The Friday Favorites have been hijacked this week by something that might very well trump the next month of them. Or six. Yesterday I found out I am a New York Times best selling author. Um, excuse me? No, no, no. You heard me right. A NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR!! Seriously, one minute […]

46. Forty-six. XLVI. Quarante-six. (Damn, even in French it sounds old.) Tomorrow I will be 46. What. The. Hell. Like I always say about my children, I blinked and it happened.

About an hour ago I posted this on Facebook: Since then I’ve searched for — and found — the green apple candle I decided I needed to light rightthisverysecond, brushed the cat (because obviously she needed it […]
