I just couldn't keep myself away. Did you really think I would?

The world has changed – not only in a quarantine / COVID sense, but also in an entirely-new-job-and-life sense.

Which means my stance on the blog has also changed.

Here's the cliff's notes version of my story...

Wow, I certainly have been distracted lately. Though, I'm not sure "distracted" is the right word. More like, preoccupied. Consumed. Revitalized.

Let me explain.

I've had this dream since I left Seattle: focus on what makes me happy. People have been doing that very thin...

​It's not always easy to keep the kids engaged and wanting to read. I'm discovering that more and more as my second daughter gets older. Alexa LOVES reading, Parker LOATHES it. Therein lies the challenge.

If there's one thing I'm not afraid of, it's a challenge.

It's Thanksgiving, so as I sit here in my new house, I'm overwhelmed with gratitude that we have our very own space.

Let’s assume you’re one of...

We all know establishing early reading habits is essential to setting kids up for success in pre-k and beyond, but encouraging healthy habits can oftentimes feel daunting. Especially at the end of a long work day...

We all know them, we all loathe them. The "toxic" coworker.

It's that person in the office who flips out if you ask him to do his job. Or that girl who can't stop gossiping about her boss.

It's Henry, from accounting, whose responses are always laced with a layer of sar...

I’m not a huge fan of New Year’s resolutions. Start trying to lose weight immediately after two months of solid holiday face-stuffing? Why, though? New Year's resolutions only set you up for failure... but that doesn’t mean I don’t like resolutions at all.

While I proce...

It has been one hell of a week.

Do you ever feel like you’re doing great? Like free-flowing, mothering-comes-so-easily, can-do-it-all kind of great? I think I’ve achieved this status a few times, but I can’t remember what it feels like. Because this week... I’m hitting...

Style icons. They come in many forms, from A-list celebrities and fashion models to librarians, and everywhere in between. They exude style and personality, their wardrobes flowing straight from an effervescent fountain of chic. We gravitate toward those whose style vi...
