Under my skin.

This is a subject that I never thought that I would broach on here. Six years ago, when I started this site, I never thought that I would be write this post because I never thought that it would apply to me. I never thought that I would get a tattoo. My thoughts about tattoos were actually pretty ...

My WEEK in music.

Earlier this year I wrote about my band, Fox and the Hounds, and "My Year in Music." The truth is, if I had to site the three things that defined my past 19 months most, things that, in many ways, saved me from getting lost in a dark abyss, they would be: 1. My incredible network of loved ...

A Musical Morning.

This morning, after a full week of feeling sick and sleeping in, I got up with the kids. Except, I wasn't quite ready to get up, nor was I feeling my best, so I decided that while we were "up" we could snuggle on the couch watching music videos for a good hour before starting our ...

But then I erased my text.

I started to type this post thinking that I would link to all of the New Year's Eves that I have written about in the past, referencing some recent posts about letting things go and moving forward, but in an effort to really take steps away from the past, I am going to leave those ...

Fox & the Hounds and the time of my life. And, a video!

Several years ago, I wrote a post specifically about my love of and history with music; But, in truth, music has infiltrated almost every space of this site. I write about our daily dance parties, my deep love for the music of Brett Dennen, my rich history with musical theatre and the soundtrack that makes up my life.

“Trapped in the circumference of my head.”

This is not a happy post. But it is hopeful. And hopeful is the best we can do. *** I love home decorating, especially covering my walls with meaningful pieces, as  511 suggests. But in all honesty, I am not yet in a place in my life where I can collect a lot of real art; I have my ...

My Nanny

I have written on this site, since it's inception, about my Nanny. My Nanny was my grandmother on my dad's side. She was incredibly special to me, and I lost her when I was 13 years old after a furious 6 month battle with cancer. She is why I have a thing for feathers and lucky pennies. She ...

My sister, my self.

This weekend, my Twin came to town. !!!!!!!!! I got to spend an entire, blissful, loverly 48 hours with the girl who makes me feel more like me, more like the very best version of me, than anyone else in the world. Having Twin and her most wonderful guy, whom we shall call Go Go, in our home, in our bed, as we ...

On this Saturday night last year,

this was happening. My water broke, my contractions were three minutes apart, my mom and dad and husband and I were crowded in a small, somewhat scary delivery room, as we braced ourselves to meet our girl. Tonight, I split a piece of pizza with my daughter, and made two dozen cupcakes, and constructed my girl's favorite character out of fondant, and my mom ...
