Today is the Boston Marathon. You know that by now, right? Well, I’m obsessed. I wish I could be in Boston today cheering on all of the amazing, inspiring runners. I never thought twice about the Boston Marathon until this […]

Good morning! It’s a lovely misty but warm morning in New York City and I’m feeling good going into a new week. Well. That’s kind of a lie. I’m still feeling sick, actually, and I’ve taken cold medicine and allergy […]
