The Importance of Our Parents Staying Healthy #AgingWell

Great Grandma and me

I participated in this program on behalf of Aetna and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. The holidays always bring about a sense of nostalgia for me, and a yearning to be the arms of my family once more. We're unable to travel to see them this weekend for Thanksgiving, so I'm sitting here, saddened, counting the days until we see them, hopefully next month. I want my parents to be around for a long time - to see each of their … Keep Reading

Help Me Choose My 2014 Holiday Cards, Please?

Happiness is... holiday photo cards

It's that time of year again - time to pick out the Douglas Family holiday cards from Minted.com! Can you help me? I couldn't be more excited about working with Minted this year!

Birthday Reflections

birthday love note from hubby

This hasn't been the best week, cleansing out all the yuck from this anti-candida diet. I've said repeatedly to my husband and friends that I didn't even want to celebrate today. But then I woke up yesterday and today feeling... different. Head less foggier. Body less achier. A little sharper, still weak and starving but.. better. And I think I can take this experience (albeit, still in its infancy stage) and say that 38 is going to be just like … Keep Reading
