Why It's Okay To Treat Yourself To A Solo Date Night

Every now and again I like to take myself out. Yep, you heard me, a good old fashioned solo date night. Sound weird? Hardly. And if you have never tried it or think it's kinda dumb to go out alone, think again. I love alone time.

3 Tips To Help You Live In The Present

A few days ago, I ran into a friend at Whole Foods.  I had been standing in the check out line when she arrived, texting someone else. When she popped in line behind me I was excited to see her but realized after a moment that I had not stopped texting. We moved away from the checkout line and towards the parking lot to catch up for a few minutes and all I c...

What Do You Do With That Angry Person In Your Life?

Do you have someone in your life that constantly acts like a grouch?  No matter what you say, he or she always have a negative response?

Strawberry Lemonade

I have kids and kids love juice (and sweet things). You cannot gauge how much real sugar (it's usually WAY too much) is in store bought stuff so I encourage my girls to make their own drinks. Taking part in preparing their own meals or beverages allows them to have a relationship with what they  choose.  It also allows them to learn how fruits and veg...

Eggplant Chips with Vegan Taziki

Before I became a vegan I love Taziki with dairy so you can imagine how delighted I was when I found a vegan raw substitute.

How To Find Forgiveness In Your Heart

Last year I was teaching at a local yoga studio.  The owner and I had even been talking about me buying in and becoming her partner.  She was great with customer relations. I was the marketing queen.  We both thought it would be a good fit.  Or at least I did. We went through weeks of discussions and then, out of nowhere, she backed off.  Not only were ou...

5 Signs You Are With The Wrong Person

I've been married twice. The first time I got married I thought I was with the man of my dreams, but as time passed we drifted apart. It happens all the time in relationships.

Going Organic Isn't a Gimmick - Make It Count!

In 2014 America, we have more choices than ever in our history. Cars, clothes, whether we want Chinese or Mexican for dinner tonight. We can even decide how we want our produce, meat and dairy grown. But, why choose organic food over commercially grown food, when organic food is so much more expensive? Does it taste better? Is it healthier? Isn’t it just ano...
