Day 24 – Goodnight, Baby

This was a very easy chapter for me to write because I LOVE to sleep!  And lo, so does my daughter Noelle!  What a crack up to watch her sleep.  If she was my firstborn, I would be scared that she would suffocate.  Since she’s the second born, I figure, […]


Day 23 – You’ve Got to Move It

This is one of my favorite chapters to talk about because my mom is featured in it!  Have you ever been set up on a blind date?  Well several years ago, my husband set up a “blind date” of sorts for my mom and I.  It was a date with a […]

Day 19 – Closed for Renovations

Wouldn’t it be nice to hang a “closed” sign over your life for a day? Just like a restaurant closes for renovations, in today’s reading, I write about closing down for a few life renovations.  I to encourage women to schedule in down time to catch up and take […]


Day 18 – I’m Not 13, But My Hormones are Raging!

I haven’t experienced the joy of menopause yet. The hot flashes. The mood swings. The weight gain. Did I miss anything? That’s why I interviewed Danna Demetre, RN and author of The Menopause Guide and The Heat is On about surviving and thriving during the menopause years.  Danna is an […]
