Setting Boundaries by Saying No

6 February 2017

Women today take on A LOT. If you happen to also be a mom, you’re probably doing the work of several people. It’s no wonder that many of us feel stressed out and overwhelmed when really, our lives are filled with so much positivity, love, and laughter. We seem to become consumed with the challenges, the tasks and the daily grind. I know I’m guilty of this.

Getting Back to A Formula That Worked

3 February 2017

I looked back on my blog post for Your Formula for Life from January 2016, and noted that some of the elements of my formula that I mentioned in that post were to “Just say no” and “Take time for myself”. I can honestly say that formula worked for me then, but I will admit I’ve since allowed elements of my life to get in the way and I fell off that wagon months ago!

A New Year, A Fresh Start?

25 January 2017

While I have been MIA I have been conducting an important experiment. Pay attention now – this is truly ground breaking stuff….

18 January 2017

Protecting Your Relationship

13 January 2017

Todd and I are a typical, we disagree on some things, agree on most things, and work together to manage our home, finances and children’s extracurricular schedule. But that does not make us a couple. That makes us roommates. Responsible roommates.

My Game Plan for 2017

10 January 2017

New Years. No better time to reflect on the year. Look at what's gone well. What hasn't worked so well. And move forward. I'm not going to lie. 2016 was not a year that was kind to my family, my extended family or my friends. I'm hopeful that the year that lies ahead is full of promise and happiness. For everyone. On that note, there are some habits that I want to include in my formula this year. And some that I want to get rid of.

My Direction in 2017

9 January 2017

But in order to make resolutions that I feel are effective, I need to reign myself in from the far sweeping; life altering; I should be doing this, this and this; 2017 is the year I WILL do it all; kind of promises.

Learning To Let Go

3 January 2017

Just before Thanksgiving I went into preterm labor at 32 weeks pregnant with our third child. After a weekend in the hospital, my contractions were under control enough for me to be sent home on modified bedrest. I felt confident that I could relocate headquarters to my bedroom and run household and business ops right from my laptop in bed.
