Stephenie’s Musings


Around Here (#WDS2015 Edition)

I spent the last 10 days in Portland, OR at my all time favorite event, with three of my best friends. It was basically the best ten days ever. This was my third summer in town for World Domination Summit, an event I can only describe as amazing and, “you just have to be there.” It’s a […]

People around me have noticed how “happy” I’ve been lately and I can 100% say that I have never felt more happy, authentic, confident, and healthy as I do now. I am so grateful to Stephenie for helping me begin this journey of self discovery.
