Work/Life Balance Strategy: Disconnect to Clear Your Brain’s Cache

Work/Life Balance Strategy: Disconnect to Clear Your Brain’s Cache

This fall I have made it a mission to experiment with work/life balance and find easy, repeatable strategies that make the work and life function in tandem rather than in opposition. I'll be blogging about these as I discover them - here's strategy number one.

Cherry Blossoms and Solo Travel

Cherry Blossoms and Solo Travel

Nestled on the University of Washington campus, surrounded by Victorian buildings you'd sooner expect to find in England than in the Pacific Northwest, are dozens of Sakura trees which, for a few special weeks each spring, burst into bloom with magnificent pink blossoms.

Gemy Gown at Sunrise

Gemy Gown at Sunrise

Good morning, Techies! This photoshoot is one I'd been wanting to do for a while, as I have this gorgeous Gemy gown in my closet but hardly any photographs of it. I love the intricacy of the beading on the top and the way the pleats of the skirt move like waves as I walk. [...]
