Have I mentioned that I’m falling in love? Every time we do a “Conversations Over Coffee” I’m falling. This week I’m so excited to introduce you to Bernie Brown. Long time readers of All Things Girl may recognize her name as we’ve regularly seen her wonderful works within our Writings Section and sometimes in the [...]
Crowded into the miniature Ocracoke Coffee shop, Amanda stood in line between auto repairmen and young mothers with strollers. While she waited, she listened to the espresso machine whoosh foam into her latte and thought about why she had decided to take this trip all by herself. She didn’t know. Why had she?
Jenny decided to bite the bullet and stay up late to sew, even though she’d rather be in bed reading The Help. Her husband was out of town, her kids were in bed, and she had to finish her daughter Meghan’s Snow White costume for the fourth grade play. She sewed all the way through four reruns of “The Golden Girls” and three of “MASH.” Now it was almost midnight.
Jill finished buttoning the back of my new dress for Fourth of July night while Perry Como sang “Catch a Falling Star” on the radio. I was twelve that summer, the summer before I started seventh grade, the summer I wore that dress. In our little town, the Fourth of July was the biggest deal of the whole summer. It was the Pole Star at which we directed all anticipation once we left school behind in May; and after we had celebrated it, we talked about it and relived it until school started again in September.
A constant stream of good looking people flowed past Serena as she sat in the café on the Cours Mirabeau. Their feet made pleasant clopping sounds, like thoroughbred horses.

The crowd roared, the band struck up the fight song, and the Farmville homecoming game ended in perfection. Dan Davis scored the winning touchdown in the final minute. Dan didn’t have the same success in other areas as he had in athletics. Football came naturally to Dan. Social acceptance did not. His talent at football [...]
The three girls raced around the family room, searching for hearts. “Here, Mommy, take a picture of me!” the youngest, Janie, laughed her throaty laugh. Every time they went to Heart’s Delight, she would grab the nearest magazine and zoom in on the heart in a dating site ad or a medical piece. Today she [...]
“Oh, crap! Not again!” For the third time this year, second chair French horn player Doug challenged first chair Anna. Now she had to sacrifice another lunch hour to a play off. She didn’t question Doug’s right to challenge her. She just had so little free time and now she had less. She had wanted [...]
Elaine Mallory loved her son Herb; but if truth be told, he wasn’t much fun. Herb bullied his wife Betty and Betty put up with it. Elaine held her tongue in their company, unable to decide whom to blame. The three of them sat together having drinks before dinner in the white marble piano bar [...]
