Cats, Acupuncture, and Intuitions

If you know me well or have ever talked to me for an extended period of time, there is a great likelihood I have at some point shared my love of acupuncture with you. (I promise there is a long overdue blog post coming dedicated to this topic!) I feel very blessed to have discovered… read more

Going Green

When it comes to being green – it’s been a slow and steady learning curve in our household. Like everything else in life I really and truly believe that everything must be done in moderation. I know that our children will inevitably be exposed to toxins and carcinogens (as we were and continue to be… read more

Move On: A Series on Wellness

No point in holding on to the past if the past ain’t working. I have always been one for reinvention. A lot of people say, “I’m not the exercise type.” Or “I just don’t have time to work out.” I myself am guilty of uttering both. But here’s the thing – we owe it to… read more

A “handful” of lovin’ in your torso region that you can’t seem to part with? Any interest in showing your kids that Mommy and Daddy can… read more

Herbal Remedies

Fresh herbs can transform a meal. A sprig of parsley makes a bowl of soup look regal. A few mint leaves make a cocktail more festive. And without fresh basil – tomato and mozzarella would be a lonely pair. While they are easily found in the produce section – I think growing them in your… read more

Good Night

Let me begin by saying I am NOT a doctor. I may think I’m a doctor, and talk like I am a doctor, but I am NOT a doctor. That means when I talk about ailments and their cures it is just my personal opinion of what works in the healing department. That being said… read more
