There’s a famous quote by the musician Billy Preston, “If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with,” which inspired Stephen Stills to write the popular song, Love the One You’re With. We often use that expression around our house. It has many meanings, but I think it became popular in our house a few years ago with our family’s increasing usage of personal technology. I am certainly guilty of continually checking my iPhone, and often feel the need to get back to people right away both professionally and personally. I know there are many benefits to being responsive (and I believe it has helped me, especially in my business) [...]

The other night I streamed some TED Talks while holding Ellie, and one that I enjoyed was by Dr. Ivan Joseph, a college soccer coach, on raising self-confident kids. Check out the TED talk here. Dr. Joseph shared lots of interesting observations, but one that caught [...]

April Fool’s Day is a great way to have fun with your family! I guess I am a simple person, but I always get a kick out of pulling someone’s chain… I have had some fun in the past with my husband and kids on April Fool’s day.

Smoking was easy, but dogs….. that rule has been hard for us to keep, especially since our youngest is obsessed with dogs. She asks us repeatedly if we can get a [...]
