With all the turmoil in my life over the past year, it is incredibly easy (and common) for me to forget how good a life I actually do have.
My life is clearly not perfect, and I do not have everything I would ever desire, but sometimes that’s ok. As we like to tell our [...]
February is the month of love. A time for romance and engagements and marriages.
I want to talk about divorce. But I promise I don’t want ot ruin the mood of the month. I want to expand on it.
You see, it’s without a doubt that most of us enter marriage in love and blissfully [...]
“Who wins?” my good friend asked her husband a year when she relayed to him my story and probable divorce. “Penney is the right answer,” she said, without waiting for his reply.
I was happy to have her tell me that, happy thinking at least I would have friends through this very trying
time. And [...]
I recently volunteered to talk on a panel of women for the career night at UM’s collegiate Sigma Kappa
chapter. I admit I did so slightly reluctantly, in part because the changes in my life have left me with much less time with my children and every minute is even that much more precious to [...]

You see, at the beginning of Kindergarten last September, I [...]
This year has been the longest year of my life, and yet I feel like I’ve missed it all through a haze of emotions. I’ve felt like I died a thousand times a day for a thousand days only to wake up on Jan. 2.
You see, I’m getting a divorce.
I spent my [...]
“NO, I WANNA DO IT!”
Two is one of my very favorite ages. Having a two-year-old little girl for the first time is a fantastic and amazing thing. Every day she learns new things and tries new things and teaches me new things. I couldn’t adore her more if I tried.
But sometimes, [...]
It was a beautiful Memorial weekend (it could have been any weekend, but it happened to be
Memorial weekend), and we were staying in the adorable cabin we had booked well in advance just 50 feet from the sandy shore of Lake Huron.
There was hardly a cloud in the bright blue sky, and the [...]
A UM field hockey game. A hike. A trip to the dog park. The neighborhood Easter Egg hunt. Earth day “Day of Service” for the elementary school. Two soccer games. Three soccer practices. One bike trip. Two Tigers’ games.
Delayed. Postponed. Canceled. Rescheduled due to rain.
This has been a very frustrating spring [...]
