Girl from the South Side and former First Lady. Wife, mother, dog lover. Always hugger-in-chief.

This week I stopped by one of Portland's locally-owned bookstores, Broadway Books, and spent time with a group of young professional women who are juggling careers, relationships, and children, and trying to find a little time for themselves too. We talked about the importance of self-care and finding a group of women to support us through all our ups and downs as we try to manage our chaotic lives.

You don’t have to be here in Portland to take part in this conversation—let me know what you and your book clubs have been discussing!
