Journey or the Destination

Happy March!!  I don’t know about you, but my kids have already started thinking about elaborate ways to catch Leprechauns.  They are desperately trying to convince me that we NEED to buy Lucky Charms cereal so that we can entice the Leprechauns to come to our house in the first place. (I think the very idea of having a sugary … Read More

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
