So we had COVID-19. And it was rough. I would say that my husband and I did not have mild symptoms, but we were also never hospitalized. I think we land somewhere in that middle ground of mild to...
  When I moved to San Antonio seven years ago, it was one of the biggest adventures I had ever embarked on—and one of the loneliest. I knew no one besides my husband—we moved here because of his job. In...

Spinderella, cut it up one time. Let's talk about (Texas) Sex (Ed), baby You may or may not remember what if anything you were taught in school about sex. I’m not talking about what we learned from friends or scribbles...

Developmental delays. Loss of motor function. Feeding tubes. I wondered if the infectious disease specialist noticed my jaw dropping more and more as he spoke. Thank God he wasn’t naming the prognosis for my son, who was born with...
Motherhood. It's exhausting. It's overwhelming. It is the best thing to ever happen to you, but it can also be a thief if you let it. Motherhood gives you perfect tiny humans who grow up to be bigger perfect...

Quarantine is a lot of things, but sexy isn’t one of them. It doesn’t matter if you’re home alone, empty nesters, or home with a flock of children flailing about, sex just may not be on the brain right...
Social distancing. It’s a term I’d never even heard of until last week. Now it’s the phrase that’s supposed to dictate how we live our lives, at least for right now. I’ve read the articles and watched the visual...
