Welcome Dear Friend,

I’m so glad you’re here. Your presence means that you’ve tackled the hard part: deciding it’s time to take steps toward living your most vibrant life. After the tragic and unexpected loss of my husband, Richard, I resolved to find hope in the midst of heartache. As I recovered, I ultimately discovered a new dream and a life filled with passion. You don’t have to walk alone, beautiful one. Won’t you come along with me as I guide you gently with all that I’ve learned and discovered? Together, let’s dare to dream again and answer the question, “What Now?”

xoxo kristine
