Being on vacation sober… what’s it really like?

“Welcome, Mr. and Mrs. Rexing, may I offer you our complimentary drink of freshly pureed mango & tequila to officially welcome you to your stay at…..” Stepping out of the car wondering how best to politely decline this warm gesture, at the gates of this gorgeous five-star resort, just inches from my hand.  How does

Green Tea & Pineapple Smoothie

A little over a month ago I stopped drinking coffee. Such a bummer, I know (especially since we just a new espresso machine when we renovated our kitchen and created a whole “coffee station” for it). I have a feeling I may be back to coffee soon. But in the meantime, I’ve been on a

My unexpected story of unworthiness

This past Monday night I found myself on a call with the beautiful women of our mindfulness program, Reset & Restore, having a conversation about something I want to share with all of you today because I think it’s something we can ALL relate to.  It was the last call of our 4-week program and
