Wildfires in Western Kansas

Dad has called three times today. “If you want a story…,” he begins. He tells me about the people traveling toward them to deliver much-needed supplies for the surviving cattle and ranches. Hay, milk for calves, fence posts. The list goes on. The latest group, in particular, is leading a convoy from Michigan and Ohio. Today, he’s unloaded at least three …

M&K Food Reset – Week #1 Recap

Here’s the thing you can’t possibly plan for when deciding to start the reset 3 days before Thanksgiving: not having sugar. Period. In week 1, I followed the reset to a T. Every meal, snacks when needed, 100+ ounces of water a day, Kombucha, ginger tea — you name it, I ate it. In the prep, though, I couldn’t find …

M&K Food Reset – Day #1

The first day was far from brutal. Despite having my first meeting of the day at 7:45 a.m. and continuing that trend through the entire afternoon – it was still far from brutal.

Planning to Start the M&K Food Reset Three Days Before Thanksgiving (No Joke.)

In a flurry of insanity and crazed motivation, I decided to start the M&K Reset. …Monday. You know, the same Monday that falls right before the Thanksgiving after an election, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, my second family’s Xmas and Cyber Monday? Yea. That Monday. Here’s the thing: I’m done putting it off “until next Monday.” I constantly say “eh, …

Creating Easy Charts with Chartwell

Ogilvy makes another audio appearance in our latest video for using Chartwell in InDesign CC. Apparently, my big furry beast gets really excited about creating easy charts with Chartwell. I can’t say that I blame him. I’ve struggled with designing charts, tables and infographics in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for years. The process is always long and cumbersome and — …
