Here in Minnesota, it’s the peak of the fall colors. We are very proud of our beautifully colored fall leaves, so much so that we have a “Fall Color Finder” so you know where to go on your fall weekends to check out the best autumn leaves in the state. Right now,...
After 17 years of living in our home, we finally decided to repaint this year. We’ve done significant remodels to the inside of our home, but the outside was always “just fine.”
So this year we decided it was time for an exterior facelift. I went through the (literally) hundreds...
Full confession: the last few weeks have felt a bit more harried than usual, and even though I try to be a good role model in all things well-being (you know, “walking the talk” and all), sometimes I have to remind myself of the very things I speak and coach about.
This time of year...
Sometimes we all need a little boost, especially this time of year.
It seems like most people are dealing with a host of demands right now:
Welcoming new students or associates
Planning fall programming
Preparing for 2024 budgets
New billing years around the corner
Fall or annual...
Happy Tuesday! This is coming to you Tuesday morning (rather than the usual Monday morning jumpstart to your week) since yesterday was Labor Day, and I hoped you were offline enjoying time with family and friends during the long weekend.
My family hit the Minnesota State Fair as we do each...
In our home, there’s one more weekend before the start of the school year (Minnesota schools typically start after Labor Day; I know many of your schools are already back in session.)
That means a few more late nights watching our favorite streaming shows with our teenagers.
Happy Monday! I hope you had a terrific weekend!
It’s hard to believe that summer is basically over. Many of you with school-age kids have already taken your “first day of the new school year” pictures and put your kids on the bus for their first day of school.
After almost two weeks out of the office on a service and learning trip to El Salvador and Guatemala, I’m back!
I’ve got quite a bit of digging out to do (sorry if I owe you an email - I promise to get back to you as soon as I can!), but the treasure trove of memories I made over the...
Hello from Antigua, Guatemala!
I’m out of the country on a service and learning trip to El Salvador and a little tourist stop in Antigua, Guatemala.
It’s been an incredible trip with my husband and our two daughters. We’ve spent the last week building schools and improving...
Wow - how is it the last day of July? I can’t believe we are in the waning days of summer. It feels like it just started.
I had so many plans for things I was going to accomplish this summer.
I was going to:
- Have a clean, organized basement.
- Lose a few extra pounds that had crept on over...
Happy Self-Care Day!
You read that right - July 24 is Self-Care Day. Why July 24? Because self-care is important 24/7 (or 7/24).
What is self-care, and why is it so important for your health? “Self-care is not synonymous with self-indulgence or being selfish. Self-care...
Happy Monday! Our EsquireWell community continues to grow, and I'm so happy you are here!
It feels like summer is officially at least half over.
My birthday was yesterday, and when I was growing up, it always felt like once my birthday was over, the new school year was around the corner.
