Another week is almost behind us. It’s be a whirlwind type of week for me and I am quite ecstatic to move on. Wednesday we placed my grandmother in hospice. While we’ve known for sometime that this day would come, it never gets easy. Time with family and allowing emotions to run freely has been […]

Merry Christmas!!! At this particular moment in time, there is a good chance I am singing Christmas carols with my family while sipping a mimosa…  and enjoying each moment I am given with them while wishing those that couldn’t be here with us are having a day filled with love, joy, and togetherness.

My niece is 2.5 going on 15 but one thing that blows my mind is the joy she finds in the smallest of things. Come Christmas morning she is going to be completely overwhelmed and excited by all the toys delivered from Santa, so we decided to give her our presents this past weekend. Yes, […]

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! While it’s important to be thankful year round, let’s face it… life get’s busy, things get taken for granted and we’re human.

Hello friend. Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or a glass of water and sit with me a moment. Being a personal trainer, and having a small frame, I have a lot of clients make remarks along the lines of: “You’re tiny, you’ve never had to worry about weight.” Or… “I’ll never be your size, […]

$150 is a good amount of money to win. Especially, around the holidays! So when Dan suggested such a waging bet, I thought for about 0.25 seconds before shaking his hand. Poor guy, he’s going to lose $150… What’s the bet? The 6-Pack Turkey Day Challenge   Can I get a 6-pack by Thanksgiving? He […]

Doesn’t that headline just irk you? I certainly does me. I was born in a lucky generation… where girls and boys were treated some what equal. My mom used to tell me all the time, you can do whatever your brother does. Just as well. Oh yea? Then why can my smoking, 33 year old […]
