     Christmas 2019 came and went quite quickly. Yes, it was partly due to a Hawaiian getaway earlier in the month, but a larger part of it is that divorce performed somewhat of a Christmas-ectomy on me. Ironically, my life is even more joyful since then, but it isn’t...

What if you could go back in time?

     Last week, I had a chance to visit a place I hadn’t been since 1982, my great-grandmother’s house in Nogales. Arizona. Barely.

Have you let go of a dear holiday tradition after divorce? 

     Not really a blog post, just a little holiday story. What holiday tradition is dearest to your heart? For me, that is an easy one.

     Creating home is important to me. My first words were “home...

     I admit it, I’m hopelessly sentimental. One reason that I tried to avoid divorce through all the years of X bringing it up was to preserve the place for our memories to matter. Even now, I’m like the knight in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade- spending 700 years...

  Whether you can't be bothered to deck the halls or you're a junior Martha Stewart like I am, going through a divorce around the holidays is not as easy as (pumpkin) pie.  Here is an updated version of last year’s holiday blog post. Please join in the “Happy (As Can B...
