How To Write a Press Release That Will Get My Attention

My inbox is daunting. I get hundreds of e-mails a day. Most of them are pitches for a story or a press release about a future event, but 90% of those press releases get an instant “delete” before I even open them because they are junk. In order to send a press release that will...

Pin It! On Pinterest

If there is a social media site out there, chances are I’m on it. I love to Facebook, YouTube, Tweet and Tout, but my newest obsession is Pinterest. When I was growing up, I had a cork board on my wall at home where I would pin pictures I cut out of magazines. It was full of things I loved, things...

Shiloh the Magic Pony and Me

I’m not sure if Shiloh the Magic Pony is a he or a she, but I do know *it* is one good looking pony. Shiloh has a perfect tan, deep blue eyes and a silky blonde mane. We have a lot in common, too. We both love live music, especially the Dave Matthews Band. And we...

The Cold Truth About Hot Yoga

American Cancer Society Orchid City Ball

There aren’t many things that upset me more than seeing a child suffering. Last night, I met two special and very brave children who have been through more in the past few years than most people have to go through in a lifetime. Brianna Curry and Joe Joe Matuella and their mothers, Dawn and Suzanne...

Two Flat Tires in One Day

I got two busted tires today. At the same time. Here’s how it went down. Returning from a trip to Tar-jhay with my 19-month-old. He’s hungry, he’s tired and I’m trying to get home as quickly as possible. I turn around to console him and…. WHAM! Curb. It was a big frickin’ curb, too. You should see the gaping...

Wonder Woman

I am obsessed with Wonder Woman. As a child, if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up — I would tell you Wonder Woman. I never missed an episode of the TV series with Linda Carter (I have the entire collection on DVD).   And I used to lasso my younger...
