From the inside out

This time last year, I began a 30-day curl challenge with my dear friend (and co-worker at the time) Carly. As I reflected on that month a year ago and the incredible momentum it game from the inside out, I wanted to share this with you too. I faced one of my biggest fears and lived to write about it:...

Where’s your perfectionism hiding?

We all have those areas of our lives that we feel we have pretty mastered.

For a girl who spends the majority of her time on a plane and has a travel bug the size of Texas, my disdain for planning travel accommodations is pretty ironic. From searching hotels to mapping out locations to deciding on the appropriate means for transportation,...

Laughter: Our Universal Language

In the Lake City of Udaipur, I spent my final morning in India on a small boat with about 10 other people from around the world….none of whom spoke English. As we fumbled through buckling our large, orange life vests (quite fashionable and inflatable) the back of our meager ship broke out in a roar of feminine laughter. A middle-aged...
