The Love Whisperer

I really do see life through rose colored glasses, whether I’m strolling along the beach with sand in between my toes, sniffing early spring’s soft purple lilacs, or watching a heavy rain fall in sheets in late summer. There is an intoxicating promise inherent in new love and a deep intimacy that comes with the love of a lifetime.

And, as you might have guessed, I am a hopeless romantic – that’s why I entered the love business, wrote two books on love and relationships, coached hundreds of clients to get the love and life they dreamed of and, at the end of the day, none of that has made me an expert. Rather, this is what made me an expert:

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone who has hosed up their love lives the way I have. I’ve had relationships that left me bone dry and bankrupt in nearly every way (I’ve even come close to Chapter 7 when one love went awry.) I’ve been in romantic partnerships that have tried to kill me off (once with a kitchen knife and once staring down the barrel of a gun.)

While my double life looked like Gucci and Manolo Blahnik on the outside, on the inside the “closet” was on fire and there was little chance of saving a single empty shoe box. No one else knew what was really happening inside my home and heart.

Today, were you to glance at my life, you would suppose someone waved a magic wand over it. I’m living a life I once hardly had the courage to imagine – I’m wildly in love with the man I’m married to, I have two amazing children and I wake up in a beautiful home to do work that feeds my soul and my bank account. It’s easy to be a hopeless romantic from where I sit now because it doesn’t feel hopeless anymore.

But, it wasn’t a magic wand exactly. It was deliberate creation and if I can do it, you can too. I think there are rose colored glasses for everyone. Reach out and let me use my experience to guide you.

Things I love

This quote:
“It was one of those days when it’s a minute away from snowing and there’s this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that’s the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and… this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember… and I need to remember… Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in. ” – American BeautyNew Paragraph
These dogs:
That's right. I'm kind of the crazy dog lady. I really do want to be the person my dogs think I am, except Bella, the Frenchie. She doesn't like anyone. She's perpetually disappointed about pretty much everything. Nothing lives up to her standards. She's not spoiled. She was born this way. 

The Staffie, Miss Luna is our most recent rescue. I never thought I'd be a Pit Bull kind of gal, but Luna has converted me. That pic was taken at the shelter the moment she figured out she was going to go home with us. She came to our home after being a security dog. My goal is to let her lounge on furniture and nap all day. I think she's a dog that has earned a perpetual spa experience.  

The Old English Sheepdog is Cleo. She is her daddy's beauty queen. We recently gave her a serious haircut. It's a stylish pixie. Cleo loves it. My husband has a hard time. She's adorable with short hair too.  Cleo used to be a therapy dog. She's taking an extended vacation from her work. Watch a therapy dog at work in a hospital for very long and you'll understand why Cleo deserves a break.

The little black pug is King Kamehameha. He is a lot dog and love in a little body. I'm a pug girl. This is the first time in a long time I've only had one. King Kamehameha is loving me hard enough right now that I'm not rushing out for my next puppy. That's a pretty big feat! 

If you ever talk to me on the phone, or hear listen to an interview of mine, you will undoubtably hear one or all of these four snoring in the background. They can be loud! Just think of it as soothing and restful noises…

I literally have both the t-shirt and the tattoo!

I know it's probably a sacrilege to say, but Ziggy is my favorite Marley, even more so than his father.  

I have seen him in concert several times. I really do have a tattoo that says, "Love is my religion" - and it's true. That really does sum it up. 
These people:
This is my family. I have two boys and the world's best husband. They are the reason I am the luckiest person on the planet.   

My oldest son has always been a better person than I was a parent. He is an old soul who inspires me every day.

My youngest is the most shiny brand new soul I've ever met. That kid is having some much fun just being alive. I'm having fun watching it. 

I didn't believe in soulmates until I met mine. My husband is the best. Ask anyone who's ever met him. They'll tell you the same thing.
