Tech Finds

One evening, admittedly after a few glasses of wine, my husband and I saw a commercial for the Amazon Echo. We were so intrigued, I purchased it from my phone…

I enjoy a good book series almost as much as (and maybe sometimes more than) finding a good multi-season tv series on Netflix. And much like binge watching on Netflix,…

Learning Hand Lettering

August 10th, 2016

I love the look of hand lettering, but I never thought about it being something that I could do myself. That is, until I came across a course being offered by Caroline Winegeart, an acquaintance I met in 2011 when we both worked at advertising agencies and were at the same conference in Jacksonville, Florida. I have followed Caroline's online musings as she ultimately developed…

Favorite Things: The Best Birthday Present

August 5th, 2016

I am at that age where it is hard to buy birthday presents for friends and for family. We all tend to indulge ourselves a bit too much and buy what we want and what we need for ourselves.

I quickly finished the six books in that series…

My quest for knowledge has taken me to architecture school, journalism school, law school, guitar lessons, motorcycle classes, drawing classes, yoga classes, coding classes, photography classes, pitch competitions, a startup business accelerator, reading thousands of books, watching movies galore, publishing a book, fits and starts of writing projects, more airline miles that I can track, the insides of conference…
