Screw Mother's Day

A post I did for my friend Louise over at Singlewith.com. Not grumpy! Just tired! This sentence is purely so I can put an exclamation point after it! Divorce Published on May 6th, 2015 | by Stephanie Dolgoff A Single… Continue Reading →

Hot children in the city

People ask me what it was like growing up in New York City, which is where I was raised and am raising my daughters. I’m still growing up here, at age 46, every damn day. And like most people who… Continue Reading →
