For the past few years I’ve been steadily growing my vinyl collection. It all started after a trip to Ojai during which I found myself at the cutest little bar listening to records and drinking wine from a can. A gorgeous bohemian bartender threw on a record by William Onyeabor and I...

Things I would rather be doing than trying to have a perfect body, be a perfect mom, run a perfect business, and live a perfect life: Eating Tacos Laughing until my belly hurts (and maybe I even pee a little, don’t judge me) Pull-ups Teaching pull-ups Watching videos of kickass...

At 5:30 this morning, I walked into my son’s room to turn off the light. Every Summer, Isaac jets off to Maryland to spend 6-8 weeks with his biological dad, and every single time it hits me hard–no matter how old he gets. I’m grateful that he gets this...

I did something I never imagined I would do–I bought a longboard. I did it so that I could cruise around with my 9-year-old on his skateboard, helping him ease a bit more into his discomfort zone–while I, inevitably, follow suit. In the past few weeks we’ve had a...

It happened during a Strongman training session, in which there were very heavy sandbags involved. The task was, pick up a sandbag from the ground and carry it 100 feet, working up to your heaviest possible bag. I love this kind of stuff, and I loved the newness and the challenge of the task. And it...

Plants are disposable, right? Like they last for a little bit, then die, and then you buy new ones to replace them? AM I DOING THIS RIGHT?! Well, yes and no. See, I’m doing it and killing them and learning and starting over again–and not giving up. So no, plants...

Over the weekend I was relaxing at the pool with a Bloody Mary and a good book, and I overheard a group of girls talking about another girl. YES I was at the pool. It’s Southern California, what can I say? Some days in “Autumn” it’s 80 degrees and sunny,...

  Labor Day Weekend in Cali was hot as a mofo. It appears that Summer is finally making an appearance, and no one in the beach cities has air conditioning…so, the ocean it is. We will brave the chilly Pacific waters because we are so damn hot we just...
