Humbled to be interviewed by La'Isha Magazine in Israel. Ronen would have been so thrilled - I've never known anyone with more love for his heritage. When we visited Israel together on our honeymoon, he was bursting at the seams with excitement. I had never been before and he had so much to show me. Remembering him this morning, driving us through the desert; windows open, Hebrew music on the radio and a massive smile on his tanned face. Continue reading

During the last week of the longest year ever in the history of the world; as I placed waffles #79850509577738 and 79850509577739 in the toaster for my dudes' breakfasts: THIS. To be in such company! For my writing to be written about so thoughtfully! A massive gift. Thank you, Scout Brobst! Continue reading

It's been a whirlwind of a week. The Savannah Book Festival was a true joy - star treatment, girlfriends in tow and the wonderful Jonathan Rabb. Then onto gorgeous Orange County where I got to meet terrific fellow authors and kind readers. Then, Disney with the fam. Do I feel like I've been run over by a mac truck? Yes. Was it worth it? Also yes. Continue reading

There are so many reasons why yesterday's reading at Thank You Books was special: 1. 4 members of our "heart family" as Ari has coined it drove and explored the city with us: Sarah Baldauf and Chris Fickes #keepinitbubbly 2. Got to hang with Barcley Roedder Gerndt, Caroline Springfield and Daphne Dunn Williams - friends for years and years who I wish I saw more. 2. Haddasah of Birmingham with Mindy Cohen and Jennifer Cordover sponsored the event and my fellow Jewess love was electric. 3. Kristen Iskandrian, co-owner of the store and beautiful author of Motherest was first introduced... Continue reading

I couldn't be more excited to be speaking at the Savannah Book Festival on Saturday, February 15th. The company I'm in! Wow. What's even better? I'll be in conversation with fellow writer and true mensch Jonathan Rabb. Please come see me at the First Baptist Church Sanctuary at 9 AM. I know, I know it's early but we all know that the early bird gets the...signed book. And a dangerously caffeinated and thereby entertaining author. Thank you! Continue reading
