One word to make 2017 worth it

So I just have to ask…how’s that New Year’s resolution going? Maybe you intentionally did not make one because you know from years past how that story ends. You might have read how I wasn’t big on New Year’s resolutions and evidence proves the rest of you aren’t either. A small piece of the pie […]

30 days filled to the brim with thanks

I set out with a simple goal. Write down one thing every day for which I am thankful. It wasn’t hard to think of that one thing. Sometimes several thoughts bubbled up and the hard part was picking just one. It was surprisingly challenging to remember to take the quick moment to write it down. […]

33rd birthday gift to myself :: A happily ever right now

There’s an unmistakable veil of electric excitement wrapped around my daughter’s almost four year-old self. She bunny hops through the house chattering about her Little Mermaid birthday pool party that despite all of her inquiries is not quite happening tomorrow.

10 minutes a day to untangle

I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions.

5 ways to never quit your daydream

Just don’t quit your daydream. The whimsically scripted quote caught my distracted eye while window-shopping. I immediately found the shimmery wall art to be the perfect inspiration piece to add to my home office, but alas, was not going to succumb to the inevitable resort pricing. Instead I decided to write about why these words […]

It’s ok to change course

  “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.” – Muhammad Ali   This morning was a tough one. My arms were filled to the brim. Two backpacks, two lunch boxes, two nap mats (one with a broken strap), one rather awkward plastic-wrapped bale of size 3 diapers, and one […]

How Ironman trained me for momhood

The word “triathlete” is near the top of the list that defines my second decade on this Earth. Good or bad – it became who I was to myself. I was unreachable between the hours of 5 and 7 am on weekdays and 7 to 11 am (or later) on the weekends remaining dedicated to my […]
