 A mama cat was on our back deck this morning, with five kittens orbiting her like an atom. I called Abigail, so she could join me in the kitchen to watch. She wants to be a singing veterinarian when she grows up. We pressed ourselves to the sliding glass doors, as the mama cat turned […]

moving on, school edition

Clothing Purge

No, I’m not moving on from this blog, though I’ve definitely been on vacation. After the first week of July, I’ve committed to daily visits to the library to work on my next book proposal. I sometimes hit a wall in my writing, unsure of where to go with a sentence or a complete structure. […]

whole 30: thank heaven for little girls + ghee

Whole30 Cookbook

For 34 days, I went Whole 30. The whole 9 yards, no cheating, reading every single label of every bit of food I ate. Whole30? It’s the #1 Best Seller in Weight Loss Recipes on Amazon. The authors tell you not to begin with the “not’s” when explaining the “elimination eating plan” (lest you call […]

hamptons camping

Camping in the Rain

Once upon a life ago, I wrote a post where I make mention of my Hamptons Playlist, “Camp Hamps.” I documented my weekend in the Hamptons with my (very) single friends. Now, this post with a similar title, takes on a more literal meaning. I’ve also gotten the joke, finally: every single time I go […]

Magic Camp at Bryn Mawr College

I‘m a huge believer in separation between church and state. That is, I believe the pious love of camp shouldn’t touch your life at the stately institution of school. Camp friends should be separate from your school friends. A random handful of kids who happen to attend your school, sure, it’s inevitable I guess. Parents […]

bumping into you-know-ew

Reverse Bob

A few close friends of mine ran into the Wasband. My friends weren’t together on these occasions, as they’ve happened sporadically over the years. A night club, a sporting event, the back waxer. Each time, the friend has texted me, sometimes along with a photo taken on the sly. “Has not aged well.” Then a […]

the abc’s of you and me

NYC Quirks by the Bouquet

Ass-crack was your first glimpse of me in person. Bent at the waste, I was unfurling my jeans back over my snow boots. Caught looking as you removed your scarf, your smile was shy, but your eyes were decidedly not. “Definitely interested,” I remember thinking, both ways. Eating was on the agenda, given that we’d […]

movies to see in 2015

2015 Best Films

While, yes, without apology, I’m undeniably waiting for the return of The Bachelorette on May 18, I’m also currently enjoying a new, sure to be favorite, show titled, “HAPPYish” on Showtime. Despite its mixed reviews, I feel as if this balls-out mama (Katherine Hahn) is my outspoken soul sister. We’ll see. Movies I’m looking forward […]
