Life As It Happens To Be

Let’s catch up! I haven’t written in a while, though I’ve been blogging for BEST BRIDE WEDDING PLANNERS in Beverly Hills, CA. (Which is really cool) Our house is built, and finished. We’re settled in, focusing on work, school and our daily lives. My brother is settled in his new job, and apartment, and doing very well. I’m going swing…

The Hangry Diet

I haven’t had sugar or carbs in two days. Let me just tell ya’ll, if you could see my expression right now- you’d probably laugh. I look like a tired person, maybe as tired as a mother, one that’s perhaps slightly insane. I have a mild headache that will not go away, I’m in serious withdrawal from lack of chocolate,…

The Matter of Growing Up

I hear friends of all ages state: “I’m out of college, busily working and happily married and STILL don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.” Or “I’ve been married for 35 years, put my kids through college and I’m about to retire and STILL don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.” They…

CANCER — HOW CONCERNED ARE WE?

  Hey Ya’ll! I’m taking a course on the Biology of Cancer from Johns Hopkins and wanted to share some of the cool stuff I learned. (I am no scientist, so take what you read with a grain of salt.) This is the first week, they presented statistics of how many deaths cancer causes worldwide. They believe 20 million people…

WHY SHOULD YOU DANCE?

Ya’ll cannot deny it- dancing is coming back. Sure we get all nostalgic looking at pictures from the forties, fifties and sixties. Those black and white images of young people dancing like there’s no tomorrow. But do you ever just go; “You know, I’d like to learn to dance.” Or “I am doing this!” Dancing still lives on today, and…

How NOT to Fall In Love (with the wrong person)

Yeah, I’m a big expert on this subject…not. This is me talking to me. It’s easy to fall in love, too easy. You will meet this…guy. This super attractive really cute guy. And he’s looking at you in the ways you want to be looked at. He’s got a really great smile. He teases you, and flirts. It’s all light…

How to Survive Your “Off” Days

Everyone has days they are “off”. Not like “off work” but “off my game” days. Days when you brush by an existential crisis, and borderline depression. Days when it’s a tough battle to fight. Your past is looming over your shoulder, your future looks like walking a light beam and someone could switch it off at any moment- and right…

My Christmas Eve (in essence)

  Christmas Eve evening: my family is piled downstairs together watching “Dory” and eating way too much chocolate. All good things. It’s pretty Christmasy here, surrounded by family and presents and beautiful lights. But I’m restless, and don’t want to be inside. I’d rather be on a mountain top somewhere, being adventurous. At least off riding four-wheelers or horses. All…
