It’s been three months since our last update and it seems like these days we are going through a milestone a day! [Read more…]

What Recharges You?

When I got to 5:00pm on Friday, I had a bit of a panic moment. I had so much that I could do, but my brain just wasn’t cooperating. For a moment I thought about pushing through, but I realized that I probably wouldn’t be productive.

Things I Learned This Week

Good Morning!

This week I traveled to Napa Valley for a women in technology conference and am coming home inspired after getting out of my usual routine. I learned a lot though many great conversations and the trip gave me the extra boost I need to be ready for the next steps in my career.

I’ve always been someone who love learning and exploring new things. Before I met Rich (eight years ago today), I used to say that the main characteristic that I wanted in a husband was that he was not picky when it came to food, but I think what I wanted was someone who would want to continue to try new things. Despite how opposite we may be, I think the reason why we work is because we share the same values and are always up to learn something new. It’s the foundation of our relationship and I’m glad we have that as the foundation of our family.

I learned a lot new week and I thought I would share some of these things with you today. [Read more…]

Finding Contentment in the Flow

Good Morning!

I hope you had a refreshing weekend! Mine was just what I needed. I hosted book club on Friday, made it to a yoga class, met up with my Aunt and cousin in the city for dinner Saturday night and spent all of Sunday in my pajamas. The time to myself plus rest and family time filled my tank and I’m ready to take on the week!

I’m stopping in today to share my intention for the month, which is to simply let things flow. [Read more…]
