Best Books: The Handmaid’s Tale, Commonwealth, Little Fires Everywhere

Looking for a good book? I’ve got three great reads to share. All very different, but each excellent in its own way. In the last two months I had fun reading a really well written award winner, an 80s cult classic, and a current best-seller soon-to-be tv series. Commonwealth, by Ann Patchett was so complicated…. read more

Fabulous Photographer: Brown W. Cannon III

I was told by different specialists that it might be my dog, and that I should consider getting rid of her. That I… read more

Letting Go of Guilt

Oh people. Has this been a winter or what??? So. Much. Kid. Sickness. Between the croup, and the vomit, and the diarrhea, and then more vomit, and more diarrhea, and more croup, I found a podcast that made me say, “Oh yeah. I needed you today friend.” The theme is about letting go of guilt,… read more

Great Business: The Parent Collective

Any expectant mamas in the house? If so, I am very jealous!!! Pregnancy and childbirth have been the highlights of my life to date. That’s not to say that when pregnant I wasn’t worried, anxious, and terrified for my babies health and my own. When I was expecting my first, I took a pre-natal class… read more
