In 2003 my husband and I moved to China. We lived in Beijing for two years.
Not a lengthy amount of time – certainly not long enough for me to claim expert status on Chinese people or their customs – but just long enough for me to accumulate lots of stuff. If you’ve ever lived overseas you probably know what I’m talking about. While shopping in fantastic open-air markets, quite often a small, very persistent and somewhat annoying voice whispers in your ear: “You may never… Continue

The media has done a pretty good job making sure EVERYONE knows that chocolate might be good for you. It’s hard to find a women’s magazine that hasn’t promoted this message, particularly this time of year when Valentine’s Day sends chocolate sales…

My friend left work today, excited because she was heading straight to her new gym. For a few minutes I was envious. She would, after all, get to work out without small companions who make comments like, "Look, mom, I can stretch, too! I can stretch more than you!!" and "Wow, mom! Look how much the Wii says you weigh!!"
But then I looked outside and saw it was snowing. Again. My motivation left as quickly as it had arrived. Don't get me wrong. I want to be fit. I want sculpted arms… Continue

Sure you say the holidays are over so why is family coming into town now, well I guess that's just how we roll in our family. So today I will be having 7 relatives coming in before lunch time. Yes, I can see your eyes bugging out of your head right now. Don't worry I did the same thing.
Dont get me wrong I love my family and am very excited to see them. Some of them haven't met Liam yet, that's how long it has been. It's just that it's a lot of things happening with a lot of people… Continue

One of the things that drives me insane about the psoriasis is what it's
doing to my scalp. My head is always dry and tight and when my hair is
down, it feels heavy. As if it's about to fall off by the root. When I
turn my head, and my hair sways, I feel like strands of my hair is being
pulled out. This is one of the reasons I've been keeping my hair in a
bun for so many months. I've try the dermatologist prescribed stuff,
Clobex Shampoo, 4 oz bottle,… Continue

I had the privilege of listening to (and even speaking briefly with) Mark Blumenthal, the founder and Executive Director of the American Botanical Council. Mr. Blumenthal reviewed the recent clinical and epidemiological research regarding the health benefits of tea.
It is truly staggering, the increasing amount of research being devoted to the connection between tea drinking and good health. And it is difficult to ignore the daily reports about tea’s potential. Of course, as Mr.… Continue

We talked some time ago about the physical health benefits resulting from daily tea drinking. Regular doses of antioxidants, as well as increased hydration and alertness, are just a few of those benefits. But tea has an experiential component that benefits mental health as well. A few moments taken to sit, sip and contemplate will give your poor, overcrowded brain a rest!
Easier said than done, right? Well, here’s an idea from our fellow Chai Babies out there. Claim one ritual for… Continue
