Pile of gift-wrapped Christmas presents

Our Gift-Giving Makeover

I love gifts. I love choosing, wrapping, and giving gifts. I also love receiving gifts.

Pumpkin spice everything has taken over, Christmas decorations inundate store shelves and retailers are bursting with eagerness to get […]

The Size of my Child is Not Your Concern

I was at Kid City at the Greenwood Community Center the other day (side note: absolutely amazing, cheap place to take a kiddo!) and I overheard a conversation that was pretty familiar for me.

Dear Women I Knew and Judged Before I Became Married with Children:   I am sorry. I judged you.    Now that I have traded my days of single womanhood for married with children and one on the way, I see things a little differently. And I owe the collective lot of you an apology–or […]

Celebrating our (almost) new arrival

Who’s on First?

We recently shared the news with friends and family that we expecting a baby, expanding our family to five (six, if you count the dog). The addition of a biological baby to our family will make us a blended family, in the traditional sense of the phrase. Amidst the general uncertainty that comes with one’s […]

What Representation in the Cosby Show Meant to Me (And Why My Children Will Know)

Let me precede this blog by saying this is not a blog paying homage to Bill Cosby. Straight up, there it is: there’s a difference between Bill and Cliff. But, that’s not what this blog is about. This blog is about representation, and the importance of what it means to see your own experience reflected […]
