I don’t “do” New Year Resolutions. I have almost always failed at them, and frankly, I don’t need to add to my list of shortcomings. My one “resolution”, if you want to call it that, I mentioned in my comment on Katie’s New Year post: Do Better. I’ve been in a slump, professionally and personally, … Continue reading
As we enter the dog days of summer, it’s important to stay hydrated, especially with the recent spate of record-breaking high temperatures.

It was the height of the barren womb years, when I easily got pregnant and then just as easily miscarried every one. I was a crying, hormonal mess. I couldn’t focus on … Continue reading
I’ve mentioned that I read Jen Hatmaker’s new book “7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess” after reading some of her blog posts and identifying with her shock and frustration about how materialistic and self-indulgent we are in our everyday lives. Reading this book in the new year was a great way to get motivated to do some … Continue reading
February is American Heart Month. Although Valentine’s Day marks the halfway point of February, there’s still plenty of time to focus on our heart health, as we should be doing all year long anyway.
