All of us have had those days when we feel a little off, bloated and just weighed down.  I know that when I have those days, it affects my mood, my energy and my overall sense of wellbeing. My guess is that you can relate. Here’s the good news: my close friend and one of […]

Do You Think Too Much?

It was 2 AM. The whole family was sound asleep while my third cup of green tea was slowly getting cold next to my laptop. I’d been squinting into my computer screen for hours like my life depended on it. It was a big-time project I’d been working on, and my deadline was just around […]

How To Tell If Perfectionism Is Getting In Your Way

Not too long ago… I threw in the towel. I know. Maybe not the best way to start a blog post – but it’s the truth. It was a concept in its infant stages. I realized how much I absolutely loved sharing my story and discussing perfectionism, and how the message of learning to let […]

Let’s Celebrate Being Good Enough

I am celebrating today!  Nope, it’s not my birthday or wedding anniversary or graduation or any of those usual milestones we typically recognize… I am celebrating that one year ago this week, I wrote the blog post where I admitted my struggles with perfectionism.  You may be thinking, who cares… but stay with me a […]

A Matcha Green Tea Smoothie with A Transformational Twist {Recipe}

Lately, I‘ve been thinking about the power of rituals.  A ritual is different than a routine.  Routines can become, well, a little too routine—where you simply go through the motions as if you’re on autopilot.

When Life Throws You Curve Balls

I can’t believe I’m writing this news. A couple of months ago, I shared my wonderful dog Willow’s story with you – how her cancer taught me incredible lessons on life, love, and letting go. She’s still with us, showing us her unconditional love…and I’m still learning. But this isn’t about my girl. It’s about […]

When Chocolate Chip Cookies Are More Nourishing Than Kale

My kitchen is the place to be in our house. At a typical meal, there are several burners lit, cutting boards spread out across the counters, and the sound of veggies being sliced and diced. My younger son, Daniel, finds his way to the bar stool to sit and assume his role as the official […]

You Can Change Your Mind

I love my time that I spend on my 6’ x 2’ yoga mat.  It’s a space I look forward to being in as often as my schedule permits. I go to the type of classes that are jam packed with wall-to-wall people. You’re only a few inches from your neighbor. It’s hot (around 100 […]
