27 Dresses

Once upon a time, a little girl dreamed of owning 27 dresses. Yep, that would be my five-year-old daughter, Bunny. She is the world’s girliest girl, or at least the girliest girl in my world.… Continue

The Absence of Friendship

I have a lot in my life and I am very blessed. I have a man who adores me, I have two beautiful daughters, I have my health and I am truly happy. But there is one thing in my life that is missing, not exactly missing, just not something I have close by. Girlfriends.… Continue

Never Too Old

I did something this weekend that I have never done before…I went to my first rock concert. Yes, you heard that right…I have never been to a concert before. What concert was my cherry concert? Paul McCartney.… Continue

Tramp Stamp...N'Awlin's Style

Well, I did it. I got a tattoo. Sending a huge thanks to everyone who weighed in on whether I should get one or not in To Tattoo Or Not. It was icing on the cake. The experience was great, memorable, and painful. The pain was to be expected.… Continue

A Sailor's Hat

Starting college was really difficult for me. As you might have read in A Curtain of Shyness, I am painfully shy and going away to college was going to provide ample challenges beyond learning and studying. I was excited to go away to… Continue

My Crack Cocaine

OK, before you go getting you panties in a wad, I am not a drug addict. I have never snorted cocaine and I have never smoked crack, but I do have an addiction…books. Love them! My favorite thing is a trip to the bookstore. I love the big bookstores like Barnes & Noble. I find small, independent bookstores to be quaint and I love the feel… Continue

Leap of Faith

There are few things in life that require us to close our eyes, hold our breath and leap. Very few. Most every decision we make in our life, we have the ability to make informed decisions. What do I want to be when we grow up? Should I take a job with that particular company? Do I really want to marry this guy?… Continue

Random Act of Kindness

I came face to face with old age today. Not mine, but an elderly woman who was wandering in the middle of the road…a road with a speed limit of 50/mph. I was driving along, a bit over the speed limit, when I noticed something blue in the road. My first thought was it was a construction worker, but there was no road construction. My second… Continue

I Go, We Go, Let's All Go Yugo

I am not afraid to admit that the first car I ever bought was a Yugo. That right, a Zastava Koral direct from Yugoslavia. It was blue and it was 1987.… Continue

Fat Jeans...We All Have Them

s I write this, I am jetting through the friendly skies having spent a fabulous weekend with my husband in New Orleans. As predicted inLaissez Le Bon Temps Rouler, there was an abundance of phenomenal food, no lack of cocktails, sweat soaked clothes because of the hot and sultry weather, and of… Continue

Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler

Colby and I are leaving this morning for New Orleans. The Big Easy is a very special place for us. On June 21, 2003 we were married in Jackson Square in the middle of the French Quarter. Every year for our anniversary we celebrate by visiting the birth city of our marriage. Some years we’ve had to go before our anniversary and other years… Continue

A Walk In My Grandmother's Shoes

I am a child of the ‘60’s. I was born three weeks after President Kennedy was assassinated. I grew up during the Johnson administration, the Vietnam War, Neil Armstrong walking on the moon and the Brady Bunch. But I have found myself lately wondering what life was like before all that…before television and electrical appliances and… Continue

To Tattoo Or Not

I have a dilemma. I want to get a tattoo. The perfect little Fleur de Lis on my ankle, but I am getting mixed support from my

family, and I can’t quite make up my mind.





See, I already have a tattoo…three to be exact, but I don’t count my tattooed nipples because that’s more reconstructive than self-expression. My tattoo is a

pink breast cancer ribbon tattooed above my right breast…the side I had…

Move Over Tennis Elbow...Here Comes Zucchini Shoulder

I have been pretty active my entire life and I have had my share of activity related injuries. As you may know, I am a 14-year breast cancer survivor and along with breast cancer comes a lot of surgeries…four major reconstructive surgeries to be exact. By the way…my breasts are stunning…thank you for asking. But for every surgery to fix… Continue

The Sea of Estrogen

We are a house of women. Well, Colby is a guy…but he is the only one. I often make fun of Colby for being the only man in a house of women. I kid him about living in a sea of estrogen and how he feasibly could have a wife in menopause while having daughters going through puberty. In a word…he is screwed.… Continue

A Curtain of Shyness

When people actually meet me, the last word they would use to describe me is ”shy.” Vivacious might be a good one, or outgoing, maybe confident…but never shy. I am the person that will walk into a cocktail party, chat up total strangers and have many acquaintances by the end of the night if not a best friend. But I hate doing it. I am the… Continue

The Lone Hearse

I was driving to the pool this morning for Bunny’s swimming lesson, when we passed the funeral home. It was a little before 10:00a and the parking lot was packed. I said out loud to no one in particular, “Funeral today.” Elle looked at me funny and asked what I was talking about. I repeated, “Funeral, today. We are passing the funeral… Continue

Lay Tour Day France

I am not the biggest sports fan in the world. I know the basics of football and basketball. I would much rather watch college sports then professional. I understand the very basics of soccer and hockey, but don’t even ask me about cricket…although does cricket really count as a sport? Any game that lasts four days really shouldn’t be… Continue

Scared Sleepless

I am not the greatest sleeper in the world. According to my husband(s), I toss and turn and jerk and spin. I will admit to being a light sleeper…which is funny because I was the kindergartener

that fell asleep before my mom could feed me lunch.yes""> But for all its lightness…I love to sleep.





I am protective of my sleep. Until a year ago, I didn’t sleep for 13 years due to…
