    If you’re going away this summer, it’s possible that you’re already creating lists of the holiday essentials that you need to pack. You’ve probably already thought about your sunscreen, your swimsuit and all your toiletries, but have you considered what you’re going to do while you’re away? Unless you’re filling all of your time climbing mountains or doing water sports, it’s likely that you’re going to have a lot of down time that you could fill by getting lost within a good book. For ultimate relaxation, there is really nothing better than spending an afternoon lounging by…

    Hi! We're back from Germany! And actually have been for a few days now. The trip was amazing, and I will post all about it, with photos, and also potentially some thoughts about things that Germany does better and worse than the U.S., once I collect myself, but in the meantime, I'm here to say that hi! Jet lag with kids? SUCKS.There's an eight-hour time difference between Denver and Germany, and eight hours is a LOT. The jet lag when we got to Germany was actually fine. The trip over was not easy (thanks primarily to Annika's plane barf habit), but both kids did end up sleeping 5-6 hours on…

    Because someone enjoys great photography does not mean that they can simply buy a camera and begin to produce great work. Photography is not only a talent, but it is also a skill. This means that even people that have talent will also have to work very hard to become good at the profession. Photography is like any other art, and very few people are artist. Still fewer people are able to make a living at photography even in a technical aspect. Famous photographers are few and far between. Because of these poor statistics, it is important that people pursue photography because they enjoy the…

Here are a few of the books that I loved this month:   A Lady’s Revenge by Tracey Devlyn I am a real sucker for a cliche spy romance novel and this one was everything I wanted it to be. There was witty dialogue, just enough mystery that I wasn’t totally sure who the bad guy was from the beginning, and enough romance to be sweet. I really enjoyed…

    Universities are under a constant attack from the media. Like vultures trying to peck a man to death for sustenance, tabloids circle campuses and comment on everything from controversial guest speakers, freedom of speech, teaching standards and tuition fees. The media is the hector at the side lines, shouting about any and all things education related – and they’re beginning to have a point. Universities are set to be charging £10,000 a year for education by the end of the decade, effectively forcing financially disadvantaged students out of the system entirely. Added to this is…

    by Aleda Schaffer, a strategic partnerships manager at American Airlines Launching a startup can be expensive. Many entrepreneurs take DIY to the extreme and would rather go broke than seek help. But there’s a highly underutilized option out there that could provide valuable products and services to startups and allow entrepreneurs to invest those resources in other areas of growth for their companies: a corporate sponsorship. Many corporations are actively searching for opportunities to join forces with startups. In 2013, for example, IBM set out to expand its cloud business. It shopped…

While The Donald continues to make headlines for his aggressive campaign to clinch the GOP nomination in the race to the White House, politics aside, it’s easy to see why Trump is a natural born leader and huge business success. Trump’s thought process, attitude and no holds barred style is a learning lesson for everyone in business.  Here are five examples: Supreme confidence. A great word to…

    So, Callum has asthma, kind of, maybe. This is something we've known about for a long time... his sensitive lungs first made an appearance right before he turned one with his first case of bronchiolitis, and then again later that same year with his second case of bronchiolitis, which was when we first obtained an inhaler for him. At the time we were only using albuterol, which is acute treatment for asthma symptoms that are currently occurring such as wheezing, coughing, etc. (often called a rescue inhaler), and I actually don't remember at what point we added in the second inhaler, Qvar,…

    Composition is the reigning artistic element in photography. In a basic sense, it is simply lining up a picture correctly. However, correct composition has been debated throughout the history of art. In artistic composition there is a theory that asserts a perfect composition, and it reigns true in most cases. In its simplest form, it simply states that the focal point of works of art should not be located directly in the center of the composition. This is not pleasing aesthetically, but minutely off center to either side makes for more of a pleasing balanced composition. Artistic Law This is…

    One of the largest emotional draws to photography without people as a subject in general is the ability to demonstrate emotion and personality from inanimate objects. This is especially true in architectural photography. It is almost the opposite of landscape photography only in that the subjects are man-made in architectural photography. Additionally, the architects design the buildings to photograph well and to obviously be appealing to the eye. However, the essence of their internal spirit is visible in the manner in which the architects manipulated their media. How? Great architectural…

    Photographers that shoot in black and white are very reluctant to use any type of technology to produce black and white photographs from any digital sources. However, there is photo editing software that is dedicated to transforming color formats to black and white. Still, there is even a debate about how much editing delegitimizes the entire digital format, but in particular black and white photography. This debate is further exacerbated because often turning photos into black and white is a method by which some photographers rescue unsuccessful color photographs. It is the reason that this…

On the web this most commonly takes the form of sponsored content. On the one hand, native advertising can seem deceiving simply because the content is not organic and is only tailored for that audience to feel organic. On the other hand, it’s a step in the right direction from all the interruption marketing that dominates the web. However, as we shift into a more consumer driven, on…

    One of our students emailed me this question after I posted a sad status update on Facebook: How does a guy who seems to have everything he wants get in a dip? You have done such great things for other people, I feel you shouldn’t be sad. Here was my response: First — the idea that I’ve “done such great things for other people” is simply your perception. You could say that about anyone. But that’s just a minor detail… More importantly, let’s talk about sadness.

In practice, SEO (search engine optimization) has been used to describe practices to improve a website’s search rankings (originally primarily using keywords in titles and metadata but more and more having quality content, fast-loading pages, well-formatted URLS, quality links to your site, etc).

