Do you sometimes feel too connected to the world? Like, all the information coming at you just overwhelms your senses, your soul? I’ve had that feeling a lot lately. I think it has been building over the last few years but really propelled itself this past year. The news comes fast and is constantly changing.

Five easy tips to reduce your waste this Earth Day!

November 23, 2016

This week has been a tough one, for me and for our country. I have found it hard to write, to know what to say, to comprehend what was happening in the world. I had planned on writing a post about camping for the last week or so, even had my catchy little title ready, "To Camp or Not to Camp, That is the Question."

My husband and I have been very blessed to see so much of this world and to do so with our kids and, many times, while working. But there is the always the flip side. We work very hard, take a lot of chances, and, quite often, have nothing to show for it.

I decided to move to LA to pursue an acting career in 1998, af...

Honestly, working out when I was traveling used to be the last thing on my mind. Then I hit 35. Things all started changing then. I got tired of always coming home from a trip heavier and feeling like I had to start the fitness quest all over again. I mean, it still happens, how could it not when you are eating out more and indulging in more wine than normal, but I have found ways to make it better. I may not be able to go to...
