Rushing Through Your Life Won’t Help You Love It

Rushing to Next Flight

So many of the women (and men) I talk to regularly confess to feeling depleted, overwhelmed, and just flat exhausted. Like they’re living in the spin cycle of the washing machine or a good old hamster wheel. When we dig into how they’re living their daily life, one of the most common challenges experienced is […]

Haven or Hot Mess: How Does Your Home Feel?

Haven or Hot Mess Housewife Art by Harry Fredman

When you walk into your home, how does it make you feel? Do you feel relaxed and cozy? Do you feel anxious? Do you feel welcomed and at ease? Do you put blinders on and just try to shut out the chaos around you? If your home doesn’t feel like a haven, then one of […]

You Can’t Have It All (And That’s OK)

17_Have It All Robert McGinnis Saturday Evening Post 1950

With a childhood in the 70’s and an adolescence in the 80’s, I grew up with the song from the Enjoli ad in my head as the mantra about what a modern woman should be. As the sexy blonde sang about how you can have it all, fueled by the magic 24-hour perfume, I bought […]

Congruency in the Office Propels Your Goals

Does Your Space Reflect Your Goals? Congruency is Key

In the summer of 1998, I had my very first Windows Vista computer and my own AOL account. I set it up at the end of our dining room table, dragged a twenty-foot phone cord from the living room over, and waited for the beep beep beep. By the time fall rolled around, we’d stored […]

Tidy Up to Welcome Spring

She knows a Tiday House is Happier ( Vintage Pin Up by Earl Moran)

If you were a fairy hiding in my house today, you would have found me on my knees, under my desk, wiping down my baseboards with a Swiffer. I know: I have such a glamorous life. Yet, I know that I’ll be much happier with spring around the corner if I take some time to […]

“Writing in a journal reminds you of your goals and of your learning in life. It offers a place where you can hold a deliberate, thoughtful conversation with yourself.” –Robin S. Sharma When I read Little Women, I knew that I wanted to create like Jo March. That year, I asked for a diary for […]

Isn’t It Time to Clear the Bird Poop from Your Brain?

Emmanuel Garant Window gazing

A couple of years ago, I took my first trip to Europe. JB and I spent a couple of weeks in the Netherlands while he worked and then we took some vacation time to explore. We traveled by train – first from Amsterdam to Brussels and then (through the Chunnel!) to London. After seeing the […]

Optimize Your Energy: Repair Your Leaks

National_Mazda_Lamp_Vintage_Ad

“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.” – William James We have a few automatic timers in our house that turn lamps on to illuminate the early mornings and spaces where dusk turns suddenly dark. I’ve come to rely upon them, not only to light spaces, but to indicate […]

Hidden Clutter is a Sign of Perfection

1960

When I was a little girl, my grandmother had pink toilet paper. I had forgotten all about it until the other day when I came across this 1960’s ad for Scott’s Toilet Paper. Looking back now, I know that despite my warm childhood memories of her, she wasn’t “perfect”, she was a perfectionist. Everything had […]

By Living On a Golf Course There are a lot of things I love about living on the golf course. It’s beautifully maintained and often peaceful. The neighbors take immaculate care of their flower gardens. I love sitting on the deck with my morning coffee as the birds have their breakfast and the early golfers […]
