Fourteen Books You Need To Read This Fall
It's almost that time of the year again, everyone!! And no - I don't mean it's almost pumpkin spice time (even though, well, IT IS!). And I also don't mean cooler temps, though I'm ready for those, too. Corn chowder is CALLING me, my friends. Simply calling...

Kim Kardashian West Keeps It Real
I was in the same room as Kim Kardashian West last week. Got your attention, didn't I? I was at BlogHer this past week/weekend thanks to One2One Network. I won a giveaway and when Malia of their team emailed me I thought she was joking. But she was for real...

If I Could Buy All The Dresses ... I'd Buy These.
This is the summer of dresses for me. I'm not sure if it's because I'm doing so much traveling, or because I've lost a substantial amount of weight, or because I'm just finding myself in these certain styles - but no matter what the reason these dresses are...

In Twenty Years, Allison Winn Scotch
I've read several books written by Allison Winn Scotch and I'm a big fan of her work. Which is why when I had the chance to read and review In Twenty Years  (links are affiliate links) for TLC Book Tours I took the opportunity. Winn Scotch has a way of writ...

Motherhood: Simple Joys
We've been running and running this past week. Or at least it seems like it. We did have some downtime over the weekend, so that was good - if not dull, due to overcast skies and whatnot. But today we're home. Me and the kiddo. And the dogs. And cats. But w...

We're All Damaged, Matthew Norman
Something about this book grabbed me from the start. I read the information via TLC Book Tours (they sent me a copy to read and review) and decided I needed to meet the main character, Andy Carter. Now, admittedly, I don't always read books where men are th...

Don't You Cry, by Mary Kubica
Mary Kubica is at it again with her most recent thriller, Don't You Cry. While my favorite of her three books is still The Good Girl, I recently finished reading this one and definitely found my head twisted in several different directions. Oh, as a small d...

Why I Still Attend Blogging Conferences
Blogging conferences mean different things to different people. Just like people have different reasons that they continue to blog. I still blog for so many reasons, but why I do may not be why you do - and that's completely okay. So we take a moment or two...

I Have A Voice
It's been a heck of a week (and then some) in our country. One loss after another and my heart continued to break a little every day. This past weekend my husband and daughter and I took a drive to Virginia and on the way he and I started talking about all ...

Six Powerful Nonfiction Books You Should Be Reading
The following list of books includes some of my favorite fairly intense nonfiction reads. These are not easy stories to fly through. Nor are they entertainingly humorous. They're legitimate memoirs or biographies that will keep your attention and leave you ...

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?
