Snow Day Statistics (or, snowpocalypse in the south!)

I had big plans for today. Ok, maybe not big, as in flying-to-Hawaii big or meeting-Bill-Murray big (Bill Murray is the shit!) but bigger than sitting-home-watching-my-deck-turn-from-brown-to-white big. You see, here in Charleston (South Carolina), the mere mention of snow, ice, freezing rain, wintery mix, or any synonym thereof, results in a complete shutdown of

The Ghosts of Christmas Past (or, Jesus rides a camel)

For this special blog post, special because it falls on Christmas Eve, I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane. I’ve scoured my journals to bring you some of the most memorable highlights of Christmas’s past. Christmas 1998: Evan was 6 months old, and I was already 3 months pregnant with Natalie (yes,

Have you noticed that things happen in threes? Well, the other day I saw three articles – one in the news, one on Facebook, and another on Twitter – all talking about the same thing! Naturally, I took that as a sign….there’s a there there. What’s more, I need to write about it. Pop

Tackling the Mental Health Crisis (or, there really are no words)

As you know, my blog (and my life’s purpose) is about operating from a place of Love rather than Fear. I try not to get caught up in the downward spiral of current events unless I can offer an educated opinion without succumbing to fear-based rhetoric. That being said, I feel compelled to write about

The Power of Perspective (or, if the shoe fits, wear it!)

“A shoe factory sends two marketing scouts to a region of Africa to study the prospects for expanding business. One sends back a telegram saying: ‘SITUATION HOPELESS STOP NO ONE WEARS SHOES.’ The other writes back triumphantly, ‘GLORIOUS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY STOP THEY HAVE NO SHOES’” (excerpted from The Art of Possibility by Zander &
