Well, here I am. Another year older. I made it to another year, and I am one year closer to the next decade. Shit is starting to feel VERY real. And, while this makes me feel a little melancholy, I can not allow myself to feel too sad and here is why….. I woke up […]
When your heart hurts.
This will be brief. I just need to put “pen to paper” so to speak. No matter how old your kid is, they are still your kid. No matter if you are frustrated with them, scratching your head with some of their decisions, or trying to give them a swift kick in the pants…..THEY ARE […]
Pardon the interruption…
to this regularly scheduled program…..*****READ WITH CAUTION, as my words are blunt***** I danced my whole life. As a kid, I spent many hours in a dance studio. As an adult I took salsa classes in studios and then later, I took and taught ZUMBA fitness in dance studios. So many of my memories of […]
Uh. Oh. Turns out what I wrote a few weeks ago about sharing kindness is harder than I thought. Turns out being nice isn’t the same as being kind. Turns out I am inherently nice, but not always kind. That bums me out. Really and truly bums me out. I certainly never thought I was […]

Is it really as simple as…

****Trigger Alert****Don’t read if you are already feeling sentimental. Several years ago I purchased a reclaimed piece of barn post at The Randolph Street Marketplace. I knew I wanted to use it in our entryway to hang coats. It is truly stunning. But, for a family of 6 it really wasn’t big enough for all […]
“Don’t Go Changing…”
Remember that classic Billy Joel song? It goes on to say…”I’ll take you just the way you are..” That’s all well and good. But Billy doesn’t address the elephant in the room. What if your old patterns are no longer serving you? What if the world around you goes changing? What if your circumstances change? […]
Here we are. The end of 2020. A year ago we were all sitting around thinking WOW…2020. THIS is going to be a magical year! And just a few months into it, our world was shattered. Filled with sadness, stress, heart ache. A year we will forever remember as one of the most challenging and […]
