She Said Yes: One Amazing Wedding Proposal

So this guy came to my brother.  He said, “Hey, man. I really love this girl. I want to ask her to marry me.” And Rob thought for a moment that the dude was asking my brother to be in the wedding, which would be weird since they weren’t *that* close. Then the guy said, “She’s very […]

Interruptions, Highlights, and a GREAT New Podcast

Sometimes the internet keeps me in touch with you. And sometimes it's a big interruption in our conversation. I understand we got interrupted. My email subscription has been down for a bit. A few months, actually. You may not have noticed, or you may have thought I stopped writing. But no, here I was, prattling […]

Well, I'm in love with a hammock.

You guys, I got a hammock for my birthday. I'm probably never getting out of it. I slept in it last night, except from 1:00 - 5:30 am, when I got cold.  But then I went right back out there to snuggle in, and I slept until 11:00.  That's half a day.  When have I last […]

Want to Listen Instead? The Audible Version of You Can Do This!

You guys, I'm so excited to present this to you, especially those of you who have long drives in the car or on the commuter train, those of you who like stories but hate reading, and those of you who have ever asked me to read aloud to you. Which, to my great delight, has […]

When Your Heart is on the Line

Sophie Hudson is my spirit animal. She writes the words in her books and her blog (BooMama), and I nod and sometimes say out loud, “Yes. Yes, thank you. Yes.” It’s the same way my brother pounds the table when he eats the Chicken Bryan dish from Carrabba's. Sometimes you can only groan and pound the table […]

Better Than You Think

I leaned out the Starbucks drive-thru window to hand a drink to the customer in her car, and that’s when I heard her say, “Oh, my gosh! It’s you!” It’s always fun when the virtual world meets the real and tangible world right in front of me, and here I had a collision of two […]

"That Kid": Why I'm A Stage Mom

“This theater company doesn’t dig wells for villages without water. We don’t build schools for communities in third world countries, and we don’t build houses for victims of national disaster. That’s not what we do. We exist for That Kid. The girl who will never raise her hand to answer a question in school, but […]

Memory, Emotion, and Attraction: How I Make the Power of Scent Work For Me

I want to let you in on one of my favorite tricks. But be careful, ‘cause it’s a powerful tool. Whenever I travel to a new place, I preface the trip with a visit to Bath & Body Works to choose a new lotion. I smell all the ones that look remotely inviting, and once […]

Look Who's Wearing The Green Apron

Look at this greatness right here. My name is Tricia, and I am a Starbucks barista. It was really kind of the next logical step.  I'm there all the time anyway, so let's just make this official, right? The boys are thrilled that I'll learn how to make frappuccinos, and they're impressed that I'm finally […]

My Debut Into Talk Radio

”Can you be there on Monday at 11:00?” he asked. His name is Moose, perhaps in part because all radio producers have a schtick, though perhaps his nickname came about long before he started on radio.  He seems like a Moose. He produces Angie Austin’s radio show, The Good News with Angie Austin, and they […]

My Favorite Picture Book About Grief and Loss

So there's these couple of donkeys, Squire and Daniel.  I love these little guys. Squire and Daniel are the best of buddies, and they enjoy their sweet little donkey life together until one day when Daniel gets taken away. We don't know where he goes, or who takes him, or why he must leave, but […]

Raise Your Hand if You Lost a Wheelchair Today

I can really only think of one way in which it would be feasible to lose a wheelchair. Perhaps if I were a brand new candy striper volunteering at a hospital, and perhaps if I were tasked with moving all of the wheelchairs on site to, oh say, a giant wheelchair closet or parking lot, […]

Children's Hospital Is Like EPCOT

Tucker and I spent yesterday at Children’s Hospital, which is in itself a really beautiful place.  I spent the day feeling like we were on some part of Disney property with all the colors and foods and things to see.  I’m not even kidding.  We wandered around for the hours between our appointments, and I […]

Quantifiable Sleeplessness

Have you heard of the app called Sleep Cycle? It's pretty brilliant and fascinating.  You put your phone in your bed with you, and it monitors your movements and breathing patterns during the night, concluding how deeply you sleep.  In the morning, you have a graph of the hours of the night, how deeply you […]

The Thing About Timehop

Timehop is this time capsule app that lets you see exactly what pictures and updates you posted on this exact date in history, and I happen to think it's pretty much the best app to ever hit Facebook. Sometimes I'm dramatic, but I do think I might be right about this. See, the best and […]

My Moment with Anne Lamott

Sometimes an opportunity pops up between the cracks of the sidewalk, and  you just know that you know that you know it will be a moment of all moments. Anne Lamott came to my town, to my bookstore (which I fervently all my own since I guess I believe a girl should put her name on the […]

Happenings over Teriyaki and White Rice

"Do you have a punch card with us?" "I should get one, shouldn't I?" "You definitely should." And the next thing I knew, he was making confetti from holes in a business card as if he were the train engineer on The Polar Express. "Here's one for Monday, and one for Tuesday, and here's one […]

A Delicious Paragraph about My Kissable Life

I am putting the final loving touches on the next book, Let's Pretend We're Normal. (If perhaps you are thinking, "Trish, didn't you already do that?" then to you I say, "Yes, and this is the ongoing joy of the writing life until the publisher waves the checkered flag.  It's never finished, merely abandoned.") I […]

Let Me Tell You Something About Sara Groves

She stood so close to me with her hand on my arm. Her voice is so gentle and her words so intentional in her songs and now in her conversation. Sara Groves and I had shared a stage at a women's event: she sang and led worship, and I told my stories and shared what I'm […]
