lotta love


Reading about the repeated violence makes it harder to see beauty through the horrible headlines. We must stop hurting the planet, the animals and each other. I have hope that we can arrive at a place where we see our time here as precious and treat the world and those around us with respect. I believe we can change. Because I believe we have a lot of love. If we can free ourselves to share that love – to release it into the world without reservation – perhaps we can arrive there soon.



also a few bits of news – i was featured on good day sacramento this past weekend ^_^ you can see the segment here

i am also featured in wedding nouveau magazine, which you can purchase here
have a great day!
