    This post is sponsored by Squarespace – a web platform that makes it easy to create beautiful blogs, portfolios and websites without touching a line of code. As promised here, I buckled down this morning to answer a few of the more commonly-asked questions I received while manning the Blogging Mentor booth at Alt Summit.

    Room For Growth

    01.28.2015 / FAMILY

    It’s an interesting thing, to watch your child grow from baby to toddler to altogether person. The very core of their soul is discovered more each day – a layered onion, revealing, eyes watering – until you’ve unearthed the person who lives in your home; the one sleeping just a few rooms away. She wants two blankets please, two stuffed animals, one water. No socks. One book. Three songs. A prayer. Watching her play – watching any child play, really …

    You Are Here

    01.27.2015 / WORK

    Last week, amidst glittered business cards and sequin headpieces, I was asked for my advice on blogging. I had hopped a flight to Salt Lake City to spend a whirlwind 48 hours manning the blogging mentor table for Altitude Design Summit, a conference that will always be dear to me in that it was the first entrepreneurial summit I’d ever attended, something like six years ago?

    I am not the fun friend, the one you call when your book proposal was just accepted and are in dire need of some celebratory dancing and perhaps Paris. No, I am the friend you call when your book proposal was declined, and your heart is in two, three, four parts and you need some talking on the couch and a full cup of coffee. Over the years, I have slowly come into this – a single goldfish growing into …

    Wardrobe 25

    01.13.2015 / PLAY

    Well, I didn’t expect to talk about this today, but here it is and here I am. For the past few months, I’ve been wearing the same clothes – 25 of them – over and over and over. It’s not earth-shattering, the idea of minimalism, and I’d even argue that it’s trendy to be a minimalist, which makes me like the concept eight thousand times less, but sometimes trends are here because they’re good, and easy, and smart. (How’s that …
