some stuff

I'm Going to BlogHer '14!
I’ll be at Blogher next week! Will you? Just a warning, I’m a hugger.

 

some stuff

Read this because I said so.

The 2014 Listen to Your Mother videos are here! Or go straight to the Austin playlist.

I find this story completely fascinating: From the Washington Post, This is what happened when I drove my Mercedes to pick up food stamps. “The reality of poverty can spring quickly while the psychological effects take longer to surface. When you lose a job, your first thought isn’t, “Oh my God, I’m poor. I’d better sell all my nice stuff!” It’s “I need another job. Now.” When you’re scrambling, you hang on to the things that work, that bring you some comfort. That Mercedes was the one reliable, trustworthy thing in our lives.”

My friend Sarah hit the nail on the head with this beautiful post about choosing to show the happy. Why I will continue sharing happy pictures of my family on Facebook.  “Go ahead and post an after baby’s bath cute photo or that sweet family bathroom selfie because those moments made you feel so good.”

I love this so hard.

 

me, elsewhere

Super excited that my piece on apologies was published on Huff Post Parents. I’d love it if you stopped by.
