Hello there!

Welcome to my little corner of the ether. This is where you will find information about my books and musings on life and love in New York City. To stay in the loop about all things ADR...


"Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into."

Wayne Dyer

Tomorrow is my birthday. At 3:38am I will turn thirty-three. 'Tis true.

And I have mixed feelings about this fact. Thirty-three happens to be my favorite number. Because it was Larry Bird's number. Every night of my childhood, Sister C and I said I love you three times and then we said, in unison, times eleven. So. As far as I am concerned, this is a good number. A great one. An auspicious one. I have a hunch this is going to be a good year. I'm feeling optimistic.

But. As per my little girls, it's a big number. Now I know that I am still relatively young and I feel quite young, but I'm no longer nineteen. I'm an adult. A mom to three. A wife. To make a long story short, I'm no longer a kid.

This might seem obvious to you, and certainly not newsworthy, but this is big for me. I still feel like a little girl sometimes even though I have three little girls of my own. There is a part of me, a big part, that does not want to grow up. But I have no choice, do I?

And so. Here I am. On the eve of my Larry Day as I will call it. Pondering age and adulthood and abundance. Abundance? Yup, abundance.

Because on birthdays, we are often asked what we want. And, yes, I want many things. Many things. But the most important things I already have. These things are my world. I stumbled upon a brilliant quote recently, the one above. And I will share it again:

Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into. (Wayne Dyer)

Tomorrow? It might be a tricky day, but it will also be terrific. It will be a big day of little girls. It will be a day of tuning in.

{Thanks, Tree, for the girls' sweet-as-can-be matching ice cream PJs!}


How do you feel about birthdays? About getting older? Do you agree that abundance is something we must tune into? Are you good at tuning in?
