Yes we did.
We tied one on. And you can see the whole thing!
**Warning: you cannot laugh quietly when hanging out with “The Scarf Lady”, so if you’re in a place where you have to stifle, you may want to save this video for later!
As you’ll see, Janet Kassir is a glowing source of positive energy and scarf-tying expertise, using her talents to empower all around her. For these reasons and more, she is my choice for February 2014’s “Mindful Maven” here at Carlaquarius.com
And because she ALWAYS over delivers, you’ll have access below to her free PDF.
Now my favorite parts of this interview involve the spilling of some “wine” and some overall shenanigans. But. . . it’s not what you think! . . .Read More
Angels! My BIGGEST GIVEAWAY YET is found in this post.
But first, I must tell you. . .
Yes, that would be REALLY fun, but. . .
Basically, it would be a short-lived little party for one. And I’d have to come back down to Earth at some point, right? :)
Plus, it wouldn’t give me skills for my blog & biz that could last a lifetime.
And that’s what makes me happier than flying unicorns right now!
I’m throwing a real party – with like minded and INCREDIBLE blog rockstars in the making – who WILL learn blog & biz skills that last!
Most importantly. . . I’m GIVING AWAY 3 SCHOLARSHIPS!
See the GIVEAWAY details below, my stellar friend.
But hurry, to WIN a free ride, you must act quickly.
The course to transform your blog into the online party of the week – every week.
Here’s how to WIN . . . (read more)Read More

Little Punxsutawney Phil was pretty adorable this weekend, but he’s a bit of a trickster, don’t you think?
I had definitely wanted Spring!
I know, you can’t always get what you want.
And speaking of wants, I have a question for YOU:
When you were little, did you ever fall prey to this dirty little trick?
. . .Contentedly walking along, you happen upon a friend, or maybe a sibling, munching away on some candy, or other yummy treat.
They notice you eyeing up their little snack and offer, “You want some?”
“Sure, thanks!” you sigh eagerly.
And then, they deliver the punchline: “Well, how does it feel to want?”
Well. . . it’s a bummer at first, and hopefully your friend is just kidding and proceeds to share a little bite.
But you know, wanting isn’t so bad, is it? We get a lot accomplished when we’re working toward something we want. . .Read More
I’m often blown away by your sincerity.
Yesterday, I turned another year older. And certainly another year bolder.
And YOU gave me all I could have wanted! From your facebook messages, to special deliveries, to home-made meals and chats and treats. . . You are AMAZING friends and I love you!
And here all I did was turn 37 with no effort on my part. It just kind of happened. ;)
Because of you and for many reasons, I pretty much LOVE my special day. And I’m sending you all those beautiful wishes right back! <3

So I happen to share my bday with one of my FaVoRiTe CoMpOsErS. . . Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. (Or “Voolfie”, if you’ve seen the movie Amadeus. And you must!)
Mozart just turned 258, so I’m feeling pretty young!
And I am young. Really, I’m just a baby.
So are you.
Yep, I just called you a baby.
Why am I calling you names when you’ve been so sweet to me all month!? . . .Read More
You often tell me we’ve connected. You gush in your replies that we share impassioned interests, similar music tastes, philosophies, and joys of life. It makes me smile. Right into my heart. Because you’re my peeps. And I’m gushing right back!
Friends, I don’t want you to miss this, and you only have 2 DAYS LEFT to jump in!
What is it about Shimmy Mob that brings dancers (and non-dancers) flocking back to shake what their Momma gave them each year?
I asked returning Erie Shimmy Mobbers on facebook to give us a one-word answer to that question. Their responses gave me goosebumps. Here’s just a few:
Friendships. Adventure. Intrigue. Bonding. Amazing. Fun.
So in the blog this week, I asked 3 women to elaborate.
You might want to grab the tissues. These mobsters speak from the heart. . .
“I started dance for several reasons and I had never thought about a root cause being domestic violen...Read More
So have you ever felt vulnerable?
What made you feel that way? Did you like it? Was it fun?
I’m guessing probably not. Or so you thought. . .
But what happened after the vulnerability passed?
There’s no right or wrong answer, but I hope you felt somehow more secure afterward. Perhaps the feeling made you work harder, love deeper, dream bigger, or even grow stronger, for next time.
Last week, I put my goals and dreams in print for my whole city to read.
I felt vulnerable when I saw it all in black and white!

But it was a fun kind of vulnerable. Almost like a challenge...Read More
You are one AmAZiNgLY magnificent being, you know that?
So magnificent, that, on this New Year’s Eve, I’d like to raise a toast to you. Within this toast are 3 healthy doses of Nostalgia, crafted from the joys of this extremely useful sentiment.
I believe that nostalgic recollections are not conjured by our minds to make us wish we could “go back” to the way things once were, but instead, to emphasize that: (Click to Tweet!)
NOSTALGIA DOSE #1:
Watch my quick video featuring POWERFUL IMAGES by some of Erie’s top photographers, and travel with me to a place of inspiration before completing #2 and #3 below.
