Knott’s Boysenberry Festival is Back Again for Its Third Year!

Two weeks ago, I was invited to attend the media tasting event for Knott’s Boysenberry Festival 2015, which runs from March 28 through April 12. It was my first festival, as I’d been living outside of California for a few years, but I’ve always been a freak for boysenberry funnel cakes so I knew I’d […]

My Visit to San Diego for #SMMW15

Last week, I picked up my rental car from Fox locally in Ontario, a zippy little 2015 Sentra with less than 1000 miles on it, threw my inordinately large suitcase into the trunk, tossed my cell phone onto the passenger seat and headed down the 15 freeway with San Diego as my final destination. I […]

Spiral Light Candles and My Yoga Space

Peace. Tranquility. Rejuvenation. Relaxation. Zen. These are all things I seek to achieve when I’m practicing yoga. And I love the use of the word practice, as there will always be room for improvement, more flexibility and additional poses. Yoga is an under-appreciated form of exercise that will get you toned and have you working […]


Think Twice Before You Blast a Business on Social Media

Ever have a bad day? If you say no, come on… I’m going to go on the assumption that everyone was honest and said “heck yeah!” and go from there. Pretend today is your bad day. You have to go to work despite not feeling your best, your kids are lagging at getting out the […]


Cinderella, Disney’s Latest Movie

“Have courage and be kind.” As a little girl, I loved Cinderella. I remember that we had a wind-up Cinderella music box on a shelf in the corner of the bedroom and her beautiful blue dress would shine at night as the light came in. She seemed so magical, and when the mice held up […]

Finding Hope – Book 3 of the Find Me Series – Cover Reveal!

My Visit With Aarti Sequeira, and Her New 10 Minute Meals Series

Back in 2010, the husband and I were watching The Next Food Network Star. We’ve watched it every season, and we always make bets on who we think we will. That season, my money was on a new chef — a blogger with a thriving YouTube food channel — named Aarti Sequeira. I loved her […]

Cosmos Creations: My New Favorite Snack!

I’m not a big breakfast eater. I usually make a smoothie, which tastes great and is pretty filling and lunch is typically a salad. Then comes the big gap between lunch and dinner, because after working a full day, helping Little Dude (still no new nickname) with homework, catching up on housework and doing blog/social […]
