Another month in the review mirror!  It’s crazy how quickly the months are flying by.  We so hope that you enjoyed focusing on community this month.  We loved meeting our neighbors, helping our friends, creating networks to help support our goals, unplugging ourselves from our TVs, phones, and gadgets and quite simply trying to help […]

In the spirit of community, we put together some of our favorite products that help our global community and the planet as a whole!  These are such inspiring companies and are certainly a great way to give back while you’re getting some pretty fun stuff for yourself or your own friends and family. 1.

How many success stories have you heard where someone said that they had no help and they did everything on their own?  I’m guessing none, although I am more than happy to be proven wrong.  My point is, that while success certainly has to come from a driven and creative individual, no one can do […]

It’s so funny how every single time we have picked a theme, that particular concept ends up coming up for me over and over again during the month.  This Saturday, I’m moving and while moving is always stressful and certainly while you are teaching, rehearsing for two shows, auditioning, working, writing a blog, and keeping […]

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend, filled with rest, community, and fun!  As I was getting back into the swing of things this morning, I realized that the weekend I just had fit right in with the theme we are discussing this month.  I went to Santa Ynez with a bunch of […]

The summer after eighth grade, I volunteered at a hospital in Denver.  I must have clocked over 150 hours of volunteer work that summer between the daycare center, information desk, delivering flowers, manning the desk at the gift shop and being the go-fer in my mom’s office.  Looking back, every skill I have ever used […]
