I didn't get a ton of Super Bowl recipes, but I did get enough to have a pretty awesome party. I won't be having a party though. I'll be watching the game and trying these yummy dishes with my family while wearing my PJs. :)

Note: I know that some computers are set...

It's natural to see the end of the year as a time for reflection and new beginnings. 2017 has been a tough year for me in many ways, but at the same time, I have so much to be thankful for. My teenager suffered with severe chronic migraines for the first half of the ye...

Just for fun, I surveyed my newsletter subscribers to see what they enjoy most about the Thanksgiving holiday. Here are the results of my very unscientific poll.

Question 1: What is your favorite Thanksgiving dish?

Most people surveyed "love it all," and who can blame th...

We’ve all been taught that when hit with bad moments in life, we’re supposed to “look on the bright side.” Well, how about when life smacks you upside the head and leaves you for dead? Then, it’s not always so easy to see that elusive silver lining.

But it’s there, and...

I came upon this quote as I was walking down the hall in the Fairfax INOVA Hospital last week. There were plenty of other quotes displayed on this wall, but this is the one that hit me. I wasn't sure why at the time, but it struck me enough to take a photo of the displ...

We've all heard of the power suit, right? The suit doesn't work for everyone, but there is some merit in the idea that an item of clothing or an outfit can make you feel more powerful.

What do you wear that gives you some extra oomph? Is it a little black dress, a pair...

When you read a book, do you take the time to read the book acknowledgments?

I do! 

It's like a secret look into the work the author did to make their story come to life. I had a lot of help with Tide of Deceit. Here's the draft of the acknowledgements section. 

I dedicat...

People ask me this question every once in a while. I'm sure you get it, too. I'm never sure how to answer, since for me, it isn't that simple.

Maybe it's because I'm an aquarius or maybe it's just me, but I love being near the water. Not a murky swamp, mind you, but giv...

I'm not exactly an adventurer in the typical sense. I don't white water kayak or camp in the Rockies. I have no desire to climb Mt. Everest...ever. But I do enjoy smaller, everyday adventures. I like exploring wherever I am, and I love finding hidden gems. I know that...
