Thankfulness Campaign

To me, November has always marked a difficult moment in the seasons up here in New England. The cold of winter starts to really settle over us. It gets darker earlier – and many of us realize that we’re in our offices for much of the daylight hours. Getting outside now requires a jacket, and […]

Barbeques got the best of me

But I got the best of them, so in the end, we’re even. Except I’m up almost 10 pounds. This summer has been jam-packed with trips, parties, and snacks. The 80/20 rule is no longer in place. I’ve lost track of what portion control is. Maxi dresses are a bit too forgiving. My cycle of […]

Last Minute Bucket List

It’s hard to be on any social media these days and no see people commenting on how close we are to the end of summer – or sharing that meme about how it’s almost 2019. It’s also hard to believe that we are in mid-August! How did we get here? Where has the time gone? […]

Sore and Struggling

ClassPass has successfully made me exercise at three different times in the last week that in other circumstances, I would have bailed. The consequences of canceling a class within 12 hours is $15 and missing a class is $20. You can read more about their cancellation policy here. Since we’re currently renovating our first home, […]

Pass the ClassPass

At this stage in the game, if you haven’t heard of ClassPass, I’d be surprised. I’ve never used it, but I’ve been hearing about it for a few years. You can buy a monthly membership to ClassPass and it allows you access to different workout spaces and classes. I’ve never tried it, but I just […]

Recentering

The last few months have been hectic, busy, fun, and maybe also overwhelming. Being away almost every weekend for events, functions, and just for other people, has been a beautifully exhausting way to spend the first half of the summer. Packing, driving, chaos, driving, not un-packing. Then doing it all again! Between a busy social […]

Humble Home

For this week’s adventure I’ll be doing something I’ve never done before – something not everyone has the opportunity to do in their lifetime, something the average person only once or twice on their lives – close on a home. Our first home. My husband has been talking about owning a house since our first […]

Meaningful Meditation

In such a busy world, sometimes it’s hard to find a moment to yourself. Even when we do, we’re trained to have our phones with us – logged in to social media accounts, checking email, responding to group texts. Many of us, I think, have become afraid of true silence. It’s intimidating – and I […]

Power Positive

You may have read my earlier post about my personal positivity project. I set out to change my thinking by changing my words. No whining, complaining, or self-bashing for 24 hours. And you know what – it’s really freaking hard, and that’s not a complaint, it’s a statement. I tried setting reminders in my phone, and […]
