I wear many hats: wife, author, boss, friend, daughter, teacher, professional coffee drinker, and now momma.  I’ve been gigging at this motherhood thing for nearly twenty months now.

You know that feeling when you’re SURE that everyone else in the world has a significant other they are texting, a “plus one” to the wedding and a bestie for the restie? That achy lonely feeling of not being sure anyone really sees you? I remember starting my first big girl job in a city...

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine dated a guy who —out of the blue— bailed on their relationship.  Fun coffee dates and long romantic talks resulted in an awkward silence. After a frank conversation about his distance, she learned that he held a list of the perfect woman in his mind— and she...
