A “Behind The Scenes” Look At My Photo Shoot For MORE Magazine (at one of my most favorite places…)!

A huge thanks to MORE magazine for including my story in their “Against All Odds” piece in the February issue that’s on stands now!  When I was initially contacted about doing this piece for MORE magazine, I was, of course, elated since it would talk about one of my long-time favorite loves…running!

Officially Three Years Since My Last Bone Marrow Transplant—TODAY!

              Crazy, huh? Seems like another lifetime ago in many ways and yet the intensity of my gratitude today is unchanged, if not stronger, than it was then for our miracle and all those that helped make it happen. Although we each must be the ones who walk the […]

Merry Christmas! Did you know that Jesus was actually born in a cave??

I know, who knew, right?! This seemed a rather timely historical tidbit, so I thought I’d share. When I went to Jerusalem this summer I was shocked to find this out and to also learn that the Sea of Galilee is actually a lake.

I know it’s what we all expected, but I just never get tired of hearing it. :) You know my sister asked me, “Alyss, were you worried about this one??” And I told her “No, but it’s weird. I know […]

REAL SIMPLE Part II: My First Glittery New York Debut

It seems my fondness for the Big Apple goes way back to my New England youth.  Having been raised in rural Vermont, we would occasionally go into the city when my Dad had to attend business conferences.  One of these trips has become infamous in our family and probably a defining moment in my young […]

REAL SIMPLE Part I: “Pinch me…”

“Pinch me, I must be dreaming!” “OUCH!” “Nope, it must be true!!” The above is an exchange I had with my husband a little over a month ago after receiving an email from the folks at REAL SIMPLE Magazine asking if I would be willing to let them fly me up to New York City […]
