Expectations

July 8, 2010

My essay is out. Find it in the August issue of Woman’s Day. There is no online edition of my essay, so you’ll have to pick one up the old-fashioned way. I have been incredibly touched and overwhelmed by the number of e-mails coming in from Woman’s Day readers. Some of you are unhappily married […]

Tisk. Tisk.

May 24, 2010

Many of you choose to write me at times in your life when you need to either say, “I don’t know how I am going to do this,” or “I’ve survived and feel absolutely content.” But every e-mail ends with a thank you. And for that, I can only say – each time – “no, […]

Butterflies vs. Lead Weights

Love

November 2, 2009

In a flurry to find comfortable shoes before I started my new job I found these: And I have been wearing them ever since. They’re by Teva, so they’re beyond comfortable and oh so cute. I found them in a store in Charlottesville but you can also find them on Zappos.com for the lovely price […]

Man things (and a video)

September 30, 2009

I had an amazing day yesterday… not because I am all in love and stuff (although that made it nice too) but because I got to see two of my best single and childless girlfriends. And now I’m wondering what or who I would be without them in my life. First, there’s Alison (who is […]
