Hi! I’m Carla, Jersey girl gone New England.
I support Monster Squad as a superior movie to Goonies, Goya crackers with cream cheese as a complete breakfast, and Gilmore Girls as therapy.
I stand alongside anyone who believes in the magic of Teen Witch.
My low key super power is the ability to connect people. I might forget your name but I’ll remember your dreams and find at least one person who can help you make them a reality.
As a kid, I wanted to be a lawyer because of Claire Huxtable. I thought it was because she was so cool but also…maybe she was the only successful brown woman I saw on TV. Either way, I did not become a lawyer.
My non-denominational prayer for the world –
Start with yourself.
I write here about single motherhood, raising daughters, and my life long obsession with storytelling in all its forms. I have my sights set on adding freelance writer and children’s author to my resume in 2018. I hope you’ll visit often and feel some kind of way about what you read here.
(keeping it ’90s, what can I say?)
I once did a thing. Twice. And I’m damn proud of it. LTYM alum for life.
