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.

    Andrea — Small parks are showing up all around the Portland (Oregon) metro area. This movement is so exciting – it has been great fun watching it evolve over the years through your blog. Don’t you just love it when good things spread and are shared with everyone? I am making it a point to visit a strip park today.

    Dude. If there was ever a city in the world that needed a Parking Day, that city is Houston. If your husband is ever interested in bringing this south, LET ME KNOW.

    Saw this this morning and it reminded me of Parking Day:
    Grassing that street (while leaving the sidewalks intact for pedestrian and bike traffic) would be so great eh?
