A DC experience everyone should try at least once

April 14, 2015

Waking up early isn’t my favorite thing to do in the world. But I try to do it at least once every time I visit somewhere away from home. Why? Because I’ve found running in the morning at sunrise gives you a peek into a different location in a way you can’t see at any […]

What it’s really like going gray

April 10, 2015

Last month, I had a really fancy opportunity to help shoot a video about letting your hair go gray. I’ve battled it for years and I reached that point where the hair in front of my face was just too platinum to fight anymore. But I wasn’t sure what to do. Luckily I work for […]

Jordan (and her family) goes to DC

If your mom works in Washington, DC, you’d think you would have a chance to visit all the time. But if you live in the middle of the country, it might take two and a half years! But when you have two and a half years to plan out five days, you know it’s going […]

Being true to myself… As a grown up

March 11, 2015

I have spent years helping encourage Jordan to be herself. Be proud. Don’t hide. As I’ve focused on those lessons, I’ve spent a consistent amount of time hiding something about me: My hair color. I started going gray when I was 18. That was a while ago and through the years, my hair has gotten […]

Not to outdo our big #DisneySide party last weekend, Jordan and I also traversed through messy post-snow highways to see one of the final St. Louis showings of Frozen Disney on Ice. As I’ve mentioned before, Jordan has realized a connection with Elsa. In the movie, the snow queen’s frozen powers lead her to hide from the […]

That overwhelming moment

February 20, 2015

We are a busy family. If you add in our activities and travel and my work travel, a few things have been ignored lately: I am not exercising enough and the house is a total mess. No, not like the Hoaders show. But there are piles everywhere. The house feels like it’s kind of closing in […]

Prosthetics do not change everything

February 19, 2015

The awesome expansion of the eNABLE program has made it possible for more and more children to have access to the experience of wearing a prosthetic hand. The media loves it. As someone who used to work in the tv news world, I love the story: A cute child has a chance to flex a […]
