I love exploring everything and finding our way to beauty and wisdom, as well as to the heart and humor in life. I want to reach for an intelligent optimism and just have some fun while doing so. If you’re out there… and this sounds good to you… then thank goodness! Because this is just the beginning.” The show’s format is described as encompassing human interest stories, happy news, lifestyle segments, and celebrity guests.
