Did you ever hear Hilary Rodham Clinton say, “it takes a village”? She was referring to raising children but I would argue that it applies to everyone. Humans are meant to support each other and to live among other humans. We aren’t born alone and we depend on other humans to keep us alive in…

Think That Drink Isn’t Affecting You? Think Again

By Karen | March 27, 2022 |

Is it my imagination or is there a lot of marketing for alcohol directed at women? For generations, we’ve glamorized drinking in general as a way to unwind, be social and just live our lives. When I was growing up, an evening cocktail or two, or three, was normal. Now, it seems that wine is…
