2015: Year of the Lush Mango!

Happy New Year!

2014 was a great year! It was also a very challenging year at times. Even so, I have much to be grateful for in the past year. Here is a partial list:

A husband who is there for me, no matter what (and this past year, that included my terrible health scare and 4-day hospital stay); my first daughter's finding her call to be the most amazing massage therapist you can imagine; my second daughter's opportunity serve a church mission in Finland during all of 2014, sharing her faith in Jesus Christ and the blessings that come from living His Gospel; my third daughter's call to serve a mission in Africa, starting next week?????!!!!! (she goes to Ghana for missionary training and then head to Madagascar); my fourth daughter's growing leadership skills and talents at school and in the larger community; my first and only son's love of learning about everything from Einstein's Theory of Relativity to how to make the best smoothie. Yes, I am very thankful for my family!  

So while 2014 was an amazing year, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what 2015 brings. And I'm ready to do my part to make it the best year yet, which in my case, involves the creation of a new blog, born just today. It is called and I created it as a gathering place for women (and men) who want to eat to nourish, energize, thrive and lose weight if desired. I hope you'll stop by for a visit. Together, we can make this the best year yet! Here's to a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Happy 2015!

Love and Blessings,
