I love my dog Sparky - I adopted her 5 years ago. She's my lap warmer and exercise buddy. She's so sweet. Studies show that dog owners are healthier than non-owners. They walk more. I've walked more since I got Sparky. So, think about adopting a dog.

5 Love Languages




Dr. Gary Chapman’s book list 5 ways to express love

1.       Verbal  affirmation

2.       Quality time

3.        Gifts

4.       Acts of service

5.       Physical touch


This Valentine’s Day, determine the main way you express love and do more of it. Then try to show your love in other ways.  


I took an Acro-yoga class where the teachers emphasized good communication and trusting the partner to accomplish each pose. It was a great way to practice the verbal love language by saying “good job”, “you’ve got it”, etc. The whole class was based on physical touch.  It was challenging and fun. If you haven’t tried acro-yoga, do so.

Healthy Lunch



I have been bringing lunch to work for over a decade and I like variety. I also have some favorites. I love Chinese chicken and cucumber salad. I also love Miracle Noodle, a gluten-free, low calorie alternative. They are easy to make and taste great. My favorite is the Pho flavor. I'll definitely get more.

Try some
