I started the company Pura Vida in 2012 after cold turkey quitting one of my jobs. I remember searching for a name that would fit the vision of this project's mission. As I reflect, I don't recall how the name came to be but it somehow stuck.
What does Pura Vida mean to me? Literally, it means the "pure life" in Spanish. A life full of clean eating, fruits and vegetables. Healthy, organic foods and lots of nutrients that will help you body be free of dis-ease. The pure life was a process of waking up from a well rested night's sleep and meditating in the morning to understand your subconscious self's needs. To breathe deeply and feel your body and be grateful for it. To exercise your muscles and allow them to move and feel alive.
To find purity in everything that you do and believe in.
Pura Vida has a uniqueness to it that it can be tailored to whatever it is or whoever it is that you are.
So today I ask myself, what is my pure life?
My pure life is calm and gentle to my body. It listens to my gut when it tells me to call my mom and tell her how awesome it was for her to play classical music to me while I would paint in the kitchen.
It allows me to give and feel love freely. It does not judge others because it does not know the path they are on.
It sees beautiful things everywhere and takes the time to experience new places.
That is pura vida. Guiding people to find their own "pure life" is my mission. It is a journey. And I am delighted.

"It's like, it's like your rib cage is a jail cell, holding all that love in. So, I want you to take your fist, take your fist, and grab your heart and hold it in the air, hold that love in the air and open your fingers, one at a time if you need to, and let that love out. " #loveart

I don't think I have ever felt as at home as as I do here. I think back on all of the cities, the apartments and places I have lived. I used come back from California wishing that I lived there. This time I came back craving these mountains and this awesome,alive community. Home is where your heart is. Mine really is here. #colorado #grassaintgreener #wineaintsweeter #welcomehomehunny
Life, out of the depths, will clarify things for you only if you wish to see your challenges as an opportunity of growth. Sometimes we need rain. #itstimetogrowtoday

The Hollywood shows were amazing. Unfortunately there was a threat in the middle of the first show that had my heart in my throat. The interesting thing as I reflect was that my fear was actually for @bobweir And @deadandcompany . And my fellow neighbors. I truly felt it for my life last. These lessons are learned through the message of this music. Despite it all, the energy from this crowd was peaceful and alive. I am so thankful for finding this music and for my two friends who helped me get there. #pleasespreadpeace #wavethatflagwaveitwideandhigh #grateful ✌️
I finally made it home #homeiswherethedeadis #grateful
