Announcing A Healthy U Conference!

a healthy u conference

I am so excited to share some exciting news with you today!

For the last 4 months myself as well as my fantastic friends Cassandre and Kimberly have been planning an event for women focused on sisterhood, wellness and healthy living. When Cassandre approached me about this amazing idea, I was sold. In NYC there are a million fitness classes but not a lot of people are talking about nutrition and wellness. We decided to combine the two for an amazing one day event!

  4. Would love to go, but it is my nephew’s communion that day and the night before I have to also go to my husband’s soccer coaching dinner and dance at the local country club here. An then Sunday, of course is Mother’s Day and Monday is Kevin’s Birthday. Seriously that is a weekend that I just don’t seem to have a moments peace and kind of exhausted just sharing all on my plate. Hope you ladies do this again in the future though and would hope to be able to attend :)
