What’s My Age Again?

I just had to use a calculator to subtract 1987 from 2019 in order to determine how old I am. 32. I was never good at math. It feels like I was just writing down my goals for 2018 and here we are, another year, another list!  I was able to accomplish everything I hoped…

Every Little Thing, Is Gonna Be Alright

Having one child was a piece of cake. ALL of my love went into her and life was good!  I never had to worry about how my time and attention was divided because I had only her to focus on.  We knew we wanted to give her a sibling and right when I felt like…

A Long December!

Every morning I sit and write out my intentions for the day.  It gives me a chance to sort through my racing thoughts and makes everything seem a bit more “doable”.  It’s very easy to get overwhelmed this time of year and it’s a mission of mine to not just make it all happen, but…

The Art of Saying “NO!”

In honor of transparency, I am sharing with you something that I’m oddly proud of. A criticism of my first novel – which is KIND of like a photo of myself naked hours after giving birth… but less gooey. Before I do this – I want to say a few things.  I never EVER have…

Making Footprints

Seven years ago, we were loading our storage unit into a moving truck.  My only worry then was that I was uprooting my life to go live in another state with my boyfriend.  No job, no ring, nothing.  Little did I know that that would all change and my life would become better than I…

The Terrible Threes

I don’t know why or who ever coined the “terrible twos” but I would venture to guess their child was 2 and they used this phrase prematurely.  The twos are easy.  The twos are a walk in a magical park where fawns frolic across your path and fairies giggle with one another in the tree…

Dear Diary… I Cannot Relate

I was sitting in the dance studio, trying to work on my manuscript while simultaneously watching my child pick her wedgie and scrolling instagram when I saw an article that said a famous actress won’t let her daughter(s) watch Little Mermaid and Cinderella because she doesn’t want them to give their voice up for a…

Decisions, Decisions

Writing is my release.  It’s what I have always used, from a young age to express myself  and to work out stresses within my life that I wasn’t all that comfortable saying out loud.  I did it before I ever really connected with the joy of reading – getting lost in someone else’s story.  …

YOU Are The Problem!

What does the working mom, the stay-at-home mom, the granola mom, the helicopter mom, the mom who lets her kids eat processed foods (gasp), the breastfeeding mom, the step mom… OK EVERY mom have in common? They all have a really hard job. Not because they’re running late and traffic is at a standstill. Not because their…

Girl, I Have Washed My Face : Because I Promised Myself I Would

I’ve had several of my close girlfriends tell me what an amazing book Girl, Wash Your Face is.  I even came close to purchasing it, but my arm was already overloaded with my fiction novels and children’s Gerald and Piggie collection.  I always talk about signs and something nagged at me for not getting this…
