Recovery is Possible With Support

The world is full of problems and sometimes it seems like there’s nothing we can do. It can be overwhelming so sometimes we just look the other way – until it happens to us or someone we love. I know from personal experience the pain and suffering a family goes through when someone is suffering…

Support Film to Stop Domestic Sex Trafficing

It’s in your community; maybe down the street or a block away someone’s child goes missing. A young teen runs away and soon discovers that it’s not so easy to survive. Children lured by the glamor of money and the illusion that anything is okay are tricked into a demoralizing, painful and hopeless lifestyle. IF…

New Year – New Me

I like to start off each new year by reminding myself of what I accomplished in the past year, or by thinking about all the good things that happened. I don’t think I made a New Year’s post for 2014, but my New Year’s post for 2013 was an “I Did It” list instead of a new…

Yoga Bed

My yoga classes fell by the wayside last winter when I got a job with an unpredictable schedule. That seems to be a recurring theme in my life, unpredictable. So I’ve always struggled to keep an exercise routine going. However, one thing that does work for me is doing a little yoga before getting out…

Soup du Jour

The weather turns cold or rainy and I think of a yummy warm bowl of soup to relieve the aches in my bones. Rather than opening a can, I create a quick and healthy pot full of deliciousness that lasts for days. Fast, easy and intuitive – that’s my cooking motto. Here’s how it works:…

Food – The Easy Difference

Fennel and Spice I was looking for something different, a unique taste to vary my diet a little. In the grocery store I picked up a bunch of Fennel or Anise, noticing that it grew in a similar way as celery. This was valuable to me because I’m always looking for vegetables that have a…
