Cupid, Go Away

Dear Cupid and his Valentine's Day,  You and I? We aren't friends. I really don't like you and you only come around once a year so how did we get here?  On average, Americans spend $146 on their partners or significant...
My husband and I aren't particularly religious. We don't go to church and we rarely refer to God in our home. If anything, we practice and teach kindness and acceptance, maybe on the heels of Buddhism. That's not to...

Have you recently overflown the bathtub, caught dinner on fire, or nearly run your children over in the driveway? A year ago, I did all three of those things in one week. I was having a breakdown, or rather,...
Congratulations! You’re engaged. You’re sporting a shiny new ring and texting your friends and family like crazy with your news. You quickly post to social media pics of the ring and your smiling face. EVERYONE wants to hear the...
