My first love

My first love was named Albie. I met him the day that he and his friend Scott dared each other to wear only bikini underwear and make phone calls from the phone booth in front of the local movie theater.

He had bleached white hair, surfed and skimboarded (I grew up in Santa Cruz) and sang in a punk band.

He was outrageous and creative and I adored him.

He took me to the prom in an ice cream truck. He actually hired the ice cream man to chauffeur us around for the night. I’ll never forget the feeling of being piled on laps amidst the popsicles and ice cream sandwiches…

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    I had a friend who hired the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile for the prom! Personally, I’d take ice cream over hot dogs any day.

    Now that’s romance! Fun, quirky, and memorable is the way to go.

    Awesome. I met my first “love” when I was in the third grade. He walked me home from school every day and I pretended to be so scandalized when he said “heck”–but really I liked it. Those were the days.
