NAME: Marnie

LOCATION: Toronto, Canada

AGE: 39


WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION THE MEDIA GIVES OF WOMEN: That getting older is not sexy. Age brings on confidence and that is very attractive. I have a problem when I see women who are just barely 30 getting Botox treatments.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU THE MOST: I'm constantly inspired and in awe of people who march to the beat of a different drummer. They know what makes them happy and they do it. Period.

WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR SPARE TIME: I'm a book worm. I love to read. It can be anything from cook books, self improvement, or fiction. If it looks interesting I'll read it.

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS BLOG: I love the yourself, be supportive & share. Let's raise each other up! How could I not want to contribute to such a wonderful community?

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE DISH: Overall, I try to make sure I eat mostly whole foods. When you make your meals at home, you know what went into it. Favorite dish...too many to count, but I have a favorite drink. It's called a green smoothie. I throw in some fruit, kale and spinach (whatever greens and fruit you have on hand will work) mix it with some water or coconut juice and put it in a high speed blender. All you taste is the fruit. It's delicious and very healthy.

FAVORITE PLACE TO SPEND TIME: My backyard. I love sitting on the deck, feeling the sunshine on my back.

WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE A WOMAN: My daughter!!! It was a privilege carrying her under my heart for 9 months, watching my belly grow, feeling her kick and hearing her heartbeat at my doctor's appointments. Pregnancy is a very precious time. I'm glad I was able to experience that. Now that she is 4 the fascination continues.

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED WAS: "There is only a Stream of Well-Being that flows. You can allow it or resist it, but it flows just the same." Esther & Jerry Hicks. It's really true when you think about it...swimming upstream is always a battle!
