December is always my favorite month but also the busiest for work. Finding balance can be a challenge sometimes, but this year I’ve teamed up with Volvo Car USA. If you read my post here then you know between recipe testing, writing, shooting and editing I’m taking a breath and practicing the art of slow living between the mad rush of life and the holidays.
Not that I need a reminder, but a little nudge from my boys and one of the safest cars isn’t so bad, right? By reminders I mean my boys telling me things don’t need to be perfect and Volvo’s XC90 gently bumping me back to the center of the lane if I inadvertently drift from a lack of focus. So between running around from work to carpool to shuffling kids from sports to music, I’m savoring the quiet moments. The moments when my boys get to be boys—not little athletes, or practicing musicians or classroom students—just care-free time that, as we all know, passes way too quickly.
