    A Dream Come True Author Unknown

    In the middle of the night;I awaken.Dreams on my mind;Love in the make'n.Was it the kiss;moisture on my lips.Or maybe the goosebumpsfrom the caress of your fingertips?Hear the poundingof my heart beat.Love surroundingthe night in heat.Never fails, my dreams of you;To awaken by love that is true.I don't mind my nights awake;when it's dreams of you that I make.Those dreams are made-up ofwhat lies inside.A swollen heart of love;You're my joy and that I pride.I can't think of a better reason why;You stole my heart,You caught my eye.And so long as I have you;I have a dream come true.

    Letter from the Editor

    The summer months are filled with birthdays with my Flothe family. My mother-in-law, Cheryl, celebrated hers with my niece, Elise, at the end of June. My sister-in-law, Laurie, celebrated in July along with my son, Jake, and nephew, Corbin. The funny thing is that Cheryl and Elise are one day apart in June along with Jake and Corbin in July. I've seen this occur in many families, some have all their birthdays in one month of the year. I'd like to think it has to do with the connection we have to each other. What are your thoughts? Do you have family with close together birthdays? Leave a comment via Social Media...I'd love to hear your story!

    Neiman Marcus has a great article on their website suggesting there are ways to wear white year round. You can lighten it up with delicate lace. Pair white with over-the-top patterned layers or wear a complete head-to-toe white outfit. Add some bold, trompe l'oeil prints and vivid color pops. And don't forget to wear some stylish shoes to add excitement to any outfit. Blogger Simona from Florence, Italy

    Q: How can I Improve my Life without getting burnt out?A: Do Something Simple Every Day

    The concept that little things matter is a somewhat basic idea. When you face a choice, you can take a simple positive action. Or you can take a simple negative action. Simple actions, repeated over time, will determine the life you will lead.

    The little things that lead to success are easy to do, and easy not to do. They can be as simple as being impeccable with your word, having a positive mental attitude, and always doing your best. The steps can be very small -- as small as choosing a different response in the moment.

    You will find that small actions compound over time. For example, if you exercise for an hour a day, you won't see much difference after a couple of days or even a week. But after a couple of months you will notice a big difference. A little effort each day will result in huge rewards over time. If you read just ten pages of a good book every day, it might not seem like a lot. But after one year, you will have read more than two dozen 150-page books! It is the same with learning another language, playing a musical instrument, or improving at a sport. A little practice each day will result in huge rewards over time.

    Action: What simple activities can you do today to become the person you want to be a year from now?

    Salmon is a favorite dish in Alaska as so many Alaskans catch their limits over the summer. This is my favorite way to cook salmon and I know youll love it, too!

    Ingredients:1 pound salmon fillets1/3 cup soy sauce1/4 cup brown sugar1/4 cup olive oil2 teaspoons lemon pepper2 cloves garlic, minced

    Directions:1. Whisk soy sauce, brown sugar, olive oil, lemon pepper, and garlic in a shallow dish. Lay salmon fillets in dish, skin side up in. Cover and marinade in the refrigerator 4-8 hours or overnight.2. Preheat oven broiler and set rack around 6 inches from heat. Remove salmon from marinade and arrange on a baking sheet, skin side down. Discard marinade.3. Cook the salmon under the broiler until lightly browned and the flesh flakes easily with fork, about 7-10 minutes. Allow salmon to rest 5 minutes before serving.4. Note: I like to add several tablespoons of lemon or lime juice to the marinade and reserve some marinade to baste the salmon with as it broils. The skin should just peel off the fillets after theyre cooked!

  • 5by Nicole FlotheI met my friend, Carolyne Rodriguez, at one of the Social Media Classes I offer at Calistoga Cafe. She has an amazing personality and we started working together to put a social media plan in place for her successful Lifestyle and Coaching business.

    Carolyne helps educate people on how to get into shape and make a difference in their lives with Isagenix products. She also participates in many fundraising events with her team. With their generous hearts they've contributed to the Uniform Project their church is undertaking to help outfit 450 kids with school uniforms. For more information visit the donation website.

    Recently she was honored to be included in Think and Grow Rich For Women, a book by Sharon Lechter. I'm looking forward to reading the book and her story. The book is for all women seeking to create their ideal lives.

    On Carolyne's Facebook page,, you will find inspirational and motivational quotes, links to her latest seminars, and health tips. She'll also be interviewed soon on David Wood's Podcast The Amplified Network. Make sure to check it ou
