“The only way that I find balance is the constant reminder that it isn’t the quantity of time but the quality of time. Spending four days in Mammoth with my daughter over Valentine’s Day weekend and snowboarding with her—it’s that kind of experience. As soon as we step into Los Angeles, I was like, "Gotta go.
