I haven’t stopped eating since December 11, 2011. I tried. But every attempt at any sort of control was futile.

A potato chip to nip the truth. A French fry to mute a cry. And anything covered in chocolate (and I don’t even really like chocolate) to just push down even...

It always starts with this question from my husband:

“Should we have a yard sale?”

Young Hillary: Be sure to keep in touch C.C…OK?

Young C.C.: Well sure…we’re friends, aren’t we?

― From the movie, Beaches, 1988

I spent this past Memorial Day with four girlfriends in celebration of a mutual landmark birthday. We met five years prior for a really big land...

“That dress is adorable!  Can you actually go sleeveless? Those days are gone for me,” wrote my friend in reference to a cute dress I’m planning to wear to a GRAMMY event.

I replied, “I’m wearing a DKNY sweater. My arms aren’t very good either.  Whose are at 51?”

Tomorrow is my 55th birthday. Fifty. Five. I feel as if I’m walking along the edge of two very disparate parts of my life. The younger, vibrant, energetic me. And a me that is starting to slow down a bit and is enjoying short haircuts and sensible shoes.
