On Dust and Its Removal

April 4, 2013

3 Comments

Dust. It’s everywhere around here. On these pages, in my head, in my joints. Tiny collections of the past that should weigh nothing but combined it’s an army that blankets, its presence a reminder of things undone or unsaid or uncommitted to. As a kid we had chores on weekends and my favorite one was […]

Tattoo Fascination

February 4, 2013

6 Comments

I have a confession: Tattoos sort of fascinate me. I’m not entirely sure why, but I think it lies somewhere between the story behind them and the permanence of them. (Unless, of course, it was a drunken college moment you endlessly regret later – then it’s just funny.) I’ve never gotten one because of faith-based […]

Cutting It Off

I am on a quest. I am on a quest that is requiring more courage than I ever thought I’d need, quite frankly, and it’s making me think entirely too hard about why that is. You see, I want to cut my hair. SHUT UP. Right now my hair is the longest it has ever […]

PEOPLE. I have done something truly stupid. Well, not stupid, but slightly ridiculous. For those of you with any sort of longish work history, you’ll get this.

In 1991, I was a senior in college. I had my second real boyfriend and first real love and was about to make my transition into The Real World, whatever that meant, as a new college graduate.  I finally grew into “pretty”, but still struggled with the idea of “sexy” and had exactly zero idea […]

Last week I headed out to the Mom 2.0 Summit – a social media conference and conversation between brands, bloggers and agencies held at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook here is why you MIGHT have hated me last week: Maybe. I had told myself that I was […]

Image via In life you are taught it’s not things that matter – it’s people. It’s shallow to love things. Things don’t wipe your tears, they don’t tell you everything is going to be okay – they don’t love you back. But, the things with meaning, they do remind you of that – of the […]

For the first time in a year, Benjamin was sort of sick. I say sort of because even when he is actually sick he doesn’t really accept that and just marches on as if not much has really changed. He’s kind of tough that way. But at some point this week the body took over […]

[I] am a big fan of ideas. Specifically great ones. What fascinates me even more sometimes is HOW those ideas came to be. I do not believe in the proverbial lightning strike. Great ideas are not random – they come from somewhere. Is there “right place / right time”? Yes. But that doesn’t work without […]
