Writing prompt instructions:
This week we're going to switch gears and write a little poetry. Writing poetry helps us work on cadence and rhythm which can make for better fiction. So by flexing our poetry muscles, we can in turn create more fluid fictional pieces. Please write a narrative poem that focuses on the workings of a family, whether it be your own or one that you've created from scratch. Good… Continue

Zacomania keeps spreading fast, and throngs of Zac-struck moms join
their afflicted daughters in Efron worshipping.
I've caught this
powerful Zac bug myself ,when flipping through the channels one night I

Or Queen. Although even in my fantasies, I only ever make it into the kingdom as far as a court jester. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, I make it in as a royal loaf of bread.
However, as I mentioned in my last post, I did
get the "One Lovely Blog" award from the always ever so thoughtful Marieke
. Go visit her and say hi! She's one blogger… Continue

Moms, we simply cannot get enough love, especially summer love. Maybe it's because summer love feels friendlier when we are walking to the beach carrying a chair, a favorite book and an iPod to keep our own delicious thoughts company. Seriously, don't your olfactory sensibilities become completely engaged with fresh suntan lotion? The smell of Coppertone and I'm 13 all over again.
Summer sea breezes make most of us swoon. Shakespeare's famous, "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?… Continue

Things “They” Never Tell You…
As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on… Continue

First of all, I want to thank all of the ladies who replied to my last
blog! It was hard to even begin to know how to respond to the comments
individually simply because I feel like the responses only enhanced my
post and really have become almost an extension to the entry. I read
each one, nodding my head, and thinking to myself, "Oh ABSOLUTELY!"... Click here to read more...

This weekend is our one year wedding anniversary – we’ve only been married for a year, but living together for six. We wanted to get out of Southern Hell and closer to home before we tied the knot – then I up and got pregnant, that delayed things oh, about 10 months. We were thinking Continue

I have never had a dog before. Until the scrawniest, scraggliest, mutt showed up on our doorstep right before Thanksgiving. Continue
Evidently, he followed Elle home one afternoon and refused to leave our
front porch. I told Elle to leave
him alone and he would leave. But
all evening he sat in front of our door and wouldn’t leave. Every time we would tiptoe to the door
and look through the glass, the saddest brown eyes…

That lil card inside DJs lunchbox, there? That's from a box of cards I bought at Starbucks. They're love notes for children--in simple words--of how special & loved they are.