    First, thank you everyone so much for your comments on my last post. Usually by now, I’d have taken some time to go through and respond, but every time I sit down to do it, I’m just not prepared to do it. I read all the comments and really appreciate the support for us and for Brinkley. I especially appreciate people who took the time to document their own experiences, and those who talked about what had/hadn’t worked with their own children and what to expect in that area. No extended preamble. I’ve talked about this before, I know I have, because of course I…

And all the other parts of a massage that seemed really awkward and distressing to me before I had one. I got more and more worked up about it as it approached, but I ended up going through with it. As I consider myself to be the most average person on Earth, I assume there are plenty of other people who have never had a massage or have massage-related first-worldy anxiety. Once it was over, I decided to lay it all…

    Like most of you, I’m pretty serious about car seats and their safe use. Putting your child in the car is absolutely the most dangerous thing you do every day, and hopefully the most dangerous thing they encounter in their entire lives, for the sake of my nerves and sanity. It absolutely is dangerous for a child to be in the car. They are much more likely to be injured or killed in your car than anywhere else. Car seats do an incredible amount to mitigate potential damage, but they must be used correctly. These are facts. You can’t argue with them. Well, you can, but you’d…

Where I no longer battle with the idea that I’m totally unqualified to do anything related to this industry – I know I’m unqualified.

    Every now and then I read a book that makes my life better. A book that shifts my thinking and affects my actions. Mindless Eating was one of those books. It did, as promised, absolutely change the way I think about eating. I stumbled upon it on my Overdrive app and listened to the audiobook. The basic premise of the book is to use mindless eating in your favor by not having to think about healthy eating so much. It flips the idea of mindless eating on its head – instead of adding unhealthy calories without thinking, reduce or add healthy food without thinking much about it.

    Earlier this year, I signed up for the Atlanta Track Club.  It was like $25 or something like that, you got a free hat, and you had guaranteed entry into the Peachtree Road Race.  That was enough for me.What I later learned and has earned my money's worth, is that the track club puts on a lot of races that are free for members.  I love free things.  Don't remind me that I paid for entry earlier this year.  The races are still free!So when I found out a bunch of my friends were doing the Decatur Dekalb 4-Miler race on Saturday the 18th, when I saw it was a free race I…

    So, for the past three years there has been something that I have never written about or even mentioned on this blog before.  Yet, it is something that has been a big issue in my life.  It is something that has honestly, been one of the biggest challenges in my life and I've never mentioned it before.  I've been too insecure.  Too scared.  Too embarrassed.  And it's been too emotional for me to ever write about and open up about.  No, it's not my hunt for prince charming (although, real life, where is he?) but it is my struggle with the skin condition…

I ended up bringing in this:Big Wheel bike Because around the time I was 3 or 4 years old, I made my parents amused and proud when I was riding my Big Wheel down the street in my original home state of Washington and I chose to turn around in the driveway in front of a retirement home.

    The Mills House Wyndham Grand is quintessentially Charleston.  With it’s beautiful pink walls, gas lamps and trickling fountain, it seems to invite you in from the street. It seems to be from another time, and you just want to come and stay for awhile.  The interior of the hotel is even prettier, but far more modern- with brighter colors, rich tapestries and comfortable places to sit and stay for awhile. Being on the corner of Meeting and Queen, just a stone’s throw from King Street, the colorful accommodations were fit for royals. I think the pictures will speak for themselves.

       There’s nothing quite like the decadence of indulging in a daydream where you are powerful, beautiful, resisting someone’s shitty offer, singing the most beautiful song in front of everyone you admire or just simply walking away. I fantasize about my strong self often–the parts of me that could resist short lived temptations, the parts that are brave, the inner self that is hungry for intense self expression. When I break out of the daydream, I’m rarely disappointed. I usually feel a creative surge. Sometimes I put on a new outfit and take a picture of…

  • Cute self care for cute people with cute mental health problems

       Self care is any intentional activity that self-nurtures. Self care is the mental health cure all of today as hempseed, goji berry, and spirulina were of 2010. Self care is often on checklists of health care professionals– “Have you been practicing your self care activities like we had talked about?” Self care is for people who neglect their own needs and desires. Self care is for busy parents and employed people and stressed out people who aren’t depressed or chronically anxious or paranoid or chronically ill– we think about ourselves a lot.

      69 almost makes a yin-yang. Neat! Guys, 69ing is just awkward. Like, where does it even come from? Apparently it is first mentioned in 1790 in French “whore catechisms”.  I think it’s really strange to think that in order to keep our sex lives interesting, we might assume that we need to move our bodies into strange positions. Like wheelbarrow, or any position standing up, or even worse, standing up in the shower. Danger. Slippery when wet. 69ing is a novelty position. It’s like you’re on your way to a great birthday party with beautiful homemade…

For those of you who may not be familiar with the haiku, it’s a short poem made up of 17 syllables in three lines. Typically described as a mood or nature poem. Now, while I’m not a fan of structured poetry, other than reading it, haiku’s were always my favorite. Courtney Symon’s agrees and she wrote one haiku everyday for 100 days. Then she wrote a quirky and insightful piece about it. Following the 100 Day Project Symon’s…

I was already there, tenderly referring to it as rock bottom. This metaphoric “bottom” has many definitions based on individual experiences. And there are many different paths. Mine happened to be a snarled mess of loss, heartbreak, displacement, and confusion. Unfortunately I’ve been here for a long time and it has been the most difficult task of clawing my way out.
