February BuffBoxx- The Polar Vortex Damaged my Box

Life is busy! I keep hearing how we “have to stop glorifying busy,” but it’s just a fact of life.

Friday Fitness- Let the Marathon Training Begin


My brother Bruce and I did something a little crazy for New Years- we signed up for the Rock n’ Roll Seattle marathon in June.

Learning to ski at Pass PowderKeg- Lesson 1/4 Recap


I had an epiphany last year when I was pregnant and watching a friend’s children take a ski lesson.

All the parents were on skis which gave them the mobility…
