Social Distancing – Week 2 Wrap Up

I, like most of you, wrapped up a second full week of social distancing on Friday and based on the press conference today, it sounds like we’re likely going to be buckling in for a few more weeks.  I’m grateful as I reflect on the last two weeks things have been overwhelmingly positive despite the circumstances that have us practicing distancing in the first place. I’m thankful to have been able to continue working and for a company that is set-up to so easily do …

Detox: mind, body and spirit

Detox: a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances; detoxification. Oh January, January, January … my month to pause, reset and free my mind. There was nothing specific that was unhealthy and it wasn’t that I was unhappy. I was just wound up so tight that I wasn’t able to think clearly anymore. I didn’t even realize it but there were little clues. I was too quick to judge, snappy and my mood …

Its upon your return to the writing that …

Playdates!

Oh playdates, playdates and more playdates.  Through the years playdates have taken on many different versions at my house from working full time, working from home as a consultant and now working full time with some flexibility.  The caliber and expectations from my first to my fourth kid have changed drastically. When Maddi was younger we had playdates at museums, full on tea parties and always had an agenda with a healthy snack and craft options.  I’m serious, an agenda with full blown themes. Fast …
