What HOME Means to Me

Home can mean different things to each of us depending on our circumstances, our childhood and where our heart feels at ease. For me home is felt in two places and appreciated equally. While I don’t own a beach cottage, yet, my heart and soul feels most at home when I am close to the… Continue reading What HOME Means to Me

Willpower-Self-Control-Self-Discipline

At least once daily I hear someone say that they don’t have willpower; it is usually referenced to their eating habits and lack of ability to lose weight. What is will power?

Gearing Up for Back to School and a Full Schedule

As your schedule gets busier it’s important to eat healthy while on the run. It’s not always necessary to pick up take-out or heat frozen processed foods in the oven to feed yourself and your family.

On Being Disconnected

I recently watched a short video-poem about turning off the devices and social media to truly live life in person. I thought, ‘yes, this man has a great point’! I think I’ll try it sometime but not today, I need my smart phone, I need to stay connected. Less than 24 hours my smartphone crashed due… Continue reading On Being Disconnected

Life Doesn’t Come with a Remote, You Have to Get Up and Change It!

I went on an overnight girl’s getaway to the King Arthur Flour Co. in Vermont a few weeks ago and we had a great time.
