When I asked my brother if there was anything I could make for my niece for the holidays, I was a little overwhelmed when he suggested a My Little Pony — Friendship is Magic plushie of Pinkie Pie. I'd never sewn a stuffed animal before, and I'd be a pony newbie creating something to give to a pony expert!

I am Pagan, and I have always hated the repetitive, annoying, or offensive questions that occur every time I come out of the broom closet. Until a nativity scene changed my mind about those repetitive, annoying, and offensive questions.
I love cooking, but I'm also a graduate student in the tiniest of apartments. Neither of which are conducive to homemade meals. On the other hand, canned soups tend to have too much sodium for me. I have finally found a recipe that not only tastes amazing, but requires very little work.
I am a divorced woman who will be getting re-married soon. Part of me wants my daughter and I to have the same name, but I also don't want to be stuck with the name that is associated with such a crap time in my life. Since I can't change our child's last name to that of my husband, is there anything that I can do to make our new family sound more coherent?
The holidays are fast approaching. Both my husband and I come from families who love the holidays, so we both are super excited to have our own place to holiday-ify and celebrate together.

I now hold a very normal job. I work in the finance industry in the city, and I love it, but there always has been (and I suspect always will be) part of me that wonders if I should have done something more creative… Am I wasting potential talent? What if I'm withholding some grand work of literature from the world because I didn't take that route?
