Gifts That Suit The Crazy Year We’ve All Had

By Wendy Kelley | December 1, 2021

I don’t always feel creative, but this year I’ve been brainstorming some exciting, experience-style gifts for the people I love. Yeah we always want to find the perfect gift, but after the crazy year that everyone has had I think we might be needing something a bit different. Here’s what I’ve got so far in…

What a 120 Year Old Bottle of Wine Taught Me About Making Time

By Wendy Kelley | March 25, 2021

This week my cousins and I headed to Naples for cooking lessons from my Aunt Lacey, some Florida sunshine, and quality time with two of the most interesting human beings around. My Aunt Lacey, who spent her career in the foreign service and has lived all over the world seems to have all the best…

Why Adults are Bad Learners

By Wendy Kelley | March 8, 2021

For those of us with a “grown up” day job, it’s easy to feel like our exploratory years are behind us. At least while we’re in the middle of the 9-5 routine, taking time out to learn something new — just for the pleasure of it — sounds like a luxury. We may even be…

Stop Waiting to Celebrate

By Wendy Kelley | February 24, 2021

At the end of February there’s an unofficial holiday called “Open That Bottle Night.” On the last Saturday in February, it prompts you to take out that bottle of wine you’ve been saving and enjoy it. No more excuses, no more waiting. Celebrate NOW, not later. I think we put a lot of things off.…

Takeaways From (Not) Reading JOY AT WORK

By Wendy Kelley | December 15, 2020

Usually when I share insights from a book, it’s one I’ve read. But you know how sometimes the stack of books on the night stand gets too high? Well that has been me lately. Lucky for me, I have a friend who shared some pretty useful insights with me from her reading time. Even just…

3 Ways to Show Up This Year

By Wendy Kelley | November 23, 2020

I’ve been thinking we all could use more of a personal touch this holiday season. With the necessary isolation that has interrupted a lot of our normal rhythms this year, it seems like we need more than ever to know that the people in our lives actually care. When it comes to business communications, what…

Election Recovery: 3 Things To Do

By Wendy Kelley | November 3, 2020

Here in the US, it’s voting day. But no. This is not a last-ditch effort on my part to encourage you to vote one way or another. I’m thinking about how we need to greet tomorrow. It really seems like this election season has been somehow even more exhausting than usual. True, high-stress times and…

Tell The Story

By Wendy Kelley | October 27, 2020

Have you ever noticed how hearing the story behind a name tells you so much more than the name on its own? It’s not quite what Shakespeare meant when he said “what’s in a name?” Still, there’s nothing like a story to inspire us. It can be silly things, like the name of a wine…

The $500 Hairdryer

By Wendy Kelley | October 7, 2020

My friend Mandy told me about this super amazing hairdryer. (Hang in there guys…this isn’t a girly post, I promise.) See, Mandy told me all about it because she loves this hairdryer and loves the way it makes her (and her hair) look and feel! And, who doesn’t want to feel amazing, right? My friend…

Is it right to ask for help?

By Wendy Kelley | September 1, 2020

It almost seems wrong to reach out for help, when so many people are in need. For families like mine, not devastated by the pandemic, or bereaved by the loss of family members to COVID, we certainly have more to be grateful for than can be adequately expressed. And yet even in this world full…
