I Want a Potcake!

Potcake Place dog rescue in Turks & Caicos

I joke that I can’t decide if I want to stay home and take in stray, unwanted and elderly dogs, or if I want to travel. My two passions are in conflict. I can’t have all these dogs (and some cats) if I’m going to be off gallivanting around the world. So I’ve been struggling with ways to do both. I’m reminded of a trip I made last year to the Turks & Caicos where I discovered the island’s dog…

Wagyu & Wine Event at Capital Grille

I try to eat healthy but every now and then (okay, more often than I’d like to admit), I do crave decadent, juicy burger.  Seriously, I could be a vegetarian if it wasn’t for beef. Capital Grille is our go-to restaurant for family occasions and I never pass up their Oscar-style filet. So it never occurred to me to order a burger there until I heard about their Wagyu and Wine event.  Wagyu is a breed of cattle in Japan…

What I wish everyone knew about caring for a dying parent

  Death is birth in reverse. That’s what our hospice nurse keeps telling me every time I question a new behavior of my mom. And every time I find myself in the baby aisle at Target buying diapers, sippy cups, and picture books, I realize just how right she is. Fifteen months ago, my mother had a brain aneurysm. My life, and my self as I knew it, changed dramatically in the months following as I recounted in this blog…

When a wellness retreat is just what the doctor ordered

I thought I was taking care of myself. My friends and my kids kept asking, “Are you okay? Are you taking care of yourself?”  I always replied, “Of course.” But did I really know what “not okay” felt like? Apparently not, because late one night I would call my daughter and tell her I was having a heart attack and that I need to go to the ER. The difficulty breathing, the tightness in my chest, the haziness. Four hours…
