About three-and-a-half years ago, we were dealing with a serious stink bug infestation. I posted about it (and other fun homeownership stuff) here. It was such a memorable experience that it’s been on my to-do list to write about for all those years, but it was never quite the right time, and I could never… Continue reading Invasion of the Stink Bugs!
I’ve been writing regularly for long enough now (over a decade!) that you might think I never deal with self-doubt or critical thoughts or insecurities or writer’s block. Bahahahahaha. I deal with all of that, and sometimes (a lot of the time?), the more “successful” pieces I write, the more pressure I put on myself… Continue reading How To Manage Your Inner Critic
A life of self-promotion is exhausting!
What a month! At the end of February I got to perform in the In Harmony concert – that’s the women’s band that I was in last time we lived in Cleveland, and the same band that I drove six hours to perform with a couple years ago. They had another concert, and I was… Continue reading FYI Magazine and A Hevria Article
Let’s start off the year (the Gregorian year, whatever, you know what I mean) with some interesting links, a review, and a giveaway! Not in that order, though.

It snows a lot in Cleveland (the lake effect, no, not… Continue reading This Winter Will Not Defeat Me!!
If you follow this blog’s Facebook page, or have read my Of Interest posts, you’ll see that I’ve shared posts from Hevria more than a few times. This community of Jewish creators is such a great space, and, full disclosure, I was super bummed to not be a part of it when it started. But… Continue reading Coming Out of the Convert Closet
Wow. Wow wow wow. It has been such a whirlwind I can’t even pinpoint when the whirlwindiness began. There are three things I want to share with you this month, so let’s jump right in.
Some women are eternally stylish, effortlessly fashionable, always chic no matter the setting. I have never really been one of those women. I was the girl in high school who found her prom dresses at the thrift store, and rocked caution tape for a sash at Winter Formal. I have never really understood the mystery that is… Continue reading That Time I Thought I Could Be a Fashionista
I love connecting with people. I enjoy the stimulation of reading the articles my friends post, seeing what others are up to and laughing at the brilliant silliness that can be found online. But at some point a darker emotion edged in. It snuck up on me as I saw a website launched that I… Continue reading Stop Looking At Other People’s Grass Already And Plant Your Own Garden
