Happy Graduation Sevanna

This is one of my niece's Sevannah.  Also known as NANNA.  She graduated from pre-school today and I can't help but think she has a bright future ahead of her.  I was able to make it back to my parent's house in enough time to surprise her at her ceremony.  I think ice cream is in order!  

Austin revisited

Submitted by Sarah Kelly on Tue, 2011-05-31 00:00

I stopped in Austin for a quick visit before heading on to the Motherland.  I love Austin so much!  The people are so warm and geniune...the food divine!!!  I stayed with my friend Kelly (from Standard Magazine) who moved to Austin about 6 months ago.  I was not at all surprised that her guest room was incredibly comfortable and well appointed!  


I also had a chance to visit one of my clients while I was in town and was able to check in on how she was getting settled.  We worked together on a major remodel of the house and interior design.  Here are a few pictures from the project.  You can see the whole thing over here!   


Yosemite - who knew?

 If you have ever been to Yosemite, then you obviously know how amazing it is.  I personally had NO IDEA.  The timing of my first visit was perfect!  It's spring and simply beautiful.  The waterfalls are raging and everything is green green GREEN!  I kept thinking how inspirational everything around me was.  Colors, textures, patterns...did I mention color?  Here are some snaps from my trip.  It was far too short but I will return someday...soon I hope.

So remember when I said that Margy and Dave are incredibly creative and fun?  Well, as I was pulling into the farm I saw these red stick people (and a little dog) built out of 2" x 4"'s that appeared to be running through the wild flowers.  YES!!!!  I had such a wonderful visit and love them SO MUCH!!!

I'm out of here!

I've decided to spend some time over the summer doing Research and Development on a new business endeavor I would like to try to make happen.  This new endeavor takes me to the Midwest where I will also enjoy some vacation time with family and friends.  My mom is turning 75, and one of my very best friends in the world is turning 40!  My travels will take me to Yosemite, Austin TX, Chicago IL, various locations within Indiana, a road trip to Ohio, Vermont, Boston, and then back to Indiana.  It should be pretty interesting to say the least.  Fingers crossed for a great trip.


BUT FIRST!  I'm visiting my dear friends Margy and Dave at their farm in the Santa Ynez Valley this weekend.  The farm is a magical and nurturing place where I feel completely renewed and inspired.  I am still feeling a little raw from the past several months but having this be the first stop on my summer trip is just what the doctor ordered.  Margy and Dave are such creative and wonderful people - I can't wait to catch up with them and see what they are up to.    

Heavy metal...and not the good kind.

I've been quiet for a little while because I have been going through a serious heavy metal detox and cleanse.  I hadn't been feeling 100% for some time so I went to go and see my doctor.  I had all of these seemingly unrelated issues and symptoms, but when I told my doctor about them she diagnosed me with heavy metal poisining.  We did some testing and I had pretty high levels of lead and mercury.  It was getting scary because some of the symptoms were like the early onset of Alzymers.  For example, if I was speaking to someone and the next logical word should have been brain just could not produce the word dog.  My hands were starting to tremble uncontrollably and I just wasn't myself.


Fortunately I have an extremely talented doctor (Dr. Dorine Karlin), who was able to REALLY help me throughout the process.  If you are interested in checking out her medical center, here is the link (  I don't know if any of you have ever had to go through an intense cleanse but it was not fun.  It was like what I would imagine an exorsism feeling like.  Physically and emotionally I was pushed to my limits.  Detoxing your body can be extremely exhausting and challenging work but the experience has completely changed me and I am profoundly grateful to be well again.  Actually, I am the healthiest I believe I have ever been and it is well worth the effort and work that went into it.  I wouldn't hesitate to do it again if I needed to.  Dr. Karlin was such an amazing partner and I couldn't give her enough gratitude.  Whew...I'm glad that is behind me.
