Handle Your Finances
In my job I work with families who are going through divorce and its accompanying set of emotional and financial upheavals.

Me: Pk, before you leave
Me: I need a pump up. I am tired and have this cough
Me: I just need to get to 5:00

Pk: remember the edge of glory
Pk: hang on to the precipice
Pk: feel the way the wind feels from up there
Pk: it's impt too
Pk: i'm gonna light candles and think about you

I’ve been in food/blog-love with smittenkitchen.com author Deb Perelman for years. She takes beautiful pictures of the food she makes. She also sneaks in shots of her adorable toddler, Jacob. She writes simply and honestly about her food. She’s awesome. This 9/11 red wine cake post is Deb’s genuine and touching story of her 9/11 feelings, her career path, and how she made her...
