It’s our 2nd wedding anniversary today.

I am the luckiest girl around.

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.

    Congratulations! That is a lovely photograph – and the quote is great. I’m 20 and sometimes I worry about finding the right guy, finding the ‘One’, especially growing up in a culture of beautiful people and watching romantic comedies… It always makes me think I have to go better, find perfection in male form …
    But that quote seems to put it in persepctive. It’s simple – if you’re happy together…
    🙂 Have a great day!

    How utterly ironic. My husband and I were married one day before you (magical wedding in Temecula, just the two of us!) AND have that exact StoryPeople plaque in our Tucson house.
    Congratulations to two beautiful people!

    Happy Anniversary! Just think, you’ll always have those gorgeous photos to remember that day…and so many more gorgeous photos (that you’ve taken) to remember subsequent everyday experiences that have, hopefully, blessed your life with as much joy as you seem to be feeling in that wedding photo. Blessings to you both. May this 3rd year bring you some of your heart’s wildest dreams…

    Congrats to you and your groom. 🙂 A lovely couple and wonderful quote. My own bride and I just marked our 16th anniversary at the start of the month.
    Peace, joy and happiness.

    Andrea, happy anniversary! I love the joy beaming from your wedding photograph, and how you link the lovely quote to the sentiment you hold for your husband. When I first fell for my husband a friend of mine, weathered and street-wise, crinkled up into a smile as my husband and I were silly-eyed for each other, and mused, “ain’t love grand?” Yup, it is.
    To the poster who was married in Temecula, I was married there nearly 10 years ago, and lived there for several years as well!

    all ya need is love…
