A Year of No Regrets

Sweat dripping down my face and gasping for air doesn’t sound like the best start to the new year, but 2020 is already turning out to be a year of no regrets. As I write, I am on day number 9 of 30 no missed days at my new home gym. The first day was the hardest. Climbing the eternal stair [...]

I’m talking about the pressure to get my house decorated with the right wreath for the front door and all the other Christmas paraphernalia for the table and the tree. No one understands what we moms go through so that our families can feel the [...]
