Hi my name is Kelly I am 19. My family always told me that I was born at the wrong time. I am truly a hippie at heart. I have been the only vegetarian in my family for the longest time and I am really passionate about the environment. I grew up with and love the music from the 60's and 70's and I am glad to find a team of people that have the same interest as I do.

Hello everyone! People called me a hippie- but I never did any drugs...I graduated in 1972 from Columbus High School- then I went to Europe for a month at age sixteen -for a graduation trip from my parents. Got married at eighteen, had two girls, under 2 -by age twentyone. Got divorced in 1989, then remarried in 1990. Here I am, eight grandchildren later-My oldest daughter, Dana is into organic farming and ballroom dancing. Her oldest son, Jonathan (age 12) grows his own vegetables in their back yard.
Wow, it's been quite a journey, so far. Hope to share photos with you guys on my spark page. I live in southeast Georgia on the coast in Brunswick.(an hour south of Savannah)
We had no snow, here. It's almost like being in Florida. The high on Monday is expected to be 60 degrees. My other daughter, Jenny,lives in Miami. She has a son- who is already almost seventeen years old. Where has the time gone? My grandchildren are growing up,swiftly! It will be great fun to remember some old times with this group.
I love all types of music,reading,exercising
(at the Y),walking-(not running),being a Red Hatter,cooking and watching TV/Dvd's and traveling. It's hard to believe that I'm already a senior citizen. My mirror tells me that I probably won't feel or look sixteen years old, anymore.(ha, ha)

Peace and Joy
P.S. ( My cat's name is Roscoe)
He is a grey tabby
P.S.S. I have 30 lbs to lose by June 2011

Welcome to the team! emoticon
Don't feel bad; sometimes I feel like I'm trying to learn how to eat as well as my birds! Join our fruit and veggies goal and see if that helps. I know it keeps me a little more focused on eating those first.

I just tried to visit your page and noticed you've got it set on private. Have you considered making it public? That makes it easier for people to get to know you by reading your status, checking out your pictures, and reading your blogs. It also makes it possible for people to send you virtual goodies, and that's always fun. In the meantime, I look forward to getting to know you through your posts here on the team page. emoticon

Hi all! I am a crunchy mama to 3 kids - my oldest is 5. I am a naturally inclined/AP parent. I find myself feeding my children very well and sneaking junk where they won't see. I'm hoping to help bring myself up to the standards I hold for my children.

Welcome, Faye! We're glad you've landed here, even if you don't still have the bus!

Hello - I'm Faye and I live in upstate New York. I am a couple of weeks shy of my first sparkversary, although I didn't get really serious until April 2010 when my partner and I adopted our dog Wally and I started walking numerous times daily. I am a year short of 60 and still miss my camoflague VW microbus I had in the early 70s.

Hello, all you happy hippies. I really belong to your tribe! In the sixties I was a folksinger. Professionally. In the seventies I was a young hippie mom on the beach in Venice, California. I'm a grandmother now but believe me, my inner hippie is still very much alive!

Hello Hippies
I actually joined SP about a month ago and my beautiful sister Helen turned me on to this wild and wooly bunch of hippies who are getting healthy. I was born on March 22, 1953 somewhere around the peak of the baby boom. I was protesting the Vietnam War, hitching around the country and all sorts of things that we were doing in the late 60's and early 70's. Grew up in Wisconsin and Minnesota and ended up here in California living on the beach north of San Francisco. I am looking forward to joining you on your walkabout.
I was formerly henrykh and saw that few people were using their real names and became Isaparadox.

This seems like a fun team for me to join. Hi, my name is Scott, I live in southern NH. I work with kids. I love music. I started my healthy lifestyle change on Sept. 3, 2010, after a series of ongoing health issues and warnings from my doc, including weight, high cholesterol and high glucose level. I changed my diet, started recording what I ate, seeing a dietitian, and I bought a bicycle which I love. I joined Spark People in Oct. 2010. I enjoy it and it's been very helpful for me.

