I got a little sad

I have had a lot of blog posts formulating in my head. I want to share so much with you. I have wanted to share what I have been up to; some cool updates. I have wanted to share with you some fun or helpful or pretty new finds so that you can enjoy them like I have. I thought that ...

Big News!

Well, I have to come clean. I have been keeping a secret from you, holding it close to the vest and close to my heart. But now I can share some big news! It's time for a new Edition to my world... I am writing a book! More than that---I have a book deal! Thanks to my amazing literary agent, Renée ...

Birth Story Revisited

Two years ago, one month before I came out with "The Hardest Post I've Ever Written" I shared my birth story. That was the first post in which I opened up about my new life, one that involved many new feelings, new emotions and, of course, a new baby. Today, as I cuddled my son on the couch, I buried ...

What is in store? Ever so much more.

Yesterday, my "work day" wrapped up with a chat with my business manager. By the way, you must remember, I am the girl who has only had one set of business cards in her entire life... and they were Betty Boop business cards I had personalized for me at FAO Schwartz that read, "Star of Stage and ...

A Birth Story-My Sequel: Part 3

When we left off, I was being wheeled into the OR in the afternoon for a surprise C-Section, 4 days early, at 38.5 weeks and scared as hell. I am a very superstitious person and look for signs all around me. During the scary, unknown part of my first unexpected C-Section with my daughter, I was feeling helpless and ...

A Birth Story-My Sequel: Part 2

Perhaps I should back up a bit. As I mentioned, the doctor told me that because of the nature of my contractions, the difference I was feeling (despite having already been through FOUR false alarms), I should come in to Labor and Delivery to be checked out. You should know this about me: I am a positive person, I am ...

A Birth Story–My Sequel: Part 1

Hello, there. Or, to many, I should say Hello, Again. Welcome. Or Welcome Back. Right now, you can find me mostly over at 511 Ever After, but I've decided to return for a post that could only be written here; here where my mommy roots are anchored in deep, in stories of joy, enchantment, confusion, pain....my stories from ...
