Let Go of Fear

Many moons ago, I would go to the gym every Saturday morning for a self-directed spinning session…and while in class, I loved grinding and digging it out to hard core rock music and pounding trance, I found that on my own, I preferred to get lost in a good audiobook or podcast. And my absolute […]

Five for Friday

It’s hard to believe I’m writing this, only a year and a half after my LAST gushing tribute to Lucas and his career change. If you’re catching up, check out: Four Words I’ve Never Heard When Two Become One…Income But as of this morning, Lucas has left a job that he loved and worked hard […]

11 Things About Me

I don’t do a lot of these blogger memes or Q&As, but when Ashley tagged me in this one, I thought it was a great way to share some things about myself that might surprise you. However, I am breaking the rules. I’m not tagging anyone else and I’m only answering her questions to me […]

Five for Friday

I’m freaking out a little that the year is already 1/12th over. I mean, January — you couldn’t have gone a little more slowly? All in all, it was a great month! I helped launch a project I’m extremely proud of at work — a new book and supporting website called Rock Stars of Aging: […]

I Came to Dance, Dance, Dance, Dance

Those who know me, know my love for the dance. Cases in point: Dance Like Everyone’s Watching 5 Ways Pole Dancing is Like Social Media I’m not the most talented dancer — my favorite move is the shimmy shake, in which I move my shoulders up and down and side to side while bobbing my […]

Who’s Your Doorman?

I’m a pretty superstitious person. I put my left shoe on first every day, try not to step on cracks, touch the ceiling of my car when I go through a yellow light or see a car with only one working headlight (“padiddle!”) and am a big believer in routine. And so, I have two […]
