    I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my son.  We drove to be with our friend Laurel and her family in Carlsbad and with horrible traffic it took a whopping 3 hours to get there but we had a ton of food and laughs and left well rested only to have the drive back take 2 ½ hours.

    I am thankful for my son.  He is a remarkable and fabulous young man and I am truly blessed to be his mother and friend. I remember my entire pregnancy, when he was a baby, when he told me loved me for the first time, when he started school and when he became taller than me yet I... read on

    With the holidays fast approaching and the end of the year in sight I decided to have Sunday brunch at my home with friends.  Life gets busy and we make plans to see each other but weeks turn into months so rather than just talk about it I made a plan.

    After spending countless hours and insane amounts of money searching for love I have discovered what has been missing from my plan.  It turns out there is one sure fire thing that opens the door to meeting men and I feel quite comfortable saying that it is guaranteed to also work for... read on

    I can’t remember when going to Starbucks became an acceptable date but meeting someone for a cup of coffee is not a date it’s an interview and I think it’s unacceptable and am so surprised when people write on their JDate profiles that their idea of a perfect first date is... read on
