Myrtle Beach

July 2, 2012

After our flight, and after they’ve examined every inch of the suite, the kids are bursting with excitement to get down to the ocean. Seth takes them right away and I dive into the big, cozy bed. A few minutes later, I am sound asleep. The ocean right there. Loud, intrusive and extremely humbling. Nature’s […]

On the beach.

June 9, 2012

I just disappeared from this great, wide thing we call the Internet for six entire days. Typically, I live and die by my inbox. But not this week. Nope. With the exception of my Instagram and a few Facebook updates, it was all beach and all family all week. No business. No email. No blogging. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Never say never

April 11, 2010

If you would have asked me one year ago if I’d a) fall in love with a man or b) actually be caught dead on a golf course, or in this case a driving range; I would have clocked you silly on both counts. But you would have been right. Exhibit a) The man, the […]

The seashore

April 8, 2010

After a pit stop in Charlottesville, Virgnia to see my little sister who had went out of her sweet way to get me a few 31st birthday presents and even make me a cake John and I made it to Tybee Island in Georgia. Like fish out of water, or washed up jelly fish buried […]

“This isn’t working is it?” “No, it’s not,” John answers. Working together, in the same office, just two feet away from each other had been talking it’s toll on John and I’s relationship. My boyfriend had been replaced with a co-worker and we couldn’t break the two, draw the lines, separate work from play. Starting […]

November 5, 2009

The plane lands with a jerk as I reach under the seat to rescue my purse from its lonely spot on the floor. I stretch my fingers into the darkness hoping my purse is the only thing I find. This is the last leg on a whirlwind of business trips. The first one to Baltimore […]
