Get Ready for Allergy Season

Every spring for the past few years I have been kicking myself for not remembering to prepare for allergy season sooner. Once the icky physical feels hit me and my child, only then do I recall “of yea, we were supposed to get the jump on this months ago” a day late and dollar short! This […]

(Strategically Engineered) Lentil Soup

I love red lentils. I’m a big time bean eater anyway but red lentils have to be my absolute favorite.

Radiate Powerful Presence

I love the intersection of spirit and mind. When scientific discovery confirms what your people have been telling you all along, for me it’s THE greatest confirmation. One of my best and most inspiring lessons is “fake it, til ya make it!” I think I always felt as though I was being dishonest (to whom, I’m […]
