Tossed!                                                            Keep, organized.

I, like hordes of other 30+ yr old women,...

Today I found myself with a clear schedule and a sunny morning stretching out in front of me. I felt compelled to walk up to the local hardware store (staying strong with my commitment to an Amazon-free April!) and purchase some things to spruce up the courtyard in fro...

Today, I reach the three year mark in my continuous sobriety. I emphasize “continuous” because I had a full year sober before those three years, but I drank a few times (three) in the weeks between breaking my sobriety and beginning it again. Sometimes, it’s tempting f...

I accidentally left my Fitbit at home one day last week for the first time in probably 4.5 years! I'll admit, I had some moments of panic when I pulled up to the gym and realized that I would be moving without my trusty tech counting all my steps for me! If my Fitbit i...

You may have noticed I’m not afraid to say FUCK. For most people, that’s the dreaded “F” word. But you know what two other F-words that people avoid even more.

In my morning yoga class the other day, I looked around to see if I was doing a pose “correctly.” As I work on my yoga practice, I often struggle with making sure I’m doing things “right” — if my pose matches the one of the person on the next mat. But yesterday, it str...
