I am so happy to hear you write this! There's no turning back now & why would you want to! It's time you understand what everyone else has always seen in you, how fantastic, funny & truly special you are. Everything you could ever want is all there waiting for you, you just need to go get it xoxo


Read mightygirl.com. She is our age and fantastic. I have linked to her at various times. She was the inspiration for me to start the life list blog.

You have never been under the radar in your group of friends, but this post makes so much sense. It really does set up your origins very well.


Mandy. This is amazing! Who new you had such a gift for writing! I love it please keep it up. BUT if you mention me in any in this it better only be in the bestest light?! Clear? And as far as the fourth child in a family of four girls"? Who did we drop? Jamie or Shelia? I know it was not Robin (never happen) and surely I am far to amusing to be dropped.

Can't wait for more material, it's like reading a book you can't put down, you just have to wait for the next chapter to be written. Very witty and insightful as I would have expected. Congratulations to you on finally getting this off the ground that I remember you and Missy talking about 10 years ago. When's "The Art of Loafing" coming out?


I agree with Christopher! Please keep it coming. It gets better and better
