Ordinary, Happily Ever After

Balance?  What’s that? We all know that the work life balance is the bane of an Enrepreneur’s existance.  It takes SO long to get into grove of our work and then, once we’re in the zone, BAM, your toddler barges in and asks for a drink of milk (from the pink cup).  Then in walks […]

I’m going to say something that most people won’t say out loud.  Grief is stupid. There.  I said it.  Grief is stupid. My ex and I have a great relationship.  We’re good friends.  I always enjoy hearing from him.  I enjoy my new life here in Utah (oh, did I forget to tell you?  I […]

A while ago on Facebook, I shared a talk by Dieter F Uchtdorf. He said, “”If you consider success to be only the most perfect rose or dazzling orchid, you may miss some of life’s sweetest experiences.” My favorite thing to photograph are spontaneous moments that reflect those sweetest of experiences. I’ll be the first to admit […]

A Letter to my Daughter – 5 Ways to Heal a Broken Heart

So… I’m divorced.  A divorced Mormon.  Whoa. How’s that for a phrase I’d never thought I’d say.  But you know what, I never thought I’d say I lived in New Jersey, I never thought I’d prefer reading non-fiction to fiction, and I never thought I’d fall in love with MMA.  Life is full of so […]

10 weeks ago I started an 8 Weeks to Awesome Facebook group and, with the support of the lovely ladies there, I tried to lose 20 pounds in 8 weeks. I didn’t. I lost 8.  Mostly because of my tonsillectomy. But I’m actually totally cool with it and loved the group so much that I’m […]

I’ve been a runner for more than 20 years.  I love running.  I’m not even very good, but I still love going out for a nice, hard run in the morning. But, after 20+ years, all the articles I read about the dangers of running and the importance of cross training got to me.  Eventually […]

I’m a fan of Jello.  I love how it feels on my throat (especially right now when it’s sore).  I’m also a fan of Crystal Light.  It’s one of my favorite afternoon “I need something yummy right now” treats (at least it is when I have enough self control to grab that instead of my […]
