Happy Soulful New Year

Happy New Year! Over the holidays I played “at” golf! Imagine the surprised look on Jami’s face when he’d turn around expecting me to swing and instead of seeing a club in my hand, he’d see me taking ENDLESS photos of the stunning sunset! Not to mention, then comparing photos with Will, who was as…

What makes a Relationship Thrive?

I can’t even believe Jami and I have been married for 20 years, together for 24! Whether you’re married, parenting, “adult-ing”, “career-ing”, “friend-ing”, we’re all involved in long term relationships to differing degrees. What makes a relationship work well?

How I Freed Myself from my Past

Your past can IMPRISON you or EMPOWER you!  I’m becoming so aware of the ways that I’ve allowed my past to IMPRISON me, especially where ABUNDANCE is concerned.  Since I met Jami, he’s always said, “Babe, you have the Midas Touch” and every time he’d say it, in my mind, I’d silently say back to…
