Let's talk about balance. No, I'm not talking about a new yoga pose. I'm talking more about balance of the proverbial variety. 

How do you find balance in your day to day? Do you start your day with a routine, or are you more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants type? I t...

I've noticed that I tend to get asked a certain question fairly frequently lately. 

"Are you still doing music?" 

Let's leave out the fact that I'm not even sure what doing music specifically entails and focus on the question. Are doctors asked if they're still "doi...

I have a confession to make. I am a worrier. I worry about things. A lot. Things I can't control. Things I can. And although every ounce of my sane self says this is silly, you KNOW you can't control this, I still find myself wasting time thinking and thinking and thin...

I am a mom. I am a wife. I am a marketing professional. I am a singer. I am a songwriter.

I do the laundry. I rescue lost socks. I do the grocery shopping. I cook the food. I do the dishes. I clean. I yell. I give hugs. I have dance parties in my kitchen.

Being a creative person can be really freaking hard. You feel this need to create - to get your feelings out into the world - but sometimes you get so caught up inside of your head you end up blocking yourself completely. This can then spiral into a whirlwind of self-d...
