I suggested (and am forcing on you) focusing on gratitude this month.  We choose what we are thankful for, absolutely.  Sometimes, though, I feel like we overlook one of the most obvious places in which we might focus our gratitude: on our own efforts.  I want to talk...

We are at a very interesting and confounding point in our human evolution: Never before have edible items been so readily available.  At the same time, never before have diet-related diseases been the number cause of death. We have access - easy, ready access- to food,...

Technically, one could say we are advancing as a society.  We have gadgets and gizmos galore, and we can read, shop, or chat at any given moment, in any location.  We can search any topic. We can call any point of the globe. We can connect.  Except, technically, we don...

I love avocados.  I think I could enjoy them every day, and not get bored.  Life, it seems, is much like avocados.

If you are in a relationship with or married to a working mom, you need to hear this.

Eeny meeny miny moe!

One of the things you embrace about being a Foreign Service spouse is that you know you will get to set up house repeatedly in various settings.  It’s a fact of life: We move frequently.  We move repeatedly.  We have to be (or, perhaps more accurate...

I read this a while ago on a site I can’t remember and it really stuck in my mind.  Not just rules for us, but also rules for us to help our little people learn/own, as well.

Rules for being Human

1.  You will receive a body.

2.  You will learn lessons.
