Rainbows Rainbows Everywhere

Jul 2, 2015 by

Some of you may have heard the news….

Gay marriage happened. Well, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), in a close decision, found state laws banning gay marriage to be unconstitutional – which I believe whole-heartedly to be the correct decision, and I do know a few things about constitutional law.

The decision was announced Friday morning, June 26, 2015 and then, the internet exploded into tears and joy and rainbows, lots and lots of rainbows.

 

It is so ordered.

People are already sick and tired of seeing rainbows on social media but I can’t get enough of them. The people that are tired of rainbows aren’t the ones that have spent ridiculous amounts of time and energy trying to stand tall and find their place in society. This was not an easy road for ANYONE and the plaintiffs in all of the cases that led up to this point fought long and hard.

Road Rage

Jun 18, 2015 by

I’ve been thinking about road rage a lot lately with all of my commuting to work. I know my wife thinks I’m particularly edgy behind the wheel and I’ve been putting a lot of energy into consciously changing that. I recognize that I am the kind of driver that thinks everyone needs to pay attention, move along quickly and don’t do stupid things. I tend to think that drivers slower than me as “annoying, stupid festers” and those faster than me are “maniacs.” Yes, I know. I need to work on this.

Sometimes, I think it’s necessary to remember how preciously life really is and how we need to look at the inside of our own cars, including the precious cargo we’re carrying around, to remind ourselves that every other car has precious cargo too and we all want to get home in one piece.

Facebook Truth

Jun 4, 2015 by

I think many of us have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. I realize that I go through period where I wonder why I feel the need to post things and mostly it’s because FB is our connection to the bulk of our friends and family. We have family that we never see in person. We have friends scattered all over. I don’t truly like being “off the grid” where no one knows how or what we are doing. But I am very aware of the need or drive to post things like crazy. Really, Facebook is the platform for our public sharing. Before Facebook, it was showing pictures in your wallet, posting pictures or artwork all over your office, sharing photo albums with dinner guests, telling stories about your wonderful children at the water cooler, etc.

To my friends…

May 21, 2015 by

I miss you all. I miss my friends that I don’t see all the time. I miss my high school friends, college friends, my sorority sisters, my tennis, soccer and softball friends, my ski buddies, my law school friends, my work friends and local friends a lot. I know facebook allows for that long distance connection, but I still miss a lot of the in-person communications, the stories, the experiences, the laughs, the tears, etc. Since motherhood, work and just life in general have gotten in the way of physically keeping in touch, I’ve had a lot of guilt about not making time for more of my friends. I have sorority sisters that live an hour or so away that I haven’t seen in FOREVER. I have 10 law school friends all living within a few miles of each other and I haven’t seen them since graduation.

Double Moms on Mother’s (Mothers’) Day! #unfiltered

May 7, 2015 by

Around Mother’s Day, I like to talk about moms: my wonderful mom, being a mom, being surrounded by amazing moms, etc. Two years ago, I posted about my mom and I can’t top that ode to her. I’ve also posted about our life as moms, especially in a two mom family.

To me, having a two mom household is special and sometimes I’m torn between emphasizing how special it is and just wanted to say “what’s the big deal, we’re no different than anyone else.”
