"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom" -- Anais Nin    Begin Again: The Spring Equinox & Kim Snyder's Glowing Green Smoothie I’ve been yearning for spring since the last leaves fell from the scrub oak trees outside my bedroom window. Each fall I notice Utah’s native scrub oaks seem to want to hold on to their leaves longer than the aspens and maples. On the flip side, scrub oaks are one of the latest...

Relationships, Short Story / 14.02.2017

  We all have a tale about how we met our significant other for the first time. What is your love story? Was it love at first sight? Was it slow and unforeseen? Are you childhood friends or neighbors or roommates? Did you meet on a plane, in a coffee shop or at work? We all have a love story. This is mine…….. I remember the day I met my future husband. I rarely remember dates; in fact I still forget my own anniversary. But Tuesday, April 3, 2001 stands out...

Salt Lake City / 31.01.2017

The first time I had a cup of coffee I was 21 years old and it was at Salt Lake Roasting Company. What I remember is the cafe felt like a humming library; utilitarian in presence - welcoming to skiers, students, business men and opera goers alike. It was and still has a comfortable, yet exotic environment. Salt Lake Roasting Company is progressive in its conscientious choice of beans, like shade-grown, sustainably harvested and single-origin varieties, yet old-fashioned in its presentation of coffee and colorful handmade pastries and cakes,...

Just Say Yes  Since having my astrological reading I have been inspired to bring the words and vision in my head to life. I literally started the day after my reading--I collaborated on my original logo and website design and art directed my photo shoot, something I’ve always wanted to do. The colorful pictures on my website are from that session, which was reposted on Instagram by Refinery 29 and fashion and textiles designer Trina Turk. I planned the shoot with a super talented photographer friend named Nina Tekwani who...

Astrology, Motivation / 10.01.2017

What is Big Magic? It’s that voice in the back of your head that wakes you up at 3 am, the wolfing hour, whispering to pursue that idea you had. It’s that song playing at exactly the right time and with just the right message. It’s bumping into someone unexpectedly at Whole Foods, bringing an opportunity you were hoping to find.  It is kismet. It is destiny. It’s written in the stars, and it’s also the name of Elizabeth Gilbert’s new book. I’m sure you heard of her international best...

Biography, Motherhood / 21.12.2016

   Things I said to myself this morning:   7 AM 1.  I should have meditated longer 2.  I’m on Instagram too much 3.  My focus while meditating wasn’t very good. I couldn’t even count from 1 to 10 in my head one freakin’ time 4.  I should have given my boys more fruit to eat for breakfast 5.  I forgot their vitamins and we are going on vacation and their immune system has to be strong and if I just gave them their vitamins everything would be fine. 6.  I hope the dinner reservation I made...

Biography / 13.12.2016

Welcome to My Rainbow: My life in words has a soundtrack,  if you have Spotify listen to it HERE.  Otherwise scroll down to play it. I grew up in a suburb outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and went to an all-girls Catholic school the entirety of my school age years. I was dying to go to college for one thing: BOYS. Let’s just say that I got around quite nicely at the University of Delaware, and I don’t mean in a car. I wish I could tell you I played...

Style, Travelogue / 08.12.2016

From my City Weekly Column, Shop Girl. Hippie-chic shopping in Mexico I'm on vacation on the Right Coast, and my first stop is the Hamptons. This Long Island enclave is synonymous with New York City pretention a la Gwyneth Paltrow. From the first time I visited last year, I was hooked. Although I'm more of a Montauk kind of girl—I like the ruggedness of its beaches and the isolation of the community—I'll take East Hampton for a day of shopping. In the Hamptons, you can see Beyoncé riding her bike...
