It has been a busy week and weekend. Memories flood me. In addition to writing, I have been culling old photos for blog posts. My writing is churning up feelings and memoriers, some good, some bittersweet. But, really, it’s all good, and it’s exhilarating. ...more
Home from our honeymoon, I’m back in my car office, wondering what I might write or which scribbled-down words I might tweak. This is my pre-writing hour, this time while my kid is in yoga class stretching her limits … I find …
Those words I wrote about marriage in Asheville …
Well this is my first post confessing that I am officially a newly divorcee. It is kind of hard to say out loud, but it does help me to finally accept it. I created this blog to help me cope with my divorce and to annotate the journey of being a single mommy trying to find love....more
