The end of the line, the beginning of everything.

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

So, here we are. The end of the line. The beginning of everything. This has been a great year. It’s not the year I thought I would get on the tin, but it’s taught me a lot of lessons and kept me on my toes. I’m sure next year will be as… eventful. (I’m giving you the side-eye, next year. You’d better behave.) We’re supposed to finish off our tenure…


Kimmery Says Goodbye

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

  Yeah, baby! Post #52! I did it!!!! Whew. At the beginning of this adventure, I doubted my ability to churn out an article a week. But despite the effort required to make this blogging thing work, writing for The Debutante Ball has been infinitely worthwhile. I looked back over my year’s worth of posts this week, and while some of them did veer toward the crappy end of the…


Jenni L. Walsh Says Goodbye (For Now)

Thursday, August 31, 2017

This week the 2017 Debs say goodbye and welcome in the 2018 class! The other gals have also said it, but I want to parrot how it’s hard to believe this is my last post as part of the Deb Ball Class of 2017. It’s been a wonderful year and I’m not sure it’s possible to list all the ways in which I’m grateful for this experience. But, I simply…


All Good Things…

Monday, August 28, 2017

…must come to an end. This week the 2017 Debs say goodbye and welcome in the 2018 class! It’s crazy to think an entire year has gone by. FEAST OF SORROW landed in bookstores on April 25th, jumpstarting what I hope will be a real future career for me. It took me nearly a decade to get this book in the world, when all was said and done, but hopefully, book…


The Fat Lady’s Singing: The End of My Deb Year

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

“Tomorrow’s gone—we’ll have tonight!” ―Dorothy Parker This is it. I have no more tomorrows. This is my final Deb Ball post. Feels strange as I’m starting so many other things: my older child became a teenager last week, and in just three weeks, he will become a bar mitzvah. My younger is starting her first year in middle school. My whirlwind book tour ramps up in October. The Jewish new…


The Last Goodbye, the Last Blog Post, and All Good Things

Friday, August 29, 2014

I’m honored to be writing the final blog post on behalf of the Debutante Ball Class of 2014. How can a year have raced by so fast? Seems like just a few months ago the five of us were going nutty preparing the Debutante Ball’s relaunch with this fantastic new website. Can it be? Are we really the old hands now, the published authors ready to hand down the tiaras to…


Goodbye, from Deb Kerry and Random Penuin

Monday, August 26, 2013

The End. Goodbye. It’s been fun, moving on, we’ll see you around. Let’s do lunch sometime, shall we? This break up was inevitable, though – we always knew we only had a year. And what an eventful year it has been. The highlights? I was diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent a double mastectomy with reconstruction, and am now walking around with synthetic boobs. This would have been enough excitement for…
