A New Age of Hate

I know. I know… I KNOW!!! After an Election Day that will most likely go down in the history books, we all expected a different outcome.  And when I say “all of us,” I mean ALL OF US… Democrats.  Republicans.  Experts.  Analysts.  News outlets.  Social media.  Dogs.  Cats.  God.  I think even Trump himself expected to lose. But he didn’t… And […]

My Life Was Changed By Russ Weatherford

Today, August 10th (8/10) at 8:10am, I lost another dear friend, Russ Weatherford.  That’s my third loved one lost in less than a year’s time!  But after fighting pancreatic cancer for almost a year and a half, and after another six months of unknown pain even before that, I am almost certain that Russ is resting peacefully without pain and where […]

Why I’m Playing Pokemon Go

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new app available for our iPhone and Android devices.  Excuse me if I pronounce it incorrectly, but it’s called Poke–poka–pokaman–awwww, who am I kidding?  I’ve been waiting for this app all year! It’s called Pokemon GO! And let me guess?  You’re playing it, too, aren’t you? Now, for those of you wondering: What […]

I Can’t Stop Crying

Today marks “yet another” sad day in American history… As many of you already know, just shortly after 2am in the morning on Sunday, June 12th, a gunman opened fire at Pulse, a nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  Claiming the lives of 50 men and women and injuring over 50 more, some will say the gunman did this for his faith.

Magical Moments

How many of my readers live in New York City? As some of you may know, living here can be rough, and even that is an understatement.  Any daily commute is crowded.  The subways smell like piss.  Some of the people can be even worse.  So many New Yorkers feel “entitled” simply because they live in one of the most expensive cities […]

Losing Loved Ones

Prince. Dana Lorge. Robert Sambursky. All were lost too soon… Someone the whole world knew. Someone a large community knew. And someone I knew. All were lost too soon… It always amazes me when people take the death of a celebrity so personally.  Most of us never knew the celebrity that died, and yet, some of us feel as though we lost a […]

I Found a Literary Agent!

Today, I got one step closer to publishing my children’s book! Wait, what!?  You didn’t know that I wrote a children’s book!? Well, I did.  And it’s awesome!  And yes, I get it.  I’m bias.  But even so, my story is current and classic all at the same [once upon a] time. I actually wrote this story years ago.  One of […]

Getting Married

Today is my husband’s and my anniversary. Thank you. Two years in and we’re still going strong!  (Check back with me in another two years though….Just Kidding!) Seriously though, the reason I’m so excited is because we have FINALLY reached the planning stages of our wedding reception!  Yup, that’s right.  We’ve been married for two years, together for three, and […]

I’m With Her, But I’m Also With Him…

No.  I’m not bi.  Well, maybe.  But I sort of think EVERYONE is bi, just on different degrees.  But we’ll save all that for a whole other post… No.  I’m talking Hillary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. Yes.  I think Hillary Clinton should be our next President of the United States. Yes.  I know she’s said some things in the past […]

Leap Day

It’s Leap Day! It also happened to be bridge night. Now, I’m not usually one to take extra advantage of Leap Day, but to some, today is an extra day to do something–anything–so long as it’s a positive activity.  Do something MORE.  Do something you might never do on the boring other 365 days of the year.  The expression, “Seize […]
