During the holidays, the family and I took a trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for a ski trip. We fell in love with the small town and the mountain was right-sized for me— not too overwhelming, and lots of blues and greens to keep me happy and not too challenged! Plus, we were blessed with 20 marvelous inches of snow the day we got there— I was up to my calves in powder, and fell face first a couple of times. A pro-skiier, I am not.
To say that the Consumer Electronics Show (AKA “CES”) is overwhelming is an understatement. Think of the most jam-packed conference/exhibition you’ve ever been to— then imagine it 50X bigger. It takes up the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, and has spread to numerous buildings around the city. Now that I’m back, (and sufficiently tech-detoxed) I wanted to share the things I saw that caught my eye. The truth: There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as getting a sneak peek at so much of the future. Here, the items I loved the most.
I’m taking the day to recover from CES, where I saw more gadgets than my brain knows what to do with. I’m already working on a round-up of some of the best things I saw (I’ll have that for you next week!) but today, I wanted to bring your attention to this article that I wrote for Mindbodygreen (yes, i’m writing for them now thanks to my friend, Dana— and I couldn’t be happier!)

Greetings from the airport! Just a quick post to let you know that I’m on my way to CES 2018, which is going to be a ridiculously-jam-packed week of work and fun and scouting out all the latest technology.
Google and Amazon are in a battle to win the rights to listen in to your conversations at home, and I expect to see LOTS of new products with Google’s assistant or Amazon Alexa built in. Lots and lots of robots and artificial intelligence are already making a big splash, and everything from toys to cars to ovens are becoming a lot smarter. (That’s Buddy pictured above, a personal robot that Engadget called “Alexa with eyes”. Hee.)
See ya in Vegas, baby!
Swearing to rev up your exercise routine is about as clichéd as it gets when it comes to New Year’s resolutions. Still, it’s a totally valid one that many of us keep on making year after year. Especially after the insane pace and non-stop eating and drinking the holiday season entails, when workouts tend to take a backseat to frenzied shopping trips and egg nog-saturated cookie swaps.
