I laid in my 2-year-old’s bed, singing to him with tears running down my cheeks. That’s because tonight he walked into his room, laid down and let me tuck him in without screaming.

The Apple Leaf | Commentary: The absolute truth of feminism

Feminism. Just the word brings about an air of tension to the room it’s uttered in. From dank memes about it on Instagram, to it being the reason your mom hates Donald Trump, feminism is a prevalent topic in our society. However, what you think you may know about feminism is most likely based upon layers and layers of stereotypes orchestrated by eccentric figures and stories featured on social media. I’m writing here today, to help unravel the enigma of feminism. 

Dear Abby | Wife who escaped abusive marriage must not go back

Dear Abby: In the beginning of our marriage there was physical abuse and marital rape. I stayed anyway. Over the years we had two children. My husband, “Seth,” and I don’t communicate because he has refused to talk about any issues we have. During the last few years, my youngest son has also become physically abusive to me.

Dear Abby | Girl shies away from gym

Dear Abby: My mom wants me to exercise more. Currently, I just walk a lot (in my house and around the block). I know exercise is a good idea, but I’m really self-conscious about it. I never feel like I’m doing it right (because I know you can easily pull a muscle), and I feel like everyone else in the gym is judging me.

In the Garden | Start the season right

Have you ever wanted a guided tour through the growing season? So many gardeners question, “When do I do this? Is it time for that already?” 

Raise your spirits this winter with toasty cocktails

Nothing may be more pleasurable at day’s end than a well-crafted cocktail. The clink of ice on glass, the magical mix of sweet, sour and alcoholic — it’s a great way to unwind and be merry, especially during the holiday season.
