There Is Nothing I Cannot Do! A Special afternoon with Jen Bricker

Last Friday I had the pleasure of spending a few splendid hours with my beautiful friend Jen Bricker. We had gathered with a handful of friends for the screening of Eva Longoria's Versus: Romanian Roots. I met Jen when she first moved to Los Angeles six years ago.

Meanwhile Sabrina and I make our way out to Topanga Canyon for our aerial fitness classes. I don't … [Read more...]

Life a Bed of Roses?

By Janet Mueller If life were like a bed of roses what would that look like to you? The reality is of course that life just isn’t always a bed of roses, although we do have a choice in how we choose to view our life. I used to have a friend who would constantly complain about everything. Always talking in a negative way, downing herself and other people too. I’d find myself not wanting to … [Read more...]
