I SLAY.
It's rough. It's hard to find motivation when you want to write about all the things but you can't figure out where to begin. I've spent much of the start of 2016 slacking. Working - yes - but when it comes to my own words? Slacking. Not today, though. Toda...

Sometimes I Need to Write to Remember
What has happened here? I'm not writing. I'm not sure what's wrong. What's happening. Why I'm not writing. I'm just not. N - to the - O - to the - T. Writing. Some people write sponsored posts like crazy. Or they come up with crafts and things and they shar...

Ten of My Favorite Reads in 2015!
If you know me you know I'm an avid reader. I fell short of my dream of 100 books this year. Probably by about half. Oy. That's bad for me. I'm usually in the 60s, at least! (Or not, it's been a slow couple of years.) But this year was a year of amazing rea...

Keep Our Babies Safe While They Sleep
If you've ever seen an infant sleep you know that they toss and turn like nobody's business.  And if you've done your research you know that little ones aren't supposed to have blankets in their crib with them - fear of SIDS and other incidents has discoura...

Why I Take So Many Selfies
A friend of mine posted something on Facebook today that struck me as extremely interesting. She asked what people think when they see an Instagram account and the majority of the pictures shared are selfies. The responses were staggering - to me. I'm a sel...

My People.
* I wrote this a few days ago on the anniversary of my grandmother's passing. It is only now that I've finished it and felt it ready to share.* Do you ever have days where you just need your people? I have people in a number of places. I have women in my li...

Why I Don't Make Resolutions.
It's a new year and I haven't been here in a week or so. I'm not sure what's kept me away. It's a combination of working a bit, and trying to write and get my words out there - in other places - but I'm not really doing that, either. I had made a small goal...

Sit Down And Write, Even When You Have Nothing To Say.
I've been missing. I have not posted in a week and I realized that just now when I went to look at my own blog. And coming off of a November full of posts? That kind of sucks. But ... I've been working and editing and writing and whatnot. But ... I've been ...

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?
