Here’s to Endings and New Beginnings

                        I am the proud Mama of a high school graduate! For all of you who have followed my book, Preemie: Lessons in Love, Life, and Motherhood and know the story of our girl’s birth, you know that moments like these hold an extra […]

Mother’s Day Magic

I hope this finds you well and enjoying the glorious month or May (or the new June, as many of the moms I know have dubbed it – it’s so full and busy!). With this time of year so heavily focused on getting the kids to the end of the school year, we need to […]

Hydration/Nutrition But lately, I’ve come to realize that there is a 4th necessary element that may be missing in many of our lives. 4. Creativity. I made this […]

The Gift of Connection

                My 2019 word of the year is Connection. Which reminds me of a story about the incredible power of connection. A few weeks after my first book, Preemie: Lessons in Love, Life, and Motherhood was released, I was traveling to speak at an event in front of […]

This past weekend my self-care practice was blasting soul-nourishing songs […]

Holiday Perfection

  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 window on the house has a wreath with red bows and garland hangs from […]

Ask Yourself: What Do You Need

When our daughter was little, there were times when she was so out of sorts, I felt helpless in helping her. One day, I opened up to a friend and shared this with her. In return, she offered the suggestion of asking our girl the simple question – What do you need? That question became […]
