Books You Need to Buy Today.
If you follow me on Facebook you know that I've been sharing some great Kindle deals pretty much whenever I find them. So, after stumbling across so many amazing books on sale I decided to create a blog post about them for more detail and easy access. Now -...

Free Write: Travelin' Mama
Yes'm - that's been me the last few weeks. Minus this one. I went to New York. Then to Maine. Then back to New York on the way home. And then I came home and here I am. It's been a weirdly longish and shortish week - being home without my loved ones nearby....

Guest Post: Diane, Picking My Battles
I was truly lucky to meet Diane back in the summer of 2012. We crossed paths on Twitter while attending BlogHer that year. And then we met, briefly. And met again for about a minute. But somehow we connected in a way that established an instant friendship. ...

Recipe Round-Up: Breakfast
I'm in the mood for another recipe round-up post, and lucky for you, this time I'm talking  BREAKFAST! Not only is it the most important meal of the day, it can often be the most delicious one. And even better? Breakfast can also act as dinner - because bre...

I Need To Write.
My last post was almost a week ago. I need to write. I'm feeling it but I'm not. I'm reading a LOT. So that's good. And I'm excited because I'm headed home soon. My kiddo and I will be flying north up to NY and I cannot wait to see family and friends and al...

Let's Talk About Privilege.
I'm quite obviously a white woman. White women have a privilege that women of color do not. Let's face it. We have many. Not just one. Many. The news every single day shows us just how many. But for this post my point is going to focus on postpartum and pre...

Book of the Week: The Coincidence of Coconut Cake, Amy E. Reichert
This book. Ahhhh. This book. The Coincidence of Coconut Cake.    I think I waited too long to read it. It's been sitting around for a few weeks while I traveled and I pretty much devoured it once I started. First of all, look at the cover. Warning: if you h...

Book of the Week: Her Sister's Shoes, Ashley Farley
Her Sister's Shoes by Ashley Farley was a fantastic read. When I had the opportunity to choose this book to review I decided right away that it interested me. I love family stories, relationships and the like, and I thought I'd enjoy learning about the thre...

Guest Post: DJ Kate - Keepin' It Real and Being Brave
My friend Kate is joining me today to talk about something that's more than relevant for so many of us. And if it doesn't impact us directly, it certainly has impacted someone we know and love with our entire heart.  She's talking about Breast Cancer. Breas...

Guest Post: Jessica, Maternal Mental Health Advocate
In case you haven't noticed, I've been posting a lot about postpartum mental health lately. And in doing so I've made reference to Warrior Moms several times. Warrior Moms are the moms I met in Boston. And some of them are mamas I connected with virtually i...

It Happened in Maine.
It's no surprise that all I keep seeing on FB over the last few days is the woman in Maine who yelled at some 21 month old to stop her from crying. She is the owner of a diner that the child and her parents were eating at, and apparently she has no issues w...

This is my Sisterhood.
This. This is what I did this weekend. This is what I absorbed. Learned. Loved. Lived. It is what I saw in every single smile. What I felt in every pair of knowing eyes. What I held in my heart as I hugged mamas who hold the knowledge of what many have live...

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?
