CONGRATS! And thank you for what you do!
You make your place sound so wonderful and I'm sure it is. I've lived most of my life in the North part of the U.S. and have no desire to go back there. I would love to live in the tropics. But now I wonder if I were all raw and had as many years of eating raw under my belt like you do, if I wouldn't enjoy the snowy winters and not want to cave to warm cooked foods. I remember really enjoying looking at the pine trees all covered in snow and seeing the horse drawn sleds and such. Now when I look at these pictures I shiver and think I'm so glad I live in Tennessee where we only get 4 inches of snow a year! The cold makes me want to eat warm, cooked foods. The tropics make me want to sit in the sun a sip my smoothies and eat my oranges.
I'm so glad you enjoy it up in Maine. There are so many raw foodist in CA and FL and very few in the colder climates. I think you are going to be a great asset to those in the New England states! People will finally be able to have access to someone who can help them to improve their health through what they eat. Thanks for all you do!!!!
LOL. Well, ask me next winter Helen if im sick of the snow!
Ya, we are loving it here but we do travel a lot so it will break up the winters. I love the warm weather but I think you appreciate it more after a big snow storm. I really thought for years that I would never go back to cold weather but it actually doesnÂ’t affect me like it used to. It kind of rejuvenates me im finding. It is really an amazing site when the everything is covered with snow and the sun is sparkling on it, its like a winter wonderland.
Yes I think this area needs this information. This is were I started, in MA so I feel like im back to my roots.. when I first started this around here no one had ever heard of it and it was so much fun turning people on to it who were totally new and in awe of what raw could do for you. I did my fist support groups and seminars here and it was an amazing thing to watch. Its not as much of a Â‘fad thingÂ’ or an old idea as it can seem to be in certain places like CA. I love Â‘wakingÂ’ people up to raw so itÂ’s a great place to do it. People are so ready here and open to it.
YouÂ’ll have to come back for a visit and stay at the B&B in the winter time here, it will be beautiful! HereÂ’s a sneak peak. WeÂ’ll have more picture soon.

What a magical looking house! How exciting! Congratulations and the best of luck to you and yours. Tracey
Maybe, just maybe, someday I may head back up North (in the SUMMER) and stay at your Bed and Breakfast! It has been about 31 or 32 years since I've been to Maine. We camped out at Segabo Lake. The Lagoon was so clear that we could see the bottom like looking through glass. I hope it's still as clean.
I can see where traveling a lot helps with dealing with the long winters. Hope you find it works out for you. As you said, the need is there, and it's great that you are there to help many people to achieve a healthy life!!!
I could have sworn I posted here LOL. I think the place is very lovely! I sense that it will draw people in, it feels very good. You know how people say something is calling their name in that it has that strong attraction? That place seems like that. Very Magical indeed!!

YES! Alissa, your B&B house is so BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT --I hope we get to see some of the insides??
