Hey all,

It has been a while since I wrote a blog post! I had many ideas to keep it going, but then had a few life changes that took all my time! To sum up: as soon as things reopened after the you-know-what shutdowns, my mobile massage business was absolutely slammed all the way through the beginning of THIS year! I never went back to teaching piano lessons after taking a break in early 2020. My massage business kept me so busy! I still modeled and acted on the side for fun, took some big trips, and then won my state title in a mermaid pageant. What?!!! Yep, an internationally recognized pageant run by The Miss Mermaid International Pageant Program. My modeling actually lead me back into acting, and finally deciding to have a childrens entertainer business on the side as of the beginning of 2023.

My Massage business finally slowed back down this year. I had a lot more time to enjoy other things I love to do, and spend time with family. I also finally had the time (starting back in April) to begin holistic health Coach classes through AFPA. After completing them in early November, I passed my holistic health coach certification exam before the holidays hit! I am Excited to add holistic health coaching services under my massage business in early 2024.

Luckily, no kidney stones or anything too crazy has happened. I am still living a low-sugar, natural living kind of diet and lifestyle. It is still showing all kinds of benefits for my skin and overall health! As far as working out and yoga, I had a leg injury last summer, so I no longer run. Instead, I took up swimming and scuba diving! The mermaid thing lead me to try more complicated water sports. I completed my PADI Advanced mermaid certification in 2022, and my PADI open water scuba diving certification earlier this year. When I vacationed in Florida this past October, I not only went scuba diving in springs, but also swam at a aquarium in a mermaid tail!

I decided to keep this blog, and use it to help spread new things I learned from my Holistic Health Coach Classes, as well as new related info. You can also follow my new Health Coach Facebook Page for interesting facts and findings realted to holistic living and healthy eating.

Thank you for all who supported and stuck with me since I started this blog back in 2017!
