Love Between People And Their Pets

It’s been weeks since Kodi my 10-year-old Scottie passed away. I couldn’t even talk or write about him because he was so special. He was my right hand man! A gentle dog with some of the same manners as a gentleman. He always waited until Maggie and Brooklyn, our other two Scotties, had their food… Read More

Fruit Is My Direct Drive

Fruit is my direct drive! It’s simple, nutritious, colorful… a one hit wonder! It’s powerful and efficient. It’s a super safe choice if you’re gluten intolerant or have Celiac, and (in its purest form) the best overall thing for your healthy body, besides vegetables. It’s easily accessible while traveling, and an apple in your backpack… Read More

Get Happiness From Within

People look everywhere for their happiness. They continually search and think they’ll find it somewhere else, but it’s SO right there where they can touch it… in their own hearts. I always say, if you wake up in the morning and you’re breathing, walking, you can hear and see, and you’re NOT sick, then that… Read More

Light Lunch Love

My best bet for staying fit and healthy is to have a high protein, light gluten free lunch. Sometimes I’ll go out for lunch, but I mostly make a small meal at home because I can control portions and quality much more easily.

I aspire to imitate those who display grace and dignity naturally, and with ease. These are my Role Models of Kindness. I am stirred by the people that do the minutiae behind the scenes as… Read More

Turn on Your Heartlight

I’ve always loved space… and music. Classic rock especially. But I did not know that Brian May from Queen is an Astrophysicist until recently! He is highly educated and has a PhD in astronomy, returning to his thesis and love of science after he abandoned it around 36 years ago for life with his band,… Read More


easy gluten free hot soup in the summer recipe

Hot Soup in the Summertime

“Them summer days, those summer days!” Hot soup in the summertime seems counterintuitive, especially in Florida. But soup can be fun and comforting when the afternoon storms kick up and you’re indoors. I love going completely pure for a few days after traveling… with LOTS of water and veggies. Salads or vegetable soup are both… Read More

Buddy System

We all have that favorite t-shirt that we love or pair of jeans that fit just right (Levis 501’s from H.S. anyone?) They’re like an old buddy. You can count on them. It’s pure comfort! I have this white summer dress with small nautical flags on it that looks best when I’m swimming a lot… Read More
