Epiphany Alone has a wry sense of humour that serves her well as she writes about any subject on her mind, from life with her two young daughters to the slippery slide one steps into when one purchases and displays a Christmas decoration before Thanksgiving to more serious issues like eating disorders and how you teach strangers not to force unwanted (but in itself benign) attention on young children.

Andrea has an interesting and distinctive style. Each of her entries contains an image, usually a photograph she has taken; at times, photographs are interspersed throughout her text.
