Faery Tales

As a kid, I remember being obsessed with Tinkerbell. I think I dressed as her like three years in a row.  As an adult, reading the story, I see Tinkerbell in a whole other light. As a kid, I loved the way she floated around, sprinkling faery dust, and in my mind, helping others. As … Continue reading Faery Tales

Living On Purpose

A question that I get asked repeatedly is "How did you figure out your purpose?" I don't really know the real answer to that. I've always just kind of done what feels good to me. To others, it looked like I am the kind of person that goes with the flow. I've been called a … Continue reading Living On Purpose
