    Pack Your Bag

    Travel is supposed to be fun. I find I have more fun when I’m not schleeping multiple bags, totes or purses. And it’s more fun when I’m not endlessly searching for my phone, ear buds, mints, or a pen. So when I received an email about the Laptop Weekender V.3, I thought, “Ship me one, [...]

What Yoga Junkies and Amish Have in Common

[ 0 ] May 12, 2014

I went to hear a terrific Irish band, Flannigan’s Right Hook, with a friend who swore I would love them. She was right with one exception. The crowd of lost souls circling like piranhas was incredibly distracting. The Brew Top was filled with families dining and singles from college kids to comb over boomers. Eighty [...]

We’ve all been there. Walking out of the bathroom with toilet paper on our shoe, breaking wind in yoga class or peeing our pants after a hard laugh with the girls.
