The Cove

I don't usually do things like this on my blog, but I saw the documentary The Cove over the weekend I feel compelled to act in any way that I can. I'll admit that I didn't really want to watch this film. I knew the following: 1. That it was about dolphin slaughtering and 2. Read more…

Becoming a Mother

Last Friday I participated in a "nurse-in" in my neighborhood of Lincoln Square. I didn't know what I was getting myself into beforehand, only that my friend Lauren had invited me to walk to the square with her and her daughters for some kind of breast-feeding situation.

Mom Issues

My friend Jenny Hontz broke a story in Newsweek yesterday about a recent IRS ruling against tax breaks for women who are unable to breast-feed after double mastectomies.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

Greg and I were talking last night about how we can hardly believe that we’ve only been here two weeks. We’re so in love with our new home and new neighborhood that I think we’ve both slightly erased the memories of our former habitats. On Friday night we went for our first run in our Read more…

Stand for Change

I’m officially endorsing Barack Obama. I really want this man to win. I think he is everything that this country needs to turn things around. I think he is incredibly inspiring, empowering and more authentic than any candidate I’ve ever seen. I’ve been a fan of Barack since the very beginning and I would be Read more…
