My Favorites: The Bold Type

When someone asks me my favorite show, I kind of freak out. I mean, I do that pretty much any time someone asks me to choose a favorite something, but there are so many shows I watch and enjoy that it’s really hard to narrow it down to just one.

But I think there’s finally a show that’s changed that: The Bold Type. Continue reading “My Favorites: The Bold Type”

Wonder Woman of the Month: Kristin Mathes M.A., MT-BC

This month I had the privilege of interviewing my best friend, Kristin. She’s someone I’ve admired for a long time (we met my junior year of high school and instantly clicked). I’m so glad she agreed to do this post, because, as you’ll read, she’s one busy woman.

Being Childless When Most of Your Friends Have Kids

Two of my absolute best friends in the entire world became moms for the first time ever this year. One had a boy and the other a girl. One had been trying for a long time and the other got pregnant pretty quickly after deciding with her husband that it’s what they both wanted. Both women are married and both pregnancies were planned. I say this, because we have officially reached the age where our friends are getting pregnant on purpose. We are officially getting old.
