This is my manifesto

This post is really long. Feel free to skip if you aren't Mormon or interested in Mormonism or interested in the gay marriage post that I took down, or if you came here for a silly, funny post. I apologize it took me so long to write. Lolly says I have what she calls...

FFAQ–Let’s try this again 😉

Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA. I have a post that I've been working on talking about last weekend, but it is getting really looooong (but also really important) and isn't ready yet--probably will be on Monday but don't quote me on that because I'm not known for...

Ode to Jenny or Sharon, my new soul mate

I almost connected with my soul-mate today. On Facebook. I got a friend request from a girl named Jenny Hall. She looked familiar, so I accepted it. It wasn't long before we had a conversation that has left me, I'll admit, a little confused. And hurt. The conversation...

One of these things is not like the other

So, we're on a small trip to Portland. We are staying in a hotel, which the girls love, and this morning we all rolled out of bed and decided to get breakfast. We were up for maybe five or ten minutes before heading out the door. Yet when we got to Burger King (which...

Marriage advice + talk of mixed orientation marriage

Caveat: I have a really bad cold. So my brain feels really foggy. But I wanted to get this out there. So, last week's FFAQ question came from Anonymous. She asks: Being married to a wonderful man, who happens to be gay, I wonder if you have any advice? How common are...

A birthday post for Lolly

Yesterday was Lolly's birthday. She turned 35. I have known her since I was 3 and she was 5. So that's 30 years. 30 years of knowing one of the most amazing people on this planet. I'm freaking lucky. Here, in no particular order, are 35 things I love about Lolly Shea....
