Reality Marriage: Are You A Sneaker, Quasher or Restorer?

Sorry for the long delay in posts here at this intersection. Things have been a bit bungled lately on the technical end, but I’m back with this entertaining read from saint and sinner Irene. At 38, she has never married; […]

The Kiss: from “The Love Dare” Series

Self-described “author, artist and everyday radical” Emily Wierenga is a new friend in the blogosphere. Her latest book debuts on Mother’s Day: Mom in the Mirror explores issues of beauty and body image after pregnancy, and as a survivor of […]
