  1. Father's Day

    Father's Day

    Father’s Day isn’t the easiest day to celebrate when you have lost your dad, although these days, some of my sadness is replaced by being able to celebrate my favorite dad, Troy Haley, who surprises me every day with how deeply he loves his daughters. Still, the day makes me think of my dad and what struck me this year is something that he said to me in the early days of his illness. For those who don’t know, my father had brain cancer and because every square inch of...

  2. Photo Shoot

    Photo Shoot

    Photo shoots are exciting and we have been busy getting ready for ours diet pills for weight loss. It’s our second shoot and we can’t help but reflect back on this past year and how far our little company has come. A year ago, we had a bag full of samples, a logo and a general idea of how we were going to go talk about our brand. The day of our shoot, it all came together so beautifully that we knew we were on to something special. And that...

  3. Memorial Day

    Memorial Day

    Memorial Day is never an easy day for a veteran who has seen the horrible outcome that war brings. The memories of lost souls who never had the chance to breathe American air again, taken from this earth too young and too soon. Many veterans will spend a quiet moment in a cemetery visiting a white headstone with the name of the soldier, sailor, airman or marine who was lost in some distant land far away. The veteran can be seen on bended knee, often wiping away a tear, saying...

  5. Jackson and the Appendectomy

    Jackson and the Appendectomy

    Last Sunday, I had to say goodbye to my cat, Jackson, who was more than just my cat. He was my sweet love and my first baby. He died at home peacefully, surrounded by love. And our hearts broke open wide. Less than an hour later, I was doubled over in pain. And not the kind of pain that comes from a broken heart, but the kind of pain that indicates it’s time for a trip to the emergency room. Which is exactly where we headed. My appendix was inflamed...

  6. Siblings

    Siblings

    Today is National Sibling Day and we’re taking a moment to reflect on the joys (and un-joys) of having a sibling. For those of us who grew up sharing their parent’s time and attention – not to mention personal space – you know that it can be rough going at times. But, in nearly every case, siblings grow up to be the people you cherish most in the world. It turns out all that sharing leads to a deeper level of understanding. And, some great stories about the battles we...

  7. Fresh Starts

    Fresh Starts

    This past week has been all about fresh starts for us. Spring is finally here (on the calendar if not in the weather forecast) and our team is preparing to move to a bigger, more private office space. We can feel the Zen in the air! And while it feels great to have a fresh start, it means you are leaving something behind. In the case of Spring, we are ready to shed the brutal cold, storms and heavy layers that Winter dictated. As for our current shared office space...

  8. You Are Perfect To Me

    You Are Perfect To Me

    I recently noticed my son was in a bit of a funk. Schoolwork has been getting more intense and social situations are getting trickier to navigate. So when I saw a magnet in the store that read, You Are Perfect To Me, I thought of him instantly. I purchased it and gave it to him that same night. The smile on his face was one I will never forget. The magnet hangs in his room, close to his bed so it’s the first thing he sees each morning and the...

  9. Busy is a Four-Letter Word

    Busy is a Four-Letter Word

    A few years back, there was an article in the New York Times titled The ‘Busy’ Trap. It spoke of a new social norm. Ask someone how they’re doing these days and you will likely hear, “Busy!” And not just “busy”, but all the descriptive variations of just how busy they are – “SO busy!” “CRAZY busy!!!” “INSANELY busy!!!!!” It reminds me of the Eskimo’s 50 words for snow (which by the way, means you have too much snow in your life.) When there are tiers of just how “busy”...

  10. Losing a Pet

    Losing a Pet

    Last week, we read a touching tribute from Robin Roberts who lost her Jack Russell Terrier, KJ, after 18 years. She spoke of companionship, unconditional love and joy. We get it. Our pets are part of our families. So, it should come as no surprise that we have had more than a few requests for photos of pets to be placed inside our lockets. And it’s wonderful to help people keep their furry loved ones close. “I'm grateful and blessed to have had her as long as I did. She...
