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 ...

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 ...

Ten Totes That Will Make Your Summer Easier
If you know me you know I'm addicted to bags. Seriously. I want ALL THE BAGS!!! Purses. Totes. Small handbags. Backpacks. All of them. I've also been searching for the perfect tote for - say - oh, about 25 of my 43 years. I'm not kidding. I've had them all....

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...

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...

Motherhood: I'm Keepin It Real
I yell at my child. I do. I did tonight. It broke my heart after I did it. She cried. I cried. But I hit a wall. I just did. I hit a wall and there was no turning back. There was even a damn thrown in there. Not AT her. Not a damn it, or anything. But I thr...

Saving Abby, Steena Holmes
Oh, boy. Saving Abby. This was - as expected - an emotional story. All I need to share to back that up is the line on the back of the book that states: She must make a decision: her life or her child's. And I'm out. I mean, right? What mom really wants to r...

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?
