95/100: Be Here

95/100 || Music, drinks, and a good friend – all together on the rooftop of the Museum of Contemporary Art makes for a playful evening! It was just the epitome of a summer evening, and it felt so lovely to just allow myself to enjoy being in that very spot. MCA was even kind enough to place a sign right in front of me, to remind me that just being exactly where you are is … CONTINUE READING

94/100: Be Grateful

94/100 || Day 94’s play started bright and early with my monthly Networking & Mindfulness meeting! The lovelies, Melissa Markle and Lauren DeFilippo, put the group together and it includes 9 other women who are working to live the life they most want for themselves. What I love most about this group is that we get the chance to share our successes and challenges with each other each month, and it is such a highlight … CONTINUE READING

93/100: Be Alive

93/100 || My playfulness for Day 93 was getting the chance to catch up with a friend who I had not seen in years. In the midst of all the craziness of planning for the upcoming “The Being of a Nation” road trip, it could be very easy to convince myself that I don’t have time to have an ice tea in the middle of the day. But…that is exactly why I think it was … CONTINUE READING

92/100: Be Experimental

92/100 || 4th of July in my family was never quite complete without my grandmother’s potato salad, so it felt a little daunting when I was tasked with bringing it to dinner. I got the recipe from my mom (which was more like a list and some helpful tips because of course my g-ma never actually used a recipe) and was trying so hard to follow it to the tee and make it “just right.” … CONTINUE READING

91/100: Be Chillin’

91/100 || So…I’ve been pretty lousy about posting for The 100 Day Project, but I have been being playful every day. So, be prepared for a bunch of posts coming all at once as I catch up!! ⠀

Day 91 was a full day of play that included art, an amazing conversation with a weaver at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, and seeing Wonder Woman with two of my sisters. It all was lovely, … CONTINUE READING

90/100: Be Free

90/100 || Yesterday was a glorious day of play because I got to spend it with my niece, The Empress. It was the first time we spent the day together – just the two of us! We had four hours where we just got to hang and get to know one another a little better. Since she lives in CA these moments are few, but they are cherished. I loved just watching her. She was … CONTINUE READING

89/100: Be Present

89/100 || Dominoes!!! A game that’s been played in my family for generations! My grandparents used to play with their parents and so we grew up playing it with them. The tradition carries on to this day, and I look forward to the day that we can teach my nieces how to play. One year for Christmas my grandfather gave me a set in which he hand-painted all the dots for me. It is one … CONTINUE READING

88/100: Be a Creator

88/100 || Friday’s play was playing hooky for a Friday Funday at the @seriesfest to support a friend who was a part of the team who created the drama pilot, “Down Home.” It is not often that you get to go to the movie theater in the middle of a weekday, which was fun in and of itself, but to get the chance to see something that your friend has helped to create made it … CONTINUE READING

87/100: Be Nostalgic

87/100 || I went to college in the mid-west, and to this day my time there stands out as four of my favorite years. They were years full of growth and crazy fun and learning that opened my eyes and was paramount to where I am today. So, when I am lucky enough to be together with other Wooster Alumni it is not hard to find myself a tad nostalgic about the time spent there. … CONTINUE READING

In two weeks, I will be taking Chapter Be on the road to interview people across America for “The Being of a Nation.” Chapter Be aims to switch the question from “What do you … CONTINUE READING
