It's been almost a month since I published a recommendation list. When I first set out to do these, I told myself that at the point it felt like another item on the to-do list, and not just fun, I'd pause. Now, I'm back to it, and I'm excited to share all of the delightful experiences I've had over the…

There were 122 Black Women Running for Congress. Here they are, organized by state.

I kept seeing all of these articles about how there's a record-number of Black women running for Congress, but none of them said who they are or what they stand for. Those articles also failed to mention the high number of Latinos running for office, but that's a different post. The reality is that America is changing and you can't…

There is a lot to be angsty about, but…

I read Mary Trump’s book so you wouldn’t have to. You’re welcome.

For several weeks we've been hearing about Mary Trump. She is President Donald Trump's niece, and her new book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the Most Dangerous Man in the World," has been described as a scathing takedown of the president. I listened to it on Audible, because I love tea, both literally and figuratively. As…

A few years ago, I read a book called Calling in the One, and in it there was a challenge to write five pages of things you're grateful for. Five pages feels daunting, but it's not about the pages, it's about the energy generated by the pages. Spoiler Alert: By the time you get to page five, you've gone from…
