Action Plan to a Better Me

When I look in the mirror, I don’t recognize myself these days. I look dull, shabby, tired. Maybe it’s being spit up on daily by an 8-month-old, non-napping, not interested in solids, teething baby, but I feel like I need a change. I’m in a rut and I need to get back to the me […]

Reflecting on my Last Thirty Years… Mom Edition

Last month something monumental happened in my life… I turned 30. This is something I had been dreading basically since I turned 21 a decade ago. Wasn’t I just turning 25 and celebrating a quarter of a century? Cue all of the balloons/tears/wine. For whatever reason, as a woman, 30 seems to be the “big […]

Alcohol Awareness Month: What are you running to?

April is National Alcohol Awareness Month, which causes me to take a not-so-fond journey down memory lane. It’s likely that I’m the only writer for this blog to have been through an “intervention.” Not as a participant, but as the focus of one. I’ve been sober for two years and while the detour my life […]

Selfishness: how it serves my family and makes me a stronger woman

I have a post-it note on my refrigerator right now that says “Stop Apologizing.” I wrote it pre-baby and have carried this reminder in some format much of my adult life. I was the girl who apologized when someone ran into me and the one that prefaced everything I said in hopes of preventing someone’s […]

Entering a Season of Rest

It’s been a tough year…or two or three. My definition of rest has changed, especially since having a child. I have fond pre-motherhood memories of actually taking a nap on the couch to get some rest. I used to spend my weekends resting after a long week at the office by lounging around in my […]

Give Peace a Chance

I’ve never really been a fan of “themes.” You’d never guess it, since I’ve thrown some pretty epic theme parties in my days (read: “Tour de Franzia”). But it’s true–I don’t like “theme-decorated” rooms or “theme-dinners” or “theme-weeks” at school or work. In fact, it’s pretty difficult for me to settle on just one “theme” […]
