beamly

Red has to be Liz’s father even though he says he’s not: you think this too, right? And I can’t be the only one who sort of wants to punch Fitz. Or watches a show as much for the music as the drama. (“The Blacklist,” “Scandal,” and “Nashville” in case you didn’t know) I’ll admit […]

Taking Yoga Pants to Yoga

My five year old can do downward facing dog so much better than I can. I’ve accepted it. And haven’t let it stop me from going to yoga. Strange as it may seem, all my yoga pants have actually been to yoga. Actually, I started going to yoga before I even owned a pair of […]

Alicewinks: Alice in Wonderland for a New Generation

20130812-161245.jpg

“I am not going down that rabbit hole,” I said firmly, shaking my head for emphasis, even though the person on the other line could not possibly see me. After hanging up the phone, one of my boys asked “Are we getting a rabbit?” I giggled and told him no, it was just an expression, […]
