2019: A New Beginning

(Me and my girl wishing you an abundance of JOY and PURPOSE in 2019 and beyond!) I have been a long-time fan of a fresh start (and any opportunity to start anew, really). It could be moving into a new home, a different school experience for my child and even opening the pages of a […]

A Retreat (Self-Imposed)

Super Soul Sessions with Oprah

(A Day with Oprah) I was absolutely overwhelmed with elation this past Saturday as I attended Super Soul Sessions 2 with Oprah Winfrey at nearby Royce Hall, UCLA. It has long been a dream of mine (and most of us, really) to be in the presence of Oprah. Certainly, as she has continued moving toward […]
