My, How Time Flies! Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

My, How Time Flies! Happy 1 Year Anniversary!

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun!


Today is the 1 year anniversary of this sweet blog that I created with the intention to share all that I have learned and know with ALL of YOU.  It has been such a fun and fantastic ride so far.  I have shared tons of recipes hoping to inspire you about how eating plant based foods can be healing and taste AMAZING at the same time, inspirational posts such as Thoughtful Thursdays (42 of those babies already!),  HOW TO videos (from food, rebounding exercise to hair gel) and other personal things with you that I never thought I would such as My Vulnerable Story Correlating Emotions and Health.

I care so much and am so passionate about sharing and teaching what I know and have learned (AND continuing to learn) on my journey so far with others, so that they know and feel that they are NOT alone.  That there IS guidance and resources so as to not be overwhelmed, but confident and assured in making better choices and informed decisions. I didn’t have anyone when I began my healing health journey in early 2010.  I had my own determination and intuition to heal myself along with a spunky personality to RESEARCH, EXPERIMENT, and DO IT mindset.  I have learned LOTS of what to do and what not to do.  I had people asking me “What are you doing?  You look great, lost weight, have more energy and LIFE in you.”  That is how the blog started.   This is how I have done it, continue to do it and implement new concepts and techniques into my life.  If you can take one thing away to improve the quality of your life and health – then my goal is met and my heart swells with delight that I assisted someone on their journey.  

I have had some beautiful people and new friends come into my life thru this blog that I never would have met otherwise and that is PRICELESS to me.  I feel so BLESSED!   I appreciate and respond to each comment and email that is lovingly sent my way.  YOU are important and matter to me.  Your concerns, questions, support and encouragement are so lovingly taken in with each word.    I love hearing from YOU and with special requests.  It encourages me to keep fresh and on my toes.  I just had a request from a new reader that would like for me to write a “Healing TONICS” ebook and said she would pay for it.  Thank you, dear!  I have been pondering it for some time, but didn’t think anyone would pay for it and here is someone saying “Do it and I will buy.”  OK, game on!  I am working on it!   See!  How can I be of service to YOU?  Let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

I had people requesting cooking classes, so I started offering Healthy Cooking Classes in my own home to teach others the beauty, ease, excitement and tastiness of plant based cooking.  It has become a HIT!

I never thought I would LOVE teaching these classes as much as I do – I DO!  ♥   I even started selling my Raw Chocolate Superfood Protein Bars upon many requests.  Again, I feel so blessed!

Since starting the blog a year ago, I have learned SO MUCH about myself, grown exponentially and learned to say NO to fears, YES to opportunities and miracles, change old beliefs, step outside of the box, open myself like never before, created healthy boundaries and limits AND have become more creative, loving, interactive and vulnerable (to myself and others).  What a beautiful and blessed year!  I am having such fun on this journey and with the blog.  I hope you are too.  YOU are what makes this blog thrive and spurs me on to SHARE, INSPIRE and INFORM.  Please do me a favor and share ME with others that could benefit.  My goal is to reach as many people as possible to educate about the healing power of plant based foods, inspiration, healing thru emotions and learning to MANIFEST their most amazing life.  By doing so, you are taking an active part in helping someone else along their health journey and in turn, it heals YOU.  Pretty cool, huh?!

Thank you SO, SO, SO, SO MUCH!   

I have LOTS of cool stuff coming your way down the road, but for NOW I want to give YOU an opportunity for a gift of celebration.

  1. Happy Anniversary!

    After meeting you, I knew you would have a cool blog. I have checked it daily ever since because I love your honesty and, of course, your recipes!

  2. Just wanted to say congratulations on your one year anniversary. I am sure there will be many more. I found you from a comment you made on another blog I read and have been a regular reader ever since. I have learned a lot and look forward to your post. I am not commenting to be entered in the giveaway as I am not on facebook but just wanted to let you know how awesome I think you are.

  3. Woohoo – Congratulations lovely lady. Wishing you many more years of success!
    P.S I re-potted my tomatoes (yes, still alive and still growing) and ate some of my own home-grown lettuce today 🙂

  4. Kibby,
    You have been such an inspiration to me! You posted on my first blog post and that is what brought me to your blog. I especially love reading your Thoughtful Thursday posts you always find such good information that I don’t have time to look for on my own. My husband and I love your sweet potato chocolate chip cookies and I make them often. I have also really appreciated you taking the time to answer my questions about health. You have such a personable blog, it is one of my top three favorites that I follow very closely. Someday I would love to come to a cooking class, they sound like fun! Keep up the great work-you are blessing many people!

I’m also looking there for inspiration (LOVE their posts, so beautiful, meaningful and inspirational) and recipe ideas. I am also looking to focus more on my plant-based diet and incorporate new foods into my meals (such as using dates, and a more variety of nuts and seeds).
