Procrastination rocks
My sister Sarah shared this very cool video with me earlier this week: Somehow, even an hour and half away, she must've known I've been a little … well … neglectful of current projects. Lately, procrastination has made itself quite comfortable in my house. ...

The day I stumbled into a squirrel's nest
What's a squirrel gotta do to get a pina colada around here? So what's more amusing than someone dressing up a pair of stone squirrels in seasonally themed regalia?  What about someone dressing up actual squirrels in seasonally themed regalia?  Meet Penn St...

Finding grace and trying to embrace the permanent present
So during a yoga class last week there was this first-timer -- a lithe woman in her 60s or early 70s whose daughter talked her into trying out a class while she was visiting from Georgia. She kept announced that she had no idea what she was doing (while ben...

Seasons come, seasons go and my how these little ones grow
We're all sick this week. The house littered with tissues, reverberating from coughing and moody from too many nights of restless sleep. My shoulders and jeans are streaked with snail trails of snot as Lily and Jovie use me as an oversized mobile wiping uni...

Feeling jealous of the imagination of others ...
When I was little I read a lot of fantasy. I loved when an author could build an entire world and then whisk me away to it in a way that felt so tangible, for a while I thought any closet in my house had the potential to lead...

When stick horse heads attack
"So have you worked on your novel at all recently," a friend asked today. The answer to that question is no. No, I haven't worked on it recently. I haven't even opened the story file in weeks. I've avoided even thinking about it this week -- even though I'v...

Trying to make sense of a life cut short
Gabe and me at Dork Camp in summer 1998. (with evidence that our friend Steve, right, was a photo bomb pioneer). The summer before my junior year of high school I went to a summer camp for nerds at UVA where I developed a small crush on a boy named Gabe.  A...

Goodbye winter: A story in picture
It's been a long winter. The kind that Laura Ingalls Wilder writes about in "Little House in the Prairie" with bitter winds, finger-numbing cold and mountains of snow (albeit without the luxuries of a central heating system, access to such stimulating diver...

The time I pretended to have coffee with Justin Timberlake
Courtesy of OiMax /Flickr So I had this dream the other night where by some strange circumstance (do you even need to say that in reference to dreams?) I was offering Justin Timberlake a critique of his recent appearance on "The Tonight Show" "You're a grea...

Storytelling as magic and magic as storytelling
When I was little I read a lot of fantasy. I loved when an author could build an entire world and then whisk me away to it in a way that felt so tangible, for a while I thought any closet in my house had the potential to lead me to Narnia. And I was devasta...

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.
