It's My Birthiversary!

November is a big month for me -- it's my birthday month (it's my first 39th birthday this year!) ;-), and it's my anniversary month with Rodan+Fields. This business changed EVERYTHING for me....not only our finances, but my friendships, my sense of purpose and wholeness, my family's dynamic, and my skin.  I'm a new person since this business, and I'm so thankful for this blessing in my life. ...more

Can't Keep Up!

I have the happy problem of having so many fun and wonderful things going on in my life that I simply can not document them all.  I know, you feel terrible for me, don't you? ;-) ...more

First Day of School Already?!

Wow -- I'm sitting here in my home office and the only sound I hear is the dog "talking" in her sleep.  No screaming.  No bickering.  No stomping.  No pretending.  No TV.  The silence is making my ears ring! I dropped my little Thomas off at school this morning.  He'll be going to 1/2 day preschool 3 days a week.  The older three are in full day classes -- 5th grade, 4th grade, and 1st grade. Where have my babies ...more

Quite the Father!

When some of our girl cousins came to visit recently, they camped out in the play room.  This was the sign they made to claim their territory: ...more

Are You Ready for the Sun??

I've been learning a lot about the sun's rays and sunscreens lately.  Think you're ready for the sun?  I though so....but I was wrong! You might not be interested in R+F products, and that's okay.  But please get informed and choose a broad spectrum sunscreen.  IT MATTERS.  And here's a little tidbit....bottles labeled "broad spectrum" are not all that they claim!  That's why the FDA is forcing a change in labeling. The hitch?  It's not going to be enforced until ...more

It's a Sweet Life

Woke up this morning with a sweet little 4 year old boy patting me gently on the cheek as he murmured "mama" and nestled his warm little body next to mine....windows open and birdsong drifting in with the breeze. Life is good. It's going to be a great day! ...more

Just Can't Help It!

I'm trying REALLY hard to keep my "Skin Beautiful Skin" blog separate from this one, but sometimes I just can't NOT share! I know that I'm not the only one with unrecognizable skin after having babies.  Don't get me wrong....I wouldn't trade a single one of my beloved babes for my pre-baby body (most days anyway!).  But to have a simple, inexpensive, painless, and very effective way to get a *little* bit of that old body back?  I'm all over ...more
