The Great Pumpkin Problem (Soup Recipe)

Who else started a garden for the first time ever while in quarantine then accidentally grew a 32 pound pumpkin? Just me? Cool.  So here’s the thing: I had visions of having pumpkins to pick as the temperatures started to fall in October. I thought the kids would sit on the front porch and carve […]

Let’s Get Proud of Ourselves

When I was in middle school, one of the worst insults was to be called “conceited.” If you appeared to like your hair, your jeans, or GOD FORBID, if you celebrated your own talents too proudly, you were deemed…conceited. You were too boastful. Too proud. Too much. I never wanted to draw this ire from […]

What I Hope My Kids Learn This School Year

The start of this school year feels so unsteady. On a family trip to the mountains a few years ago, we cautiously shuffled across this mile high suspension bridge.

Creating an Exercise Habit

In my twenties, I worked out to get a butt like JLo. (Hot take: She won the genetic lottery. I could do 1000 squats a day and could never get a booty like that.) I never enjoyed my trips to the gym because my only motivation was changing the person in the mirror. When I […]

My 2020 Workout Playlist

As much as I’m an introvert, I do best in a packed gym with a good workout playlist. I crave the camaraderie and the competition of running or lifting next to someone. Before this global pandemic closed fitness studios, I had never been one to consistently challenge myself at home. Until now. I’m proud to […]

15 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Grill

Summertime and the grilling is easy. Or is it? Penn and I love using our outdoor space to watch movies, relax, and of course, grill up some delicious burgers for dinner. Sometimes we get fancy and throw some chicken on there. (Crazy, I know.) But in my quest to find more summer dinner ideas, I […]
