{Photo credit: Anna Ligocki Photography} “Throwback Thursday” – ugh! It’s even worse as a hashtag: #TBT. Looking at old photos of myself is a blunt reminder that any ounce of style or grace I now have was hard-earned.

Kid-Friendly, Mom-Approved Hidden Vegetable Smoothies

If you’re anything like me, then you’re always looking for new ways to get your kids to eat more fruits and vegetables. The reality is that most of our kids don’t get excited to eat a big plate of kale salad or roasted vegetables. Fruit is usually more acceptable but I still have clients tell me their kids don’t eat […]
