This week was a busy one. We put up our tree and holiday decorations, did our holiday card photo shoot and ordered cards, had two doctor's appointments, work, and checking in on my mom.  I'm writing this Friday at 5pm and I am ready to go to bed right now! It was a lot, but I took some time for myself.  While commitments caused me to miss the gym twice…

I'm writing this Thursday evening from a hospital waiting room as a loved one recovers from a successful surgery. On the ride to the hospital my sister mentioned my post of what to wear for a hospital vigil and I realized I didn't even think of it when I got ready today.  But rereading it I followed the instructions; I wore my Universal Standard black overalls with a cream Lands'…

are you putting up your tree this weekend? Today is Small Business Saturday and I usually celebrate it by offering a gift guide of items made by small businesses.  However, I encourage you to not sit on your laptop today but head out to a brick and mortar establishment in your community.  Whether it's an independent bookstore, a clothing boutique, a craft fair, or even a coffee shop, those in…

However, as we get older we have different sleep patterns and find a bit of space prevents one another from waking up. we've found when we sleep at a hotel with a king bed we both sleep through the night. And the…

I cried, and I took a nap, and I woke up and had some soup and drank tons of water and went back to bed. And this morning I feel stronger. I read what I wrote and it no longer…

Last week I shared how I was in the New York Times and why I chose to be titled Mrs. in place of Ms. In the words of a very wise woman, that reasoning was “lamesauce.” Women have worked so hard to have a title available that doesn't define them by their marital status or age. Each time Mrs. is used it keeps it alive, and me using it gave…

Last month Lizz Schumer from the New York Times gave me a call and we chatted about capsule wardrobes and business casual dress in the workplace (see below). At the end of our chat, she asked me what courtesy title I would like as the Times still uses prefixes (Mrs, Ms, Miss, Mr).

Fall has finally hit in the DC area and it's straight up cold. It was literally 90 degrees one day last week so it's hard to accept we're in the season for coats and boots. We pulled out all of Emerson's winter clothes and also received a Stitch Fix box for her that has some super adorable and super warm pieces. As for me, I haven't pulled out my winter…
