What Every Woman Ought to Know Before Getting Married


This past weekend, I got married to the most beautiful man I have ever met. There are really no words to describe how one feels when they walk through life with their true companion. In many ways, I believe relationships are our biggest teachers in this lifetime. I met Ric two years ago when I was 35 and that intuitive nudge whispered in my ear that I had met my life partner.

A compassionate Life


I remember when I was little saying to my parents ‘I want to save all the animals in the whole world’. Growing up in a household with parents that allowed me to be exactly what I wanted to be at that time, they only encouraged me to get as much exposure to animals as possible.
