Spring Is Breaking

2016-07-22T23:27:51+00:00 March 13th, 2016|

Welcome, once again, to Spring Break. Bikinis, pennant races, whiskey ice cream and soul-crushing drunkenness. For a quick refresher on panting, call me. :) It's a terrible week to be stuck in...

The Love Particle

2016-07-22T23:28:45+00:00 February 28th, 2016|

We're getting closer to discovering the secrets of the universe, our minds, and our hearts. As we're all well aware, there was some very exciting news during this past summer about a scientific disco...

Counting Cupid

2016-07-22T23:30:14+00:00 February 14th, 2016|

The right--and wrong--ways to express love on Valentine's Day. By the second week in February, it's been cold for too long. The boots flop around like day-old fish, and that sweater I've been...

Worth the Wade

2016-07-23T04:03:15+00:00 January 31st, 2016|

I come from a family with a razor-sharp focus on food. My mother has a voracious appetite for cooking; my father, for eating. He fails at the stove and barely squeaks by at the barbecue but makes up....

Why You Can’t Commit (or Sometimes Hate Having Done So)

2016-07-23T04:04:11+00:00 January 17th, 2016|

Kids believe in the tooth fairy, women believe in chocolate, and men believe in underwear models like me. It's this belief that causes many a man to fear being locked down because an elusive underwea...

Family Tree

2016-07-23T04:05:21+00:00 January 3rd, 2016|

Though less rooted than he was, I'm still my father's daughter. 25 years ago, on the first warm day of Spring, my father took my big sister and me into the yard behind our newly-built tract house and...

Building Self Love

2016-07-23T04:06:14+00:00 December 20th, 2015|

You don't need to do anything or be defined by anyone else to prove yourself or to feel validated. You need only true love and acceptance of yourself--you are worthy of your desires: healthy, joyful...

Share the Stash

2016-07-23T04:07:18+00:00 December 6th, 2015|

I've never looked down on re-gifting, even before it was so common. If someone loves something enough to want to pass it on to me, I see it as a high compliment; if it's something they didn't love, the...

Gratitude Attitude

2016-07-23T04:08:30+00:00 November 22nd, 2015|

We say we ought to be thankful, but we aren,t always. Sometimes we skip giving thanks entirely, or often we meet an offered "thanks" with only a simple nod or stony silence. And that,s a shame. A ...

The Art of the Gamble

2016-07-23T04:10:02+00:00 November 8th, 2015|

In 2001, I moved in with the guy I'd been madly in love with for several years. I truly thought we'd live happily ever after. Less than 6 months later, I found myself moving out and leaving town. I...
