Gemini Sun 5/20/14 - Let The Multi Tasking Begin!

Gemini has the sign of the “twins” as its Astrology symbol and while the Sun is in this 3rd sign of the Zodiac, we will all have the urge to double the fun regardless of our actual birth sign. The characteristic youthfulness of Gemini, they usually look younger than their age, has nothing to do with immaturity. It is a curiosity for new places and things, the enjoyment of doing several things at once and the willingness to adapt that keeps the wrinkles, mental and physical, at bay. Fun, flirty, festivity loving, focus challenged, flexible, flighty (Full disclosure – I have a Gemini Sun, so I’m really having fun w/ this :)...more

Sexy, Sizzling, Scorpio Full Moon 5/14/14

Things might get a little intense on Wednesday. Scorpio, a passionate water sign, can be emotional and sensitive and the force of a Full Moon can distill all that power into a cauldron of “feelings”.  All that energy can go off the charts. Tuck in all exposed nerves. Don’t take everything personally. During a Full Moon, gauge what has been accomplished so far and move to finalize, complete tasks in the next few weeks....more

thoughts on motherhood … is it really harder for g. paltrow?

Schoolgirl Crushes

I have a crush. I'll admit it.And this is just the latest. From adolescence to today there has resided in my girly girl heart a steady and motley stream of man candy, all completely restricted to my cranium and all fully outside the scope of my actual relationships. Harmless, whimsical, and surprisingly long-lasting all--the Liam Neeson era alone lasted over a decade. He still makes me a little giggly....more

My Substitute Moms...

Every year as Mother's Day approaches, I feel a sadness creep in.  I miss my Mom.  My first Mother's Day without her was the first Mother's Day I was a mom;  albeit, my bundle of joy was nestled comfortably within my womb, I was a mother nonetheless.  I remember that first year, being a jumble of hormones and emotions, breaking down in sobs during church as the message was all about moms and how lucky we were to have them and should honor them on that day.  The ache in my heart was so intense....more

My Husband, Without His Knowledge or Permission, Is a Hipster

DanaBowman @momsieblog.com This is how this all went down:I am clearing out the husband’s closet.  I am not especially sure why I am doing this task, except that cleaning the cat box was also on my to-do list, and I decided to postpone it for the pleasure of purging some pleated Dockers. (Say that fast twice.)And then, I spied them.Suspenders....more
