So. I spent 15 years working in television. The length of time it takes for a human to turn from an adorable baby into an insufferable teenager. Read: A LONG TIME.

And it got me thinking: While I love writing, I realized I was missing out on communicating with you all in a way I have been so comfortable doing for so long–by just, well, talking to you.

That’s been the genesis of this new Video Friday feature I’ve started; I really want to use this medium to start conversations with people about topics that pertain to all of us. I’m talking about motherhood, work, life, relationships, woo woo science (ermagerd ILOVEIT) and more.

So let’s make this space Our Space. Not only do I want to hear your ideas for topics you’d like to hear discussed (I’ve got lots of smart friends in high places who I’m pretty much bribing to appear on my little corner of the internet), but I also want to hear about you.

Who are you? Where are you from? Whatcha doin’ today? And how did you find this space?

Let’s talk! I mean it!! Let’s make this a space for some good conversation. And some good videos. Where my kids interrupt me. Like every time I make one. Every. Time.


(Good thing they’re cute.)

Okay, so without further adieu, here we go with My 10 Things.
