This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

The new measures at our schools to “enforce” healthy eating are being done without consideration or logic, in my opinion. (more…)

Clarify The Problem

If you are feeling unsettled and/or anxious, it’s often because we don’t have the clarity required to identify what is really bothering or triggering us.

Not All Website Themes Are Created Equal

You know that your small business needs a website, right? Your customers are online, so you should be too. Even if you aren’t especially technologically savvy or confident, it’s really never been easier to create your own simple branded website. However…

Not all website themes are created equal.


Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann, 1927

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons. (more…)

Educate yourself!

Your mind is beautiful. Treat it well.

Expand your thinking. Study. Learn. Stimulate your brain. (more…)

Sometimes Say Never

Although we all know, and might share the saying “never say never”, we also have to acknowledge that there is an exception to every rule.

Here are some things that we feel justified saying “never” to – and, just maybe, you will too. (more…)


Although we typically use our Roundup to look back and reflect on the news and lessons from the month that was, today, we are all about looking forward and moving forward, because we think (hope) there’s so much ahead for us all!

While we try to appreciate every new day (and each moment) as a jumping off point for new and better, the first day of a new year symbolizes hope, renewal, and opportunity.
