I ran into Johnathan Goldsmith at the Last Book Store in Downtown LA!


This is not only my dream house, but also the coolest new 72-hour Cabin in Sweden designed

to soothe stress in human beings!  Karolinska Institutet experimented on five different 

professionals and saw a 70% decrease in stress level.  These cabins are now open as holiday

retreats to the general public.  Get more information by visiting www.visitsweden.com



I'm in love with my new favorite city, Austin!  It's the most friendly city with a growing

population of young professionals from all around the country and delicious foods.  While I was in

Austin, I decided to visit Waco (only a 2 hour drive) to check out Chip & Joanna Gaines' Magnolia

Market and Garden at the Silos.  They're a power couple and the stars of the hit TV show, Fixer

Upper, on HGTV who have truly transformed lives all over Waco and lifted the city's

economy in unbelievable ways! Check out more pictures on Instagram &

A family trip to Solvang, a cute little Danish town in Southern California.




Attending a beautiful wedding on the well preserved Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA.  

Known as the greatest ocean liner, it was built in Scotland and sailed from 1936 until 1967 across

the Atlantic Ocean carrying British Royalty and Hollywood celebrities, such as, Audrey Hepburn

and Elizabeth Taylor.  Its Art Deco interior design uses 50 different kinds of woods from

around the world representing elegance, glamour, and function.

Being spiritual rather than religious, I personally don't find the need to follow

any traditions of a religion to connect with God.  I can find God in the giant waves

of the ocean, the wet rain drops against my skin, the strangers I meet while traveling, the

tall trees that grow from tiny seeds, the process of child birth, the unbeatable talent 

of an actor, the desire to change lives one human at a time....

How do you connect with God?  What does religion mean to you?  



Walker Zanger, a high-end natural stone and tile company, recently introduced a new

concrete tile collection called Kaza Concrete, which won the gold award at KBIS 2016

(Kitchen & Bath Industry Show) in Las Vegas.  Its 3-D pattern and modern color palette

are absolutely stunning!


 On my way from Rome to Florence, Italy

Loved the transitional interior design of my hotel room

The Arno River

The gorgeous view of the city.  Life in Florence sprang around 59 B.C.!!
