[ 0 ] April 13, 2014

Fess up ladies, we all have our bad habits – over consumption of wine, chocolate, shoes or drive through tacos or burgers.

It was divine intervention that I had received a copy of this back-to-love-basics book by John Mark Comer, a groovy pastor and oracle of love in Portland. I had just ended a relationship that I thought would be […]

It’s Time to Part Ways with Your Chair

[ 0 ] January 28, 2014

You’ve been in a one-way relationship with a total user: your chair. It’s robbed you of your vitality, energy, creativity, and the butt you could once bounce a quarter off of. After standing at work for just three days, I’ve become the non-sit evangelist. Sitting is evil. It kills your metabolism, creativity and potential for […]
