Underestimating Recovery

Underestimating Recovery

In the age of the Internet, there’s probably very little that happens in our lives that doesn’t get Googled, documented in social media, and who hasn’t planned an entire meal or party off of Pinterest? So when got home from the ER after I broke my foot, one of the first things I did was … Continue reading

Wouldn’t it be Nice?

Wouldn’t it be Nice?

As I watched the marathon trials on Saturday, in addition to being in awe at the way those athletes move, there was longing. Wishing for their strong strides. Their high knees.

Love who you are TODAY #WhatILikeAboutMe

Now that Valentine’s Day is over, whether you’re single or coupled up, it’s time we admit it is a bogus holiday. It’s not about showing the people you love how much you love them anymore. A friend noted that at her child’s pre-school, Valentine’s cards now come with substantial gifts (not just a pencil or … Continue reading
