Ah, I totally could re-read Gift from the Sea every year. I love that you own 6 copies and give one away if someone inquires about it. I seriously think every woman should read this book! Ha, so it seems we all get the same thing in the sample box. I really love having healthy snacks around, so I might continue the subscription. There are some goodies on their website I'm dying to try :) xo

Oh yes, I think you really love Gift from the Sea, Rachel. It's a short little book full of sweet nuggets of wisdom. I think I want to read it every year... on the beach :) xo

1. Missing: little Suzu, my niece cat. She stayed with us while my brother and his family were away traveling. It was so nice to have a kitty in the house again! Every since sweet Bailey passed, there's been a void in our home. One that can only be filled with purrs and fur. I think I'm finally ready for another forever feline friend. 2. Reading: American Pastoral by Philip Roth - our next book club selection. Have you read it? I'm only through the first chapter, but I can already foresee some late night page-turning in my immediate future.... Continue reading

Thanks Dee! #3 is my favorite :) xo

I started a new part-time gig with a local wedding planning and production company and one of my jobs is to blog for them once a week. It's great because now I have a bona fide legit reason for spending way too many hours browsing wedding sites for "research" purposes. Today on their blog, I'm talking about the reception dress. Is a 2nd outfit truly necessary? Yes and yes. If you remember from my own wedding a few years back, my inexpensive little tango number saved the day after my long chiffon gown was ruined on our motorcycle ride. Hop... Continue reading

Positive energy your way sweet Jisaela! If you attracted these challenges into your life, it's so you can practice handling them with love. Find gratitude in the good parts of your life, and you'll be able to see the "problems" more as blessings. I promise you, this works! Do whatever you can to bring more joy in your life. Keep me posted on things, okay friend? Big hug! xo
Oh wow, thanks for sharing your story D. Emergencies before cell phones - what did we do?! I also think that men cannot resist helping a beautiful girl on the side of the road trying to change a tire by herself ;) And yes, mint choc chip ice cream is an excellent vibration raiser! Ha.
Sending you good 'hire me' vibes, my dear! I have no doubt you'll attract the right paying clients soon. Just stay focused and positive - your ideal projects will find you in no time! xo About the gas... I sure hope that's the case! Now I check my gauge the moment I sit down in the driver's seat ;)
I think the fact that you felt more connected and alive there.. that's the energy that most people refer to! It can be very subtle for some :) xo

The scariest thing happened to me the other night. I ran out of gas on a busy highway! On the one day I forgot my driver's license at home. The traffic was going too fast to pull off to the right, so there I was at a dead stop in the middle lane of I-5. Vehicles were honking and swerving around me to avoid a collision. I couldn't bear to look into my rear-view mirror, as cars were missing me by mere inches. This was it - this was how I would die! It was traumatic to say the least,... Continue reading

Oh cool Sara! I'm happy to hear you had a similar moving experience :) Somehow I missed the church? Where was it?

I just returned from the sweetest girlfriend getaway in Sedona. But not just any girlfriend getaway. Most of these ladies were founding members of the USC Sirens, my all-female college a capella group. Although we live in many different states, we've remained close over the years. That's what singing, recording, touring and performing together will do for you! I've been wanting to visit Sedona for quite some time - not only to witness its breathtaking natural beauty, but to soak up the good vibes. As you may know, the town is known as a spiritual mecca due to the area's... Continue reading

Hi Sara - I'm so glad you reached out! Your struggles sound very similar to my own. I'm glad to hear you're still full of hope and belief that your baby will come. It's so very important. If you ever want to talk more, I'm just an email away. Lots of love and baby dust to you and your husband! xo
I do see some similarities to the Secret, you're right :) Thank you for your kind thoughts and words Kelly Jayne! xo
Well thank you Adam - so nice of you!

Perfection! Do you happen to know what bush the bottom photo is? I love the pattern of the leaves. Almost looks like a photography motion trick?
