You Have Permission to Take Care of Yourself

With kids home for the summer and the house feeling wonderfully noisy and chaotic, I was just thinking back on the days when the kids were little and even more noisy and the house was even more chaotic. There were days when I was so exhausted, my eyes wouldn’t focus properly. Yet even on the rare […]

The Power of Writing Down Your Dreams

Last week, I was talking to a dear friend about all the changes he really wanted to make in his life. “Write them down,” I told him. In my coaching sessions, when my clients describe their dream life, I say to them, “Write it down.” There is something so powerful about writing words on the […]

A Summer Snow Day

There’s nothing I love more than a snow day. When I was a classroom teacher, I’d listen to the radio announcements with my fingers crossed – willing the announcer to say the name of my school. Then when my own kids were in school, I’d say a little wish before opening the computer to check. […]

We’ve owned four old homes and our kids have never known one without crooked doors or slanted floors. Obviously, we love old houses. But the problem is, there’s always work to […]

Is Overwhelm a Choice?

Last Saturday morning the alarm rang at 4:30 am. A cold, dark sky met my view out the window. I rolled over and thought of all the reasons we should not be going to the scheduled weekend event. We’ve been traveling so much lately, the house is a mess, the kids are exhausted, I have […]

Seeking Holiday Perfection?

“If Everything was Perfect, You Would Never Learn and You Would Never Grow.” Beyonce Knowles The December issue of Country Living Magazine is sitting on my kitchen counter. On the cover, there’s a pretty white farmhouse. In front of the house sits an old mint-green truck with a freshly cut Christmas tree on top. Every […]
