At the beginning of the month, I participated in a Green Smoothie workshop, facilitated by health coach Stephanie Misanik. During the workshop, Stephanie asked each of us to explain why we chose to attend and what we hoped to gain/learn from the experience. It was inspiring to hear each participant’s reasons.

Andy and I went to Tamarindo, Costa Rica with my parents, who co-own a condominium right near the beach. Tamarindo is… Continue reading Recharging the Batteries
