Always Choose The Sunshine

Always choose the sunshine... Over the years my husband and I have often received long stares and dropping jaws. Why, you wonder? Well, when conversations start with “You have an army” or “Wow, you have a basketball team”, and so on, our response always happens to be “They are twins and triplets” and no one ever knows how to react. The response is often followed by blank stares, pure shock and “how do you do ...

TWSM Recipe Review ‘Lasagna’

Growing up in an Italian household there was always some type of pasta or bread. Over the years when I got into the restaurant industry my love for lasagna grew even more because of how much I could experiment with it. I will say serving lasagna in a restaurant fashion is interesting at times and can be very annoying but, when it is done right it is so good. This is a basic recipe but ...

I have suffered from anxiety my entire life, when I was a child it was deemed as me being dramatic or odd but as an adult it manifested into something bigger. I got to a point where I was scared to drive, I couldn’t handle a change in my routine, and I started having daily panic attacks over minor things. It was scary, but I reached out ...

So, I Am Single

So, I’m single and that matters.....why?  I used to ask myself that, A LOT.  Why did it matter to me that I was single?  Was it the world who set the precedent that at some point in my life I should be married?  Or at least dating someone and be working toward a committed relationship?  Or did I truly, truly, way deep down long for a relationship?  That was a tough question for me to ...

Stop Talking To Yourself

Stop talking to yourself.... My mind, like yours, is going nonstop 24 hours a day seven days a week. That’s why meditation is so valuable and so difficult. We are always talking to ourselves about one thing or another, and a lot of those things we’re saying aren’t very helpful. Our tendency is to be quite critical of ourselves. We wouldn’t talk that way to a small child because we know it would be cruel, ...

Benefits Of Strength Training For Women

Benefits of Strength Training for Women When I was in college, exercising for me looked like jumping on the elliptical or treadmill and doing steady state cardio for 30-45 minutes and calling it a day. Don’t get me wrong, steady state cardio like this is really beneficial for our heart health and cardiovascular system, however it should not be the only means of exercise. For a long time women thought they could just run or ...

Needing That Feeling Of Purpose

I think I lost some of my purpose in my job and home life over the last couple of years.  I just feel like something is missing that used to be there.  I have been trying to pinpoint what it exactly is and think I finally figured out that it is that feeling of purpose or accomplishment.  When my kids were younger, that feeling was always there, they needed me all the time.  It was ...
