On one of my early dates with my now husband I remember him talking about how some of his friends didn’t really understand his commitments to his daughter as he ‘only’ saw her every other weekend.

This Yiddisheh mama has a major confession to make. I’ve been holding this one in, so bear with me. It comes from a lifetime ago. You SAHM’s, like my Mrs., oh how I want to be you.

No, it’s not that you’re beautiful, nor is it that you’re the hottest POA in here although these are both very nice things to hear in their own personalized ways of course. Just in general, food for thought, these are nice things to hear on any day or well everyday (okay, realistically, bi-monthly or at...

It’s hard to believe just how convoluted and complicated my life has been. I met an incredible, yet imperfect man twenty years ago and we embarked on a journey that is nothing short of a roller coaster ride. We’ve been up, we’ve been down, we’ve gone around so many times we were ready to vomit...

Even some of the most fashion forward women will admit that somewhere deeply buried (but 100% accessible) in their dresser is a pair of her favorite sweatpants. What is it about these folded (let’s be honest—wadded), wrinkled, old, likely college sweatpants that makes them stick around? Is it the cozy factor? Is it the elastic...

Those are words you should never say to another woman (ok maybe not NEVER because there could always be an exception to the rule, but Be CAREFUL.) We all want to protect our friends. We all want them to be happy. But suggesting leaving a marriage that isn’t yours is a slippery slope! A marriage...
