Top 5 Considerations for Winter Skin

November. Often called Stick Season in Vermont. Cold, but not winter yet. Leaves are gone. Snow isn't here yet. Gardens are dying. Skin is drying out... Oh the plus side? It's cozy sweater season. Cute boots. Leggings. Scarves. Hats over... Continue Reading →

Never Underestimate the Power of Small

Let me tell you something- this motherhood journey teaches me something new every day. After a long day back at my seasonal job, I picked up my daughter, we headed to Aldi (if you're not shopping there you're missing out!),... Continue Reading →

How Does Your Garden Grow?

I'm guilty of it too- we all want instant gratification. When things don't work in the first week, we often dismiss them. It's why millions of dollars of exercise equipment sits unused in basements across America. I want to plant broccoli on Monday and eat it on Friday. When it's not ready until August, it's hard.

You Are What You Do 

I only recently began to think of myself as a runner again. I'm trying to get out at least three times a week. On Mondays I can run by myself. There's something magical about pushing yourself, getting past the point of quitting and literally going the extra mile. Feeling your body accept the task and re-energize. Thing is, you don't have to run hundreds of miles a week to be a runner. You just have to run.

It’s Time to Work on Your Foundation

I've loved those shoes since college- they were the perfect shade of dark oiled brown. They fit my feet perfectly. I've walked millions (OK, plenty) of miles in these shoes. I've worn them with pants, skirts, shorts, in all seasons and all weather. The party hasn't even technically started yet, and 1/4 of my favorite shoe is missing. The other shoes in my bag? Slightly ratty flip flops. Not good.

Branching Out

I've fallen in love.  With writing, with working from home, with helping others. The whole bit. I've always found it difficult to define what I love to do- I like to do all sorts of things, but over the last year of blogging and working as an educator with Beautycounter I've really discovered that I love this work.

Want Big Results? Start Small

Big, sweeping change is hard. If we crash diet, it comes back. If we try to go cold turkey on TV, we end up binge watching three shows the first rainy day. If we try to cut all sugar out... Continue Reading →

Collect Moments

Collect moments, not things. It's my new mantra. It's changing my life. Being a #mompreneur and working from home is an amazing experience, though not without challenges. My work can blend into my family time and vice versa. Throughout all... Continue Reading →

Consistency

Raising a little human is hard work. So many needs, so little time. Don't forget your needs either- you can't do anything if you're not taking care of yourself. Now that summer is here (almost) and we're getting into new... Continue Reading →
