The Hive Tour & Your Art Programs

In our quest to eventually open up a center here in Jax and preparing for a road trip around the country I need to speak to all of YOU! I really want to talk with people who are either running mentor programs, currently mentoring someone or people who have benefited from mentoring, especially in the arts field.
Within the next year we (hubby, myself and the kiddos still at home) would love to AND plan to be on the road traveling cross country and meeting you all face to face, bringing your stories the life and love they deserve and showing the world how important our arts community is as well as how easily you can help keep it thriving! We know our youth needs direction and mentoring in the art fields can help be that needed outlet but also let us all pass down that passion and beauty that is art whether it be in music, painting, poetry, culinary and more.
Through my blog and our other social pages we will show you our travel, allow upcoming artists to record in our booth, have a mobile mural showcasing artists coast to coast, invite chefs and young moguls on board for interviews, speak at festivals, schools and more. The Hive Tour is us connecting each community, spotlighting the beauty and soul of every city and our main focus before we come back to Jacksonville, FL to open a center where everyone creative can come in and have a place to just be them.
We know there are centers and programs all over America that help our youth cultivate their skills in the arts and we want to know about them, grab some interviews, share your info and let the world know one by one how YOU are impacting our future generations TODAY! If you currently mentor someone, run a mentoring or youth program or have benefited from being in one PLEASE reach out to me. I want to know your story from right here in Jax to Seattle to Houston, NYC and every small town in between.  I would love to highlight you right here on my blog and then in the near future perhaps we can come through your town on the tour and work together on even more.
Email me your story ❤

More info to come about the tour later.. I will update periodically. Anyone looking to participate in the tour planning or process please email!

My Mother's Day Nightmare

May 13, 2018.. Mother's Day.

I worked an event.. I am always working.. helping coordinate a yearly brunch for my friend Chef X I was gone from about 8am until we got home about 6pm. I had been in communication with the two kids still at home throughout the day. They are 14 and 15.. generally mature and great at keeping in touch with me. Until 7pm that evening. Then 2 and a half hours went by where we had absolutely no idea where my daughter was. 14 years old and it was all silence. More than a few minutes is already scary, this was unlike ever before.

I am a mother to five, yes five, amazing kids. They are far from perfect, but I was far from a perfect parent, we managed. Being in the arts and entertainment industry there is sometimes a fine line between what is private and what I talk about. Most of the time though I know I am not alone. I know there are other moms, parents, loved ones who are experiencing some of the things I go through and talking about it helps. It helps me ge…

Turning 21, Disney and a Girls Trip We Won't Forget

I just got back from a five day vacation to Orlando... While there is so much about this trip we will keep to ourselves because it was all so special I did want to briefly talk about it as a whole.

About six months ago my best friend in Virginia hit me up. Her oldest daughter was turning 21 in July and she really wanted to do something special for her. My oldest had just turned 21, who also happens to be her Goddaughter, and our girls had known each other since birth as we were there for the birth of each other's firstborns. Her idea was to come down to Orlando, stay at a nice resort or hotel and have the four of us hang out a few days at the pool, maybe a bar or two and hit up an amusement park.

This sounded amazing and it was before the car accident my youngest was in, as well as a few other things to recently hit our family. When the accident happened she asked me if we should cancel. I asked her please not to, I knew by the time it came around I was really going to need a few …

Pika Tacos: 6 Steps to Dinner

I post some pics of these from time to time and almost always people ask me what the heck they are.. I have tweeted how to make them before but I thought why not make a blog and fill you guys in on all the yummy details. Since being diagnosed allergic to gluten in October 2017 I have found it VERY hard to eat. Yes just simply eat. Gluten is in EVERYTHING! So from time to time I'll share some fun recipes you can make from home that are super safe because I break out in hives with even the tiniest amount of cross-contamination and I want to help anyone out there struggling with the same!

This is called Pika Tacos because a friend of mine named Pika used to make something similar after making spaghetti. She'd make a HUGE pot of sauce and when all the noodles ran out she would make tacos with the leftover sauce. I have not found a safe spaghetti noodle I like yet and I love these so I just skip the whole making spaghetti part, my kids and hubby don't even mind, and go straight…
