Time to Speak Your Truth?

Just about twenty years ago our daughter Andie arrived in the world, three months before she was meant to be born. I chronicled the entire journey in my memoir, Preemie. One chapter that stood out for so many readers was when I introduced the first doctor we’d see after Andie’s three month hospital stay. Readers […]

Magical Moment: Much Needed Anxiety Relief

Boy, there’s a lot happening in the world right now, hey? Years ago, as a new Mom (I always capitalize!) of two young children, one medically fragile, I dealt with anxiety on a pretty deep level. It got to a point where something had to give, and I ended up creating what I’d later call […]

Magical Moment: The Story I’m Telling Myself

I have a question for you? Is there a not-so-nice sentence or phrase you repeatedly say to yourself, or about yourself? Something that you just casually put out there without thinking a whole lot about it? Something like – I’m such a klutz…or I’m an idiot…or I have the worst luck…or Here we go again…or What have I done now? […]

I’m writing to you from the windy, white sandy beach of Cape Cod. This was an unplanned vacation, rather it came from a place of Inspired Action. August was a time of deep connection for our family and my Mama Heart was singing with joy. Then the calendar turned the page toward fall, the light […]

Have you ever noticed that sometimes it’s the simplest moments that feel so profound? Just last week, simply wandering the berry patches of a dear friend’s farm with my daughter, was pure Magic. No agenda. No plan. But the conversation and connection were wonderful. I often need to remind myself that there’s no need to […]

Hi Sweet Friend! Last week I shared the newspaper article about my decision to give my books away to local moms. Here is a quick video of the Magical Moment that followed as a result. It totally made my heart sing, and I hope it does the same for you! Book Giveaway Magical Moment May […]

Magical Moment: Can You Be Certain?

Hey Sweet Friend, I’ve been thinking a lot about you and wondering how you are. How you’re adjusting to this “new normal.” So much of this time reminds me of when our daughter, Andie was born so prematurely. That was a time full of so much uncertainty. It was scary, confusing and exhausting. Just like […]
