Dear Little One

Well, we are 2 days away from a brand-new baby entering our family.  Our oldest daughter is set to deliver by cesarean on Wednesday and I can’t help but be so excited and anxious about his arrival (that’s right, it’s a boy)!  I’m not anxious in a nervous way, I am anxious in a “I…

Up, Up and Away!

I have spent the last week packing and unpacking my suitcase for a girls trip to Mexico. I’m sure I have twice as many clothes as I need, but at least I won’t have to go naked. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this trip with friends that I have known for over 40 years…..you…

Our Favorite Vacation & Huli Huli Chicken

The other day I made something to die for – Huli Huli Chicken.  This dish brought me right back to our favorite family vacation and today, I’m going to share it with you! I have mentioned it in a previous post (Deal with the Big Guy), so I won’t go into all the details, but…

Traveling with a Chronic Illness

Let me start with saying this: I am very open about my MS. I understand and respect those who keep their struggle with Multiple Sclerosis to themselves, however, I find that its therapeutic for me to share my story. I am writing about it with the hopes that I can shed some light on this…

Finding Santosha

Santosha – To be content with what is My sister in law and I have registered for a yoga class once a week for 10 weeks taught by one of my favorite people. I have known this instructor for at least 10 years – I first hired him as an instructor teaching yoga and fitness…
