How Barbara Walters and Gretchen Rubin Helped Me Overcome Social Anxiety

When I was envisioning our wedding a year ago I decided to keep the bridal party simple and have my two sisters stand up there with me. I’d made a mental list of the important women in my life and realized that I could either have 15 bridesmaids or 2. There really wasn’t much inContinue Reading

The Infinite Possibilities in Saying “I Do”

I used to think that freedom meant boundlessness. I used to think it was like looking at a vast horizon with every possibility in the world. I used to think freedom meant the ability to choose literally anything at anytime… and to change my mind at the float of a feather. I’m about to makeContinue Reading

I’m peeling off the pressure this summer – you with me?

These 9 words pretty much sum up how almost every woman I know feels: Tired of feeling like we have to be it all, do it all, have it all,… perfectly, now, and at the same time. Aren’t you tired of feeling like there is always more to do, with little to no time andContinue Reading

Try saying this to yourself once in a while.

Two weeks ago I mentioned that Mike and I are doing a super-intense workout and nutrition program to get in tip-top shape for our wedding. It’s taking up a lot of time and requires quite a bit of energy and pre-planning. As one of my girlfriends from childhood said, though, “You’re never going to regret looking amazingContinue Reading

Is doing this sucking your energy? If so, here are 4 simple steps to cut it out.

I used to have this thing where I really wanted everyone to think that I had it all together — you know, that I was perfect. During this same period in my life (because real life is, indeed, often like a novel, full of perfect irony and poetic justice), my credit card debt was mounting.Continue Reading

How to teach your kids about money (or anything else, for that matter).

A lot of folks I know (myself included) have either been through so much therapy or taken so many personal growth seminars that they’re hyper-focused on not screwing up their kids. And while I think that every soul who comes into this world has their own karma and that we’re not solely responsible for ourContinue Reading

We tend to try different cleanses and nutritional approaches rather frequently, so I didn’t think much of signing up for a personalized online coaching program from a guy who Mike found on Instagram. But it turns outContinue Reading
