Five minutes in my brain.
It's 7:45am. It's way too early for me to be up on a Sunday.  The dogs did it.  Well, one of them.  Our older dog, who I love with my entire heart, wakes us up earlier on the regular and tends to cry like a baby when we leave him and his sister pup downstai...

Book of the Week: Women Are Scary, Melanie Dale
When I received an email introducing me to Melanie Dale and her new book with an opportunity to read and review it I jumped at the chance. I mean - look at the cover? It's hilarious. Even my husband asked me, are those cake pops? Uhm, yeah. Yeah, they are. ...

1000 Voices. And I am one.
Voices. Connecting. Gathering together. Speaking loudly. All for one thing. Compassion. When I learned about this event I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to participate. If you don't know me already, you'll learn quickly that I believe that advocating ...

Sometimes I just write.
TGIS, everyone.  Yes. Sunday.  I know. It's weird. Why would I be glad it's Sunday?  I don't know. Or maybe I do.  We did some sort of spring cleaning today. Which is perfect because we're expecting snow tomorrow. Yep. Snow. Tomorrow.  Tomorrow night, thoug...

When nothing means everything.
We just got home from a ton of errands. A quick lunch. A pop-in at a friend's. Selling some of my books. Buying more used ones (not for me - well - not more than one for me). Grocery shopping. For some reason I bought a can of Planters peanuts today. My hus...

Story
Tagline
I am who I am and I like who that is.
Introduction
My husband and I relocated to NC from NYC in May of 2006 and I am still a non-driving, pizza-and-bagel missing, native Brooklyn-born New Yorker at heart. Our daughter was born in 2007 but thinks she's a teenager most of the time. And honestly we wouldn't have it any other way. Except maybe at bedtime. And when she totally thinks she knows everything. And everything else. You know how it is, right?
