Goal Setting Strategies for Tough Times

This year hasn’t exactly delivered the fresh start we had all been hoping for. In a reality filled with illness, school closures, cancelled plans and events, and other Covid-related challenges, it’s hard not to feel disappointed, or even defeated. Goal setting during uncertain times can be confusing to say the least, even paralyzing at times, […]

How to Plan Your Dream Day

One day, many years ago, Jordan surprised me by driving me to the Oakland International Airport. I didn’t realize until he parked what was happening, but it ended up being one of the most delightful days of my life. We flew less than an hour to Los Angeles and spent the next 24 hours doing […]

5 Tips for a Fresh Start in the New Year

At the end of each year, I set aside a little time to reflect on the past year, clear mental and physical clutter, and set some juicy new goals for the year ahead. I love the beginning of a new year because it offers the chance to start fresh and give some new energy to […]

How to Pack in a Carry-On for Two Weeks

Whether I’m traveling for two days or two weeks, my philosophy is this: carry-on or bust! My refusal to check bags may stem from the fact that ten years ago my checked luggage was lost and never found, but I also just love to travel with a really light load. Packing everything in a single […]

5 Things to do When Life Gets Messy

Things have felt a little messy recently. I found out that my book was stuck on a port in a far off place, and that after months of planning the timing of every last detail to correspond with the launch date, I would have to delay my launch by three weeks. Starting to travel for […]

5 Ways to Deal with Uncertainty

I’ve spent the past year and a half vacillating between moments of anxiety, grief, gratitude, and relief. As I write this, I’m preparing for my girls to go back to school in person full time for the first time since the spring of 2020. I’m so thrilled they will be able to get back to […]

Meal Planning for People Who Hate Meal Planning

Once a day at roughly five o clock I text my husband, “what are we doing for dinner?” and he texts back “I don’t know – what do you feel like?” and then I throw my head in my hands because we have failed again. I’m not being hyperbolic when I tell you that we’ve […]
