The Price of It All

When Greg and I met, I was coming off the first substantial amount of time I’d ever spent on my own. I’d grown strong and independent during this time. I lived alone, put myself to bed every night, traveled to and from Los Angeles, always returning with the knowledge that I wasn’t reliant on anyone. Read more…

Dear Baby: We’re All Waiting For You

Dear Baby, It’s Friday, June 15th and you were supposed to be here by now. At least I thought you were. I guess one thing I’ve learned as a parent is that you can’t plan on anything. Not anything at all. And that’s fine, but really, we’re all just so anxious to meet you. Not Read more…

Motherhood: A Life Unexpected

Being a mother is never something I imagined for myself. Inside all the things I’ve dreamed of becoming in my life (a veterinarian, a marine biologist, a poet, a nurse, a therapist, an author), mother was never among them. When I made the decisionĀ a few years ago that I did, in fact, want a baby Read more…

A Shift in Focus

A definite shift is occurring in my little part of the world. An internal turning, as only must happen when one is seven months pregnant. I’m alone in the house right now, for the first time in many days. It’s funny how used to not being alone, a person can become. Vera was on spring Read more…

New Interview & Excerpt

I have a new interview and excerpt from Rules up on TNB today. If you recall, The Nervous Breakdown is the literary website through which I met my husband. He was already a writer for it when I joined back in 2007. He was living in Chicago and I was living in Los Angeles and Read more…

On Three Years of Marriage

Greg and I were married three years ago today on Cape Cod. There is an entire album of our wedding photos here, but my favorite photo to this day from that weekend is this one of us taken the day after the wedding. We’re standing in the waves on Bank Street Beach, a place I’ve Read more…

The End of Life in Chicago

Four years ago I made a decision that completely changed my life. I was on Cape Cod for my grandmother's funeral and instead of flying home to Los Angeles afterwards like I was supposed to, I changed my flight on a whim so that I could stop in Chicago and meet a guy named Greg Read more…

Two Out of Three

Greg and I went out last night to the Hoyt's opening downtown at Hotel 71. I wore a cute dress and we sipped cocktails and gazed out the window at the city skyline. Sometimes I forget how to be just me and Greg, but sometimes I remember, and it's perfect.

Dear Vera, A 20-Month Love Letter

Dear Vera, Today is Valentine's Day and you are 20 months old. I told your dad last week that, in no uncertain terms, I'm not interested in Valentine's Day. I reminded him again this morning. No flowers or cards, okay? I didn't get you anything. Got it. Of course, I added, if you're into it Read more…

Why My Husband is a Good Father

Greg is a fantastic father in so many ways, but the parenting skill of his that I am most in awe of is his innate desire to teach Veronica things. I credit her large vocabularly and her ability to instantly pick up new words entirely to him. I feel so lucky to be co-parents with Read more…
