Dear Sentimentalist

Dear Sentimentalist, I am loving your regular updates and so thought that you might be the person to ask some fashion advice. We are off on spring break soon and I would love to treat myself to a new bikini. I remember you were wearing a very groovy bikini last summer and that it was… read more

Why Women Matter

Am I a feminist? Yes. What does that mean? It means that I, in all facets of life, believe that women (young and old) deserve the same rights as men. The reason we deserve those rights is because we have just as much to bring to the table. For me, in this day and age,… read more

I will try.

This week I will channel a little more Mother Teresa in everything I do. I will not gossip, and I will give someone an unexpected compliment. I will fearlessly give love to many people. I will pray for someone who feels lonely and unwanted. I will call a friend I haven’t spoken to in too… read more

Why write?

When I considered starting a blog I realized two primary things. First, I missed having a voice. After working in TV for almost a decade – talking to news makers, politicians, and corporate leaders – I have spent the last 4 and a half years in the land of baby babble.

Sometimes…

To all of you moms and dads out there – I hope you have a peaceful day.

How do you say I love you?

I think that sometimes it is very nice to say I love you with jewelry. John knows this, and in fairness he knew this long before he proposed.

Since that time, however, our parenting skills seem to be on the decline, as we have created a mutual dependence on the “pull-up”. And yes, although the pull-up is easy and reliable for… read more

On Character…

If you ever doubt you have enough stamina to make it to the gym take a peak at this video and I challenge you not to be inspired. Bandit is small but fierce. I am not sure I have ever so doggedly (pun intended) committed to something. My favorite moment is when he has just… read more

WTF?

Found this little critter crawling on my floor recently. (So very creepy and crawly)   I recognized him as the living kin of the dead critters I found amongst my cashmere sweaters last fall when I took them out to wear. 15 of said sweaters (both mine and John’s) had massive holes in them. WTF… read more

Amortizing Costs…

I have a fabulous neighbor. She is that woman who seems like she puts no effort into getting ready and always looks fresh-faced, put-together, and glowing. She’s the kind of mother who puts her family first and doesn’t splurge on goodies for herself. How she does it? I do not know… We recently crossed paths… read more
