I am thrilled to introduce you to an incredible person I am blessed to have as an extended family member and to call my friend, Barrie Farivar! Barrie is an inspiration with her innovative idea to capture and store family memories forever. I have been using the Leaf app myself and I am in awe of all the details Barrie thought of. Without further ado... a MOM WHO ROCKS- BARRIE FARIVAR!!

Hi! My name is Barrie Farivar and I’m a first generation Russian Jew, mom of two girls (5 and 3 years old), Harvard MBA, and Founder of leaf – great to meet you!

I am excited to share leaf with this community because it has brought my family so much joy and I hope it can do the same for you. 

Leaf is a free app (iPhone, Android) and is the easiest way to record and share your family’s memories. It was intentionally designed to focus on audio because we believe audio is the most authentic and unobtrusive way to record a moment or story – it’s hard to be your true self when a phone or camera is pointed at you! You own all of your recordings and they are safely stored with cloud-based storage. 

Our family has had a lot of fun capturing moments big and small with our daughters such as the first day without diapers at school, silly songs they sing, and bedtime routines. We’ve also been able to record meaningful conversations with parents and grandparents about topics such as the Holocaust and their immigration to the US. Hearing a loved one’s voice even a few days after a recording is gratifying, but listening to it years down the road and being able to share with future generations is truly special. I genuinely hope to help you document moments that matter to you too. 

You can follow leaf on Instagram @sharewithleaf for product tips, user testimonials, and ideas of moments to record. Please also reach out any time with questions or feedback to

I am honored to introduce you to two Sisters spreading Love, Light & Peace through their creativity. What a beautiful project to help others in a time of need. We had a great time on Instagram live talking about this meaningful project and how we can help spread light in a time of helplessness as we approach the holiday season. Please follow @sidebysidedeign on Instagram and check out their site

Side by Side Design has partnered with Tia Moskowitz in the design of this sleek and modern product line in support of Love, Light & Peace for the people of Israel. A large portion of the proceeds will aid in mental health support for those affected by the war. Please work Side by Side with us to help spread the word and get everyone you know to wrap their holiday gifts with Love, Light & Peace this holiday season.

I genuinely love showcasing special people in my life here on my blog. When introducing my awesome friend Jen, this quote comes to mind :

" Kindred spirits are quiet supporters that can offer us moments of understanding, insight, and delight on the winding road of our life paths."- Aletheia Luna

As I began our Cheers to Naptime community, I was connected with friends from near, far, past, and present. That said, I reconnected with an old close friend of mine from my high school days. This friend would join me virtually for my nightly "Cheers" videos throughout the pandemic supporting my mission to spread positivity during an uncertain time. Little did I know that his wife was next to him enjoying the little doses of positivity I was trying to share with the universe. I didn't know her yet and I didn't realize that I was about to connect with a true kindred spirit. Jen reached out to me to tell me that she had been enjoying my content from afar and that we should connect. Since we met, we have truly been each other's biggest fans, encouraging the other to shoot for the stars and pivot as life throws continuous curve balls our way. I have been in awe of Jen's resilience, amazing work ethic, and compassionate heart. On her path as a health coach, I enlisted her expertise in finding healthier options to feed our family based on the things we eat regularly. Our "field trip" to the grocery store was so much fun and very informative. Catch a few videos of Jennifer and I chatting about our health journeys on my Instagram @cheerstonaptime as well as hers @jenniferstar78.

Without further ado, introducing a special human: JENNIFER CHAVEZ!!

Hi friends! My name is Jennifer and I’m a Wellness Warrior. I battled health issues for over half of my life and I ended up having my large intestine removed to save my life. After the extensive surgery, I was on a mission to find a lifestyle that fit my new needs. As a registered nurse, I thought I was equipped with all the appropriate knowledge, but I quickly found out that I had a lot to learn in the health and wellness world. With the support of the health coach program at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, my eyes opened on all the new possible ways to live a life based on my specific bio-individual needs. Empowered with a new view on how to live life to the fullest, I’m spreading awareness to help others who struggle with ailments. As a health coach, I help clients not only look at the food on their plates, we work together to review overall health, your home environment, home cooking, your social life, your relationships, financial stress, physical activity, creativity, spirituality, your career, education and joy. Since health is multidimensional and you are your own special person, I tailor my program around YOUR needs. This is not a one size fits all type of program. If you are looking for help and don’t know where to start, I am your Wellness Warrior! After you complete my program, you become a Wellness Warrior too. Together, our Wellness Warrior Community can create a ripple effect to help bring awareness to others.
