Remember going back to school as a child and being asked to write, "What I Did on My Summer Vacation?" As a child who loved to write more than talk, I always looked forward to that particular assignment and the opportunity to express myself on paper.

As we get older, our slowing metabolisms can make it harder and harder to stay thin. But the one thing that seems to get thinner without much effort is something we wish didn't: our hair.

I used to think that middle-age spread was something that happened to "other" people. That the words "spread" and "middle age" did not have to be synonymous with one another, just like the words "midlife" and "crisis" didn't have to be.
I thought I'd be one of the lucky ones, since I was a skinny kid.
Wrong: The waistline is simply not what it used to be. Neither is the weight. Especially after menopause.

Lately, I've been thinking about what makes us feel happy. Maybe it's because it's summer—something that has always made me unequivocally happy—and right now, I'm not feeling that familiar adrenaline-fueled kind of happiness.
Really, when you think about it, that's perfectly normal, isn't it? I mean, how can one thing—summer—erase all the other so-called stresses that enter our lives?

It's a common scenario: It's after-hours or a weekend and you need to see your doctor. But the office is closed.
Or it's flu season and you can't get an appointment to see your doctor for two weeks.
Maybe you're out of town and don't have access to your regular physician. Or you don't have your own physician.
It's not exactly an emergency—your throat is scratchy and sore—but you don't want to wait to see your doctor.

Each summer for the past nine years, I either hop on a plane or train and travel into the blogosphere to attend the BlogHer Conference. It's an enlightening experience being around so many brilliant and inspiring women.
