What started out as a trip to meet some friends of mine to celebrate the Fourth of July in Dana Point, has ended in one of the most inspiring 24 hours that I have had in a long time.

You never know who you may meet, just by turning up.

While I love to catch up with good friends and share experiences, I am a believer that 'everything happens for a reason' and if you open yourself up to possibilities, then you will enrich your life in more ways than you have ever imagined.
Fireworks is just the start...

Last night, I met a powerfully, inspiring woman by the name of Sandie Ward. She writes "The Food Stalker" blog where food and fashion collide. She has interviewed everyone who is anyone in food and fashion and her passion for life and sharing experiences is absolutely contagious. You could not be in the same room as this woman without her passion for life wiping off on you.

She is not only beautiful, but immensely talented with a zest for life that I have not seen in anyone for a long time. I cannot wait to get to know her better and to share business stories and blogs. 

Then, I met another wonderful woman, who is smart, hard working and a role model. She is an Immigration Lawyer in LA and originates from Toronto, Canada. Perfect timing for me as I am looking at my options with immigrating to America. She had just spent the day working while most other people in America were holidaying, and then drove an hour or so to join the party. She didn't drink, but instead soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed interesting conversation with other guests. She was completely understated but had a presence that no one can miss.

And the third, is a gorgeous former Rockette, with a loving husband and two delightful children - epitomizing what the perfect marriage really looks like. She has done it all and at 33 years old, she has been a 'star' and continues to work in modelling and acting, while having a loving marriage with two little girls who light up any room. A picture of happiness. Something very inspiring to see.

As I head back to work in LA, the smile cannot be wiped from my face. Life is for living and sharing experiences with people. New and old - people can enhance your life if you let them.

Happy Independence Day America. I am so glad to share it with such wonderful people.
