I am so excited for this week’s episode with my friend Bri McKoy. At the beginning of the episode, I explain why I want to get back to some kitchen and cooking basics, and why Bri is exactly the person to help me do that.Read More
We’re all measuring something, but are we using the right metric? Are we measuring time or result? Are we measuring our waist or our health? We can measure our social media or our water intake, but if we’re not setting ourselves up for success, then we’ll fail emotionally every time.
In this episode, I’m musing over some measurements that caught me off guard, and how I’m shifting my perspective on some of the things I'm measuring.Read More

What is the best trip you've ever taken? And what does "best" even mean? Was the best location, with the best people, was it simple or revelatory or both?
This prompt is a great conversation starter.
In this episode, I'm sharing some of my favorite trips of all time. And at the end of me rambling, there are 10+ travel tips sent in my listeners. That's the best part of the whole show!Read More
Flowers in the Attic was published in 1979 and has become somewhat of a cult classic novel, especially for women of a certain age who passed it among friends.Read More
This episode and this concept is brought to you by an old boyfriend, who (I think?) made up this analogy and it contributed to the end of our relationship and also has stayed with me as a major life question and metaphor.Read More
What is your mantra? Do you have one? Do you need one?
On this episode, I share three different mantras that I've used over the years and that I still call upon when needed. We also hear from listeners who sent in their own life mantras.Read More
This episode is a TREAT! My friend and fellow podcaster Jamie Golden is giving us a skin care education. (And it turns out I really needed one.) She teaches us all about serums and vitamins and scrubs and I jump in and share my current favorite beauty obsessions, everything from a hair tool to lipstick to my holy grail moisturizer.
Every product Jamie and I discuss is listed below!Read More
Today’s topic - like many of these prompts - will either give you a buzz of excitement or a lump in your throat. I am aware that lots of things that we talk about on this show can fall either way. You can’t WAIT to talk about it, or you don’t ever press play because the title alone gives you some feelings you’d rather avoid. Today is one of those, I think, and believe when I say that I’ve been on both sides of this one.Read More
Family rules. We all have 'em. Curfews, screen time, don't wear shoes in the house, finish the food on your plate. In this episode we're talking about our most basic family rules and also the unspoken rules of a family that shapes our behavior.Read More
On every episode of this show, I have encouraged you to take the topics and prompts to your journal. And maybe you glossed over that part, because you don’t keep a journal. Because keeping a journal seems a little bit too much 13-year-old girl to you. Or maybe because keeping a journal - STARTING a journal is way too overwhelming. Where does one start a journal? Especially as an adult. How do we do this? Is it lame? Is it private? Will I feel dumb?Read More
This episode is a little different because instead of asking YOU to answer a question I pose, I’m asking my guest the questions. There are so many fascinating people out there with things to tell, every few months or so I’m hoping to have a guest. And who else to start with than my talented husband Jeff Tremaine.Read More
Sometimes I assume that everyone else is killin' it at life and I'm the only one flailing around. Sound familiar?
In this episode, I share some of the silly things people have assumed about me and a few things that I assume about everyone else. (None of these things are true.)Read More
This episode is a little bit of a different format. I’m with one of my oldest and dearest friends, Dr. Cara Pence, and we’re revisiting a childhood favorite: Judy Blume.
I have several ideas for a revisit series, where we look at some popular things from our past - books, movies, tv shows, et cetera - and talk about how they affected us and how we feel about them now. So this is the first in that series and we’re looking back at the formative era of pre-pubescent literature that is Judy Blume.Read More
Our ancestors, our enemies, our children, they are ALL our teachers. I can see that this topic might be something we revisit several times, from several different angles or categories, but today I want to talk about what probably came to mind FIRST: School teachers!Read More
