Summer has not officially started, but the weather is hot and humid, the kids are out of school, and I have vacation on the brain. So much so, that I was thinking about the question that always seems to plague me right before leaving town: Do I commit to work during my travels or do I completely disconnect?
The article below, by author and businesswoman Arianna Huffington, explores this topic and provides some great suggestions. It also gets me thinking about how email has sadly morphed from a productivity tool to a technology that keeps us from being our most productive […]
I recently began taking pottery classes at a local shop down my street. It’s been a very fun, messy adventure that I’ve been doing as part of the roux ‘go look’ challenge (I speak a little about that challenge here).

When I was visiting NYC this past weekend, I went to a yoga class with a dear friend of mine. As we prepared our mats and settled in for the experience, we both waited anticipating what this experience would have in store. My mind was anxiously thinking about my rusty my downward facing dog pose and trying to remember if I put on deodorant. Regardless of those racing thoughts, I decided to just do my best and live presently in the moment.

As many of us eased into our new found roles as Philadelphia Eagles fans, the roux team was eager to cheer on our team and decide on the best 2018 Super Bowl commercials. The game did not disappoint as our (new) favorite team took the victory in an exciting and hard-fought match.
