The Miserable Bitch Cocktail

In The Truth by dancedivajen

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog. I wish I could say I’ve been busy. I wish I could say it’s because of all the “things” I’ve got going on, all the Zoom meetings and phone calls. I want to tell you I haven’t written because I’ve been meeting my friends for “social distance” wine dates or …

Truth is Power

In The Truth by dancedivajen

This is not a “pity blog”. I’m not looking for calls or messages. I don’t want any cards or shout-outs about how “it could be worse” or “I’ve got this” because right about now, I don’t really agree. I don’t “have this” and it’s truly all relative. Oh, and by the way…I hate Google. Sorry, for those of you who …

It’s Not Easy Being Honest

In Podcast, The Truth by Jennifer

Can I be real with you for a second? Releasing a book is SUPER emotional–especially when you’re as brutally honest as I am. You know I have zero shame when it comes to sharing the gritty details of what it looks like to be divorced…and why you should cherish your marriage. But it’s been a whirlwind since my new book …

In Lifestyle, The Truth by Jennifer

I can’t breathe. I can barely talk. I can hardly swallow…. But life must go on. Absolutely everything about being sick just sucks.

In My Humble Opinion…

In The Truth, Top 3 by Jennifer

(Because even when you have a happy divorce, it still turns absolutely everything upside down.) This book has not been easy to write and I KNOW it won’t be easy to hear. But it’s necessary and I felt compelled to do it.

Scared Shitless

In The Truth, Top 3 by Jennifer

So, I have this tumor. (How’s that for an opening line to a blog post?) I have a tumor. Wow. Well, you know me! I’ve never been one for beating around the bush or sugar-coating stuff… I’m more of a “hold the bullshit” type of gal. (Wink, wink.) “It is not a tumor!” She says in her best Arnold Schwarzenegger …

Happy Birthday To Me?

In Lifestyle, The Truth by Jennifer

So, last weekend I turned forty-six. Forty-fucking-six years old. (At forty-six I’m surprised I can even remember my age.) Honestly, last year after I turned forty-five everything went to shit. My eyes went blind, my bladder started leaking when I laughed, and my skin dried up like the Sahara Desert. For real! I couldn’t find a cream thick enough to …
