So I’m back from Turks & Caicos. I’m not happy about it. For the past four days, I spent every morning following a very strict routine — gym, breakfast buffet, beach, beach, nap, beach, strawberry daiquiris — and I’m less […]

That’s right. At this time tomorrow, I’ll be on a plane headed to sunny (it had better be sunny there, or I will be so pissed), tropical Turks & Caicos. And with that, let’s kick off today’s edition of Thankful […]

The Weekend That Taught Me How To Prioritize
