Enjoying Winter- Cold, Dark, and All

I have lived in New England for all of my adult life and quite a bit of my childhood.  Although I should be used to the return of cold weather, it always is jarring.  Not unexpected but just an unpleasant reminder that we live in the north.  The thing is that I am one of those people whose toes are perpetually cold. Even in the summer I need socks at night.  So, when the weather is at or below freezing for months, my body doesn't appreciate it.  So, with my general disdain for frigid weather, you would

PeKu News- December 2014

The entire month of December feels like a celebration to me. Between the assortment of holiday parties, the increased amount of baking, the multitude decorations, the sounds of Christmas music, and the holidays themselves, it feels like a non-stop party. At our house, the decorations came out the day after Thanksgiving.  I'm all for celebrating Thanksgiving as its own event, but once it has had its due, I like to make our house festive. So, our windows have candles and our year round tree has multi-colored lights among many other pieces of decor.

This month's work anniversaries are

As December begins, many people are filled with the stress of obligations looming. Taking the perfect picture(s) for the holiday card. Finding the right gifts for everyone on your list. Making time to bake beautifully crafted cookies. Scheduling all of the extra holiday events, parties, and more. While I can't reduce the number of places you need to be and the things you need to do, I can provide a few helpful hints.

Meet the Team- Joe Lawrence

This week's interviewee has been with PeKu since the very beginning with a little time off in the middle of his tenure. Joe Lawrence started writing for PeKu in July 2008. He wrote for us on a number of topics, including politics and parenting, until January 2011. At that point, he took a two and a half year hiatus to focus on his family and career. We were delighted when he returned in September 2013. Since that time he's been writing about fitness, and next month he will return to writing about parenting. I'll stop the intro

Some Projects Are Like Snow Globes

November saw great change to our editorial calendar. Eliminating eight publications will do that.  Along with the removal of tens of articles, I also made some small tweaks to make sure that our articles were geared toward our female audience.  Columnists' assignments were changed, a couple new topics were added, and sections were realigned.

When November began, I watched as the team adapted to the change. I watched our publications and our readers' reactions.  With everything moving along smoothly, I decided that it was time to implement even more change to our publications.  If we are going to
