It’s been over three weeks since Prince has been gone and my world is still rocked. I think everyone is still in shock and in perfect journalistic fashion the media has gone full steam ahead trying to destroy all that we believed to be true. Could he really have been such a master of deception?Continue reading

Have you ever had your life flash before your eyes, or rather your child’s life, flash before your eyes? Well, it happened to me over Spring Break and it really knocked the wind out of me. I was sitting on a beach in Anguilla when I saw this beautiful little family of three. The littleContinue reading

Is it just me or is Valentine’s Day just a real pain in the ass? I feel so un-romantic saying it out loud, but it’s just another day, and this happens to be coming from someone who has a Valentine. The whole idea of feeling like there is one day of the year that weContinue reading

And my patience for telemarketers, well that’s been gone for years! You know what, let’s just say my patience for overall stupidity has been shot to hell andContinue reading

New Years Day my daughter asked me a very poignant question, “Mom, what’s your New Years resolution?” My response was delayed, I really had to think about that. I know that we have all thought about this question, at some point, in a superficial way. We either wanted to be skinnier, richer, faster or smarter.Continue reading

Today was going to be a grind and I knew it. I could feel it from the moment my feet hit the floor in the morning. It was going to be one of those days. I had two choices – I could either choose to motivate or medicate, it was all up to me. TheseContinue reading

Last week I did something that I’ve always wanted to do – swap lives with my husband. Not forever, but just for a moment in time. Not quite Freaky Friday, but for a day and in my own body. I have been afforded the luxury, although rarely does it feel luxurious, to stay home withContinue reading
