Favorite Quote

I enjoy uplifting and positive phrases – one of my current favorites with the gorgeous spring weather we’ve been having is this, “Don’t just be a spectator to the weather today. “Be there” for the sun on your face, wind in your hair, or rain on your skin.” themindfulist.com

Be the breath of fresh air that brightens someone else’s day.

What Makes Your Life Chic?

Taking time to take some deep breathes and center myself each and everyday. I also regularly take time to meditate, attend yoga classes, and treat myself to massage and acupuncture appointments.
