I'm so excited to share this month's features with you!  I live in Boston and SPRING is such a welcome relief from the cold, dark days of winter.  It is a time of renewal.  Of from the dark into the light.  Which is why I’ve selected the theme of RENEWAL for you this month.  

Renewal is such an amazing thing.  After several feet of snow and ice, flowers pop up.  Birds return to build their nests.  You can fling open the window to let the sun and air in again.  You feel alive!  

I want to have you take that feeling of fresh air and bring it inside.  

Renewal is something that I’ve focused on as I’ve transformed myself from overworked, stressed, to focused and calm.  I’ve learned to love my body, accept it and take care of it.  I may never be on the cover of Sports Illustrated but that doesn’t mean I can’t rock a pair of jeans and look awesome in my own shape.  Renewal is something I’ve HAD to focus on after a move, divorce, job change.  Sometimes there is a plan for you and you don’t know it.  Sometimes you have to trust that spring will come, that life is not over, that ther is sunshine in the future. 

You have to trust in the renewal process. 

For this month, we are collaborating with experts in weight loss, skin care and organization to help you create your amazing life.  If you were looking for a way to kickstart your SPRING, this month is for you.  As always, these steps are simple, practical and do-able!
