I know, I know…..we’re on vacation. How can I be posting while at Sesame Place? Scheduled posts, people……right now I’m speaking to the you who is in the future, and you’re hearing my words from the past, just like that Keanau Reeves movie with the magical mailbox that sucked something awful. Does this mean that Tumblr has some sort of supernatural ability? Without dicing words, yes. FEAR THE TUMBLR, folks.
I haven’t had a column up on Nona Brooklyn for a few weeks, so I’m making is up to you people with TWO articles back to back.
The first article was written as a response to many of the emails I received my last article, Confessions of a Mother Chef, unexpectedly went viral. Seriously, I am so touched by many of the comments and letters, and had no idea something I wrote late at night after the kids were finally in bed would resonate so loudly with people. I’m not 100% comfortable with sharing some of the things I wrote about in the follow-up, but after I spoke to a few women who had written thank you notes for the last article, I felt it was something essential to talk about. I hope it becomes a starting point for lots of women out there who had the same experience to be able to speak openly about it.
The second article is just a bunch of smart-ass satire about my struggles in getting a book deal. It WILL happen one day, I swear- I work too hard and am way to persistent for it not to.
Hope you guys enjoy both! And as always, leave comments on the Nona Brooklyn website and Facebook page- they are a small business and comments really help the growth of the site!
