I like to think that I still have it. For example, while listening to an Imagine Dragons song the other day, my 10-year-old daughter nearly fell out of her seat belt when she realized I knew the lyrics. I didn’t miss an episode of “Breaking Bad” and I rock a fedora. But when it... Read more »

When I got an invitation to a World Series party recently, I immediately RSVP’d an enthusiastic “yes!” because I love a good party!

The third Saturday in October is Sweetest Day, often called a second Valentine’s Day. It’s a holiday primarily celebrated in the Great Lakes region of the United States and Midwest, so depending on where you were raised, you may have grown up without ever hearing about it.

It’s no secret that moms make things easier for our families–we are an ever-present GPS assistant for our kids (“Mom, where is my backpack/permission slip/baseball glove/favorite blue shirt?”), the keeper of the group calendar (when was the last time your husband made a dentist appointment?), and more often than not, chief meal-planner, grime-tackler, birthday-party-planner...

Very few occasions are more purely joyful than a baby’s christening or baptism. Not only do they represent the remission of original sin (can’t go wrong with that one), they’re unfreighted by the weight of expectation, not to mention cost and high budget, that can surround a wedding. But if you don’t regularly attend... Read more »

Anniversaries are a special way to keep the romance alive year after year. Unless it’s a big milestone year, such as 25 years or 50 years, most anniversaries are celebrated just between the two of you.

Let me start with a disclaimer: None of MY relatives are lazy. And no one in my husband’s family is, either. Nope. But I know there are a few lazy folks out there, hanging out on a recliner in a Dorito-crumbed tee-shirt without a care in the world. So maybe they are related to... Read more »

Congratulations, you’ve been asked to be a godparent! It’s a big deal–not least because it means that your friends thought you were the kind of grownup they wouldn’t mind their kid taking some tips from. You’ve said, “I’d be honored.” You’ve bought a new church-friendly dress or picked out the right tie. You know... Read more »
