Good Mom, Bad Wife

There’s a common belief that as a mother, our needs are fulfilled last. Our food is always cold, we’re in a perpetual state of exhaustion, and the thank you’s for our service are few and far between. And that’s all true.… READ THE REST

Parenthood: Mostly Worth It

It’s February in the Midwest and a lot of us got a taste of the 60’s this weekend (Fahrenheit, not the era). Yesterday, my husband, daughter, and I had the same idea that everyone else in Michigan did  – we had to get outside.… READ THE REST

Not Always Happily Married

I’m not sure what I expected when I walked down that aisle. Almost 3 years ago we took our vows, and we’ve been an “us” for nearly 7.

He’s Just Not That Into You


I spent over two years of my life pining over an ex-boyfriend that just wasn’t that into me. Not to mention a few other dudes here and there. If you give me a chance, I think what I have to share with you (which is what your friends and family won’t say to your face) could be of use.… READ THE REST
