I am currently reading Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. It is a story about Olympic runner Louis Zamperini and his survival at sea and in Japanese POW camps during WWII. I love books about WWII. I love the romanticism of the times, although I understand that war is hell no matter what…Continue

I have been working hard at trying to keep several truths in the forefront of my mind and soul. These truths are that my husband loves me. My husband is so very unabashedly shameful and sorry for the pain he has caused me and has tried every way and every day to show how sorry he is and how much he loves me.
The painful truth that I am trying to keep OUT of my heart and soul are the facts that while I forgave him, I am still deeply and terribly hurt by his actions. I am…Continue

And that is why I am going to post a gazillion pictures in this post! And you will love them all, just as much if not more than I do. Okay that was a lie, but I think you'll like them. A lot.
Levi has an obsession with shoes. He loves any kind of shoe, especially boots. He's wearing my little sister's faux Uggs.…

Today's Joy of Love assignment was to document Where. Where I fell in love. Where my heart became his. I could have applied this to my kids, but who wants a picture of a yucky delivery room? I'll take sunny California any day. San Diego, where JDubbs and…

Yeah, you think you already know but let me remind you of the rules because the first time your college aged daughter who is beautiful and elegant and brilliant walks in the house with a dweeby little wanna-be artist with a handshake that says "I'm a goober" you'll forget all the rules. You will drag your…Continue

to my husband, Happy Valentine's Day!
Love is patient and kind. (like when you wash the dishes for me that have been in the sink for way too long, even though you cooked dinner)
Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. (like when you affirm me spending time with the chicks so that I can have some girl time) …

At this time of year, I enter a Walmart store and what do I see? I spy stuffed animals of all kinds, some pink, some black, some are monkeys, some are frogs, and some have hearts on them. I also see the greeting cards, pink blankets,…Continue

It’s Valentine’s Day, late 1990s… a young twenty-something couple is still in the bliss of early relationship sexytimes… before the babies, the mortgage, the vomiting dogs… I digress. Our heroine comes home from work a little early, excited for the “something special” her beloved has readied for her on this…

Although my 17 year-old son calls me a “Sexpert”, I’m definitely not one. I have no special sex training or credentials. But, during the last year of writing my column, “Sex & the Suburbs ” for MakeItBetter.net, I’ve interviewed many people…Continue

If I am to be honest, Valentine’s Day is a far bigger deal for my daughters than it is for my husband and me. It seems that the school enjoys promoting this should-be celebration of undying love between two lovers as a vehicle to express friendship between classmates. Although we do not officially celebrate Valentine’s…

How are you? I don't know what the weather is like where you are, but here in New Jersey there is so much snow! I am enjoying it too - it's so pretty. My son and I had a wonderful and fun snow fight while we were shoveling the driveway - a great way to connect with…Continue

With Valentine’s Day around the corner and references to the celebration of love and romance to be seen everywhere, I thought that it was timely to finally read this book that has been – repeatedly – recommended over the years. Before I had my two youngest daughters, a girlfriend mentioned the “must read”…Continue

I've by now heard all this silly controversy over Amy Chau's book Tiger Mom, or whatever it's called. I happened to be at Yale for a book signing so thought I would go meet this woman. I was wearing one of my typical but awesome outfits; straight tight jeans, a very hard to find, but perfect fitting white T, high, black boots, and a black leather jacket.

The kids crept in to wake us up at 6 a.m today, just as they promised.
I'm sure they'd been up much longer, but they know the rules - no one goes downstairs on Christmas morning before 6 a.m.
Soon after, the squeals and oohs and ahhs began. But not for the presents I expected.
The big-ticket items were appreciated, of course. But my son's favorite gift wasn't the Wii game we splurged on. It was a Mario figurine stocking stuffer from Santa. ("It can move its…Continue
