Frozen in time

It’s been one month. One month since my birthday, one month since I was holed up in a Boston hotel room because of a flight cancellation, one month since I left for my first-ever trip to Iceland for work and the solstice sun that never set. One month ago, I was absolutely determined to start...

Are you full of yourself?

I have some big ideas brewing these days. Being 40-something isn’t nearly as scary as when I was helping to decorate everything black for my dad’s over-the-hill party decades ago. I’m having an honest-to-goodness blast coming into this age and the inner wisdom that comes with it. As I mentioned in a recent Instagram post, I...

Things are getting personal

The following post is actually one of the emails included in my recent countdown-to-summer marketing series for seasonal business owners; no longer available. We’re all so busy trying to FIT IN on social media that we forget to share our true selves sometimes. For today, I simply want to encourage you to get personal. And...

Beliefs we have about ourselves

I was just blogging earlier in the week about how I’m such a Gemini. There are things I heard about Geminis VERY early on in my childhood, and I absolutely agreed with them. Or did I? Did I instead become that person over time as I heard the traits I was meant to have, reported daily in my...

Bluegrass and hip-hop REI and Sephora Introvert and extrovert Cozy knitting or a journal, and the expanding lungs of outdoor adventure …mountains and the ocean Our marriage feels like a perfectly...

I’m not sniffling, you’re sniffling

I’m sitting here on a plane to Los Angeles, an entire row to myself (and a box of tissues, sniffle sniffle), and I’m thinking “gosh, does this make anyone else nervous too?” I mean, a LOT of us have a whole row to ourselves, flying Boston to Burbank on JetBlue this evening. Are we balanced...

Finding Magic

It all started on Christmas… I hope you enjoy this little tale of how the Hedmans found their dream mountain house in Vermont! Say what? The Monday before Christmas, Gary forwarded me a Zillow link to a ski house on the road up to our favorite mountain in Vermont, Magic Mountain. We hadn’t been actively looking...

Riverside Farm wedding with Brigitt + Stephen

Brigitt and Stephen were married at the quintessential Riverside Farm in Pittsfield, Vermont one beautiful August day. It doesn’t get more Vermont than this, and all told, it was such a gorgeous and thoughtful weekend from start to finish – from rehearsal dinner to sparkler send-off! No detail was left unplanned, as Style Me Pretty confirmed in their beautiful...

Three ways you’re already meditating

If you’re like most of us, you hear the word meditation on a daily basis, always nodding your head like you’re in the know but silently thinking it’s been at least three weeks since you gave it your last half-assed attempt. But the fact is, meditation comes in many forms, and I have a hunch...

Favorite things: audio books and podcasts

If you guys follow me anywhere online, you probably know that I LOVE listening to audio content. What I mean by this is books and podcasts. I’m addicted, whether I have something playing via bluetooth speaker while doing my hair and make-up in the morning, driving in the car to work, earbuds at the gym,...
