5 Lessons In 5 Days Without Habits: BlogHer, Makeup, Haters

Stressed and unapologetic of my sour mood, I walked through the airport last week with an expression that surely screamed, "I'm a jerk! Don't come near me!". I was flying across the country on a red-eye after driving 2 hours from a family getaway that day. I spent the previous weekend tending to my kids while they played and Daddy D golfed. It was fun, but traveling with kids is always more work than anticipated.

Quitting Café When You’re Cuban: My First Drip Coffee Maker

Quitting Café When You’re Cuban: My First Drip Coffee Maker

Have you ever felt like making a change in a certain part of your life? That while the majority of other things were going well, one area needed a massive correction? That was me a few months ago with my nutrition - my water intake, specifically - and so, I made a course correction. I quit coffee. I'm Cuban and I quit coffee. To be Cuban and quit coffee feels completely unnatural. To explain this feeling, take into account that I was given café con leche as a kid... in a bottle. It's that serious. When I told my mom that I had put my American coffee maker in storage (Cubans drink espresso, … [Read more...]
