  • When I was 18, I imagined my life WOULD be. this. good. 
Now that I am 52, I sometimes have to pinch myself because my dreams have come true. 
Oh please know, the road  to get here was not easy. When I was young I didn’t realize what it would take. How many mountains I would have to climb. How many valleys I would endure. How many people I would disappoint. How many people would disappoint me!  But you see if I had known that.....I might have chickened out. 
To become an entrepreneur you have to have a strong vision. You have to be willing to get knocked down. You have to be willing to look deep inside yourself to become a better version of who you were meant to be. It isn’t easy, but I can promise you, it’s worth it! 
What do you see for yourself in your future? What is it that gets you anxious and excited at the same time? Go for it! Make it happen! Life is too short to live small. 
You CAN accomplish anything you put your mind to. Just hold strong to your vision!

  • “Hold on tight to your dreams” by ELO. 💥

What’s next?  Oh we have them. 💥
How about what’s next for you? 💥
Go for it!! Get rid of your limiting beliefs and just do it. My dreams may not be yours. Yours are just as impactful. 💥

  • 14 years ago my success coach said this to me.  I adopted this mantra and have owned it ever since.  I believe in dreams. 
God has given our subconscious an amazing ability to picture the future as if it has already happened. So visualizing what we want our future to be, is SO important!

I have been on a personal growth journey since I was 19 when I managed a T-Shirt ship in Aspen Colorado.  My manages is one of my first mentors that instilled in me that I could achieve anything I wanted.  She had successfully opened 3 shops in 3 different ski towns by the time she was 30! 
Along the way I learned that dreaming wasn’t enough.  I had to put action behind my dreams.  Action requires hard work, consistency, staying away from the dream stealers, getting up when you fall, being brave and most of all NEVER giving up.

This weekend I am realizing a dream that started 5 years ago.  A RETREAT!  It was in my mind.  I could picture it clearly.  This weekend I will have 12 women in my home to be inspired about their future.  This weekend I know will have a positive and impactful stamp on all of us.  A retreat for bonding, laughing, growing, learning, crying, planning, encouraging and most of all……FUN! 
What ever your one big dream is, go for it! Maybe there are smaller ones before you get to the bigger ones.  Maybe there are some reservations.  I am living proof that dreams do come true.  When action is applied, you can see them come to fruition.

  • This IS one of our favorite towns!! The marina feels like we are at the ocean. The people are always talkative and friendly. Life is slower here. SO needed for us.
We love our lives. Being entrepreneurs has its benefits for sure! We love the flexibility, the ability to say yes more often to the things that are important to us. Like our annual trip down the river. Life seems to “float by” for 4 short days. This is were we get to celebrate our accomplishments, image our future and make a plan to execute our dreams, because A WISH REMAINS A DREAM WITHOUT ACTION. 💥
Taking time out to reflect what has worked and what needs tweaking in your relationship along with making plans for the future, is essential for a healthy marriage. 💘
Where will your next get away be? 🌻

  • I STILL catch on fire when Dave looks at me! Even after 26 years!
Some say marriage is tough.  I actually don’t think it is.  Yes, there are sacrifices.  Yes, there are disagreements. Yes, asking for forgiveness is necessary.  However, when we said “I do”, we already pictured our lives together forever.  I know…..that sounds cliche.  But really.  When I met Dave I had journaled for a man such as he.  I trusted God. I knew he would bring me my prince charming and He did!  Certainly it’s been easier, since he had all the qualities I had written in my journal, but we still have had to decide that we are going to have a great marriage.  And we had to decide to put God first in our lives, so that we could have a marriage that lasts. 💞💘🧡

  • Friends. Are. Necessary.
Now that I have entered the next half of my life, I realize more than ever how important it is to spend time with women who lift me up and inspire me. 💥
I also am ecstatic when God brings new relationships in my life. Mellissa and I have been acquaintances for many years, but recently unexpected circumstances have brought us together. ☺️
And that is how life goes. When we embrace our circumstances and trust God’s plan to prevail, we can rep the benefits. The blessings are countless. The rewards are limitless. The future is joyous. 💐
