Okay, y’all. I love hot weather. For a time. (Like….four months.) And then I’m over it and tired of sweating and ready for it not to feel like I’m standing on the sun. I’m so glad Fall is HERE! I mean, let’s not pay any attention to the fact that it’ll be back in the mid 80s […]
Dear Joshua, I know “they” say I’m not supposed to shower you with praise and compliments or over inflate your ego lest you become one of the dreaded “entitled millennials” (or whatever generation you are), but I can’t really help it sometimes. You’re going places. I know it. I want you to know that I’m […]
Okay, it’s Wednesday. Right? I’m at Joshua’s swimming lessons, so yes, it must be Wednesday. Let’s do this SOTWW thing. Last week was pretty much a false start for me. I had high hopes of stepping on the scale this morning to find out I had busted my 32 for 31 goal right out of […]
I’m semi-drunk and stuck in the car and thoughts are swirling in my brain and so in order to purge them I’m spilling them here. Happy Thanksgiving. We needed today, mom and me, and my brother, too, and for the most part, today was a great day. But today was hard. It was the first […]
It’s time for another week of State of the Weight Wednesday! State of the Weight is a link-up about more than just the numbers on the scale. It’s about being healthy and making small, weekly changes you can live with. Alright. I’m getting back into the groove of SOTWW. Slowly. I’m down another pound this […]

Sunday, May 12th, is the 5th annual Mother’s Day Rally for Moms’ Mental Health, featuring 24 letters from survivors of PPD, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, depression after weaning and/or postpartum psychosis. Their purpose is to inform […]
So, Emma turned 1, right? I know. I’m trying to pretend it didn’t happen, too. Except it did happen. And we threw her a party. A Pretty Pink Party. The inspiration for a pink birthday party came from a skirt I bought her on a swap page. It was so delicate and this amazing shade […]
The close of 2012 is upon us. Instead of doing crazy things, I’m older now and sort of lame and counting down the minutes until bed time instead of the Times Square ball drop. C’est la vie, right? This morning I decided to dig through the archives on ye olde blog to see what happened […]
I’m recovering from a Christmas hangover. I intended to get this post up yesterday and then got caught in a tornado of wrapping paper and bacon mac. So, better late than never, right? Merry Christmas, y’all.
“Rest and be thankful.” ― William Wadsworth I can think of no better way to have spent today than this. I am thankful. For everything.
