It’s no secret that I’m a FB addict. Well, maybe that’s a strong word. I couldn’t run my business, write my blogs, teach my classes, take care of my home and husband and dog, and everything I do if I spent all day on FB. I usually sign on around 5 am every morning...

Assume the Position

   A few days ago I was going through security at the airport, on a great high after sharing a fantastic infant massage teacher certification course.  As I’m making my way through the line, I automatically take off my shoes, then unpack mycomputer and push everything onto the belt.  Just as automatic, I walked right into...

It’s starting to get hot, and maybe where you live it’s been hot, it’s summertime and who doesn’t enjoy an ice cold lemonade.  Buying lemonade at a local children’s lemonade stand brings back great memories.  Do you remember having your own little lemonade stand?  The creativity in making your homemade signs, setting up shop, hand...
