Dear sourdough bread, I love and miss you so
Shortly after Christmas last year, I started to notice that the excessive celebrations were starting to catch up to me. I was feeling sluggish, and it was much easier to slide into yoga pants than attempt to suck it all in and force myself into jeans. I saw some pictures from a birthday party in... Read more »

The only thing I’m looking forward to about this upcoming Prom weekend is for it to be over. It took months and hundreds of dresses for my daughter to find the perfect one — which was just a few days ago. No, that didn’t cause any fighting at all. I’ve been given a whole portfolio... Read more »
