American Fun – Summer!

From playing on the beach to rides in my Mustang, summer is the time I love letting the wind rustle my hair, the sun hit my face, and screaming weeeeeeeee. May your summer be filled with sunshine, birds singing, gardens growing, and FUN. I’m going to pitch a tent in the backyard and roast smores. Let’s get out there and enjoy summer 2017!

Plant a Garden + Plant a Dream

Planting at Edgewater FarmEdgewater Farm is our saving grace from the cacophony and stress that comes with high-pressure careers in New York City. We work all week so we can race to the country and stick our hands in the dirt. We’ll spend this weekend planting more than 250 vegetables. Yep, that’s digging 250 holes! (And that’s after the horse manure and tilling.) Some might wonder, Why? Well, it’s cheaper than therapy and we get bushels of tomatoes! As Audrey Hepburn said, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” I’ll also add that in planting my garden, I plant a dinner party waiting to happen.

Spring has sprung. Get Hopping.

Spring wakes me up, gets me going, and tells me, “Anything is possible.” Every delicate sprout pushing its way upwards through the heavy weight of the ground above is proof that, with determination, we can all blossom. This is the month to plant seeds for summer fun. What’s the thing that makes you feel most alive? Do more of that this spring!

Bruce honored in SC

What a thrill it was for me to be back in South Carolina to accept the “Distinguished South Carolina Public School Graduate” award at the inaugural gala sponsored by the SC Association of School Administrators. The night was extra special for me. First, because my guest for the gala was Sarah “Miss Porter” Cloaninger, MY FIRST GRADE TEACHER! Second, the other 6 recipients included former Governor Dick Riley who had the vision to start the SC Governor’s School for the Arts, which I attended. To find out more about the awards, SCASA, and how you can contribute to a great public education, click here.

Bruce on Good Day New York

Good Day NY I had some fun on Good Day NY recently with Rosanna Scotto, Greg Kelly, and MSNBC’s Alison Stewart. (Check out her new book: JUNK.) We had ourselves a New York City street sale, raising money for charity. Rosanna wanted to know my #1 secret for buyers to get good deals at sales. That is, Wear your worst shoes! Why? If you’re dressed to the nines, you’re going to pay more. When you’re asking for a better price, sellers appraise what you’re wearing. The finer the stitch, the higher the price. And if you’re having a sale this year. Here’s a tip: Put up a rope line across your driveway and drop it when the sale starts. Buyers will be running to grab your stuff. Oh, and for other tips check this out and if you want to watch me find treasures. Here’s a Today show adventure I took.

My Unlicensed Marriage – A WINNER!

Happy to say that Moving In: Tales of an Unlicensed Marriage is a WINNER of the 5th annual “Living Now” book awards, celebrating must-read books that encourage better living. Moving In won the bronze award in the relationships & marriage category. I’ll take it! The award gives me street cred as I now try to convince Scott we need an indoor pool during phase 3 of our renovation! If you’re in a relationship, you’ll get a laugh out of this book. (Check out the reviews!)

Life 101 – Spring to Life

Spring is a time of rebirth and new life, so let me share one of Mother Teresa’s quotes about life:
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is a beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it.
And to that I’ll add a Life 101 thought from Brother Bruce: “Every new day is a chance to try harder, live better, dream bigger, and find a way to have a little fun.”

Bruce On Air with Ryan Seacrest

Ryan and Bruce You might have recently read on HuffingtonPost how Ryan Seacrest rescued me while I was skiing in Deer Valley. If not, read it here. OR take a listen to Ryan and me talking about it on his radio show today. It’s a painfully funny story. You gotta love that guy… not just because he saved me, but because he says I’m prettier than he is. Ha! Thanks Ryan for the memory.

Find things that make us laugh like these 100 funny pictures.
Seek out stories that show humanity at its best. Did you hear about the people in a NYC subway car who teamed up to wipe away anti-Semitic graffiti and Swastikas? It’s a great story of hand sanitizer, elbow grease and people coming together.
Find ways to share and feel more love. If you’ve never heard the Story Corps of Danny & Annie, WATCH & LISTEN. Your heart will grow three sizes.

New Year – New Opportunities

Dawn.  New Year's Day.  My terrace.  Tulum, Mexico

Dawn. New Year’s Day. My terrace. Tulum, Mexico

Each year, rather than resolutions, Scott and I write down our “goals” for the year. We read them aloud to each other and seal them in an envelope, which we tuck in our underwear drawer and open the following New Year’s Day. We’ve found the action inspires us and that often we get to most things on our list. (Though I still haven’t taken those Spanish lessons!) As we head into 2017, I wish you all good things. I’m reminded of a quote by the late great Joey Adams: “May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.”
It’s ’17. Go get ’em!
