Beauty is ...

Thursday, September 24, 2015
In a word, beauty is vulnerability. So says my friend and photographer Shannon Michelle.

She photographed me a few years back in my lingerie. It was a boudoir shoot that became a framed photograph for Andy. Even though I’d known Shannon for a while, I had to down a couple of drinks just to loosen up and feel comfortable enough to take my clothes off in front of a professional lens.
I’ve always had a pretty good relationship with my body. It has flaws, like all bodies do, but I’m mostly good with mine. My grandmother stressed good posture growing up so I almost never slouch. I don’t exercise much and, thanks to genetics, I don’t really have to. I eat well and makes sure I’m not taking in more calories than I can burn. I’m also terribly vain. If I notice a few clinging pounds, I cut back/move more/change things to “fix” that. I wish my butt and hips were a little fuller (like Beyoncé) but everyone wants what they don’t have, I guess.

I'm an expert!

Apparently, Boston Weddings Magazine thinks I know what I'm doing. Joke's on them. I'm making this shit up as I go.

A decade of love

Thursday, June 11, 2015


The man and I celebrated 10 years of marriage last week. We celebrated by throwing a wonderful party at the same hotel where we got married in 2005. It was like a mini version of our wedding, with a renewal of our vows and a "reception" that featured the same menu from our first one.

The fine people at Moho Creative captured everything beautifully and we are lucky to have so much love in our lives.

A new year

Is it just me or did 2014 zip by in a blur?
It seems crazy that the year is already over. It’s a cliché that the first couple of years with a kid passes you by without you remembering much, but this is just weird.
The last few months have been … a bit of a whirlwind. I went back through the year’s blog posts to try to remind myself of all that’s happened. Here’s the bottomline:
We’re happy, she’s healthy and we’re looking forward to big things in 2015.
