Remembering Farmer Jim, esquire
Last August I received one of the hardest writing assignments of my short and rather undistinguished career.  In May, my friend Jim was diagnosed with  acute myeloid Leukemia. By August, it seemed he was having more bad days than good. His wife, Kristi, ask...

Frosty the Snow Squirrels
Yesterday, the weather was downright balmy in the upper 30s, so I did something I hadn't done in months: took a walk around the neighborhood.  The girls ate a lot of questionable snow. The dog barked at buses, joggers and a spunky looking shih tzu. I warned...

A little whining and a little makeover. #writing   #motherhood   #SAHM   #remodel  
Next month it will have been four months sense I left work to stay at home with Lily. Recently, I've found myself feeling left behind by the women I used to work next to who've continued to pursue careers while raising thei...

Preparing for rejecting and praying for success
It's the start of a new year and rather than feeling the hope that accompanies the endless promise of a blank slate, I have this undercurrent of terror that accompanies a blinking cursor on a blank page.  In 2014 without really intending to, I reached a goa...

Wishing it were summer here today
I've seen the sun exactly twice in the past two weeks. And briefly at that.  I feel it's safe to say that most residents of the East Coast are already tired of winter, which is pretty disheartening considering the solstice isn't even for another 10 days. Am...

How our starter home became home
Earlier this week the community manager at real estate platform Urban Compass contacted me about writing a post on my starter home.  Now, there's only been a handful of times (and by handful I'm mean, like, two times*) that a business has reached out to me ...

Why I want my kids to talk to strangers
The other day Brad took the girls to the pet store. While they were checking out various rodents, a woman came up behind them and began talking to the girls about what the rats. "Don't talk to strangers," Lily whispered into her sister's ear. Neither acknow...

Sweet dreams sweet Delaney
Delaney (our cat in the hat).  A few years back we re-inherited a cat Brad had owned in a previous life.  Delaney arrived, a ball of long hair and nerves, and holed up in the basement. We thought her self-imposed quarantine would end at some point. That one...

How to have the best Christmas ever
Lily watches Santa's Marching Band.  It's like having a miniature bell choir in the convenience of your living room. Delightful.   Here it is, just two days before Christmas. The girls are bursting with Christmas spirit. Have been for a month and a half.  T...

Stub story: The Football Game
I'm in a bit of a funk these days. I don't know if it's because I'm in between projects or the impending winter or what, but I haven't really felt much like writing.  But I still feel like I should be writing. And I guess there's no better way to de-funkify...

Here's why you need to do your One Thing
When I finished the first draft of my novel, I basked in the warm glow of that success for, oh, a week or two, before I realized it was hardly finished. Not by a long shot. I mean, even as I typed the "The End" at the end, I knew it wasn't what I wanted it ...

Story
Tagline
Mom. Journalist. Blogger. Wannabe novelist.
Introduction
When I'm not feeding, clothing, bathing, changing, entertaining and otherwise raising my two little girls, I write for my local newspaper, blog for various websites and make up increasingly lame reasons for why I'm not finishing my novel.

Bragging rights
In sixth grade I took first place in a speed jumping contest. To this day it is the only blue ribbon I have for sporting pursuits.
