What’d you get up to this week, friends? I spent some time on Lake of The Isles (which I’d never done, despite living in Minneapolis for eight years), did some one-on-one coaching with a long-time client, and today we’re hosting a mini family reunion. Here’s hoping everyone impressed by our snowcone maker!

What’d you get up to this week, friends? I hosted a buddy for lunch, did some in-person coaching (my favorite!), and right now I’m in my hometown attending my 20-year high school reunion (!!!).

I try really hard to only use beauty products that aren’t tested on animals. I constantly get questions about my eyebrows and they come compliments of this $7 eyebrow pencil. No bunnies were harmed in the process!

An extremely mellow Netflix show that may sooth our wearied nerves.
Fascinating! An interview with a woman who helps celebrities manage their money (and a great reminder that EVERYONE suffers from the comparison trap!)
I don’t want to blame anything on the Kardashians, but the pressure to emulate that lifestyle is infectious, and some of my clients don’t realize that other celebrities are getting a lot of stuff for free. There are celebrities who get paid to be courtside at basketball games, $25,000 or $50,000 just to sit there for two hours.
And not only that, they’ll get an entire box of designer clothes shipped to their house so they can pick out what to wear, for free. It’s impossible to keep up with that, but it’s natural to want to. My clients experience the same social pressures that we all feel, in normal life, except for them it’s amplified and more public.

JUST AS I SUSPECTED! Writing A Book Did Not Change My Life.
It made me proud, yes, and it made me a little bit of money (less, trust me, always less than people imagine, especially when tax season comes around), but I am still the same messy, procrastinating, nervous, usually sad person I was before I completed what had, up until that point, been my lifelong dream.

Hope you had a lovely weekend, friends!
What’d you get up to this week, friends? We celebrated Independence Day the way the Lord intended: next to water, eating rippled potato chips with French Onion dip. This weekend, we took the boys up north to see my parents and we’re jumping off of docks, riding bikes, and generally living that #wholesomecountrylife.

How was your week, friends? I took myself on a DIY writing retreat, went to Minneapolis’s Families Belong Together march, and danced it up at a Kesha concert. Good times!

I thought this was sweet: Books Where the Dog Dies, Rewritten So the Dog Doesn’t Die
“Why would anyone buy a book about two people who get married and have a dog and are happy?”
“Well, the twist is, the dog is kind of a rascal,” I said. Marley smiled in his sleep. He was a very healthy dog who would live longer than me, though I didn’t know it yet.

How was your week, friends? Like most of you, I spent much of it glued to the news and on the phone with my elected officials. But I also made time for a friend’s 40th birthday party, coffee with friends, and a day at the beach. We have to fill our cup before we can pour from it, right?
