Having it All

I just got back to work after an hour luncheon with some law students at my old law school.  The purpose of the meeting was to impart all of my glorious wisdom re: being a woman lawyer to a group of women who are in the process of, well,  becoming lawyers.  It was eye opening. […]

New Mother Advice

This has been a sad week.  And if there’s one thing I have taken out of this week it is that I was uninformed as a new mother. See, I took J to the grocery store with me every time I went.  I enjoyed the oohs and ahhs from fellow shoppers.  I enjoyed having him […]
