Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover

Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover

I wasn’t looking for a boyfriend, let alone a husband, when I met Russell. I had been married before and had gone through a rough divorce. I wasn’t sure if I ever wanted to get married again. One night, I was out with a friend for a girls’ night out in Jackson Ward. Suddenly, I […]

Why Am I Mean To My Husband

Why am I mean to my husband?

What’s the absolute easiest emotion to feel? No, really. Think about emotions and the amount of effort you put behind them. For me, it’s anger. Or, if you dig deep on the anger iceberg it’s meanness. The easiest emotion to display when my toddler goes against what I said? BE MEAN. Say something I’ll regret […]

This Is Us Makes Me a Better Parent

“This Is Us” Makes Me a Better Parent

  It’s a cult following. For me it started with Parenthood where I dreamed of having 4 kids (before I even had 1). That glorious and beautiful show ended in a bucketful of tears and a dream of naming a child Millie…but Millie’s a little too close to Ellie, the name of my oldest daughter. Now, […]
