Hello 2020, What’s your One-Word?

It’s time again.  Another year, another word.  Hello 2020. Last year I shared my philosophy on resolutions. They don’t work for me.  I stopped making them because it didn’t make sense-why set myself up to fail? I decided to try something different and embrace a simple...

Are You a Duffle Bag or a Dump Truck?

I over-pack. Every single time I swear, “This trip I’m only going to take what I know I will need, not take anything extra, travel light.” And yet every time, my suitcase is heavier than I expect, jammed with things I will never use or wear. A four-day trip?  I...
