Dreams really do come true…

Dreams really do come true…
My mom Leba always encouraged me to DREAM BIG, and DREAM OFTEN. With this fertile environment nourishing me from a young age, I did just that.

For the last ten years I have had one persistent dream – to tell my story. My clients, family and friends all echoed that desire.
I celebrate how we all have a story to tell; we have all lived life, risen above the pain, moved on to bigger and better things – we transform, awaken and truly live.

Well, my time has finally arrived. The time to tell my story. This decade-long dream is finally becoming a reality, because I’m busy writing my book.

Next to giving birth to my two boys, Alexander and Sascha, this has to be the next-best birth I’ve experienced so far. I can’t vouch for the pain as yet I’m still in the early stages; excited about being pregnant with this precious dream. It also looks like it won’t take longer than the prescribed 9 months…

As a true believer and practitioner of collaboration, my book will be another extension of the wonder of co-creating. I am blessed to have Fox & Raven’s Marius du Plessis onboard as my publisher, and I am inspired daily by the publisher’s confidence in me. My art director and food stylist is Janis Anne Hopley Lane and my photographer is Dirk Visser – both masters of their work. Such an amazing team! I’m so proud and honoured to be working with them.

So, my dear RAW friends, I’m thrilled to declare the pregnancy! Our plan is to launch three mini eBooks over the next couple of months so that you can get a ‘taste’ of what the book will be about. And then, in April 2015, The Book, the Dream, will be Birthed … I mean Launched.

Thank you all for your support. Please keep me in your prayers over the next five months as I write, gestate and create my DREAM.
