I'm beyond honored and thrilled to have my latest story published at Grown and Flown, a wonderful and wise site where parenting never ends. It's a piece about the grueling endeavor of seeing our kids struggle or turn corners and the shiny "nugget" I picked up recently that is helping me stand back before rushing in.

Happy one-year anniversary HERE IN THE MIDDLE: Stories of Love, Loss, and Connection from the Ones Sandwiched in Between.

To each of you in The Sandwich Generation, juggling multiple responsibilities while caring for two generations at once, I want to say this: I know your tireless efforts and worries are often unnoticed. You are the hero nonetheless. It's your love and sacrifice that is this world at its best.

A look inside the wonders of the female brain. I have hope of mine eventually finding its way to a clearing of calm. In the mean time, I'm managing the inner FIZZ POP CRACKLE KABOOM best I know how.

Latest post from Carvings on a Desk:

After a week in tropical paradise and the land of make believe, it's back to real life--a gold gilded vessel of dirty laundry, injustice, and grit that illuminates in a sweep of yellow light. #vacation #backtoreality #reallife #beautyinhumbleplaces

I've decided the life lessons I've gathered so far boil down to one simple analogy (with all due respect to Forrest Gump).
