Slow Love

Writing is Our Therapy

I learn best by writing. Whether it's studying for a test or trying to blog away a problem, like Dominique Browning so aptly put it in Slow Love, writing is the way I absorb my world.  Read more >

Cooking (and Cookies!) for One

One of the things that Dominique Browning admitted struggling with in her memoir, Slow Love is cooking for one. It's something I've struggled with and continue to struggle with when my husband goes off on business trips and I'm the only one home. The difference between me and Dominique?

The "So What?" Lesson

I could learn a lot from Dominique Browning about gardening. The parts in Slow Love where she talked about her gardens and her approach to gardening were some of my favorites. Perhaps because when it comes to gardening I am a big chicken. Yes, I am scared of my flower beds.  Read more >

Stroller: Slow Love, Lost Love or Love Never Found?

In Dominique Browning's memoir, Slow Love, she spends a lot of time remembering and questioning a past relationship. In the book Browning calls him Stroller, a name that he chose for himself after rejecting Walker. Walker isn't his real name either, she chose it because he's best at walking away. And well, that sums up her relationship with Stroller.  Read more >

Dominique Got Canned: Do You Have A Plan?

Let's not gloss over it -- when Dominique Browning got let go from Conde Nast, she was in a better position than most of us. She didn't have much debt. She owned two houses. She had investments. She had options that meant that she was able to take the time to get back on her feet. That's a luxury that most of us don't have.  Read more >
