It’s time to let you in on the secret that is my daily meditation practice. For the longest time, I struggled with making meditation a daily habit. I would stick with it for a few days, weeks or even a month and then it would just sort of fall to the wayside. It was frustrating […]
Oh you guys …. I wish I could tell you I had some epic weekend, but what I’ve been up to will have to wait until next Monday when I can actually make it official. Until then, I’ll stick with the basics, because I still managed to sneak in a few of my favorite things, […]
This year, I celebrate 13 years living in New York City. THIRTEEN years!! To say I’ve always been in love with this city would be untrue. It has tried my patience and my sanity, but it will always have my heart. When I moved here, I had no intention of staying as long as I […]

Since I’ve mentioned that my weeks and a majority of my weekends have been consumed with a big project I’m working on, David and I decided that for the long weekend, we would have an all-day date on Sunday – a Sunday Funday, if you will. I remember when Sunday Funday was synonymous with hanging […]
Traveling with dietary restrictions has the potential to be intimidating and at times can seem next to impossible.
