This is 40

by Angela on June 4, 2014

I turned 40 on Easter, and I’m okay with it.  I’m fine with the age 40 and saying that I am now 40, but I would be lying if I told you I didn’t FEEL (or feel I look) 40.  It wasn’t until Easter Sunday came and went that I started noticing little things here […]


2014 Intentions

by Angela on January 1, 2014

I hate to be so cliche, but I really do like the whole New Year’s Resolution thing.  I like coming up with my list, trying to think of new ways to improve myself, and then attempting to carry them out sometime during or by the end of a year, usually failing miserably, but the intention […]


As 2013 ends…

by Deena on January 1, 2014

As 2013 ends, Angela and I discussed what each of us would write to kick off the New Year… it was decided that I would write a year in review while she focused on the upcoming year.   I’ve rewritten this article so many times now trying to think about how we collectively would have experienced […]


Do Not Fear the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM)

by Angela on August 4, 2013

I know the thought of cleaning your face with oil sounds absurd.  I thought the exact same thing when I first heard about it.  But before I go into the details, let me tell you why I like the Oil Cleansing Method (OCM) and have stuck with it for over 6 months now: – It […]


In my dreams you are 5 years old, you hair is the color of summer wheat and your eyes sparkle green in the light. You are laughing and running from me… looking over your shoulder waiting for me to catch you. I chase you but not too quickly, I love seeing your smile and how […]


So what does one do when they realize that summer is only a few months away, that their 40th birthday will follow not too soon after that, and that they’ve fallen into a rut with their exercise routine? Well if you’re like me you sign up for the latest fitness craze to hit the infomercial […]


New Year, New You 2013

by Deena on January 3, 2013

It’s a New Year, time for new resolutions… only this year lets be as kind to ourselves as we would be to others.  We want to start off the year right by setting small, manageable changes to our lifestyles.  We can build on those as we get stronger and have some successes behind us.  One […]


So Lessons learned… So I should start by saying no I’m not particularly worried… It could be me being extremely naïve or it could be because I just took one of my son’s Percocet. Why am I taking my son’s medicine? Well, that requires me to go back a bit. Basically, I wasn’t paying attention […]


So did you know that we can now call hanging around in a hammock swinging back and forth a form of exercise? Yes… I promise… really. Let me explain~ I personally had never heard of aerial yoga until my friend Leigh put out a call to friends to see if anyone wanted to go with […]


Happy Halloweenie…

by Deena on October 31, 2012

I don’t know about y’all but I love Halloween right up until I have to try and convince two wild boys hopped up on sugary goods that its time to go to bed. “No more candy, it’s time for bed.” “Just one more piece?”   “No it’s TIME for bed” “What about this one?”  No. Can I […]
