  No, not that kind of tribe! I’m talking about a group of like-minded individuals that you have grown to trust, have similar goals and are supporting you in accomplishing your goals as you support them.

Top 3 Reasons to Become a Blogger

Blogging gets a bad rap. It’s still thought of as a narcissistic, attention-seeking time-killer just to post status updates on Facebook. Psychological studies have even been done on it.

Trying to Have It All

Superwoman

I’ll never be SuperMom, but that doesn’t mean I can’t try and have it all. If there’s anything that turning 40 and watching your 39-year-old husband battle cancer teaches you, it’s that thinking you’ll always have later to live the life you really want is foolhardiness.

While I’m sure no one really noticed, *ahem* it has been over TWO MONTHS since my last post! Ack! Hellooooo… anybody out there?

Mr. Mom Loses His Training Wheels

2658174628_049a403892

It has been six months since I shifted gears from stay-at-home mom to working mom. The transition hasn’t been an easy one, and it just got a little harder. On Friday I started a full-time contract position with Starz Entertainment. This means, Danny is at home full-time with Reagan. Alone. Without a lifeline. Up until […]
