The Lipstick I Grab (Almost) Every Morning

posted on: March 22, 2018

There are many mornings when I'm running out at 7:50 AM, showered, dressed, and with zero make-up on. I try for mascara, but the one thing I always have to have on is lipstick.

Many of you have asked throughout the years, and I wanted to officially share my go-to morning lipstick...

On Managing Connections

This post is sponsored by Circle Disney. A smart and easy way to manage and connect with your family.

I have many flaws; but one of the things I have the hardest time with is time management. For starters, I've never had a 9-5 job, but I also think I am just wired that way. I've spent a few years trying to find a better reason, as if finding the answer would open up a door to a side of me that is always on time. Untrue! Some mornings I wake up two hours earlier for more time to get ready for the school day, and we still end up running through the doors, bookbags and lunch boxes swinging while we race.

It’s also an issue that pops up at home and how we spend our downtime there, so we’ve partnered with Circle Disney to mange River's screen time (and mine!), while keeping us connected! Circle is a little white box and app that pairs wirelessly with your internet allowing you to manage content and time online across every device in your home.

One of my funny little secrets is that I require a lot of solo time. I love parties, lunch-dates, family dinners, and am generally, really extroverted. I'll start a conversation with anyone, and often find the challenge in navigating a party when you know no-one kind of entertaining. But I also need and value serious stretches of time alone. Unstimulated by another person. It's something those close to me know, and I think it has something to do with being extroverted, having children, and have my work often be a "social" thing. The hours, and days of solitary pause to go back into the world and feel centered within it and those I love, can only really happen if I spend time with myself.

On Writing Letters To Your Children

These days, I've been thinking a lot about the ways in which I connect with River and Oak. Like every mother, I often worry about if they feel safe, secure, comforted, and heard. I've spent a good amount of time talking with friends about this specific challenge in motherhood. Lately, I find that this little way helps..
