new year intentions

I’m a big “to-do” list maker, and the start of the new year is no exception. My biggest challenge is reining in my long lists, so I’m left with a few realistic goals I can conceivably accomplish.  Often my intentions follow some sort of pattern or fit into the same general realm – whether it be […]

winter blues

I can’t be the only one thinking it – now that Christmas is over, can we stop with the cold weather already and fast forward to summer? Without the twinkle lights and festive merriment, it’s just not cute anymore. But alas, this icy monster is making it even harder to rise out of bed in the morning (will […]

one little word

It’s New Year’s Eve – I’m at the office today and making a trip to San Diego this evening to celebrate. The office is slow, and we’re going to have an impromptu mixed drinks party this afternoon to kick off the new year. I’m reflecting on this past year, and though I’ve shared my goals […]

new year

Yes, I’m jumping on the bandwagon of New Year resolutionists. But, I make them every year along with my bajillion other lists of goals. I could say that this year will be different – that I’ll stick to my resolutions and fulfill all my goals – but I say that every year along with everyone else. All this is to […]

excuses and accountability

As I mentioned, I didn’t come up with a new list of resolutions for 2015; instead I’m letting my one little word guide me (and still working on that 25 for my 25th list). But a big reason why I record my other goals in this space is so I’m held accountable. Even if only one […]

A bit late, but I wanted to pop in to wish you all a happy holiday season. I didn’t bring my computer with me back to Texas (best decision) so therefore no blogging. We arrived back in LA yesterday, drove to San Diego to pick up our Kipling, and are now back home trying to […]

on taking risks

I have always been the by the book, do-gooder, never take any uncalculated (not a word) risks, worry wart. Always. And I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it on this blog, but I suffer from a lot of anxiety. Even I know it’s absurd to get anxious about asking the drive-thru employee for a […]

my new year goals

With the beginning of the new year, I want to focus on my wellness, both mind and body. I want to focus on creating (and reestablishing) good habits, taking care of myself, and doing some things I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Some of these are from past lists, but they are things […]

the new year

A few days late, but we’ve been traveling through Texas the past two weeks. I’ll have a list of my new year goals coming to the blog soon, but for now I wanted to share the few phrases I’m hoping to live by this year (my form of a new year resolution). slow down, look […]
