"Maybe nothing lasts forever, even when you stay together."  —Sheryl Crow, "My Favorite Mistake" Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing. I don't know them, of course; but, still, this news saddens me more than the average celebrity split. It's...
There was a lot about my first pregnancy I wasn't ready for. I hated the new limitations on my body, and had a hard time adjusting: I was hungry, hot, swollen, and out-of-breath all the time. I worked full-time,...
In recent years, I've often heard young couples who live in the Broad Ripple area make a similar statement: "We absolutely love living here, but once we have kids, we're moving to Fishers/Carmel/Noblesville/Avon/Greenwood." I can certainly understand how Broad Ripple...
