Why I Live-Tweeted My Daughter’s Birth

A funny thing happened on the fourth of April. I woke up, pregnant, and had a good day. Some work, some play, some rest. In close to a month I’d be having a baby, and I was settling into that stretch of pregnancy where you are uncomfortably large and eager for it all to be behind you. At night, I went to bed. A few hours later, I woke up to find that my water had broken. Since I didn’t really know what that meant, I had to Google to see if … [Continue Reading...]

How to Make 2015 Not Suck #goals

As part of my morning quiet time, I've been reading a book on goal-setting from Danielle Laporte. So far, I'm loving it. This morning, in the book, Danielle suggested that the entire month of December should be wiped off the map in terms of work. In other words, no one should work in December. I laughed. And then I agreed. There's a lot to do in December. The holidays. The family stuff. The shopping. All that food. And then there's the … [Continue Reading...]
