Where the Heck Is PS Jackie?

Hi! As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t blogged much (see: at all) in a veeeery long time. I’ve been working here and there marketing for daytime talk shows, raising three busy, demanding kiddos and… wait for it… working to build my ultimate dream career… a radio/show podcast called Broadscast that you can now find on radio stations across the country as well as on iTunes and iHeartRadio. Yay!

broadscast kim goldman jackie macdougallPlease, please, please head on over and connect with us there. The show is all about women’s issues and interests and runs the gamut from pop culture and trending topics to parenting, relationships and lifestyle. The coolest part of the show is that we want YOU, the audience, to be front and center, sharing your thoughts, feelings, opinions, hopes, dreams… you get where I’m going with this.

I’ve had such a great time connecting with women, a few dudes, and lots and lots of parents through my blogging here, at Huffington Post and countless websites over the past several years. I hope to take those connections to the next level with Broadscast — on radio, via podcast, and SOON, via YouTube. If you’re interested in being a part of the show, whether it’s to make your voice heard as a member of our #broadsquad, or even become a regular contributor┬áto the show, please let us know by reaching out to Broads@broadscast.com.

I’m a writer/producer/on-air blabbermouth who occasionally will have a second to stop by and write here about a topic that interests — and matters — to me. In the meantime, let’s continue the convo over on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Plus, you can subscribe to get any and all new posts delivered straight to your inbox (psst: it’s over on the right). I look forward to connecting!

Coming Soon to a Kindergarten Near You…

For many readers, you’ve been there since the beginning when I started blogging about our adoption journey back in 2007. You were there when we received our referral, matched with a 7-month-old baby girl. You read about our sadness over missing Lucy’s first birthday when she was still in Taiwan and shared in our excitement when we gave her a do-over nine months later. You saw her hit the tireless twos and grow into a spunky, adorable preschooler.

So how could we not share Miss Lucy with you today, on her 5th birthday. The little baby I thought would never make it home into our arms is a smart, sassy, energetic and hilarious five year old who’s just a few weeks away from signing up for KINDERGARTEN! I have no idea how that happened when all I did was blink but, I do know, it’s never boring when Lucy is around!

In celebration of the big day, enjoy some pics of our Lucy Goose, shot recently by the very talented Renee Bowen Photography. Enjoy!
