Maria The Family Mix: Essays on Family Life From Midlife Mixtape

I look forward to Nancy's Midlife Mixtape blog entries about twice a week. They are a welcome break to my day and a reminder of the fact that everyday life is worth writing about and worth pondering. the Family Mix is also hilarious, and Nancy's unromantic approach ultimately yields meaningful, heartfelt stories about her kids, family and friends.Thank you, Nancy, for not being overly precious, not too much of a hipster, and very, very funny.
