I had a beautiful Thanksgiving with family that was topped off by a fun trip to Hood River. Be sure to stop by the Vista House at Crown Point if you head out that way. It’s well worth the view!

Allow a half day to stop at each of the pullouts as you circle the lake. Stop in the visitors center and listen to the 20 minute film about this most special lake. I’m so glad I’ve had a few road trips this year. Even a short trip to another location opens up my heart, […]

What participants have to say about my work

“This program feels great! I have renewed some good habits and started others that fit my new lifestyle as an empty nester.

I’m eating at home more and using my time more effectively. Thanks for the inspiration!”

“The topics, ideas, and support from everyone in the group has really helped me stay focused and motivated.  Each topic has helped me think through my habits and intentions in different ways. I am especially grateful for the stability of this group as it turns out to be a particularly challenging year – my circumstances have suddenly changed twice in the last 6 months. I find myself now in a major transition in life – moved to a new city to live with elderly parents and also just retired. My current life requires a level of patience and flexibility I would not have had. It’s been wonderful to have a such a diverse group with similar interests and intentions for life. Kathy does a great job of keeping it interesting, thought provoking, and positive. I really appreciate that.”

“My Best Year has helped me in several different ways: first being a part of a community and having support throughout the year has provided me with the structure I needed. Secondly, I appreciate everything Kathy provided to us, this directly impacted my growth in creating the life that I want. Third, this program gave me the confidence to take more risks, the knowledge I’m not alone, and the belief in myself to imagine possibilities. I didn’t envision this would impact me as it has and it has inspired me to go further than I thought I could.”
