You really won’t need that 5th pair of running shorts on your three day vacation, we promise. … READ MORE

Just remember—your mother was right about the first rule of good guesting: Never arrive empty-handed. Sure, your hosts will say they don’t need anything.

I just returned from an incredible, eco-adventure and safari getaway in South Africa where I communed with leopards, lions, zebras and elephants (oh, my!) and took a much-needed break from the busy past two months.

Good thing I took my own packing and travel advice, which helped me stay organized and calm. Here … READ MORE

www.pinterest.com_

While setting goals to better ourselves is good in theory, the process often sets us up to fail when we inevitably slip (I can’t eat just one potato chip, either). This year, I suggest that instead of trying to break habits in 2014, we create new ones. Rather than dwelling on shortcomings, we should count our blessings and practice gratitude. It’s hard to complain about the little things when you are focused on giving thanks that your children are alive … READ MORE
