Friendships: Women Don’t Tell Each Other Everything, Do We?

October 3, 2011 by


In the past week, I realized that there are two subjects that are taboo among women. 1. Admitting that you have a hard time making friends. 2. Admitting that you’ve been dumped by a friend. Last week, my story “Why Do Moms Have a Hard Time Making Friends?” ran on the Huffington Post. We were […]

Ask Miri: My Husband Lied and My Anxiety Is Killing Me

September 26, 2011 by


Dear Miri, I’m glad I found this blog.  I hope you can shed some honest light for me and perhaps help me with a problem.  I’m a married 30-something with 2 kids.  Pretty cliché life right now, working full-time, running kids around, very busy, etc.  My husband and I got married when I was pregnant […]

September 14, 2011 by


everyone has a story…if we just listen Guest Post by Gail Doktor One of my dear friends took me out for a day of pampering just a few weeks after my youngest daughter died. At the time, I was still shell-shocked and trying to cope with loss. The biggest decision of my day was what color […]

Remember the people you invited to your wedding, how important and relevant they were? They don’t all stay relevant and important. I think this is great news. It’s a testament to the fact that we change and grow and continue to re-access our relationships. My sister was getting her hair colored. She does, about three times […]

Addio Vs. Ciao: A Daughter’s Italian Journey & A Mother’s Deepest Fear

July 18, 2011 by


Guest Post By Gail Doktor There are two ways to say good-bye: Forever, or see you again soon. In Italian “addio” means “to God” and is a permanent good-bye. You’d say it to someone who won’t be returning. Or someone who is dying. By contrast, “ciao” or “arrivaderci” means something like “until the next time […]

Divorce Kicked My Ass–Yoga Lifted It (Sorta)

June 27, 2011 by


In a regrettable moment of over-sharing, I admitted that I’d considered yoga teacher training to the women I take daily yoga with. Last week when our yoga teacher was on a pilgrimage to New Mexico, I was called upon to substitute. I had said I was thinking about the training. I had not said I […]
