Your Family’s Shelter In Place Schedule

Lessons Learned From a Close Call

It was just three weeks ago when Mark and I got up and prepared to head to the airport for our speaking trip near Washington DC. As he does every day, Mark headed downstairs and made his coffee. He spent some quiet time and headed into the kitchen for a second cup of...

The #1 Reason You Don’t Reach Your Goals

I’ll just put this here and put it away later. I’ll just sleep in this morning and go to the gym tomorrow morning. I’ll just have one handful of M&M’s. I’ll just fold the laundry tomorrow.  Rationalizing. We all do it. It’s a coping mechanism when we’re...

Fantastic Food: Leeks

Several years ago when we were hosting a young man from Poland, he wanted to make a traditional Polish meal for our family. I took him to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients he needed and he asked me where the leek’s were. I had no idea. I’d never...

Fantastic Food: Bell Peppers

My husband loves to eat bell peppers raw. He just slices them up and enjoys! I’ve not always been a fan of bell peppers, and I don’t particularly care for them raw, but I’ve learned to love them in stir fry or sauteed  vegetables. Last night I made...

Fantastic Food: Kohlrabi

Since my breast cancer journey, our family has slowly been changing our eating habits. Cancer has a way of making you think about what you put in your body more intentionally. When I finished my treatment a year ago, my oncologist told me, “You now need to take...

Peanut Butter Playdough

Now that we have a two-year-old in the house, we’re always looking for fun activities to keep her busy. This edible playdough is a recipe I made for my kids many years ago. It’s easy to make and easy to cleanup! When you tell the kids they can eat it,...
