I. LOVE. A. ROUTINE. In fact I don’t think I could have survived 14 years in morning TV without a routine. I definitely thrive with some order but have, over the last few years, relaxed a bit so I could really FEEL life and have some spontaneity and presence too. THAT was one thing missing.…

Summer is here! Well, the unofficial start to summer that is but if you live in the desert like me, anything over 100 degrees warrants the start of summer. May and June in the valley of the sun aren’t the worst but as soon as late June rolls around and we push into July and…
