Paper Towels, Medical Reports and Basket Weaving, Oh My! (My Real Absurdly Unique Dad)

Paper Towels, Medical Reports and Basket Weaving, Oh My! (My Real Absurdly Unique Dad)

It’s a random title, right? Yet that’s what pops into my head when I think about my Dad. He’s a simple man with a complex witty mind and I am often bewildered by the things he does and shares. Most of the time I laugh or shake my head at the stuff he comes up with, but then sometime later I realize how it truly connects to him and resonates with me. When I was younger, my dad often said “Sho... Read More »

What It’s Really Like to be a Beachbody Coach

What It’s Really Like to be a Beachbody Coach

2014 was ending and I was 7 months deep into post college graduation blues. Since turning the tassel, I was traveling on the weekends, working full-time as an Industrial Engineer during the week, and embracing the real world with a rather heavy heart. I did it “right” …I played by the rules. You know, the rules that state if you study, get good grades in high school, and join every extracurricular... Read More »

The last thing I needed on the day before Christmas school break and while I’m trying to finish holiday shopping online AND pack for our trip to see family is to find blue crayon in my dryer ALL OVER MY KIDS’ CLOTHES. Lucky me, that is exactly what I got this morning! Ugh. Yep, a blue crayon, and a green one, I think, somehow got past me in the laundry and ended up going through the washer and int... Read More »

What It’s Really Like Being An Only Child

What It’s Really Like Being An Only Child

  Growing up an only child in the 70’s was not very common. I was always accused of being spoiled and self centered. I spent a lot of time defending myself, explaining I did not get everything I wanted handed to me on a silver platter, and this was not my choice that I was an only child. Life was good for most part in our family, until the day my parents decided they no longer wanted to... Read More »

My Dad Died 8 Years Ago, But He’s Still Teaching Me Life Lessons Today

Ever since I was little, I wanted to build a business/brand/invention/something…but I never knew what that “thing” was. I’ve gone down a few paths before, and given some things a shot, but could never quite put my finger on what I was destined to do. Growing up, I always wanted to start a club or group in my neighborhood, but that “club” always ended up being me... Read More »
