

February 14, 2013 | 7:41 am

I know Valentine’s Day is a commercial holiday that really means nothing and is overrated, but I also know that I love it and it matters to me. I am a romantic and I love everything about... read on

  • London Report Part 4: Coming Home

    By Ilana Angel

    January 6, 2013 | 7:28 am

    It is over.  After 2 weeks in London, we made our way back to Los Angeles.  In some ways the trip felt like we gone over a weekend, and in others it felt like a lifetime.  Trips to visit family are more work than vacation, and while there was stress, pressure, and a few tears, it... read on

  • Saving the Arts – Broadway Style

    When I was young I took piano lessons.  I hated them.  I begged my mother to let me stop and she said I would regret it if I quit.  I told her if I was not allowed to stop I was going to lock myself in my room and never come out.  I quit piano.  My mother was right, I regret... read on

  • Blessings from Paris to San Francisco

    Earlier in the week I was running an errand when I came upon a homeless man standing outside a Payless Shoe Store.  He appeared to be in his 60’s, but I bet he was younger.  As I passed him he asked me if I wanted to go with him to Paris for the weekend.  I let him know that I was... read on

  • One Mother, One Child, One Fear, One Day

    By Ilana Angel

    I sometimes feel very alone in terms of my life as a mother.  I don’t always relate to other moms.  I often think people just don’t get how hard it is to be a single mom, or even how much joy I get from being the mother to only one child.  I am raising him alone and it is hard.  It... read on

    A friend of mine lost his mother last week.  I went to sit Shiva and was truly touched by the loss.  I cried for the pain I felt for my friend, and also for the loss of my own father.  Losing a parent is crushing.  My father has been gone for over 10 years and I still find myself... read on

  • Happiness Stinks

    Why is it that when you are single you cannot find a decent guy to date, but when you are in a relationship, men are not only everywhere, but they are interested in you?  I have been dating the Englishman for almost 7 months and I have never had so many men ask me out.  Very... read on

  • Jewish Enough

    By Ilana Angel

    September 27, 2012 | 11:37 am

    The high holidays this year marked my first Jewish holiday experience with the Englishman.  It was a little stressful for me because I have a clear view of who I am in terms of my faith, but how he rolled though the festivities was unknown to me.  He is Jewish of course, but were... read on
