As I begin this journey of blogging, I really should look at why in the world I would take on one more task in my life? I mean, am I nuts? I have so many irons in the fire, why would I do this to myself? I’ve had a blog acct set up since 2009 on blogger and never written a word! Maybe I’m just not cut out for this…but then something changed and my little non-active blog secret took on a joyous tone.
Thank you Carla Golden for introducing me to Wendy Simard – https://www.facebook.com/SproutedContent Wendy’s Blog Challenge gave me reason to think more intently on “doing this now.” I decided to challenge myself to one post a week. Trying to be realistic considering that first post took me about three years of adjustments and is actually the foreword in a book I’ve been working on. Today I’m feeling pretty pumped this post only took a couple of days! LOL I’ve decided the timing wasn’t right to open a chapter of blogging and could beat myself up and say I procrastinated for 5 years….or choose to think the Universe/God/Divine Vibration/Higher Power brings into my life exactly what I need exactly when I need it. Hopefully I always appreciate said Universe’s choice of timing. 😉
They say if you have a gift, share it. I write better than I speak so here we go. I’ll try to keep it light, informative and colorful! (Thanks Baylie for that incentive.) Wisdom, insights, truth and the beauty of life….yup that’s what I’ll be sharing. So thanks for journeying with me.

A wife of 32 years and mom to 5 grown-up kids from 22 yr old twins to 31 – 3 girls, 2 boys. Life blessed us with glorious children. And we are certain one of the reasons they were/are so glorious is from 8 years in they were fed without white sugar, white flour or anything with a face – in other words, plant-based, lots of raw, vegan way of eating…..95% of the time. Sometimes we’d veer back into our old ways, but it would prove without a doubt our way of eating enhanced everything in our lives, except lunchtime at school when the other kids thought cabbage, p’nut butter raisin rolls looked funny! We made the change back in 1990 and have not looked back. Now we actually get to revel in great and way above average health. We took the nourish the child route with whole plant foods and let their bodies grow their own defenses. It worked beautifully I’m happy to share. Life has also blessed us with a 10 yr old grandson and 3 yr old granddaughter (who scored a 10 on her Apgar when born, to me another indication clean eating helps us thrive.)
My whole life has revolved around dance. I’ve danced for more than 1/2 a century. For the past 40 years taught tap, lyrical ballet and jazz, owning studios from Key West to Bar Harbor with over 2000 kids who have graced my life due to dance. I’m very thankful. My husband, Craig built or remodeled 9 different spaces into beautiful sanctuaries of dance where I spent my career. And now our middle daughter Shelbi has taken over the business of the business and I get to just teach and choreograph. Its is a beautiful life.
When not teaching, these are the passions I pursue

Be on the watch for a children’s book coming this summer about Two Kitties at Two Cats / a cool Bar Harbor breakfast spot.
Thanks so much for reading. I want the world to be a better place for my Heaven and my Hero. I know, who has grandchildren named Heaven and Hero? LOL It is my hope to help bring light, love and insight to the world while envisioning a loving, understanding, sharing, caring world that will come to fruition as we all work on it. Thank you for helping.
