Love, Sandwich Style

I just sat in on Heather King and Vikki Reich‘s TypeA Conference hands-on session about free writing. Love. It was what I imagine therapy should be; all about raw emotion, Anne Lamott and how to write from the heart.  Before they encouraged us to write, they said something that really resonated with me: start with […]

Listen to Your Mother Monday: Sarah Guthrie

There are a million little moments that come together to make a production like Listen to Your Mother happen. Each cast, in each city, is comprised of unique women with different experiences, different outlooks on life and different life experiences. Sitting on the stage that light last May, I was overcome with how our stories […]

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 […]

Guest Posting at Things I Can’t Say

I’m excited to be guest posting today at Shell’s place. I’m talking about a new role I’ve recently assumed: Girl Scout troop leader. Like so many other things in my life these days, it starts as a mother/daughter thing (sigh. I wonder if we ever get over that whole ‘I am my mother’s daughter’ thing) […]

Listen to Your Mother Monday: Kristin Shaw

It’s Monday, so it’s time to listen to our mothers. I can’t remember if it was the ever cool Greta or my sweet friend Ashley who suggested this reading when I put out a ‘help me pick a few of your favorites to feature’ plea not too long ago. I know that more than one […]

Listen to Your Mother Monday: Sarah Manley

It’s not often I get rubbed by a pinup girl. Then again, the night of Listen to Your Mother wasn’t just any night, and Sarah “Sam” Manley isn’t just any pinup girl. I knew her name, of course, before we met; she’s a blogger rock star that had landed on The Today Show, GMA and […]

It Wasn’t Really About the Tea

“Can I taste your tea?” she asked as she pulled away from her after school hug. It’s a novelty, I’m sure, because she’s never seen me with a great big tumbler of anything other than the dark, cloyingly sweet Diet Dr. Pepper that I’ve been drinking like water all these years. It should have been […]

August Moon 2013…Tears

I told myself I’d get to bed early. It’s been one of those days, filled with emotion and busyness and errands and work, and I’m just tired. I told myself that if I went to bed early enough tonight, I’d be able to get up and get twice as much done tomorrow, which is exactly […]

Listen to Your Mother Monday: Marinka

So today I’ve been stalking Marinka. We’ve never met, but she was in the 2013 NYC cast of Listen to Your Mother and as I watched videos I couldn’t help but watch hers twice. She’s funny! For the record, I think she should give tips to the other mothers even if no one explicitly asks. […]
