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 Second TV Appearance (hello maturity, goodbye flippers)

The first time I was on TV, the local news interviewed me in a Stop and Shop parking lot while I used a flipper to clear snow from my windshield during a blizzard. The roads were so bad, I didn’t get home in time to watch the evening news. My disappointment over missing my debut […]

I am a Recovered Impostor Syndrome Sufferer

When I was a kid, I hated sports. I dreaded gym class. I was picked last for every team. I flinched when anything smaller than a soccer ball came near me. Or not near me. And if we’re being honest, it wasn’t just the smaller balls that gave me panic attacks; dodge balls, volleyballs, and tetherballs terrified […]

The Lessons I Never Expected Canva to Teach Me

This is not a Canva tutorial.  I muddled my way through Canva, using mostly trial and error, and I have created a total of one hopefully share-able graphic. Dan is really good at computers. I’m not. Ever since I met him, he’s taken on the role of 24 hour on call technical support person. There […]

Just A Basement

For the last few days, Sweet Pea has been obsessed with my old charm necklace and a My Little Pony, or “hush.” (In case you’re not bilingual- that’s toddler-speak for horse). I found these relics of the 80’s when I was schlepping load upon load of stuff up from our basement to higher ground, as […]

I Love the Gas Card Scene But That’s Not Why Reality Bites is my Favorite Movie

My favorite movie of all time would have to be Reality Bites. Not because Ethan Hawke is so sexy (although he is) and not because Winona Ryder is so beautiful and gosh darn likeable (which she most certainly is) or even because of the scene where she and Janean Garofalo dance to “My Sharona.” (while […]
