I’m just coming back from vacation and while I’d love to be sitting here writing a new post, there’s a pile of laundry and a stack of mail that have to be dealt with. In the meantime, here’s a post from a couple of years ago that I love and am betting you haven’t seen! Enjoy and I’ll be back in the swing of things next week. Or next year. The jury’s still out on that one.  For Sale: 1968more

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.” As an actress, a public health advocate and former journalist, Holly Robinson Peete has seen it all.

Since it’s a vacation week, thought I’d share some posts you may have missed the first go ’round! This one is a little vendor love and how State Farm saved my hide a couple of years ago! So, read and be careful out there and always remember that cheap insurance doesn’t mean better insurance.  I didn’t tell many people about this, but on the drive home on Memorial Day weekend I was in bumper to bumper traffic and had a little accidentmore

I love Twitter. I have met some of the greatest people I know thru Twitter and have even managed to meet quite a few in real life. In addition to professional connections, I have made many personal connections as well. I formed an “in real life” group called the BWTs (Broads Who Tweet) so that the online group of tech savvy women that I had met over the years could meet face to face. We’ve even gone on 2 retreatsmore
