It’s Time…

Angie Hope, New York City, Spiritual Reading 0 Comments

Dear Universe, Well, I did it again.  While I was in New York City over the long weekend I had the opportunity to meet with a spiritual reader and what can I say?  I went for it. I’m so glad I did.  The reader was kind-hearted while cutting to the chase—just my style—and throughout the hour-long experience I was stunned …

Feeling Lucky

Angie Luck 0 Comments

“If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.” ~Maya Angelou Dear Universe, I’ve been thinking about luck lately.  It started over a chat where someone was professing how unlucky she is: with romance, at work and in everyday, ordinary circumstances.  As she continued ticking off a litany of misfortunes to me, I encouraged her to …

Spread Love

Angie Love

Dear Universe, Well, it’s that one day of the year that people either love or hate. I get it.  The lonely feel lonelier.  The betrothed feel even more beloved than usual…usually.

In …

Girls Night In

Angie Cooking, Fun, Tarot

    Dear Universe, Sometimes it’s nice to have a quiet night in with the girls.  Watching movies, snacking on popcorn, eating late night ice cream and catching up on the latest news in each other’s lives is always a good time. But it’s been done.  We’ve seen Dirty Dancing so many times we know the exact place to pause to …

A Little Taste of London

Angie Fun, High Tea, London

Dear Universe, I have a confession.  I still miss London.  It’s kind of hard not to.  And it’s not only because the trip was so fantastic, but also because I am given daily nudges that poke at me and say, “Hey, Remember London?”  On television, coverage for the 2012 summer Olympics has already begun and every store I go seems to …
