It’s a snow day in upstate New York. My awesome husband Daniel has all six kiddos out on a snowplowing adventure, and you know what that means—at warp speed, the following scenario:


  1. Kris Carr’s green juice, lifeyum-style (celery, cucumber, kale, spinach, green apples and three key limes) in a big wine glass.
  2. Comfy chair with pillow by window (building a fire next).
  3. Great book.


The house is silent, except for the hum of the forced hot air and the little house sounds always present. No whining, no worries. I’m not touching the dirty dishes or sweeping the cheerios and who knows what else off the floor. Just taking these glorious moments to sit, sip, read, breathe, and love this wonderful life.
