What are your #ShareAwesome moments? {ShareAwesomeNow.org}

Posted by on Oct 17, 2014 in Be Informed, Looking Home | 0 comments

We took our three kids to Walt Disney World for the very first time this week, and minus a few meltdown moments (including a freak-out in the middle of our princess lunch and a regurgitation of a lunch all over the sidewalk in Tomorrowland), it has been a totally AWESOME week. And of course, we spent a lot of time snapping, filtering, and sharing...

A new kind of “playdate”: My Lean In Circle…and Power & Influence…

Posted by on Apr 17, 2014 in Be Informed, Career "Re-Entry" Series, Mom as Manager | 1 comment

When my kids were toddlers, I lived for playdates. The kids would play, and the moms would talk “shop”, which meant sharing potty training strategies and bemoaning the serious lack of sleep we were experiencing. Today at lunch, I found myself in a different sort of “playdate”. It was the second meeting of our new Lean In...

About a month ago I walked into my friend Karen’s house and exclaimed, “What’s that AMAZING smell?  Am I going to get a massage?”  It was her essential oil diffuser spreading a whole lot of incredible lavender and peace and calming love into the room…..and I couldn’t get enough.  Later that weekend we rubbed a...

Summer scheduling is serious business, and it always makes me...

Over the years, I have spent a significant amount of time and energy thinking about my career. I struggled with the reality that my career was going to take a different path after we had kids. I worked through dissecting my identity from what “I did”. I found myself juggling a few part-time jobs plus being a full-time mom and feeling...

Women, especially Mothers in the workforce is a hot topic! It seems that I’ve read about a million articles and books on this topic…..am I damaging my children by working outside the home? am I damaging my career by staying at home? am I damaging my mental health by trying to do and be everything? am I going to hit the glass ceiling? am...

“So, what do you do?” It’s everywhere; that question.  My gut reaction is to always say, “I’m a mom….first.”  It’s what I’m most proud of.  It’s the “thing” I do that I believe to be the most important.  And it’s true 100%.  And I think you’d be hard-pressed to find...
