6 August 2015

How in the world is one supposed to start designing a formula for their entire life?

Climbing Up to the Next New Normal

24 July 2015

I've been feeling somewhat anxious lately; a complete lack of clarity and an unbelievable lack of organization and execution. This is not me in my stride.

Being a mom for 10 entire years came rather quickly I thought, but looking back, wow, how I've changed and grown in those 10 years!

Meet the Team!

19 June 2015

The tall kid with the Green Bay hat – he’s my strategizer and negotiator. He keeps me on my toes and always presents me with many learning opportunities. The short one is my fashion expert – never hesitating to point out that while the tights I’m wearing are nice, my sweater and hair-do make me look old.

I’m so glad to finally be sitting down and writing to you because I have so much I want to share this month! I’m working new elements into my own life formula and I would like to tell you about them and the resources I’ve found that have me thinking about where my formula can be improved.

Still Into You

18 June 2015

Lately I’ve noticed a lot of examples of my husband and I working together harmoniously and I still find myself a bit stunned at the solid team we have become. He’s is my “go-to guy” but just when exactly that happened for me – I can’t tell you.
