If you’re sugared out, raise your hand! *raises hand* This time of year I get a lot of questions about detoxing and cleanses. In fact, last January, my husband and I did a 5-day juice cleanse (I’ll post more on it soon). There are many books dedicated to the subject, so here is my short […]

Goodbye 2012!

I’ve done a lot of reflection on the past year. There were a lot of things I did (and didn’t) do last year, successes and failures, triumphs and disappointments. Isn’t that life? Top it off with some mixed emotions at the end and I needed to sit with it for a few days. Some highlights […]

Friday Finds 12.28.12

I know, it’s not Friday anymore. But that’s not the point! Instead of finishing this post, my husband and I ran about eleventy billion errands in the last few days, including buying a crib (Baby Countdown: T-minus 6 weeks!). Also, while planning my own year, I realized that my clients struggle with setting good goals […]

Russian Tea Cakes

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it, and peace, joy, and happiness even if you don’t! I hope your holiday season has been filled with friends, family, and festivities.

Last Minute Holiday Gifts, Part 1

This post was going to go up on Friday last week, but obviously there was more going on in the world. I wanted to give current events some space and time – I was mostly unplugged over the weekend myself. It’s been hard for me to focus on the holidays this year with Baby Countdown […]

Friday Finds 12.07.12

Photo credit: Brad Ford Smith Well, November happened. My mom was here and we drove a lot and did some stuff and suddenly it’s a week into December. Oops. Here’s what I’ve been reading on the internet instead of posting: 56 Things to Do Instead of Spending Money Have you heard of Kiva.org, the microlending […]

Friday Finds 11.09.12

Fun fact: we have a “vault garage” with no access other than the garage door itself, so when our remote stopped working, we had to call someone. Yep, I just paid a man to break into my garage. The election mailers have all been recycled, it’s finally below 80 degrees in San Diego, persimmons are […]

I like to make a big batch and use some right away, […]
