Plenty of Midtown Fish in the Sea

By Becky Larson, How often do you meet a Midtowner whose mother’s cousin’s wife works with you?  Or whose father’s best friend dated your mom back in high school? Forget six degrees of separation.  In Midtown, it’s more like two degrees at best. This is part of the reason we love it here and […]

Lessons in Love and the Pursuit of Happiness at any Age

By Becky Larson, It’s been said with age comes wisdom. I think in most aspects of life this saying can be found truthful. I feel wiser in my professional life now than I did when I first stepped into the workforce after college. I feel wiser about my financial choices and even most of […]

Scared of Lonely

By Carlyn Spangler, Alone…a word many of us are scared of. The word “alone” can conjure up many feelings or images, such as peaceful, quiet, dark or cold. No one wants to go through life in solitude. We long for that partner to hold our hand through the darkness and lead us into the […]

The Age Old Question or the Old Age Question?

By Becky Larson, Each year I get closer to the big 3-0 I become more aware I’m entering a time in my life where age can become an issue. I’ve noticed I now sometimes cringe when people ask how old I am.  We frequently hear “age is just a number” but is that really […]

Holding Out For a Hero …

By Carlyn Spangler, Knight, cowboy, quarterback, hero … someone who will defeat evil, score the winning touchdown or ride off into the sunset with you. These things have been culturally ingrained into our minds since Cinderella met Prince Charming at the ball. We search and search for the hero, someone to save us from […]

Goodbye Little Black Book, Hello Digital Roster!

The physical address book deemed the “little black book” may still exist at the bottom of a drawer in your closet somewhere. But as our lives have moved from sharing contacts and information via the written form, to typing the information digitally, the little black book continues to collect dust.

Dating Nonsense: Tales Of Dating In Midtown

By Christina Birdsall, Contributor My conversations with Jay pretty much begin the same way: “Hiiiii.” To which he responds, “Yooooo.” This leads into the regular chatter. “How is your girlfriend?” I ask, fully knowing his response, which varies anywhere from “amazing” to “spectacular.” If g-chats allowed a musical number in place of that happy face […]
