Sharing Yoga, Coffee, and Food with Friends…

April 21, 2012

I really needed this today: And This: And This: Just kidding, I didn’t have that last one. But I could go for one right now. I went to the gym early this morning, after an hour or so of work. Then I met a friend at a hot yoga class and we went to Starbucks [...]

Friends as Family

March 10, 2012

This post is dedicated to my friend Petra. Because we finally got together today—went to a yoga class (Vish’s yoga, sometimes misunderstood in conversation to be Vicious Yoga), and then spent almost three hours in Starbucks reaffirming why we’re friends. Side note: I drank too much coffee today. My dinner last night with Carol was [...]

Don’t Go to Aberdeen

January 21, 2011

First, I apologize to anyone who lives in Aberdeen. This is a figurative expression, among the many adopted by my mom and me (similar to What’s Your Granola?) that really has nothing to do with the noun being used. Several years ago, we read this article that was written about a study in which a group [...]

Upcycle Your Thoughts!

January 18, 2011

It’s quite easy for me to think positively as I’m sitting on the porch in 70-degree weather in sunny Florida. This isn’t always the case (flash forward to me arriving home in the frozen tundra of Rochester this evening). It also isn’t the case that everything is always ideal in life. You know, there are curveballs and [...]

It takes Happy to make Happy!

January 7, 2011

I have a theory!  Actually, I have many, but this is a really good one (if I do say so myself). Do you know the saying, “It takes money to make money?” The concept is that if you have money to start with, it’s easier to make more. Now, I like to apply that to [...]

How Do You Keep Your Healthy Habits When You Travel?

July 21, 2010

I’ve been contemplating how to write about the food from my weekend trip to MA. I don’t think my friends that I visited read this blog, but I also don’t want to say anything that could be construed as an insult about the way they eat.  I really do like to think I’m pretty sensitive [...]

Weekend Trip

July 19, 2010

I spent last weekend in Massachusetts visiting two of my college friends. Catie lives there and Beth was visiting her parents. Lucky for us, Beth’s parents have a permit for Duxbury Beach, which is just north of Plymouth (last time we were there Beth took us to see Plymouth Rock—how disappointing!). Duxbury Beach works in [...]

Thanks for being on my left.

February 19, 2010

My Mom sent me this magnet for Valentine’s Day and said, “Just ‘felt’ like me ‘n you…”  I’m so lucky!

Happy 30th

February 10, 2010

I spent last weekend in LA. My cousin Kristen lives there, and she turned 30 last week, so I decided to fly out and go to her party.  She’s an amazing woman—goal driven, and totally does not sweat the small stuff.  She recently sold a 2-season pilot to AMC for which she’ll be the Producer, [...]
