Started by Bernsom Add Your Opinion Lenny Letter has arrived: Have you subscribed to Lena Dunham & Jenni Konner's latest project? Active Participants Yes/Agree Bernsom I was blown away by the first issue. Facebook Comments Lenny Letter I actually love this initiative--real women, not just telling their stories, but discussing and sharing them with others. Galit Breen Recommended Conversations Which is your favorite Lena Dunham project? The VTeam Source: Counting almonds & being thin didn't help Lena Dunham's confidence or her sex life. Calm down, people: Lena Dunham is no Amanda Palmer and will pay co-performers in her book tour. #AskHerMore than what she's wearing: Did Lena Dunham mock the media's obsession with fashion at the Emmys?

Source: Lena Dunham: 'Even The Most Confident Woman' Doesn't Need To Stand Next To Supermodels. About. Once upon a time I was a TRAVELER.


I met amazing people and ate delicious food. All was well with my world. And then, I started my real life. I became a STUDENT earning a BS in Human Development and an MA in Education. I became a classroom and reading TEACHER. I’m smitten with my adopted state. The biggest earthquake shake to my soul, however, even more than learning the difference between a casserole and a hot dish, was becoming a MOM. But there was also the attachment, the touch, the bungee cords to my heart.

And after many, many (truly, many) one-foot-in-front-of-the-other days that threaded together until they inexplicably became years, I find myself the mother of three wonderful school-aged children and one ridiculously sweet and spoiled mini golden doodle. Today, my labels are woven together tightly: WIFE. I’m a MEMOIRIST, a LONG-FORM ESSAYIST, a RESEARCH-BASED TREND PIECE WRITER, a CONTENT CURATOR, a (co)DIRECTOR, and an AUTHOR.

I’m so glad that you’re here. Woman4woman. STEPHANIE GOLDSON-RAPPAPORT is the owner of Steph Graphic Design, which specializes in printed materials for school branding and promotions.
