On Perimenopause

Yep, I'm talking about it.  We're back to another 40 Lessons over 40 blog where I share all of the things I have learned since hitting my forties. Today I want to talk about what I have learned since entering perimenopause (almost there, menopause! I'm coming for you!) fairly early in my forties. A little Backstory first. I have always been fairly regular with my cycle, though I did discover a thyroid condition a little later in life than I would have liked which, having discovered it a little earlier, might have saved me years and years of super heavy...

The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

We are loving our book chats this year in our Facebook Group. I'm so glad I decided to take the plunge and try a whole new format this year in the group, one where we can focus on a theme each month and dive into some amazing content, chat about a book, learn from experts and so much more. This month we are discussing The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.  I decided to feature this as our first book because I happen to love what his morning routine suggestions have done for my own morning--and whole day going forward, for...

Our  theme this January in the group is "Embrace the Morning" and vision boards are. a big part of that. We're setting goals and...

Changes in Friendships Over Forty

It's a rainy Sunday, a perfect time to talk about an issue that we all face as women, and, let's be real, it's something that spans the ages - sorry you spring chickens who look forward to your more established years. Friendships still change and sometimes they just fall apart. Sometimes they even fall apart and no one ever tells you....those are the ones that really stink. There are two types of friend break-ups, one of which is the subject of this post today because no matter how old I get or how many accomplishments  I have...no matter how much...

Running a Small Business During Covid - An Open Letter to my Customers

Dear Friends,   I haven't posted a blog in some time, mostly because I have been rather busy in the studio, but also because this has been an unexpected time for family to reconnect, to have dinners together again, to go back to all of those things that I have genuinely missed. It has also been a time to battle hardship together. It seems that some businesses, like some families, have flourished during this trying time of Covid, but some have suffered irreparable damage. I have felt for and supported all of those businesses that I can, like many of...
