A Grand Hand Gesture

unnamed (7)

Chris and I met 14 years ago. We started dating 12 years ago. We have been married for nearly 9 years. We are deep in the thick of parenthood, so we sneak in kisses and hugs whenever possible (much to the delight of our kids who loooove to comment on our PDAs). For the most [...]


Work It

A few months ago I joined Shred 415, a fitness studio here in the city. The gym offers hour-long semi-personal interval training classes that kick my butt and keep me motivated.  The classes are a nonstop combination of hardcore treadmill work and muscle burning floor exercises.  I leave every high-intensity class sweaty and exhausted, and [...]
