"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
Lori - thanks so much for your thoughtful post. Good to get confirmation that I'm not being unrealistic in what I'm looking for. Just got to keep looking (and wishing YOU lived closer!). Just like yoga instructors, it can be easy to get certified and hang out a shingle; it's another thing to actually build a practice.
Appreciate your insights, I'm glad that my search will eventually pay off. In the meantime, I've energy around this, which is a good thing.
Let me know if any additional ideas pop into mind.
