LIFE is all about balance…Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create.

“It’s all about quality of life and finding a happy balance between work and friends and family.”  Philip Green

Balance of your heart and head. Balance of good and bad. Balance of right and wrong. Achieving a yin-yang balance of dualism keeps you happy, healthy, fulfilled, confident, love, worthy, and free.

 

Yin and Yang are two contrary principles that are complementary, interdependent, interconnected forces forming a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the assembled parts. Yin and Yang lives to work alongside one another to keep each other alive.

REDBIRD

Amazing night with great food & great company. Redbird was the top choice for my sister Helen’s birthday dinner. Warm toasty vibes as you step in the restaurant with a cool modern twist. I personally love to “study the menu” , read & dissect every dish in my mind until I can practically memorize it. When the ladies and I go out for a birthday dinner, we go ALL OUT. Our wallets & our tummies have no limit. With a big group of girls who usually want to order everything off the menu its great to be able to order a variety of dishes  across the menu to”try” a piece of it all. Ordered doubles of many dishes so we can equally share amongst the group leaving the main to the porterhouse steak (insert mouth drool) one of the best steaks I ever had. Every dish was visually pleasing to the eye & packed with flavor. V V V recommend to try. thehalaway approved!
