I was grocery shopping today and had the luxury of shopping by myself. While shopping, I saw a dad have a bad parent moment. The dad was on a mission to take his son to the bathroom. While lifting him out of the cart he smacked his son's head on a low door jam. As the dad comforted his son, the parental guilt was all over his face. Instantly, I felt a connection with the dad. I've been there. I've had plenty of bad mommy moments.
I really believe there's been a shift in the American… Continue

I am writing this with the permission of my beautiful sister, Amy.
Several months ago, Amy noticed some changes in her breast. But, she didn't think much of it. Like many women her breasts had always been a little lopsided, so when that increased, it wasn't that concerning to her. She felt some fullness ans soreness, but she had breast fed her son when he was a baby, and the feeling felt similar to when it was time for him to nurse. Her breast looked rashy and was a little itchy, but… Continue

This week at toddler class I sat next to a mom who was taking a photo of her daughter during snack time. She introduced herself as a "crazy photo lady," and I asked if she also made scrapbooks. I do not make scrapbooks (uh, yet), but I have playgroup friends who are very into it. "Crazy photo lady" told me about a children's scrapbook format that has me very, very excited..... making our own children's alphabet books featuring photos of our family!
The idea is to make an ABC or… Continue

As an organizer, I'm a huge proponent of labeling things
...containers, file folders, CDs. While in New York City last fall, I visited not just one, but TWO Container Store
locations. It was a marvelous experience! (We don't have C.S. in Charleston...boo hoo!) Among many other items I took home, there was one that stands out as an all-time fantastic solution:… Continue

I already know my answer...but a lot of women out there have no idea about theirs. For 12 years, I struggled with my weight, I binged, I purged, I didn’t eat, I suffered from chronic IBS, bloating, gas and pain, all I thought about was food, I loathed my body, I loathed myself.
At the time, I had several dietary rules/beliefs:
1. Eat as little fat as possible.
2. No dairy.
3. No meat.
4. Non-fat frozen yogurt doesn’t count as anything.
5. If it comes from the… Continue

16/365. A male. Can't stand him. Never met such a detriment to society as this guy. Someday he will end up in jail, being not just a detriment but also a burden.
17/365. Wayne W. Whaaaaat a freakshow. Left after grade school, I heard he set fire to a couple things in my hometown. It was never proven. Wonder what happened to the guy?

This weekend I attended a beautiful Greek wedding. It was a very ceremonial event lasting over an hour and filled with tradition and symbolism. At one point in the ceremony, the priest spoke about the roles of both the husband and wife. As he read from his scriptures he talked about the bond between a man and a woman, how he is to love her as he loves himself and how she is to love him like no other. As much as she is to honor him, he (the priest… Continue

I am wondering if my blog has any possible audience? I write about tips for planning all types of events. I choose such a broad spectrum because I felt that there are already so many wedding websites out there, that another one would just get lost in the sauce. But, now the doubt has started to move in and it has me questioning my choice. I know that what I have to offer is something that people can use, but I think it has to be fine-tuned. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them.… Continue
