It's time to be new and create a forward direction and so I am excited to be sharing ways I have done it and will continue to do as I make that rear view smaller and smaller. It is time.Read More
I love telling this story because on the days that I’m exhausted and think about all the work it takes to be an entrepreneur and a strong woman, I look to her and see my role model.
The woman who after her second stroke, who had lost her speech, but not her spirit, who pushed me out the door when I didn’t think I could do this thing anymore and said in her limited ability, “GO!!! To your meeting. Go!”Read More
What a busy week it has been! I just had my very last photo shoot at my Goat Farm studio and it was bittersweet. I’m going to miss this place! We’ve had some seriously magical and transformative moments throughout the years here. Six years this October I took the risk to get that studio — cleaned it up, had an open house, and got a few renters so I could sustain if needed and I did it!
And so here I go again — in more than one way! I have recently gotten a new studio (next week I’ll take ya’all through some behind the scenes moments with the move … a little scary with new changes but FUN!) because the Goat Farm is going to go under redevelopment and we can’t be there after the fall AND I am making regular trips to Asheville as you guys have noticed!
I know, I know, I might as well just move to Asheville already! And MANY of you actually texted and called me to tell me that last time I got back in March! Evidently, I always say, and have been saying for the past 5 or 6 years now every time I return, “I so want to live in Asheville — maybe one day I will.”Read More
To be honest with you, my mind is a bit blank right now. I am pretty sure yours might be, too. It’s the end of the year, that time “in between” where we barely know what day it is and some of us are just catching up on sleep and dreaming of what the New Year holds and catching up on more sleep. Oh, wait, maybe that’s just me! :)
All in all though, I must admit that it has been a good holiday week. I didn’t just survive, I thrived my very first holiday by myself…Read More
A month after this dance series, I kept saying I didn’t feel well. A month later, I was having weird food episodes like body spasms and complete “back freeze up” and we finally realized it was probably from eating eggs. A month later I could barely walk after waking up with weird lines on my chest that we all joked were from aliens. I would work out crying to my trainer because I could barely lift a 1 lb weight without being exhausted for the rest of the day. My family was in town and all I wanted to do was sleep and sleep some more because I had nothing to give. My body was swollen and inflamed and in more pain than I probably even realized because…Read More
Do you look at this time of year as the time to ‘go, go, go’?! Or do you give yourself permission to slow down and recharge?
I’ve always felt like all the marketing for this time of year is all about planning big for the New Year and spending money on gifts and dinners and stuff that we really don’t hold any value on later and it was exhausting to be in that energy space.
So a few years ago, I made a conscious decision to walk away from that energy and…Read More
I just got back from a great week in Asheville. I’m exhilarated and excited about the women I met and the photos I took. The good news is that I kept everything alive on Facebook over the week, so here are some posts I shared. By the way, are we friends yet? If not, let’s be friends!
I’m still in travel mode so here’s a snippet of the women and the week.
Post from December 4th:Read More
That song, ‘California Dreamin’ isn’t too far from wrong. As I sit here on a cold, blustery day in Atlanta, my mind goes back to last weekend and I smile from the memories. I have been trying to keep a bit of that trip in my back pocket this week when emotional shit has been hitting the fan and it has been a big help. And in those moments where we spiral down a bit, as you probably know, it isn’t always easy to keep the good energy intact.
So here is my beautiful “Tasting Platter” I received from the Universe as I celebrated my newly found freedom and 52nd birthday in California last week.Read More
Have you ever taken a moment to be clear about your business? Look at why certain things feel good and other things suck!? Recognize your unique gifts that you offer the world? Figure out what lights YOU the f*** up?
If you haven’t, I highly encourage you to do it!! You’ll be blown away by what you discover in the process!
These past few weeks have been have been an especially full of self discovery. I’ve felt again like I was chasing my North Star and had no idea where it was!
And unbeknownst to me, however, that North Star? Well, it’s been with me, in me, and the most integral part of me the whole time!Read More
