Love from a reader and another single mom.

March 15, 2013

I love hearing from you, my readers. I receive so many, it is hard to respond to all of them. Know that I do try. This email from Madison had to be shared. The fact that my blog helps all of you feel more confident, empowered, and inspired fills me with so much hope and […]

Which is worse? Single motherhood or an unhappy marriage?

December 9, 2012

This is a question I have attempted to address head on in several past posts. But now that I am blogging here less frequently and spending all of my blogging energy on Beauty and the Biker, I wanted to leave a post up for a while that would spark comments and hopefully a vibrant discussion. […]

New Leaf Necklaces (the Next Generation)

November 18, 2012

Designed by me this time, inspired by you.  The new leaf necklaces are upgraded and made with pure sterling silver and 14K gold charms. And from what I can tell, the only jewelry created just for single mothers. We all wear them together and I believe they give us strength and inspiration. Even if we […]

Losing you has been quite the gain…

May 23, 2012

So, a few weeks ago we had a house guest… Courtney Patton, one of Seth’s many Twitter connections. From Texas and in town for a convention, all the way up North, here in Ohio, she came to our door with an armful of sunflowers and wine. But we skipped the wine and went straight for […]

Kissing in front of the kids (gasp).

January 24, 2012

I know I will get blasted for this one. But, whatever, bring on the hate. This is reality, this is love and this is modern parenthood. We both put our children first and care about them more than anything in the world. What’s the most amazing of all is how much we have all fallen […]

New year. New job?

January 14, 2012

Three years ago this May I quit my day job. Some of you called me crazy, but most of you were cheering me on. I was “crazy” I guess. I left a solid career at a solid advertising agency during a recession to chase a dream of working for myself. Why? Because I was tired […]

I need a wife.

September 11, 2011

There is a blog post here. In my head. But I don’t have time to write it. Darn it. I can’t believe I still have readers when I barely have time to write anymore. Such a bummer. But last week I hired a Business Manager and Client Services Director. My secret to success? Keep hiring […]

June 10, 2011

This one is from Jen, a single mom who has all of the chemistry a girl can dream of with man who is not financially responsible. Her question in a nutshell is – “We have this amazing chemistry, but what about his financial instability? Can I overlook that? And is this the last time I […]

A very good question.

January 10, 2011

Had to pull out this fantastic comment from Sara to my last post. “Does it bother you that John is probably reading all this right now? That’s the first thing I thought of when I read your post about the break up. Do you sometimes find yourself writing things in these past few posts for […]

From Break Up Land

January 6, 2011

The one thing I absolutely love about owning a Web design, SEO and Social Media business is the variety of people I meet and interact with every day. First, there are the three guys in my office. Their humor throughout this entire thing has been incredible and I don’t feel alone in the least. However, […]
