I Was Fat On My Wedding Day

I was fat on my wedding day.

 

Maybe it’s because I graduated college and received my job offer within the same weekend he proposed, but my life was pretty intense once I was engaged.

I Don’t Want to be Your Mom Friend

Find mom friends they say. It’ll be easy they say. Wrong.

 

My personal experience with motherhood is that the beginning of it can be incredibly isolating.

You Hated Me in High School

It’s happened, I’m now far enough out of high school to speak about it with a modicum of authority, or wistful nostalgia. A full decade has passed (plus) and I’m to the point where I forget how old I am, so I have to remind myself of my birth year and count forward, slowly.… READ THE REST
