Dear parent(s) of the girl with the perfect brown curls in the pick-up line, We talk about bullying so often these days, and rightly so. I’m trying to raise my kids to know better and do better, as so many of us are. I’m sure you are, too. It’s just that we never know for […]
Some women inhabit their bodies on a regular basis. They’re in touch with their physicality and they move through the world aware of themselves and the space they inhabit. Not me. I live in my head, not in my body. Rather than inhabiting actual space and time, I construct my own reality in my mind. […]
There’s always an occasion to celebrate: baby showers, engagements, birthday parties, and girls’ nights out. It’s pretty easy to find a location for a kid’s party, but adults are a bit trickier.

My husband is my best friend. I said it. I’ve seen blogs that suggest he shouldn’t be. I get why he shouldn’t be. But here’s why he is. And why yours should be, too. 1. You live with them. They see you at your ultimate worst. Bed head, morning breath. The morning after being up […]

One of my favorite things about living with my family in Knoxville is having such a wide variety of fun things to do with them. We are big fans of our downtown area and love to spend time wandering through festivals that fill the one-way streets in the summer and skating on the outdoor rink […]
My son is seven. Among many things, he is funny, athletic, creative, and brave. He could dribble a soccer ball as soon as he could walk, and at seven, he can easily throw a football 25 yards in a perfect spiral. He blows through his math work and has better handwriting than his almost-10-year-old sister. He […]
Baby bump and all, it’s no wonder Wonder Woman led the movie box office to over $816M. If you have not yet watched this new Wonder Woman action-packed film, go watch it. I promise you will come out of the movie theater ready to take on the world. In my opinion Gal Gadot, the first […]
There is nothing more exciting than when a favorite book gets turned into a tv show or movie. Okay, maybe the birth of a child. Or when said child successfully potty trains. Or when said child can finally get snacks by themselves…but I digress. I like to keep an eye out for any book I […]
My kids don’t sleep. In fact, I’ve had fewer than seven uninterrupted nights of sleep since the birth of my first child nearly five years ago. It sounds exaggerated, but its true. I’ve only been away from them for two nights, and they’ve both slept through the night only a few times. I typically get […]
