MY GILRFRIENDS RULE!


On the occasion of WOMEN"S MONTH, I decided to highlight some of my ladyfriends. These women are real. They make things happen. Their creativity, positivity, beauty, spiritual depth and faith in positive change are a constant source of inspiration to me. They've got what I call FLOW--access to their inner power and awareness of their mission. Stay tuned for more to come!
