I’m blaming everything on menopause. It’s just easier that way.

I was the one who thought I'd never go through menopause. Of course, I knew I would one day stop ovulating, but I had a feeling all those ugly symptoms my friends would bemoan about were not going to affect me. Every time a girlfriend would grab paper within her reach and create a makeshift ...

Old School

Thomas Wolfe said, "You can't go home again," but that doesn't apply to people from Rhode Island. Tom and I went back to Providence this weekend for his 30th reunion from Brown.

First Snow.

You just never know what you're going to see in NYC. It's the most random, spontaneous, mind boggling city to live in, which is exactly the reason I love it. Walk anywhere and you'll find an instagrammable moment - shameless plug: (#emptynestnyc). When I first moved here, I couldn't quite get the hang of doing ...
