I Still Text my Godmother. She passed away 8 Months Ago.

I have a secret. I guess it’s not really a secret if I’m writing a blog about it and putting it out there on the internet, but, nonetheless, it’s nothing something I’m shouting from the rooftops.
I text a dead person. 

Wow. That’s a sentence, huh? 

Trust me, it was as painfu...

How Downloading Keepster Changed the Way I Text

Texting & I have a serious love affair

As a writer and big-time talker, I’m one of those that lived for a good note passed during class, a particularly exciting AIM conversation, a text from some boy or friend that made me flutter.

Not shocking to report that I text full paragraphs.  My friends joke that I...

The post that’s been so hard to write

This is the post that I’ve been avoiding. This is the one that’s been staring me down, the elephant in the room. This is the blog about loss. It’s about the loss of loved ones, the words that they leave behind and our enduring need to keep those words and memories close.

A Generation Without Love Letters

I’m twenty-five and I’ve only received one love letter...

Pathetic, I know, but it was a good one. In it, I was compared to light, and to ‘the concept of music’ and time. I’m not sure what the guy meant, but I’ve never forgotten the line, so I guess it served its purpose. There’s even an a...

My Mom's Messages Matter Most

My Mom is my best friend. 

I know, that sounds like a cliche just in time for Mother’s Day but really, ask me any other day of the year, and I’ll tell you the same thing. She jokingly has always said “I can’t be your best friend, I gotta be your Mom!” but in all reality, she’s perfected bot...

I’ve written a great deal about my personal story and relationships, and how they inspired me to create Keepster. But the more I keep my eyes and ears open to the world, the stronger my conviction about the need to preserve texting conversations grows.

Why I Give My Kids Gifts to Celebrate Mother's Day

Another year, another Mother’s Day is rolling around. I can’t believe it - you blink, and 26 years years of devoted and endless mothering have come and gone. To say it has been the privilege of a lifetime to be a mother would be a true understatement. That's why this Mother's Day, I decided to give my children gifts to cel...
