I made an announcement that we were breaking for lunch which I had prepared with “love”. I wanted to make sure our meal was a high nutrient rich meal and I have to say “mission accomplished” so my heart was singing again knowing my peeps were adding wellness tools to their bodies today. Unbeknown to me my husband had different plans. My husband Frank has been my unwavering supporter of every WISH I have ever had in my life. We have been together for 29 years and this year would be our 25th anniversary. I saw him in the back of the church as he slipped into his suit jacket which he had not worn that day. I said wow he has the tan suit on that I love him in. Wait he has a suit on, he didn’t have that on before. I guess he wants to look nice for our Lunch and Learn downstairs as we eat lunch is what went through my mind. Then I saw him grab the mic and start talking. For those of you that have the pleasure to know Frank know when Frank speaks you listen. He isn’t a chatterbox like me…. LOL. So he started to talk about how we weren’t quite breaking for lunch just yet and that he had something to say. He talked about his love for me and how this year was our 25th wedding anniversary, and he started to talk and walk down the isle. I sat down at the first seat and he came up to me while talking about renewing his vows to me.
I thought how sweet of him and of course I would do that. I thought that was his announcement and that we would plan to do that in the months ahead. Well Frank had other plans. I turned around towards the front of the church and there stood our cousin who performed other marriage ceremonies. At that point I was STUNNED and SPEECHLESS which those that know me isn’t easy to do. OMG this was happening right now, we were getting married TODAY. Today on the day my book was birthed I was getting married again to the LOVE of my Life, My biggest supporter of my WISHES coming true. I had always WISHED to renew our vows and here is was making them come true. You can watch the ‘engagement and wedding’ on the video below to be our Virtual Guests at our Wedding. The day was already EPIC and now our EPIC Love was being shared with our guests, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house including mine. I kept thinking “ I need my valor young living essential oil” to hold it together but realized I just needed to take in the moment and let the tears of JOY flow. I also was thinking “Thank God I drank my Ningxia Nitro as I sure needed the sustained energy to ensure I had the strength and energy in my cells to stay standing as my who body was trembling with excitement. I looked into my loves eyes and said “You look hot” as this is what I said to him 25 years ago to help him stop trembling and helped him not pass out. He laughed and Christian started the ceremony.
Christian let the audience know that Frank gave him the original wedding vows that we used, that Frank and I wrote the entire wedding ceremony and gave them to our pastor and deacon to perform our ceremony. Boy I WISH they were here too with us so I asked Christian if I could acknowledge them right then and there. So Buddy and Nick thank you for marrying us 25 years ago.
Buddy was my principal and teacher and Nick was Frank’s principal of his school and deacon in the church he grew up in.
Christian continued with our vows and at one point I couldn’t even remember which hand was which, my head was spinning. After the ceremony our guests applauded when Christian announced I now pronounce you Husband and Wife… Again. Please Watch my surprise Wedding as my words don’t do it justice as to how amazing and EPIC the day was.

This beautiful Essential Oil Jewelry piece called “Branching Out” was custom designed by jewelry designer Krista Lynn Eggering for my Healthy Business, Healthy You Toolbox Book Launch. One lucky winner was the proud owner of this at my book launch party.
Beautiful stretchy bracelet embraced with a Lava Rock and 6mm Moss Agate beads. Fits 6 1/2″ to 7″ wrists comfortably.
Essential Oil Jewelry is embraced with either a lava rock bead or terra cotta bead which when rubbed with your favorite essential oil it acts as a personal diffuser for a couple of days. Then you can reapply. Lift your senses with your favorite essential oil and embrace the vibrations of the gemstones beaded into each jewelry creation. I believe that by having both the energy of gemstones along with the scent of the oils…and you as the wearer being open to the vibrational energy of both…you can tap into your personal power within to create and enhance mind, body, spirit harmony.
Moss Agate is a stone of new beginnings. If you can visualize your desires than you can manifest them…Moss Agate embraces the vision.
Moss Agate is also a stone of wealth, attracting abundance in all forms. In the workplace, it draws new business and gradual expansion, increasing prosperity over time. It is good for small businesses and the self-employed.
Krista Lynn Eggering will be one of my guests I will be interviewing during my W.I.S.Hing WELLness Online Retreat that will take place April 1st – April 30th. So be sure to REGISTER and stay tune to be able to hear Krista’s story of how she left a stable corporate profession to living her dream as a Jewelry Designer and Spiritual Facilitator.
I am excited for this month of April as so many amazing things are happening in my own Author Journey as well as my SOLOpreneur Author/Writer clients journey to authorship. I am happy to announce since writing several books in my ebook series “Healthy Business, Healthy You Toolbox”, this is the ebook that will go live first in the series “Vision Boards Made Easy for the SOLOpreneur“. If you want to be part of the book launch and get Email notifications, please sign up here . I also created a “Live with Laura” Facebook group and Page so feel free to join there to help support me.
1st E-book in the Series
I have been busy getting all the other pieces and parts that go together after the book is actually written. My author/writer clients have been enjoying seeing the process LIVE as each piece and part unfolds. I am happy to inspire them by showing them all the “how to’s” and let them see this is an attainable goal for them too. Many of my author clients tell me the writing part was easy for them, whereas the publishing, marketing, advertising, list building, etc is the part that makes their hands sweat. For me this is the easy part and the writing was the hard part for me, its getting easier with practice and educating myself to have the best tools which has made it easier. One of my goals when teaching my clients, is to give them the BEST tools to make the process of all the things that come afterwards EASY.
If I get to work with an author from the beginning when they are still writing their book, I tell them they need to work on their marketing plan NOW and not wait until their book is finished. This is one of those Author TIPS that I hope you are reading and having an aha moment and giving you this VALUABLE author advice now. Trust me it makes all the difference.
I am also working this month on my Print Book Goals and am taking a 30 Day Kindle to Print challenge. This is going to be great to finally get to see my BIG book in actual print that so many of my clients have wanted for so long. Many of my clients lost their computers and businesses in Superstorm Sandy the hurricane that devastated New Jersey and New York communities. I was teaching the last class of the 30 Day Transformational Challenge course which was online and by telephone and the day the storm hit. I offered several more live classes since Sandy however many of my Sandy Survivors still don’t have the funds to replace their computer, so having a print version of this book will really be a great tool for them. I am hoping to continue to fund raise and raise the money needed to be able to gift a copy to a Sandy Survivor.
This month I also start to teach another group of authors/writers in the Author Toolbox 30 Day Transformational Challenge. So many of my clients wanted an authors only class so when I give examples I’m speaking to them. I love these groups of writers/authors that want their message to get out into the world and make a difference in the lives of others. My heart sings when I get to work with them. I can’t wait to show them the powerful tools that made such a big difference in my life and also in the way that I approach my author/writing SOLOpreneur journey.
This is also my Birthday month. As many of you know I don’t share my actual birth date on social media as to me this is a breach in your online security and I teach my clients the reasons. However, I love what my sister has done and made it her birthday month. Her’s is easy to say as she calls it Deb-tober. So not sure how to make it sounds cool. If you have ideas leave a comment . So for now I will just call it Laura’s Birthday Month. I will be doing some fun things, gifts to YOU this month too, and some other live online FREE events to celebrate so stay tune. I encourage you to Make a WISH, wish anything you want. Pretend it’s YOUR birthday and you can wish for anything at all, no restrictions….. Dream Crazy and Big and don’t worry about coloring it all in.
So my WISH to you is Health, Wealth and Happiness this month as we celebrate Spring full of new beginnings, new sprouts of ideas, and new journeys that will be EPIC!!!!!!
