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.

    AAWWWWW…. So cute! I love that 1 little wayward petal sticking up. Such a fun photo. It makes me smile just looking at it. I think I may need to make a trip,(someday)to S.F. to see all these wonderful flowers in Golden Gate Park. I definitely think I need to invest in a great camera like yours. Nikon coolpix 4500? right?? I love your photos!!! Thanks for sharing.

    I looked and I didn’t understand, though I thought it was cute. So I came back the next day and looked again, but still, I just couldn’t see ET.
    Today, I come for one last look and presto! The finger! I get it! You’ve made me very happy 🙂

    Yes….this little flower is absolutely adorable…i totally love it. I’m ecstatic that others see the beauty and “cuteness” in nature that so often make me gasp and laugh! Thank you so much!
