hi! i’m deanna…


I’m a woman who:

Married my best friend and had three totally amazing kids, but went through a divorce to figure out what I really wanted

Loves to cook and watch you eat

Had a frustrating relationship with my parents but I loved them

Was there when my mother died, not there when my father’s life ended

Worked hard, really hard during my career

Was touched inappropriately on a job and stood up for myself

Was called a bitch on a job and I kept my mouth shut

Had lots of career success and some really epic failures

Working to stay curious, ask questions and learn new things

Starting to get aches and pains

Rediscovered my creative side

Is thankful for the small group of girlfriends who love unconditionally, and thankful to recognize the fringe “friends” who don’t

Is starting a new phase in my life, jumping off imaginary ledges and relying on my heart

Feels like I’m just like you - and it’s time we started talking…about everything

Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom.
— Amitabh Bachchan
