When my kids were 8 and 6, this woman annoyed the crap out of me. So I tried getting into her head.

A swirl of emotions about her grown son's reunion with his birth mom.
"I'm happy for my son and his birth mom about their adoption reunion, with mixed emotions, for myself. How much of my emotions should I let him see?"

Jessica straddles two sides of The Adoption Wait: waiting to get picked as parents -- and waiting to be matched as embryo donors. Here's her evolution of openness.

No matter how many times I walk my neighborhood, I always find new and interesting things to notice. In this case, something broken but beautiful.

Stop the first ten women you meet in the street and ask them for their least favorite clothing item to shop for. Eight of them will say “swimsuits.” But, bikinis aside (since most boomers haven’t tried one on since 1989), even well-cut, one-piece swimsuits have a way of outing our last dozen diet failures and …

I had the pleasure of working with Bryan West on trying out a SmileBrilliant TeethWhitening Kit and offering a giveaway on my review blog. The product lived up to the expectations I had, and Bryan was wonderful to deal with. He was personable, stayed in touch to the appropriate degree, and was always kind and professional. It has been a very positive experience, and I have a whiter smile to boot!

Katie led me through my first Pilates class expertly. She knew exactly how hard to work me so that I could find my edge -- to be challenged but also experience success. The studio is clean and bright, the machines well-maintained and also clean. I highly recommend Personal Pilates Plus. Disclosure: I assist with social media for Personal Pilates Plus. I love representing such a wonderful organization.
