writer. editor. curious + common.


I’m truly honored and humbled to share that I’m up on Brain, Child’s site today. I’ve long admired Brain, Child Magazine because, quite simply, it features consistently quality content about all aspects of motherhood. Their contributing writers are some of my most profound writer crushes—the ones I’d “follow” anywhere.

I’m awed and grateful Brain, Child has chosen to run one of my pieces on their blog. “Now I Mother From a Distance” is near and dear to my heart, especially lately—as it depicts the poignant ambivalence of bidding farewell to the comfort and simplicity of those early months of motherhood, facing the complex uncertainty of what’s to come, and, despite distance, growing, and going forward, together.

You can read the full piece here:  Now I Mother From a Distance.

    Incredible. It brought me sniffles as I finally read what I’ve been feeling lately with my babies growing up and have just recently stopped nursing. It’s a really difficult process to realize that your babies, whom you’ve invested so much energy and love into need you a little less after these transitions.

    Thank you for your words.
