This is 38.

You know, there was a time when 38 sounded really old to me. Being in your 30’s meant babies, mortgages, having a real job, and being like – a real grown up. The idea freaked me out. I had so much fear. Of everything. I have no idea what I was so scared of....

The real deal on colonoscopies.

Today I am going somewhere I have never gone before. I am talking about colonoscopies. Yup, brace yourself. March is National Colorectal Cancer month.

The Season of Lent

Today was the official start of the Lenten season. Even if Lent doesn’t mean anything to you for religious reasons, it is a good time to make some changes or do some nice things. Set an intention and for 40 days, either adding something or taking something away from your life or someone else’s....

A little desktop inspiration.

I love having inspiring wallpapers on my computer screens. Every time I turn my laptop or desktop on, I am inspired by whatever message happens to be there.

10 Years.

My oldest child turned 10. My husband and I have been parents for a decade. If these 10 years felt like mere seconds, before I know it another ten years will have gone by and he will be an adult, a man. It is so true what they say, the days are long, but...

Resolve to Love Yourself in 2014

I am sitting on my couch soaking up the last few hours of 2013. For reals, I am so happy to say goodbye to this year. It was one of the hardest ones for my personal life, and one that really made me question who I am as a person and what my values...

How To Enjoy The Holidays Instead of Just Survive The Holidays

Christmas is a crazy time of year. No matter how you slice it, it is way busier than any other time of year. It can be hard to keep up with everything – presents, programs, kid parties, cookie-baking, wrapping, obligations. It is just a lot. I find myself saying, “I just need to survive...

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams

Dreams are a powerful thing. Even as children, we dream of things that are bigger or better than what we have or where we are at that moment. Some of us dream of being a ballerina or have a goal of seeing our names on the cover of a book by the time we...
