The baby’s coming soon

You know when weeks pass in the blink of an eye AND it feels like whatever you’re waiting for is taking it’s sweet ass time to arrive??? That’s how I feel about the last 38 weeks. Being pregnant has both flown by and it seems like I’ve been pregnant forever. Of course. That said, I…

Reckless and Wonderful

“You are doing the most reckless……wonderful thing,” the bearded, 50 something year old man blurted out. I was walking down the street and had just stopped at the crosswalk when this exuberant stranger declared his feelings about my bulging belly. He continued on, telling me about his 16 year old daughter and what a wild…

The threshold of 2017

I’m writing to you from a space of not really knowing what to write. The last few weeks have been a jumble of joy, laughter, fun, anticipation, fear, doubt and worry. In other words, it’s been real life over here. And now we’re at the start of a new year, at the threshold of something…

4 questions to ease you out of 2016 (and get you feeling hopeful for the year to come.)

Thank you, Body.

Craving inspiration

This morning I woke up needing a shot of inspiration. Perhaps it was the holiday travel, our current political state, the back-to-back Thanksgiving gatherings or the underlying anxiety of wanting Adam’s first Thanksgiving with my family to be a “good” one, but whatever it was, this morning was freakin’ rough. My usual response to waking…

Fighting for love.

How are you doing? Truly? It’s been a very painful few weeks for many of us and I really want to know how your body and your being is doing with all of this. I’ve been feeling all the feels. Terrified. Confused. Sad. Angry. Untethered. And, in the last 48 hours, something else has crept…

A bit of relief on this insane election day.

Today is a big day. A big f*cking day. A day so big, so historic, so insanely consequential that it’s hard to let the full gravity of it sink it. Or if we have let the gravity sink it, we’ve been feeling flattened by it. That’s how I’ve been feeling. Flattened. And suffocated. And overwhelmed….
