Lean In Book Review

This is going to be a short one because I’m out of practice with writing and I just don’t have much to say about Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In. It’s a fine book, but it’s a bit difficult to translate into my particular life. I’m nowhere near in the same kind of position as Sandberg and…

She (IS) Allowed Her Voice

This morning I was browsing Instagram when I came across a post made by my fellow Bozeman social media friend, Hilary Parker. I’d already seen the post, but this time it was a comment below the post that caught my attention. The picture is of a graduate’s mortar board decorated with a photo of a white…

I Pity the Fool…

…who thinks I won’t accomplish something good this month. I’m not going to lie, I have some high hopes for April.

Will I knock at least one off the shelf pictured above? Most likely. There’s the possibility that this challenge will help spur…

I Should…

I should really learn to swim. My kids are becoming great swimmers, but I never really learned. I mean, I’m not in danger of drowning if I end up in the deep end of the hotel pool, but I also can’t promise that I won’t come up spluttering if my head accidentally goes under. I’ve…
