During the holidays, we are surrounded by delicious food and drinks and parties and it is so easy to over indulge. "Why not? It's the holidays!" we convincingly tell ourselves. The problem is, when we overdo it, not only do our pants get tighter, we're more lethargic, less productive and experien...
To celebrate the purchase of my first condo four years ago, my agent gave me a $50 gift certificate to a local tea shop and a plant for my closing gift.  I appreciated the gifts because my agent listened to me and my interests and purchased accordingly (she knew how much I love tea). It was very ...
Each year I fall victim to the dreariness of Seattle's dark and wet winter. I become lethargic, unmotivated and peckish (mostly for carbs). In winter, I need more sleep and ironically more caffeine to provide enough energy for the day. Then spring comes, and I am myself again! I appreciate brigh...
One day I'd love to live on a farm with my very own chickens, a fruit tree orchard and an organic garden. I'll live off the land, picking fresh wonderful produce from my garden for a snack or delicious gourmet meal. For now, I'm a healthyurbanite living in the city. Until my farm dream comes true...
After a lifetime of searching, I fell madly in love. Let me start from the beginning. I've spent the last several years looking for the perfect exercise match to fit my busy schedule and need for variety. The elliptical machine, treadmill, group classes (spinning, step aerobics, swimming, Zumba,...
For five years I worked in outside sales and spent half the month on the road.  A typical month included 1,500 miles behind the wheel and 5,000 miles in the air. Even though I was excelling in my field, I was constantly tired, sometimes moody and always craving sugar (I became wildly addicted to...
I spent last weekend at Bull Hill, a magical guest ranch in northeastern Washington State. I was introduced to Bull Hill a few years ago by a friend who has been visiting this real working cattle ranch (aka Dude Ranch) with his family for 13+ years. He raved about his love for this special place ...

You will feel renewed, alive, energetic and ready to take on the world. I've decided to author a blog dedicated to ...
A few weeks ago on one of Seattle's last hot summer days,  the ActiveRain team left the office early to play and celebrate. We began our Fun Friday with a surprise last minute BBQ on Jonathan Washburn's rooftop deck in the heart of downtown Seattle.  Along with enjoying sweeping views of the city...
    Kerry Park on West Highland Drive is my favorite Queen Anne park. Located in one of Seattle’s original neighborhoods, the park sits atop Queen Anne hill with stunning views of the Puget Sound. The drive is tree-lined with beautiful historic homes and a charming and distinctive feel. Joggers, ...
