Animal Therapy.

When I was little, we didn’t have any pets. It wasn’t until I was almost 14 years old that we visited some friends who had the cutest little dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Monday (I LOVE this name for a dog), and I saw something in my dad that I hadn’t seen before.…

I am 4 Years Old.

On Sunday, Facebook reminded me that I had been using their platform for 4 years. And when I look back at where I was in my life when I made the trepidatious leap into the world of social media, I feel incredibly grateful for how it has helped me show up in a bigger way…

Do NOT Act Your Age!

Image Credit: James Altucher It is my birthday today and I am 45 years old. I love getting older. I mean, to be honest, I really don’t understand people who resist aging. I mean, I get it. In North America in particular, we tend to equate aging with degradation and decline. But it doesn’t have…

Soup For The Soul.

I love soup. I think I’ve always loved soup. Probably because my mother rarely put a meal on the table that didn’t include her signature “green soup” as a starter. She used up every veggie in the fridge that was starting to wilt and turned it into a delicious, creamy soup that we always gobbled…

BIG Love

I just finished reading Big Love by Scott Stabile. It was a joy to read, and I gobbled it up during a recent visit to the spa with Roger for his birthday. It was a truly decadent way to spend the day…soaking up the warm sun and enjoying the delicious words that Scott served up.…

Wait, WHAT? You Did NOT Just Call Me THAT.

I can not imagine being a mother in this day and age; where I have to teach my daughter self-respect and boundaries and what it means to stand in her power. Because in the year 2017, I am being called names like “stupid”, “slut”, “twat” and “cocktease” for a decision I made about my body.…

The Anatomy Of A Smoothie

This past weekend, Roger and I ran our online Writer’s retreat and we simply didn’t have time to stop and sit down to a meal. Yes, it is certainly best when we can take 20-30 minutes to sit, relax, eat slowly and truly be mindful of each bite of food, but we also live in…

Feed Your Cravings (Part 2)

It’s Tuesday, September 5th, and the first day of school for many young people. I wish all of the children and parents a great year ahead. I know, for a lot of parents, hearing those fateful words, “What’s for dinnnnerrrr???” can raise anxiety and stress levels bigtime. While I don’t have children, I can understand those…
