With Hollywood divorces splashed across magazines and news headlines, it’s hard to remember that that there are working marriages out there.

My Lips Are Sealed: 18 and Never Been Kissed

I am not your average eighteen-year-old girl. I prefer watching sports over trashy reality television. I am comfortable debating politics, the finer points of baseball, or the specifics of at home hair color. It is quite a contradiction, one that I don’t think guys my age know how to deal with. At least, that’s what […]

I learned a lot about sex as a teenager by thumbing through the pages of women’s magazines while in line at the grocery store. At least, I thought I did. I took mental notes of all the props, and the places I was supposed to put my fingers, and then traded my “expert” knowledge with […]

Last week, Curvy Girl contributor Pish Posh broke down her hate for Valentine’s Day (or VD, as she calls it), but I thought I would chime in and let all of you lovers know, not all single girls hate this holiday. I don’t hate that couples go out to the movies and a romantic dinner. I don’t […]

Our life is not always sexy. There is a lot of poop. We have three children and a dog.  There’s a lot of poop and puke. Yes, lots and lots of puke, too. There’s morning breath and garbage that needs to be taken out. Dishes need done, snow needs shoveled, bills need paid, and groceries need to […]

He was a senior. I was a freshman. He was everything I thought I wanted. He was tall, handsome, smart, and funny. He said the things I wanted to hear; he promised me forever, with a big house, and four kids, who I could stay home with while he worked to provide for us. At fourteen, […]
