To Lisa, With Love, On The Occasion of Your Commissioning

This is the first of a new series of public love letters I’m writing to people in my life, based loosely on the idea of Love Bombs, as articulated by the exquisite Melissa Meyers.

On (Not) Being Beautiful

I was hashing this out with my darling friend Maria, whose perspective is delightfully different from my own, and it struck such a note with my soul that I thought I should share it here. Maybe it will speak to you. Maybe it won’t. But this is me. Let me start by saying that I […]

I’ve been struggling to write this post for days and days now. I’ve started and deleted it more times than usually happens. How do I talk about the decision to adopt? To become a single parent? To do so despite all the things that are going on in my life? There’s a lot of things […]

I don’t think I even logged into my own blog in April. It was just.that.busy. Now there’s so much to talk about that I’ve not been able to write because I don’t quite know where to start. My friend Katherine does a cool thing with lists on her blog. She uses them to drop in […]
