I got up this morning and made a pot of coffee. Poured some in my travel mug and walked outside. It was warm, sunny and a bit muggy. Perfect weather. So I started walking. Just me, my coffee and a pair of green crocs. (With pink sweatpants. I was a fashion riot) It felt so … [Read more…]
I keep reading about not only letting go of material things to make way for experiences, joy, etc., but also about letting go of old habits or thoughts or attitudes. Each time I’d read it I thought that sounded kind of fluffy and, well, weird. Good grief, don’t make me “get in touch with myself.” … [Read more…]
I turn 42 today. Happy birthday to me!!! I’m cool with 42. Or any age really. Being alive is pretty cool even if life isn’t perfect.

I found myself at a plastic surgeons office this week sipping wine, eating shrimp cocktail and learning about how to melt your fat. Or, more specifically, how to freeze your fat. Really. How did I come about this? Well, I have a friend whose husband is the plastic surgeon and we’ve all met on a couple … [Read more…]
Alright, there is nothing “simple” about hair. It’s fraught with all kinds of emotional baggage. We have a lot of hang ups about it. Grey hair before the age of 80 seems to be sort of taboo. As if, “have you never heard of hair dye?” Can we cut if off, dye it, grow it … [Read more…]
