Psst… want to know the secret for being a great mom? Think she keeps house like June Cleaver, cooks like a Food Network star, and actually does all of the things she pins to her Pinterest boards? Oh…and all while calmly raising her kids without ever raising her voice? Yeah….right. I am absolutely thrilled to share […]
Do you think you’re a bad mom because your child made a poor decision? Do you think you have to do mothering the way every other mom does (or other moms have to do it the way you do)? Are you trapped by the idea that you’re “just” a mom? Well sister, you’ve been hoodwinked. I […]
People always ask me how I do what I do. Sometimes they’re talking about how I juggle everything I have on my plate (which, if that’s your question for me, you should definitely check out my last book, Balancing It All).
I kicked off my blog for 2015 back in January by sharing about what an exciting year 2014 was for me. It was a year of open doors and opportunities with lots of things going my way. It was a “high” and of course, Dancing With the Stars was one of the highlights for me!
So tell me I’m not alone on this, but sometimes I get a little bogged down with all the negative chatter on social media—especially when it’s pointed at me! I’m a pretty confident person, but even the strongest of us can let those negative voices in our heads bring us down at times, am I right? “What will so-and-so think if I do this?” “What will they say if they see this?” “How will total strangers react on the Internet about this thing I said, did or wore?”
Hi Friends! We are halfway through 2015 and so far it has been a whirlwind of fun, family, and work. Plenty of work. But plenty of fun too! I am so excited to share a special date with you that is just around the corner. Mark your calendars for August 1. That’s the date my […]
Hi Friends! I’m so happy for this week off. No school, no work, just spending time with my husband, kids and friends at our home up north in the Napa Valley. It’s not just where our family business is, it’s a real getaway for me. It’s peaceful, low-key, relaxing and it’s a well deserved place […]
Hi Sweet Friends! Let me start off by saying how grateful and thankful I am for 2014. It was an amazing year for me both personally and professionally. When you feel like you’re struggling in areas just to keep your head afloat in life (which I felt like for much of 2010-2013) the relief of a […]
Being an outspoken woman of faith comes with it’s challenges. Most people think for me it’s about the entertainment industry and how I manage to maintain my moral integrity while choosing the right part or show to be a part of. While that can be challenging, I don’t think it compares to the scrutiny I’m […]
Hey Friends! Based on last week’s blog, I think we all agreed that using the word “friend” or “supporter” in lieu of “fan” or “follower” is the way to go! A shout-out to commenter @Connyann who gave a great acrostic for the word FAN- Friend. Always. Near.- which is a fun way to think about […]
