In order to start crowding the bad stuff out of our diets, we need to start crowding in the good stuff! Superfoods, in most cases, are not supplements, they are whole foods in their own right. Superfoods are simply "super" food. There are not strict guidelines of what goes in... Continue reading

For the first week of this endevour I would like to lay down a foundation that is essential to the success of any health improvement goals. We need to do some work on our minds first. Any successful life improvements are a result, first, and foremost of a transformative inner... Continue reading

I'm feeling rather quiet today...I just want to knit...and read...and sit on the beach...and take a bath...and go to bed early. Or any combination of those: beach knitting, bed reading, bath reading AND knitting, etc. (yes! I have knit in the bath from time to time.) Here's what I've been... Continue reading

Local Food...for the fresh, delicious straight from the garden (or earthbox!) taste. I love the benefits for my body and the planet, too. My weekly trip to the local organic farm and I was greeted with these beauties! I think I bought too many for us to eat before they... Continue reading

This picture doesn't do the actual quilt justice, at all, but the story behind it is the most important. Last week I began pulling out some of my Christmas things, including the beautiful quilt my Aunt Lisa made for me last year (see below). My Mother-in-Law admired the quilt so... Continue reading

My MIL (Mami) was here in spirit this evening while Dorin was at work and I had to face a very empty house. I made a Romanian specialty called Ghiveci (the veggie stew lookin' thing) for us. Tonight was mine and Stella's first night alone in the house since Mami... Continue reading

Once upon a time there was a little star child who was still with the angels in heaven and she was very happy there. For a very long time she flew from star to star collecting light and music from all around her. This little star child would play and... Continue reading

In Job Kabat-Zinn's book, "Wherever You Go There You Are" he talks about how even if you have so-called "bad Karma" you can change that. Karma should not be confused for some kind of fixed destiny that is going to come to you based on previous actions, but rather what... Continue reading

Something about the bigness of the ocean, the sky, the sun, nature, and even what humans have achieved in our short time on this planet has stretched me today. I am a creative type. Meaning I like to make something out of nothing. This takes risk at times...risk of failure.... Continue reading

Ugh! Another amazing evening at the beach! This time of year is like "SPRING" for those of us living way down here in southern Florida. We've been cooped up in the A/C for the past few months. Summertime in the tropics is like winter in the North, you spend most... Continue reading

Today I would like to say "Happy Birthday!" to my closest friend Laura! She has been there for me in so many ways I can actually credit her for helping to finally find the happiness I have today. She has helped me grow so much throughout the years I would... Continue reading

Yesterday we spent the day in Ellenton, FL at the Earthbox Research Center http://www.earthboxresearch.com/ and found an amazing new way to garden. The benefits of the amazing Earthbox are clear when you see the yields that they were producing there at the Research Center. The premise of the box is... Continue reading

The angel is getting big! This is kind of a long one...it just kind of became that way. This morning I was lying in bed with my babe and she was giving me some HUGE smiles (which are pretty much the highlight of my world) and I noticed two little... Continue reading

I wish the actual vacation, itself, lasted as long as it is taking me to get all the pictures up...but I am enjoying reliving it for a few minutes while I look back and try to decide what stories I might want to tell from that great time. But it's... Continue reading

Here are the last of the photos of our magical vacation...your first vacation. Sometimes they say, "Less is More" and I do agree with that a lot of the time, but not in this case, apparently. I have been such a dork about posting the pictures of our little family's... Continue reading
