Thank you for being here! My name is Kirsten, pleased to meet you. I cook, garden, write, throw parties, daydream, travel as often as possible, and take long walks through nature and my beloved city. I actively pursue the things that make me happy, and waste no energy on things that don’t. Living in Los Angeles is fantastic fun. I love fancy restaurants and old-man bars, museums and street art, laughing and dancing with abandon. I learn about simple ways to improve my health and my impact on the environment. Want more? I tweet at orangesavocados and have a Facebook page.
I have aways had a keen interest in the healing arts. I have studied several, some with names that many people have never heard, like ayurveda and reiki. I am a reiki master and have a thriving practice out of my home. If that is something you would like to know more about, I invite you to visit my website, Lighthearted Soul. I also write the Lighthearted Soul Blog, a collection of words and images that inspire balance, natural healing remedies, my thoughts about reiki and how to live with an open heart.
I am over the moon for this guy, who makes occasional appearances on this blog. He is my partner in most of these adventures and deserves credit for many of the photos. Among his many virtues, the Husband is a charismatic storyteller, makes phenomenal charcuterie, and can get a stain out of anything.
