How to Stay Creative

How to Stay Creative

  As a writer and a blogger, one of the things I struggle with is how to stay creative and generate ideas. Just ask my husband about how I wander the house declaring “I have nothing to say!” I get anxious when I am stuck – staring at a blank page, begging for brilliant ideas to […]

14 Things I Learned on Summer Vacation (+ Pictures)

Boats at Sunset

  As you read this, we’ll be on the road, driving back home to Brooklyn from Maine. We were lucky to spend two and a half weeks away from home. We had a chance to explore a couple of different parts of Maine. The first week, we rented a house near Wells Beach in Southern […]
