It took a couple of dry sticks. And there was fire. A great invention for our survival and thrival. That's what we do. Create fire. Play with fire. C...
This film -- Kate & Lily -- is about two friends, Kate and Lily. It's about how women perceive one another and how we can be simultaneously so evil and so sweet.
By teaching your kids early on the importance of these traits, chances are they'll avoid those false friendships and hold tight to the ones that truly matter.
I have met many people over the span of my life. Most of these people I call friends. But there are different categories of friends. Allow me to break it down.
Tip of the week: Know what you can afford and don't be afraid to say no. You can always say yes later when your financial planning pays off with some big dividends.
In other words, what would happen if you brought the two of us -- an Israeli and a Palestinian -- together on neutral ground. Could we overcome bitter lines of division and mistrust by engaging each other in open, honest, face-to-face dialogue?
Ladies' nights and last-minute dinner plans were easy to accommodate when neither of us had a significant other, but the second a man entered my life I'd become flaky and unreliable, always canceling plans if it meant getting to see my boyfriend.
The other day I was having a conversation with a friend of mine about friendship and the ups downs we all go through those relationships. Our talk made me stop and think about all the friends I have had in my life and how meaningful they all have been in different ways and for various reasons.
I miss the way things were back in the day. I miss how spending time together used to be as easy as walking across the hall or picking up the phone to say "I've got wine and I'm coming over."

If you're kid is 2 and your friend's is 6 months, be careful how much kind and helpful advice you give, thinking you're just one mom sharing with another. This one can backfire and make you look like a know-it-all.
Go lose your breath, be the reason so many people breath again, and keep your eyes wide open, because your life is seriously, most definitely, meant to change the world more than you could possibly imagine.
This is a subject I have flirted with for decades. Growing up, I was considered a tomboy who enjoyed the company of my male friends more than my fem...
have friends from all walks of life and from all over the world. I have no desire to be in a clique. Special girlfriends have given me meaningful advice. My interest in welcoming new people into my life, my travels and my years spent living in Honolulu opened the doors to these fascinating and worldly women.
She's the one who excitedly talks about the get-together all week leading up to it and sends cute texts about how she "can't wait" to hang out. When you walk into the restaurant, one of the other gals tells you she's not coming, since she's tired/kids are sick/husband is working late.
