Saying Goodbye to Your Ex Best Friend

I recently stumbled over a scrapbook I had made a few years ago and inside it were photos of my best friend and me. My heart broke because my best friend is no longer in contact with me. I don't want to throw it away, just like I don't want to remove the photos of us that are in almost every single photo frame on my wall. I love the memories and I never want to forget them, but seeing them makes me miss her and feel extremely sad. How do you get over losing your best friend?...more

In Praise of Friendship

How did I get so lucky? I have a best friend who also happens to be my husband... who loves me unconditionally, and encourages me to follow my dreams, and keeps me laughing at life.

I want to elaborate on Prince today because I think you all are smart enough to figure out that my relationship with Paula Deen would exist solely on a mutual love of butter. And I adore her impossibly blue eyes and her sweet Southern accent, but I digress....more
