Have the dieting blues? Does eating healthy seem like a never ending tasteless concoction after another? I got you. The same thing happened to me when I first learned my daily ice cream habit might not be as good for me as I hoped it was. I switched completely over to “healthy” food and foundContinue reading
Being an introvert is like being a tortilla. We look simple and straight forward, but really we are deep and complex. Plus, we somehow end up holding everything together in this great big burrito world. Don’t worry, I really am going somewhere here.
When I was young there was this unspoken system. In place for hurts, sickness and sorrow. A system that never needed an explanation. Someone down the road went through something. Perhaps a death in the family, or horrible illness that confined them to stay in. Even for young moms recovering from the birth of theirContinue reading
Embracing chaos. Some might say it’s insanity. Others call it their daily routine. I’ve found it to be similar to riding my favorite roller coaster. ALL DAY.

I’m just sitting down in our little rental house in the calm while the boys play Lincoln Logs (something every parent should bring on vacation) and the 2 year-old is nappingContinue reading
Looking for the perfect holiday turkey recipe that will bring the family to their knees begging for just one more slice? Whether you’re as dramatic as I am in the kitchen, we all want one thing this Thanksgiving. To enjoy the day with family instead of stressing over the meal. Am I right?
At this point, summer might not end. We’ve hit the “endless days of summer” mode, but mostly because of the heat; not the quickly arriving school schedules. The next two weeks are projected to be 109° straight on through. I know, not quite the way I wanted to envision my summer either. Northern California hasContinue reading
