I went to my first music festival as a carefree 20-something. It involved camping, no showers for three days, and scenes from port-a-potties I’ll never forget (it was as bad as you’d imagine).

They might have fallen there. But more importantly, have you seen the girls’ shoes?” “Nothing’s more important than coffee. They’re on the box […]
Well, a year after I had my C-section, I’m done feeling weird about it. You know what? I’m not inadequate; I’m a magic trick.
