Hi, folks. Loads of changes have taken place at VerumVita and in my life as well. Let’s start with VerumVita. As you can see there is a new look and a new focus. With all the changes that have taken place in my life over the past few months (which I will go into more in a future post), I had an epiphany of sorts and came to the conclusion that a more mindful, healthful approach to everyday living was desired and needed for myself and my family. In sharing some of the changes we made with others, I realized that this was information would be useful not only to my close friends and family but anyone who has a similar mindset or desire for a more healthy, doable approach to living a whole “true” life. (So glad the blog name still works with the new focus…verum=true, vita=life.) Stay tuned!
Consider this your official invitation to the Loudoun Lyme 5K Run with proceeds benefiting the National Capital Lyme Disease Association. Lyme disease is the leading tick borne illness in the country and is particularly prevalent in Loudoun County. Some amazing strides have been made in Virginia with new legislation passed which forces doctors to alert their patients to the inconsistent and often times inaccurate results from the Western Blot test which has been the go-to test for Lyme. Patients are now armed with the information that there are other options, more effective and accurate options for testing. The longer the disease goes undiagnosed, the harder it is to treat and it attacks more organs in your body making you increasingly more ill. Come on out and support your friends and neighbors that are suffering from this debilitating disease.

According to the European Union Embassies’ Open House website: “Each embassy will open to the public from 10 am until 4 pm on Saturday, May 11, 2013, offering a rare look inside the buildings and providing a unique opportunity to experience the country’s cultural heritage and national traditions.”
Consider taking the time to experience this once a year opportunity. Bring the kids and make a day of it. Afterwards take a stroll along the Mall and marvel at this great city!
