Happy New Year! I hope you are well and had a lovely holiday. It was a different holiday season for us this year. I noticed feeling anxious and lacking as Christmas got closer. We had fewer presents and not very many activities planned. I kept feeling the urge to go get one more present to make...

Real yoga

Real yoga

On Saturday we had a Yin yoga and acupuncture workshop. If you’ve never done yin yoga it focuses on the opposite of what most of our busy lives are about. Yin is the opposite of yang. Slow, still, calm and quiet. It’s about connecting to your breath, yourself and getting grounded to the...

a different take on Thanksgiving dinner

a different take on Thanksgiving dinner

For years I planned, organized, cooked, and hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all of the trimmings, and decorations just like you see in the movies or on T.V. At least that was my goal. In order to orchestrate this event, I would take two days off before Thanksgiving and spend all of...

sharing the ritual of a good meal together

Growing up, we knew that dinner was always served at 6pm. This was a non-negotiable family time event.

The Family That Plays Together, Stays Together

The Family That Plays Together, Stays Together

Family vacation!  If you’re anything like me, perhaps you’re picturing the Griswolds; squished into a tiny European car, zooming around a roundabout in London or crammed into a wood-paneled station wagon singing road songs on their way to Wally World.  We love these Hollywood scenes because...

Taking family fitness a little too far

Taking family fitness a little too far

So as I thought of healthy family fun month I wanted to share a story about my well...maybe taking family's health a little too far. Sometimes keeping your family healthy and well pushes you to places that surprise you. And a teenage son will push you even beyond those places. Don't worry this...

It’s not about me anymore…or is it?

It’s not about me anymore…or is it?

“It’s not about me anymore”… those words continue to play through my head each day as I look down at my growing belly filled with a little life. I am 5 months pregnant and life as I know it will be changing very soon. However, when people tell me “It’s not about you anymore”, I...
