The Skinny on

The Skinny on White Christmas

Who would have thought that a Bing Crosby movie could have such an impact on my body image? One of my favorite movies – no matter what time of year – is White Christmas, and it has been since I was young. Every July I pulled the tape (yes, tape) out of its flimsy cardboard […]

The Leadership Lie – Life with a Tiny Tyrant

Call Your Daughters Leaders… …Unless of Course they are Actually Being Bossy! I am so tired of the articles – spawned I think in part by the book Lean-In – that attempts to banish the word bossy in regards to little girls.  In fact, there is a whole movement and a website by the same […]
