2.18.18 There’s one particular image that is still haunting me, four days later. It’s from one of the cell phone videos that one of the students captured from the corner of the classroom. In it, the SWAT team enters the... Continue reading

When I posted on my Facebook page that my Word of the Year for 2018 was ‘transform,’ a friend immediately posted a GIF of Optimus Prime and asked, ‘Like this?’ I chuckled at first and then I thought, ‘Wait. Yes.... Continue reading

Thank you, Nicole! I LOOOOOVE your Fitbit alarm reminder! xoxo
Hannah, thank you!!!! That meme may have forever changed me. xoxo
Thank you so much, Bridgette! This means the absolute WORLD to me. Take good care of yourself this month--it's a tough one. Sending big, big love.
YES!!! Those teachers are a huge chunk of the shining stars I refer to here! Man, oh man, what an HONOR it is to get to work with all of you. So much love.
(The following is the introduction to my latest book, Self-Care for Educators.) I was sitting in the back of my Weight Watchers meeting when I clicked on the notifications on my phone and immediately wondered what the hell was happening.... Continue reading

It was always Eric who wanted a dog more than me. We used to joke that every time I came home from one of my work trips and there wasn’t a new dog awaiting me at home, I was surprised.... Continue reading

Last year I chose ‘intention’ as my word for the year but that never felt quite right (to be honest, I kept forgetting what my chosen word was) and in 2014 I chose ‘equanimity’ mainly because I thought it sounded... Continue reading

Oh my goodness, Angie, United was in the wrong there, without a doubt! I so wish more people had spoken up to help support/defend that family. My heart hurt for all of them. xoxo

When you were used to traveling by plane twice a year, you felt contempt towards people with ‘status.’ Always getting in line ahead of you, nabbing the seats with extended leg room, being bumped up to First Class. Jerks. And... Continue reading

I can’t believe I’m already three months into my ‘Project 40’ year. Didn’t we just ring in the New Year? Is it weird that I’m still writing 2014 on most documents? Do I sound like a crazy person as I... Continue reading

Some are new things, some are things I’ve done before and want to do again, some are things I’d like to revise… Swim an entire lap without stopping (that’s down and back, right?). See two movies, at the theater, in... Continue reading

Shift your focus. Demand—and declare—gratitude. Take all the pictures. Be still. Keep holding. Power pose. Read it all. Breathe. Close your eyes. Hold on to your heart. Literally. Laugh from your toes, through your belly, and out your eyes. Feel... Continue reading

So yesterday I wrote a blog post with observations that support this suspicion that I’ve had lately: We’re I’m old. And while all those things were true, I feel a need to write this follow-up post because guess what? Being... Continue reading

I bought a big bag of Epsom salt yesterday because I read that Epsom salt baths are full of awesome. They soothe achy muscles, reduce inflammation, help you sleep, etc., etc., etc. When I told my husband this and informed... Continue reading

It is December 31, 2013 and I’m bubbling. I’m spending time today saying good-bye to 2013 and deciding how to welcome in 2014. While I typically engage in a ritual to close out one year and welcome in another year,... Continue reading

I haven't been publishing my writing lately but I've filled up an entire 300 page journal since October with 'stuff.' There's something about this, my 38th year, that's making me extremely reflective. So here's some of what I've been thinking... Continue reading

We used to take this trip every summer. Like clockwork. It started as a bachelorette party, followed by another bachelorette party, followed by just a cheap way to get some pool time, some girl time, and some drinking time in... Continue reading

Eight years were lived here. Fully. We were married here. I was a teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal, project director, and MRL associate here. We adopted Lucy here and watched our family of two become a family of three. We... Continue reading
