I’ve been working on researching for an article I just finished for the Parentmap print magazine about global service trips for teens (stay tuned- it’s coming out later this month), which is why you haven’t seen me posting much lately.
But I finally have another post up about how to handle the stress of holiday/birthday giving. I wrote about this in the winter of 2011 but I have since added a few more details. I hope it helps to relieve the pressure of the holiday season especially.
I’m off this weekend to Europe to see my daughter play in a piano festival in Vienna, Austria! So there may be another silence, but I may just surprise you (and myself) if I can find the time to post something.
