wish list
About twice a year, I have this urge to throw away all of my crap and buy new, streamlined crap that is all very minimalist and goes together.
being a mom
all-girls schools
Or are all my friends just enormous weirdos?
vagina
thought catalog
6. Witty responses to something someone said a long time ago.
accidents

Sometimes I wish I were a complicated muse-type of broad who is supermodel-tall and once touched JD Salinger’s penis. Other times, I'm soooo glad I'm not.

Or "strides of pride," depending on how you want to look at life.
weddings
We had to do a lot of it ourselves, but in the end, there was no doubt that the wedding was ours -- customized to the last detail.
beauty
I know most people have an attachment to their hair, but I’ve never felt that way myself. When I mentioned it to my hair stylist, she happily whipped out the hair buzzer.
unbakeables
There are two types of humans on this planet: Those who prefer cookie dough to baked cookies and those who are idiots.

parenting
Each day with little kids is a marathon and a lifetime and a work of art and a mess. Inevitably.
