I turned “I can’t” into “I did” (without vomiting)

Three years ago, I sat at a table with a successful, smart, genuine woman at the BlogHer conference. I met many amazing women that weekend but this one said something to me that I’ve held close ever since. Her blog was huge, she was traveling the world sharing her message, and she had a book […]

My Impostor Syndrome Workshop at the DU Women’s Conference

If you haven’t used Powerpoint in over ten years and if you’re giving a 90-minute talk for the first since, well, ever, then there are no words to explain how highly I’d recommend choosing Impostor Syndrome as your topic. If you don’t know what Impostor Syndrome is, in a nutshell, it’s a fancy way of […]

Win a Copy of There’s No Room For Fear in a Burley Trailer

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m giving away a copy of my book, There’s No Room For Fear in a Burley Trailer. I admit I love Valentine’s Day. Certainly I’ve had my share of shitty Valentine’s Days, like the one when I went out with my hot best friend and every guy at the bar wanted to talk […]

The Story Behind There’s No Room for Fear in a Burley Trailer

Not long after Dan and I met, he said, “It would be so fun to publish a book of your best blog posts.” I said, “Yeah!” And then after I thought about it some more, I said “No!” Dan kept bugging me about it, and I kept saying no, and after a while he started […]

The Epic Toy Purge That Changed My Life

Recently, a friend invited me over for a playdate. It was fun. We chatted and drank coffee while our kids played. And, it totally changed my life. My friend’s house was just like mine, only smaller. And she had waaaay less toys. She also has two girls who are the same ages as mine, who are […]

This is the second of a two-part series on my experience with NaNoWriMo (aka National Novel Writing Month, which is November). You can read my the first one, where I talk about how I did it here. In November 2013 a friend and I dared each other to take on NaNoWriMo, which requires you to write […]

My Story + British Accent = Awesome

It was super exciting when I found out my my flash fiction piece, “A Gorgeous Day to Fly” made the Mash Stories competition short list. If that weren’t enough to make all the happy neurons in my brain dance a jig, a professional narrator read it in a British accent for the Mash Stories podcast!  If […]

This summer…

This summer, I spent time outside nearly every day, taking my kids to the park, the library, the splash pad, swimming lessons, or wherever. Last summer I was stuck inside a lot, looking out the window a lot, nursing my fussy, red-faced newborn, and I was super sad and wanting to go outside but also […]
