Weekly Therapy: The realization and acknowledgement that I only have a couple weeks remaining in my 30s

the week: So… yeah. Can I remain 30-something in this blog space if I’m actually 40? I knew this moment would come, and I don’t yet have a plan for the change. I know that I want to continue to blog — blogging been a part of my life for 15 some years, and I’ve […]

Weekly Therapy: “Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell”

the week: Man, was it difficult to return to work this week! I felt like I hit a wall every day around 3pm and not even espresso could help me recover. Seeing as how we’re already a week into the new year, I’m spending some time reflecting on 2016 and the areas in which to […]

Cherry Blossom 10-miler: Training Weeks 3 and 4

So Week #3 was another bust: after suffering a serious case of DOMS from Crossfit (that lingered for three painful, terrible days), I endured a four-day painful and terrible streak of headaches. ZERO MILES. Moving on… I invested in a few more cold weather running pieces, since it seems as though this winter is sticking […]

Weekly Therapy: rock me mama like a wagon wheel

Weekly Therapy: needs more room service

the week: I spent most of my week in Buffalo… doing nothing but work. I forgot my book, which made me do even more work. Even online distractions didn’t sway my production. Even though I decided not to explore the city (um, it was 22 degrees, nothankyou), I had something of a writing retreat, so […]

Wardrobe Therapy: Banana Republic, LOFT & Trina Turk sales

I totally failed my November shopping ban. Totally. Completely. Utterly. Failed. This is what happens when there are sales, coupons and discount offers all up in my email this time of year. But… I’m not mad. I’m EXCITED. 1. Rice Dot Tee {LOFT} / 2. Sims Pants {Trina Turk} / 3. Cozy Cable Cardigan {LOFT} […]

Fashion Resolutions: for Fall 2011 and beyond

I think something that all of us aging 30-somethings can agree on, is a desire to dress more our “age” while still embracing our personal sense of style. I’ve clung to youthful trends for far too long — and I’m not saying that I’m OLD or anything *tsk* — just that I can’t really get […]
