I’m a Kansas girl living in the big city. The Second City. Chicago.
I thought about starting this blog for two years and finally decided to stop thinking and start doing. I wanted She’sWrite because I wanted to write. I write for a living, always have, but it’s been as a journalist. Yearning for objectivity. While some stories touched my heart, others bored me to tears. This blog I wanted to write for myself. To say what I want to say and how I want to say it. No rules. Just me.
I’m a mom, a wife and a career woman, who loves food, red wine, clothes and talking about all of the above. Among my friends I’m the one who helps bring people together, the one who schedules the brunches, girls’ night out or weekend getaways. Women, as my husband says, are strange creatures. We are. We’re strange and wonderful and I love us.
Moreso I love bringing us together. There’s nothing like talking with your girls or even gabbing with the stranger sitting next to you at the nailshop. There’s a connectivity there that’s empowering.
I want She’sWrite to be a place like that. Where you find there’s open and honest discussion with people who share your frustrations, fears, dreams and affections. And you get a little boost.
Hopefully this blog will give a bit of something to everyone. Validations for moms that they’re not crazy, for career women that it is tough, we just have to be tougher, also for us everyday girls that it’s important to be goofy just for the sheer fun and release. And for guys reading She’sWrite, maybe it’ll help give you a little more insight to the strange wonderful creatures that are us women
