If I had the power to impact the world in one way, it would 100% be to significantly increase the empathy that we have for one another. When I think about the vast differences that we have, empathy is the one characteristic that I think has the impact to foster a world of more compassion. […]

I gotta be real with you, hearing “corn chowder” doesn’t make my ears perk up. In fact, whenever I’d hear corn chowder I’d think “corn wtf?” Let’s just say it’s not my go-to meal, but this recipe has me rethinking that. First of all, I’m from the South – New Orleans to be exact. It’s […]

When Camille was a tiny nugget who could barely hold her head up, I must have read any book that I could get my hands on related to cognitive development. I knew that the first three years were crucial in terms of mental development. At this age, sleep is a huge factor in development and […]

Most people who truly know me would all agree that I’m a very dramatic person. I can see that, but seriously, something happened to my face the day that I turned 30. I got up to wash my face and when I looked into the mirror, I kid you not, I instantly looked older. Maybe […]

So at some point in my life, I genuinely thought that I was able to effectively and efficiently manage and master multiple tasks with laser accuracy in the same amount of time. When I break it down like that, it sounds soooooo crazy, however, so many of us take on multitasking ALL.THE.TIME. In essence, we’re […]

Few things can instantly transform a space like fresh flowers can. You probably already know how I feel about potted plants, but fresh flowers are different.
