As lawyers working in a city where educational pedigree and professional achievement serve as ones calling card, my husband and I meet lots of really smart people with tons of book sense and absolutely no common sense. No matter how hard we try--no matter how BIG or OBVIOUS the hints--some people just catch on to the fact that our family consists of a white man and a black woman married to each other.
I love all things local, including bloggers, and last month I had the pleasure of hosting Blogging While Brown's first (of many) Boston Meetup. One of the many new friends I made is this week's guest blogger: Laura K. Warrell, writer, teacher and author of the blog Tart & Soul: A Search for Connection and Meaning. Before she takes over the world, I want to make sure you remember where you read her first. Enjoy!
