Introducing Hill Country Hill Tribers (And a giveaway for Mother’s Day!)

I'm so excited to have Jessica Goudeau here today sharing about one of my favorite organizations (and Etsy shops!) around. Half of the Christmas presents I gave this past year came from the women of Hill Country Hill Tribers. And I'm thrilled to let Jessica share with you about their story, just in time for Mother's Day. ...

My Chalkboard: Jane Kenyon

    I love Jane Kenyon (who died in 1995). She was the first poet I ever connected with. This quote is from a lecture she once gave titled "Everything I Know About Poetry."

Of course we can’t have it all. (But still we can flourish.)

I’m sure you probably read this month’s featured article in the Atlantic. If you haven’t, read it here, and then read all 18 gazillion responses to it around the web. (Or, if you’d rather, just a couple of them here and here.) If you are a woman or a man who loves a woman, or a man who one day may love a woman, you ...
