I did it and I have proof! The video is at the bottom. But first… I was never the athletic one… E-V-E-R-!  I was picked last for teams, am notorious for tripping and stumbling (especially if I’m carrying a tray of food) and just in general I am the opposite of what one would call, […]

“Brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favorite things.” Oh how the lyrics of that song ring true. Who doesn’t enjoy receiving packages? Ummm – no one! I am a total sucker for great packaging, the price tag doesn’t seem as crazy when it’s wrapped in beautiful tissues, boxes and […]

What I think about as summer and how I’ve actually felt during summer in years past are very different!  When I think of summer I think of roasting marshmallows with friends and family, swimming, eating watermelon, making forts and tents, grilling out, long talks on the patio, eating popsicles and ice cream cones, kids with tan shoulders and sun kissed faces […]

I was thrilled (as in I did my happy dance!) when Mozi Magazine contacted me to see if I would write an article for them on attracting the right clients.  I am even more excited that it’s actually here in the June 2014 children and family edition, which is now available.  We all want a select group […]
