Write Yourself a Love Note

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and as a mom of three elementary school kids, that usually just means another excuse for them to eat chocolate and candy in class.  Obviously they are thrilled.  Most valentines are a generic: “I’m ‘beary’ happy you’re in my class” with a packet of gummy bears attached, or something cute and pinteresty. (Yes, I’m guilty … Read More

Progress Not Perfection

Ok, so here we are, January 2020, full of resolutions, enthusiasm, and energy.  Except, it’s January 9th, and the reason the newsletter hasn’t gone out yet, is because they have been waiting for my submission.  Embarrassing.  Of all months, I’m supposed to be crushing this one. Except, I’m not feeling the January wave of resolve.  I’m feeling exhausted and having … Read More

Slow Down, Be Present

It’s December and in the spirit of slowing down, I’m going to keep this one short.  Winter is nature’s way of forcing us to rest and while San Diego may not get snowed in, enjoy the cold (yes, I was born here, it’s cold!) and give yourself the grace to take the extra time you need.   So instead of … Read More

Ground Yourself in Gratitude

Fall is about embracing change, and November is the month where we are reminded to ground ourselves in gratitude.  I’m beginning to believe that this isn’t a coincidence.  Change can be hard, but continuously reminding ourselves to be thankful for all that we have is the key to help us through change.  Pregnancy is a difficult time where your body … Read More

Reframing Fear

They say the only thing to fear is fear itself.  Sometimes I wonder if I missed out on the fear gene … and I sometimes wonder whether that’s good or bad.   On the down side, I’ve gotten hit by a car twice on my bike because, as a kid I’d fly downhill like a bat out of hell without fear … Read More

It’s Fall-Shed Some Leaves

I love September!!  Finally, the beach fog has lifted and the crowds dissipated. To me it finally feels like summer, but bonus, the kids are back in school!! Woo woo!  Whether you have a preschooler or older kids, I think they crave the structure and routine that school offers as well as creating their own little life and persona outside … Read More

The Mustache

[Let’s start this off with the caveat that for purposes of this article, the word “mustache” must only be pronounced “moo-st’AH-shhhh-e”] The joy of the mustache (remember “moo-st’ah-shhh-e” ) started long before this Greece trip. Last year Dr. Cap’s sister sent a picture of their dad at a little restaurant on the Mediterranean next to an old fishing boat. Unbeknownst … Read More

Finding Comfort in the Discomfort

Yesterday I had a no agenda day with nothing planned but an overdue eyebrow wax and a day with my 3 year old. We started off with a “lets see where the day take us” attitude. My daughter and I exchanged makeovers with magic markers and we stayed in our PJ’s until the late afternoon. We later flowed spontaneously into meeting … Read More

Sweet Summer

Finally, the sun is out!!  School is out!  It’s Summer!  Glorious Summer!! Do you remember endless summers when you were a kid?  I can still taste that feeling of freedom;  no schedule, swimming, backyard barbecues, sleeping in a tent in the yard, sandy beach days, and staying up late for movie nights.  It was the best.   I could talk about … Read More
