Being Home

When I first moved to Macon, I cried. Literally. I told my mother that the only things that could possibly flourish here were cows and insisted that the FIRST thing I would do after law school was get the hell out of this, well, hell. But then I got engaged, both with a diamond and […]

Overwhelmed.

You know how sometimes, you wake up after a bad night of sleep and your kid is grouchy and you totally eat left over pizza for breakfast? You know how you roll into work begrudgingly on time, with your fancy lawyer shoes on, and your make-up just so, and you have four voicemail messages from […]

Choosing Happy

When I was married, I spent a lot of time wondering why things weren’t better. I did a lot of silent judging of my husband and a lot of not-so-silent judging. I was angry and lonely and bitter and probably not that fun to be around. And I think, honestly, it’s because I just couldn’t […]

So Much to Say

I have so much to say. I have so little time to say it in. When you think that your life is moving along at a perfect speed, something always changes. Something always takes you by surprise, changing your footsteps, changing your direction, changing your frame of mind. My frame of mind has been changed. […]

The Christmas Story

This time of year does something to me, ever since I became a mother. I didn’t realize it until 2009, when J was just four months old, and I found myself sitting in a church pew on Christmas eve, bawling my eyes out while the minister read the Christmas Story.  All of a sudden it […]

Sometimes Old Friends ARE the Best

On Saturday, an old friend from college drove down from North Carolina to visit me.  She lives in San Francisco, so we haven’t laid eyes on each other, except via Facebook, since October 13, 2007.  How do I remember that date? Easy… it was my wedding day. Well, my first wedding day… because let’s face it… […]

Contented

It’s Tuesday and my sublime happiness has returned from its Monday hibernation. This morning, I got up at 5:30 to finish prepping for my 9:30 court appearance.  I let the dogs outside and sat in the cool morning stillness of my house, listening to the slow drip of the coffee maker and the whirr of the […]

A Mending of Hearts

I had my first heartbreak when I was a senior in college. I remember calling and calling when it was finally over, wondering what went wrong and how to fix it… isn’t that the way with first heartbreaks? No matter what age?  Looking back, I shudder when I think about how lost I was for […]

Back to Your Regularly Scheduled Programming…

Well then. That was… therapeutic?  Helpful?  Ridiculously long-winded and semi-cathartic? Yes, all of the above.  I spent the better part of a week unpacking the heavy bags of divorce and stacking them out for you all to read and judge.  I poured out my heart and soul and angst and tears and then it was finished.  This morning, I […]

Being Neighborly

When I lived in Savannah, we had an apartment with soft gray carpets.  Although the floor was never really clean, due to my ex’s opinion that “cleaning the table” meant scraping crumbs onto the floor, it always sort of looked clean.  You couldn’t see the clumps of AJ hair or the tracked in dirt.  There […]

  • I'm a divorced, single mom to a pre-schooler, a full-time attorney, and a semi-reluctant vegetarian. I work hard and when given the chance, I play hard... but I'm almost never given the chance.

    I think fart jokes are funny, I'm pretty sure magic is real, and my life long dream is to buy a farm and write a novel while watching horses run around at a respectable distance. (Because horses are scary up close. Seriously.)
