lunch at gypsy den restaurant & becoming an introvert

  In this holiday season, I am choosing to be very protective of my time. Well, actually, this has been my theme all year. I don’t want to be soooo busy that I become exhausted. It’s so easy to get caught in everyone else’s busyness, that you really have to recognize when it’s time to […]

Lemonade at Fashion Island, Newport Beach

It’s a rare treat to be able to step out and enjoy my lunch outside of work. Most days, I pack  my lunch and will do a working lunch or take thirty minute break outside of my office. I get really happy when I find a healthy, not too expensive and quick & convenient place […]

That’s Amore

600 miles and 24 hours later, I am home sweet home. I don’t know when I’ve felt more tired, driving solo for 4 hours or the morning after a long race? 4 hours is the longest time I have ever been driven straight and I did it twice in the last 24 hours.  I did the […]
