Ms. Published Mama? Pinch me, now.

I have lost myself again. I am 10 pages deep into a journal from the 11th grade. I snap myself out of my self-induced memory trip, thank the cosmos for letting me survive high school, and then stuff the journal tightly into the last open space in the box. It fits perfectly next to the […]

Katie’s Story

September 15, 2009

I used to talk to myself in the shower. Now, I do it here. I left my husband when my son was just four months old. I started this blog about being a single mom, one year later. During that first year, I was hunting – searching for someone to rescue me. Then something happened. […]
