Each month this year, I am refining my life by challenging myself to do something or don't do something for 30 days. January was no coffee or caffeine for 30 days. It was a HUGE success. February was a healthy, whole-food diet for 30 days. That was an epic fail. Vacation + unemployment emotional eating proved to be a huge challenge.

Why do we love Disney? Besides being raised on The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, I wonder why I cry over a surprise trip to Disney. I mean, after all, it is an amusement park.

Before the year started, my word for 2017 was CELEBRATE. It was something I had been thinking about a few months leading up to the year, probably because 2016 was ROUGH. When I got to the end of the year, I held onto the word, but it didn't feel right anymore. I looked at my goals. I thought about what I wanted my life to reflect in 2017. While I hope that this year brings tons of celebrations, I have a new word for 2017.Read More
