Money, money, money

August 20, 2012

This blog was always a place for me to share my perspective on dating and relationships. I never touched on the financials of being a single mom. This, in spite of the fact, that I recovered from the financial devastation of a divorce while also recovering emotionally. I now have my own business and am […]

Believe again.

May 31, 2012

Can you? I know it’s hard. But try… for the kids. I think you can. I think you can. I know you can. You are all single mothers, so I know you don’t have to look far for inspiration. Your children are right there, inspiring you every day with their energy for life, their pure […]

I don’t want a naked Cowboy.

March 20, 2012

When we left for Texas Benjamin had a specific request – a cowboy doll and an Indian doll. He described the dolls he had never really seen in great detail. They would be about 10 inches tall and they could move and shoot things. I put two and two together and realized later that he’d […]

In Texas…

March 15, 2012

I did not take nearly enough photographs. I was too busy enjoying … everything. The SXSW Interactive Festival was a mad house. Too busy. Too big. Yes. But, still, the spirit of SXSWi lives on in that every one there is a part of something greater, coming together to celebrate another year of doing what […]

A love letter.

February 14, 2012

I don’t tell you how often I love you. But, I should. Because without you, I wouldn’t be here. When I left him, I left you. And while Athens was my refuge, you were here waiting for me to come back. And when I did – we flourished, little Benjamin and I. The reasons? I […]

My apologies to NYC.

November 28, 2011

I have an apology to make to New York City. I am sorry for doubting you and jumping to conclusions after my last visit. I’m not sure what happened, maybe it was the hot weather (100+) and the wrong neighborhood choice (Times Square), but this time I had a completely different experience. We were in […]

The fearless

September 29, 2011

Benjamin and his bud Bert jump out of the car. We’ve pulled up to the most exciting place on Earth. The Eagle Creek Leadership and Challenge Center to you and I, but to Benjamin and Bertie this is where Thomas and Calvin’s grandpa lives. Thomas and Calvin are quite possibly the cutest brothers you’ll ever […]

My Neighbor.

August 17, 2011

She has been living next to us this entire time. Just a few feet away, in a house so quiet that I was beginning to wonder if anyone lived there at all. And then, one day, I saw her. Out on her front porch saying good bye to visitors. I dropped the shovel and walked […]

In need of putty.

August 7, 2011

My mother, a bona fide thrift expert, a finder of all things worth finding, hands me a copy of Gloria Steinem‘s Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem. “I got it for free,” she says, “Isn’t that amazing? And I’ve always wanted to read it.” I pick up the book and open the cover. I […]

Montana, cont.

July 19, 2011

Montana blew up my computer. The battery literally overheated and popped out of the laptop. These were the photos I couldn’t upload. Can you see why they were worth the wait? This is on the dock outside of our hotel, the Many Glacier. And this is what Benjamin looks like when he’s cracking up. I […]
