I'm spoiled and I know it. I sat and watched my small girl play softball tonight. She pitched for the very first time. She was nervous. And by 'nervous', I do mean scared out of her … [Read More...]
I'm laughing. And crying. The universe has a way of pulling you up short, slapping you in the face and saying 'pay attention, would-ya?' when you simply aren't. Today is one of those days. … [Read More...]
I sat in the dark, in the mist and I listened. To tales of motherhood. To the heartache, to the loss, to the joy, to the triumph. I listened as each women, each friend, stood in front of us … [Read More...]
Tuesday was a good day. It fact, it was an amazing, extraordinary day. I could feel energy and connection in the room. And you know what else? SUPPORT. I have long been a proponent of moms … [Read More...]
As the car pulled in, I could see that her light was on. My small girl has this glorious window seat on the second floor of the house that looks out to the world. When we built the house, I could … [Read More...]
"Danielle, I don't know anyone who could possibly get away with traveling as much as you do...." She continued, "You realize, when we commit to staying home with our children, we are supposed to … [Read More...]
I have moved more than 20 times in my life. I was not one of those kids who lived in the same home most of their life. I didn't even live in the same city or go to the same school. But as I've … [Read More...]
The question felt a bit out of left field. But as the mother of a child, of a little girl, I suppose I shouldn't ever really be surprised, right? She is eight-going-on-twenty-eight, after all. … [Read More...]
My small girl has a cough. Again. And it is brutal. She has no other symptoms. But the cough is non-stop. As I sit at my desk now on Monday morning, I fear she is struggling in her classroom, … [Read More...]

I’ve decided I’m actually getting a *little* better at doing my hair. I think by now you know I’ve always been a bit lazy about styling it. In pictures you often see me with my hair all down. That is mainly because I’ve never truly known what else to do with it. But, I’ve been practicing and learning. Keeping up with new styles has turned out to be a ton of fun and I love the opportunity to pass on my new found loves and passions to you.
Now for one that is SUPER easy and will literally only take you minutes to do and you can wear it to work or just out and about: a fancy ponytail twist.
So, what do you think? Easy, right? Any styles you love to do? I would love to know.
This video is part of my weekly ‘Keeping Style in Your Life’ Series… a new one comes out every Monday. For past videos, see below.
This video was shot and edited by my good friends at Pounds Media.
Mother’s Day is supposed to be this glorious celebration of the women who love us, guide us and nurture us in the most beautiful ways. It is a day to say, ‘I love you’, ‘I’m thinking about you’ and ‘You matter to me’. Naturally, like many days of this kind, Mother’s Day has become very commercialized and quite expensive. Your mom isn’t looking for you to spend a fortune on her.
She just wants to know she matters to you.
And what better way to show her you care than by creating something for her.
I love to give flowers, but know they can be a pricey endeavor. Instead of heading to the florist and spending a lot… why not create your own, adding your own special touch?
For this weeks, Keeping Style in Your Life Video, here are two ways to inexpensively create DIY Flower Arrangements for Mother’s Day (or any special occasion for that matter!)
