Forgive me

Dear Friends, Will you forgive me? Every single day for the past week I have picked up my computer, opened it up with the intention to write... and then stopped. Every single day. I do not know what is getting in my way. I have so much to share; perhaps that weight feels crushing. Last week, I published this, as that was ...

Walk the line

I stood at my back door after a stressful morning drop-off with my kids. I had been 1 minute shy of another tardy slip and so I raced to get my daughter to school on time and she made it. But it was tense. Anxiety seeped out from me; it was palpable. My kids felt it. It wasn't ...

24 hours

Motherhood is an amazing thing. It is magical and mercurial (and yes, sometimes situations can be maddening). As a mother, I can be rockin' it one minute and then cleaning up an enormous mess (whether literal or figurative) the next. In fact, it is this very spectrum that inspired me to started writing this blog 6 1/2 years ago; ...

This time of year

I remember when I wrote this post -- about the autumn leaves crunching under my feet and the smell of firewood in the air. I remember it so vividly, yet it was over six years ago, when my daughter was not even six months old. She was just starting to speak, as she was an incredibly early (and eager) ...

Main Line Connect

Last month, I had the honor of being the guest featured on an episode of the television program Main Line Connect. I was interviewed by the show's fabulous host, Jennifer Lynn Robinson, about... YOU! For real! Well, really, the show was about this blog, and the evolution of Mommy, Ever After from "baby book" to business. My main point ...

Pardon Me

As I am supposed to be doing a lot of things, like posting this week's Together, Ever After story, writing all about our amazing experience with the iLove Photobooth Team for our Mischief Night party last weekend, (because...I mean... it was OFF THE HOOK.) But, alas, check it: The 2 important things to note in the status above: I am home with ...

Guilt.

I have to admit something to you. I have tremendous guilt; I would describe this feeling of guilt a a combination of pressure that I put on myself and a feeling of failure. I have a lot going on in my personal life. I am helping to build a most awesome community. I am trying desperately to find ...

Help, Healing and Hope.

It is because of this group that I am now hiding under my comforter, 30 minutes before my alarm is set to go off (that is if my human alarm does not wake first), with the courage to write about today. My experience in September changed my life--my entire being--in many ways, both tangible and intangible, ...

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 ...
