I’m not ashamed about aging. In fact, I make it a point to celebrate it every March. And by celebrate it I mean bemoan the fact and complain about neck wrinkles and failing eyesight and a horrifying intolerance to drinking after 10 p.m. before doing a quick 180 and offering up gratefulness for all of the […]

For the past five years that I’ve had this little blog, I’ve reposted this story on 9/11. Why? Because we all have our stories from that horrific day, and despite how much we’d like to, we can’t make them change. And because as the years fly by, it’s important to remember not only how things changed that […]

Last week my husband left for a nine day business trip in China. However you want to pronounce it, all I know is this: It’s the longest — in both miles and minutes — we’ve been apart in about 27 years. In our defense, we’re not big travelers. Or live exciting lives. But really, when my husband […]

You guys, this day. IT’S GORGEOUS. So naturally, I’m sitting inside telling you about it. But don’t worry, I have plans. Big ones, in fact. Outside.

You might want to put on a cute little mask before reading this, you guys, because I seem to have let more than a little dust settle on the blog over the past few weeks. And by few weeks I mean a solid month. What, you didn’t notice? It’s okay, I didn’t really either. Obviously. […]

You guys. I could show you this first picture and call the Favorites over for the week, but since I’ve neglected them lately I won’t do that to the hundreds 18 of you who enjoy them. But really, for the past four days we’ve been warned by all the weathermen, apps, and websites to prepare […]

Happy Friday! Because it’s inauguration day and many of you are losing your freaking minds for one reason or another (and this I know because I’ve just come from Facebook which I’ve vowed to not look at again for the next two days — or four years — because of all the hate, anger, despair, […]

If you read the blog it’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the […]

To be clear, the ‘sort of’ goes with the ‘stylish’ part of the title of this post. The ‘suddenly’ is totally and 100% sudden. Because I’ve never been all that stylish, in case you need it spelled out for you. As some (12) of you might remember, two months ago I spontaneously got a job […]
