Happy Little Finds: A Pile of Pink Clothes.

It’s been a week of piles. Piles of laundry. Piles of needs. Piles of junk building up in the car. Piles of goals to meet and messages to respond to. Piles of frustration and running and plopping into bed every night, exhausted. Piles of spilled milk and inside-out clothes to sort. Piles of problems and reasons… read more

My Journey to Health: Becoming Grateful

Gratitude, like forgiveness, has been such a game-changer for me that I hardly know where to start in describing how it has re-designed my life. Like forgiveness, it has been a major cornerstone to my healing, and a huge component of my happiness. And like forgiveness, I am still in process with it.

More of a community. More of a global coffee shop. More you and me, coming together with ideas on how to… read more

My Journey to Health: Learning to Forgive

How did you ever forgive your husband for cheating on you? I get asked this question alot. Especially from my female friends. And honestly I don’t really know. First, I’m not sure that I have forgiven. That proclaims a certain amount of past tense accomplishment, i.e. I have lived in Ohio, or I have been to Thailand, and… read more

A Green Smoothie: The Goddess of All Drinks.

I first learned about the green smoothie seven years ago, when I was actively scouring the web for natural cures to my dad’s cancer. I stumbled across Victoria Boutenko’s website one day and tried out one of her green smoothie recipes. I was surprised at how delicious it was, and how energized I felt after just one glass.… read more
