Dear my future children,

There is a fear that rests between my lungs. I can feel it with every heartbeat and every breath I take. A fear of the unknown, a fear of the known, a fear so deeply rooted into my identity that I will selfishly pass it unto you. I will be the f...

In recent times sexual harassment has been brought to light in a rushing wave through the #METOO campaign. As more and more information unfolded I found myself unable to relate to mass media exposure.  I doubt the experience for these women were any less than that of t...

As a young woman this topic brings quite a bit up for me. To start I want to say being a woman in this world is an experience like no other. Looking at the recent news headlines of sexual assault and sexual harassment, glancing at my social media news feed to see perso...

I grew up a skinny girl constantly eating. When I say skinny, I mean collar bone display, no hips, no butt no calves and no boobs skinny.  When I look in the mirror today that very thought is unfathomable!  But worse than that --  I can recall, back when I was a boney,...

Around the Table

 I was last to speak and quite grateful. Primarily, because I really wasn’t prepared for my kids to learn that my one opportunity to YOLO had scared me straight. (Yes, just as intense as the jailhouse reality show of the 80’s)  My only salvation is that...

When this topic was chosen I knew right away it was Misty’s.  If anyone knows about living only once and making the most out of it in our little family – it is Misty.  I imagine it has something to do with her father’s genes.  After all, he came over to America at 18 y...
