really good things*


Some really good things:

Maggie’s post celebrating what she’s learned from Oprah. Check out the comments too… so much wisdom in there!

If you somehow missed this, you won’t be sorry you gave a listen. It is one of the SWEETEST things I have heard in a long time.

If you ever wanted to invest in Danielle LaPorte’s Firestarter Kit (now called the Spark Kit), today is the day! It’s her birthday and it’s a pay-what-you-can special! Happy Birthday Danielle!

On Sunday I went to a FABULOUS wedding. It started out innocently enough, in a small Greek Orthodox church in the Mission in San Francisco. But afterwards, we were all invited to participate in a 3- hour bicycle procession through the streets of San Francisco to the Cliff House for the reception. The groom was Gary Fisher who you might know if you have ever owned a mountain bike. (He is one of the inventors of the mountain bike) There was a wide range of options for every generation that attended the wedding– pedicabs, electric bikes and regular bicycles and let me tell you, there is nothing better than bicycling through the city with a hundred new friends in the sunshine wearing tuxes and fancy dresses! One of the highlights of my life for sure. I beamed the whole way and kept shouting, “This is the best day ever!!”

And speaking of weddings + good things, Matt and I were married 8 years ago today in Santa Barbara. I know I was saying the same thing that day as well, “This is the best day EVER!” There were no bicycles but there was a parade just the same. We had our guests play/bang on musical instruments in a kind of raucous and joyous cacophany of sound as they strolled up to the ceremony site. I’ll never forget it. Maybe for our ten year anniversary we’ll get on bikes! Happy Anniversary Matt! There’s no one better for me than you.

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 also wanted to buy the Firestarter kit on special, but it’s not working. If Danielle is checking these comments, happy birthday and please help 😉

    Makes me realize that I’ve been reading your blog since your wedding! Congratulations to you both! I went back through some of your archived posts because I remembered that you’d posted photos somewhere – found ’em. You look like you’re having as much fun now as you did then. I’m sure it’s hard, of course, but the point I think I’m trying to make is that when you’re happy for yourselves and are surrounded by people that are happy for you then it’s all good…

    Happy Anniversary! For some reason, I had it down in my calendar as the 26th. I must have screwed up one year when I transfer from calendar to calendar. We hope you had a wonderful day!

    That sounds so very incredible! What a fabulous way to celebrate.
    As an aside Andrea, I’ve been wanting to send you a message to thank you (and Jen, who I will also send a message to) for the amazing things that are happening to me post Mondo Beyondo. So much I could say, but I won’t snafu your comments.

    I use to ride Gary Fisher’s bikes when I raced mountain bikes in college. It was bright green with no suspension. Looks like the wedding season is upon us, less than I a month away I say ‘I do’.
