5 Reasons Why I've Given Up Alcohol for One Year.
So. It's been five months. Five months without a lick of booze. And I feel good about this experiment even though it's really really brutal and annoying at times. Something I've realized, and really c...

It took guts to publish this today. But I did it. And I'm so happy I did.

I did something on Friday. Something really good, something maybe quite stupid. That something? I told the truth.
So. In case you missed it, I did something either pretty cool or positively dunderheaded (a beloved Dad word) on Friday. That something I did? I told the

On ignorance, bliss, booze and bad outfits. In other words: College.
These days, I have been thinking a lot about college. You see, I am knee deep in the writing of my next novel which is about three women who met in

My miscarriage story is up on the front page of HuffPost Parents. So humbled to have a chance to share my experience and read so many similar stories in the comments section. I'm realizing something: Sharing stories, even the hard ones, especially the hard ones, is so so important.

I sat there. Shaking. Smiling. Knowing that this is important, and interesting. {On announcing my plan to give up alcohol for a year...}

I can so relate to this post Aidan. I limit myself to one or two glasses a week max. A couple of years ago, I dedicated myself to living a healthier life and that meant giving up alcohol. I like my one glass of red and then I am done. I am happier, healthier, and a better role model for my kids. I also realized I am still pretty damn cool without it. I salute you and cheer you on from afar.

My girls. Dancing and prancing. Smiling and sobbing. A twirly, swirly mess of soft skin and tiny toes and Dora Band-Aids and splattered sweet potatoes... This? This is what it is all about. That much I know.
I admit it: Yesterday's post was a bit heavy. And that makes sense. Its words fell from a heavy place. I didn't mean to be overly dramatic, or cryptic, or
