Renovation, Schloss Schwarzenbach - The Agenda / 01.04.2016

One of my passions is home decorating and renovation. I love to express myself through creating environments to suit practical and aesthetic desires. Many of you have visited my homes and experienced how I transformed four walls to into spaces that represent my family's personality and needs. I have taken a house down to the studs and basically rebuilt it to the last final detail. When guests enter my home I am more interested in them feeling comfortable than impressed. With that in mind I tackle many home...

Empowerment - Vietnam / 25.03.2016

I am a fortunate person. I realize this everyday. I have a great family, a wonderful husband and amazing children who are kind, polite, and all very talented in their own special way. And while I am grateful, I realize everything we have is the result of years of hard work, sacrifice, tradeoffs, and determination. If there is an element of luck in our success, then all the more to be thankful for. My character and personality has been formed as a result of many factors, including my early...

Health & Wellness / 09.11.2015

Body Massaging: Health Will Not Wait! Why do we need a crisis before we make a change? When New Year's Eve rolls around we often make a resolution to get more fit, eat less, and take our health seriously. Sadly that intention fades all too quickly and our usual unhealthy habits resume. This is a cautionary tale about the urgency of now and the consequence of not being proactive with our health. I rarely look in a mirror, perhaps to make sure I don't have a toothpaste mustache and move...

Family / 22.07.2015

Starring the Christensen Family and Gerard Rancinan I have always loved taking family portraits; however in recent years it has been challenging with our frenetic travel schedule and five children who are now young adults who are rarely at home. In Denmark it is a tradition to use the family portrait for Christmas cards or other special family events. I miss gathering the family for our annual portrait, choosing and coordinating our wardrobe, and the excitement of unwrapping and hanging the finished product. On a busy day as I...

These reactions caused me to wonder, considering it is a swift 45 minute drive from Zurich airport and a touch away from Zurich City Center. However, Schwarzenbach is not the chosen address of many wealthy and self proclaimed elite that tend to reside near Lake Zurich and the surrounding areas in high end village style housing, of which you...
