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 watched this show and was stoked to see karen wearing her superhero necklace!
    hooray!

    I did see her wearing her necklace…actually, did she have two different ones ? It seemed like one of the shots of her, if I remember right, was from an earlier time and both times I saw the necklace, but it looked different in color….
    soooo cool !

    TWO superhero necklaces. One in the pre-recorded bit, and another one live. I did a lot of squeeling for you. Congratulations 🙂

    A friend just forwarded the “Sound of Music” video. I smiled the whole time. The children especially warmed my heart and gave me hope for a bright future! Yippee on the Superhero Necklace sighting!!!!!

    My grandma-in-law just told me about that train station video yesterday. I had happy-tears in my eyes the whole time! I love stuff like that too.

    you know, I innocently clicked on that video and watched for a minute before I just started sobbing. i’m so grateful for that you linked us!

    Just checking in, caught up after a few days away from reading. Oh my my.
    I am simply sending big fat love.

    That video made me cry!! It was so fun… thank you! And I’m glad to hear Ben (and you?) are feeling better. I’ve heard it said that coincidences are God’s way of remaining anonymous – sounds like She was offering His guiding hand that day! xox

    What a beautiful photo of the kids at the aquarium! It puts me in a state of hopes and dreams. It would make an absolutely *amazing* desktop wallpaper, too. Would you consider placing a large download file of this on your site for personal use? It would totally inspire me each and every day!

    I THOUGHT that was a superhero necklace! It looked so great with her outfit too! Yay! Congrats!

    Wow, you deserve to celebrate ~yay~
    What a horrific day you and your Ben had. Thank God you were there! And thank God for your superhero mom strength.
    P.S. I voted for HOPE.
    I constantly admire my sister Tracey’s necklace, it is wonderful! I am going to buy one for myself for my birthday.(Do I have to wait till July? sigh~)

    Oh I’m so glad Ben is feeling better… and I just happened to randomly turn on the TV while running at the gym–right when Karen was talking on Oprah and I immediately saw she was wearing your gorgeous SUPERHERO necklace. Lovely!

    That *IS* an awesome celebration list.
    By the way, when I saw Karen last in Houston, we talked about her necklace and the love in her eyes when she talked about you was very special.
