More little things

Girls enthusiasm

The more I focus energy on happy little things the more they seem to pop up in life. Do you experience the same thing? I’m sure they were there all along, but now I’m paying attention and that makes all the difference. Here’s the latest. Women, lady friends, little girls: They’re just the best. Not to brag, but the ladies in my world are just so full of insight, wisdom and enthusiasm. Emerson loves hot lunch with a passion that is hard to argue with and I can’t get enough of her contagious laughter these Read More →

Too small to fail, thoughts on routines

Book of Poetry

This recent post by Rebecca of Girls Gone Child could not have come at a better time for me. I’ve been thinking about the routines in my home lately and making some big and small changes that feel pretty profound.

I thought I’d start sharing a few of my favorites – as they seem to come in cycles based on the seasons, our home routines, adventures, travel and work opportunities. Here are a few things that really lighting me up these days. Sunshine Read More →

Meanwhile, back at the ranch

Malibu Ranch landscape

A few months back I had a special opportunity to attend a one-day introductory program at the Ranch at Live Oak Malibu. And at the risk of sounding trite, I’ll say it was a transformative experience. The kind of day that weighs heavily in your heart and constant in your psyche for for days, weeks and now months. My trip to Malibu was bookended by visits with dear friends, former PMD contributors Dayna McLeod and Torrie Sessions and the entire adventure was made possible by a perfectly-timed business trip on my husband’s part.
