August 26th

Hello gorgeous! Happy Friday to you, and what’s shakin in your world this week?

I’m on a short 5 day road trip and am totally enjoying exploring Grand Rapids, MI! Doing something different… oh yes, that is what is rocking my world… I wrote about that a few back – DSD – and I just love that idea. Infuse that into your daily life and see what happens!

Tiki Madness!

My man, Jeff,  and I have visited the coolest tiki bar here, I mean over the top full of art and sculptures and all things tiki. Max’s South Seas Hideaway…Absolutely awesome, and super fun. Good cocktails and good veggie dining options, always important …

Next we visited an over the top gorgeous sculpture and botanical garden (Frederik Meijer’s) and listened to the volunteer docent as she led us on a 45 minute art cruise through the park. Fascinating and informative and highly recommended. All of it so much artful eye candy in under 24 hours!

Then we went to a throwback bowling alley and played a few games (new obsession!) and today we are heading to the beach on Lake Michigan! So yay to doing something different! And Jeff loves to try the local IPA beers…

Before we take off today, we just had a fabulous vegan breakfast sandwich at Little Bird downtown, another highly recommended place for any meal…wow…I do love to go out to dine and love trying new dishes ( vegan) and places, that’s one reason I love to travel so much. Travel to eat!

Make sure to check out this week’s super fun Heart and Hustle interview too, with the fabulous Erin Meadows! Click here


I’ve been having fun doing almost daily instagam reels, my morning love notes to you all! Inspiring you to live more fully, get outside, get your creative juices flowing… Getting ready to offer another virtual workshop in Dancing with your Desires! I’ll keep you posted… in the meantime, visit me on Istagram, here… 

And here’s a love note from this week:


And you know I love to cook too, so here are some kick butt recipes this week…

Who doesn’t love Cauliflower?

Bang Bang Cauli…

As long as we are talking Buffalo… here is a great sandwich from 

Vegan Richa! Gotta have slaw on those sandwiches!

Because chickpeas and avocados are 2 of my all time fav foods!
