I caught up with Emily to get the details on both fabulous events and to find out a little more about her. I can’t even get a blog post written with kids underfoot, […] Continue reading →

So here’s the deal. Common travel advice is to leave your “good” jewelry at home and wear “resort” pieces. Um, hells no. I waited my entire life to get good jewelry and I’m going to wear it, here, there and everywhere. Do I worry about it falling off or getting stolen? Well, yes. That’s why I have it insured. I can literally take it off and leave it in the locker room. Covered. Falls off surfing. Covered. You get the idea. Now I don’t wear my […] Continue reading →

Spent the night with Dhani Jomes. How’s that for a story in six words? We all have a story to tell and Visa’s new campaign #GoInSix is encouraging us to keep it short and sweet. This is not a sponsored post, unless you consider eating BBQ with Dhani compensation. Which I kind of do. This social media campaign is all about telling your story on Twitter or Instagram-tag it with #GoInSix and you can win a Visa gift card. To launch the campaign I was invited to spend the evening […] Continue reading →

Remember when you were a kid and back to school was so exciting? New pencils, bus schedules, shiny new shoes…. Why didn’t anyone tell us that for moms back to school sucks? Stacks of forms, tuition bills, sports physicals, pencils to buy… Every year I try a new system. Every year I am convinced that my new system will mean I never miss a school play/teacher coffee/football tryout EVER AGAIN. I have four children, they go to four different schools and participate in four […] Continue reading →

I’m often asked how I keep it all together, four kids, four schools, traveling and writing for a living…oh yeah, and remembering to get the kids to the dentist and the dog to the vet. Honestly, not all that well. I can brag that so far I haven’t starved anyone other than a few goldfish and I’ve only come close to having a utility disconnected once (ok,maybe twice). It was easy to keep all of the to-do’s in my head back in the day when there weren’t many […] Continue reading →
