The Big Picnic

The statistics are sobering: 1 out of 400 children under 18 in the U.S. has diabetes, and nearly 1 in 3 is obese. Anyone who knows me at all knows that this issue hits home; as a mom who’s struggled with body issues and the effects of emotional eating, I’ve tried to raise my kids […]

Apps I Love for Type A Conference Prep

In less than a week I’ll be flying into Atlanta for the first time, and attending Type A Con for the first time. Excited doesn’t even really begin to cover it, especially since I have the distinct honor of being a finalist in the We Still Blog award ceremony, which will be held on Sunday […]

Technically it’s still Monday, at least for the next ten minutes. I’m beginning to think I should have known better than to think I could interrupt an invoice day to make sure I had a post ready; but this is how much I love being able to share these videos every week. I don’t care […]

Listen to Your Mother Monday: Leslie Kohlmeyer

Listen to Your Mother Monday: Katy Jacob

Well, the time is here. Listen to Your Mother videos are up on the Listen to Your Mother YouTube channel. I won’t lie and tell you that I’m thrilled that I’m on video, because, honestly, it makes me a little bit crazy. But what I am happy about is that I can see so many […]

Why I Want to Go to BlogHer13

Why do I want to go to BlogHer13? Oh, so many reasons. 1. Connections matter. There will be so many amazing people at BlogHer; some I’ve met, some I just admire from afar.

I Almost Wish…Listen to Your Mother Let Down

So this is what let down feels like. Last Saturday I stood at a podium and shared my shame with 300 strangers and a handful of friends. I read a piece that’s been not quite 43 years in the making; a piece about my experience as my mother’s daughter and how she shaped me as […]
