The Generation Gap

Part of the thing about getting older…is that you get even more awesome! And, apparently, crankier. But seriously, ladies and germs, for me, part of the thing about getting older is trying to figure out where I stand in the “generation gap.” Or, really, why I dislike it so much when “older” (cough cough) people…

Dressing The Part  Before I start today’s…welp, some people might call it a “rant”, but I prefer to think of it as “passionate advice coming from a place of love.” Oh, just humor me. Anyhoo, before I start venting, let me just say that I personally have a ton of J.Crew clothing in my closet, but when…

Adventures in Advertising

I was on LinkedIn yesterday evening…ugh, that’s a shameful truth to admit in public!

Looking for love in many of the wrong places…

I probably (“probably”) shouldn’t post when I’m grumpy (…since when has that stopped me, right?), but let’s face it: there’s only 24 hours in the day. I’m am only one woman. I foresee more grumpiness. Anyhoo. Here’s a profound thought: if you do something nice for someone else, maybe someone for whom you even have…
