Awkward admission:  I didn’t know how to vacation.  But as most business owners can probably attest, it’s normal. When you start a business, it feels like you’re responsible for a baby.  You need to tend it, cuddle it, keep it healthy…and, of course, love it. There’s NO WAY you’d leave a baby alone for a […]

You grabbed my hand and asked if it felt like we’d been married 12 years. I wrapped my fingers around yours + responded, “No, but it feels like 11 years and 364 days.” That was yesterday. But today? Today it feels like 12 years. All these years later, there are some who wonder how someone […]

I’ve been getting a LOT of questions from people about the Instagram rumors of changing the grid from 3-squares to 4-SQUARES.

There are two types of people on Instagram. The ones with meh feeds filled with far too many dog selfies and blurry shots of the #OOTD (outfit of the day)… AND the ones that stop you dead in your tracks mid-scroll and make you feel like you just received a postcard from an old friend […]

Today’s Ask Me Anything starts with an experience yesterday that forced me to believe that we can figure out ANYTHING…if we want it bad enough. So often we battle the temptation to believe that we have a set of insurmountable obstacles to face that others don’t.  We look at the trials in our life and […]