Hi! My name is Lisa. I live in Indiana. I am a 42 year old mother of five and wife of one (hee hee). I am the child of hippies who never stopped being hippies just because the times changed. They raised all of us to be hippies right along with them! :) My parents have a line of guitar strings called "Old Hippie Guitar Strings" that have my daddy's face on the label. We have wonderful tie dying parties and camp fires that go on late into the night. We read mother earth magazine (not quite as good since it went slick) and preserve our own food. I am very interested in "clean eating", and it seems sometimes to get harder every day. I hate GMO anything! My interests include photography, reading, guitar, quilting, travel and nutrition (much to my childrens' dismay). I also LOVE LOVE LOVE meeting new people!

I am so pleased to have stumbled across this group while posting on a friend's page. I have been a member of spark people since July. I've lost 37 lbs. so far, but have many more to go. I love spark people because of the positive encouragement I find here. There is so much hate in the world these days that it sure is great to be able to log on to a positive place. I hope I can be of service to others whenever there is a need for encouragement or comfort.

New to Happy Hippies, not new to Sparkpeeps. Happy Thanksgiving to all! We're enjoying all veggies grown in our garden or CSA this Thanksgiving - and for the non-vegetarians in the crowd a 30 lb. bird that was running around the barn yard until this weekend! Giving thanks for so much ... emoticon

New here! I always say I was born later than I should have been. I'm in my early 30's but I grew up with a dad who was a small-town hippie. I like rock from the late 60's and 70's better than most of today's music, I love nature and art and try to be as organic as I can afford to be. I'm looking forward to meeting others! emoticon

Hey everyone! I've been poking around and I just love this group. Happy to be a part of it! I'm looking to spark my crunchy granola side as well as my general get healthy attitude. This looks like the perfect place :)

-JT

When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Welcome Cari! I was 16 in '69 so I really like this team, too. You definately sound like you have the fitness part down! My husband has been in bands (starting with his father's) so we know about the live music problems. A lot of venues now just want karaoke or a DJ. So good luck on getting busy again with your music. I'll be seeing you around!

OK... I just love the title and theme for this team. I've always said that if I had been born 15 years earlier, I would have been a hippie! Peace & love!

My name is Cari. I was born during the Summer of Love. What a great time to be born! Lots of good karma! I just joined SP yesterday. I am very serious and straight forward about kickin' this fat! But there is also the other peaceful, laid back side of me that needs to come through. It's all about balance.

I had the 2nd of 2 carpal tunnel release surgeries yesterday. I'm studying to train as a Turbo Kick instructor. I go for my gold certification on September 25th. The following day, I will be participating in The Race For The Cure 5k walk.

Although I have developed a passion for fitness, I do have a first love....... MUSIC! I have spent 12 of the past 13 years as a professional singer/entertainer. My DH & I spent many years out on the road working as a duo, entertaining in various venues from hotel lounges to cruise ships. When the economy crashed, so did our business. It has been especially rough on me. I miss it more than you can imagine. I do get to perform still, but it is only one-nighters. Those are very few and far between. I am keeping the faith that the music business will pick back up.

Until then we do have a recording studio here at home. I write lyrics and DH puts down the music. Music has always been a saving grace for me. No matter how bad my life got, I could always turn to music for comfort or a quick pick-me-up.

Didn't mean to write an epistle, LOL! I'm sure I'll be writing more about myself at some point, LOL!

Catch you all later! Have a groovy day!

~Cari~

Hello everyone! My name is Kristen. I have been on SparkPeople now for about a month but only recently have gone searching for different groups of people with similar interests as myself (besides the main, generally shared interesting of wanting to live a healthy lifestyle.

I am a new mom of an eight month old son who really keeps me on my toes and moving! He is a big reason for my wanting to get in better shape and be healthier; I want to be able to play with him throughout his life. I am also getting married next summer in June to my soulmate! I can't lie, I want to look good that day too.

I am currently a stay-at-home-mom who writes whenever I have the spare time, which some days just doesn't happen. I am also an avid reader as well. Back in the spring I started Belly Dance lessons and have loved it! No classes over the summer but they will be starting soon and I can't wait!

I look forward to meeting the people in the team!

Cheers!

Hi Everyone -

Guess I better say hello since I have posted a couple of posts here already. My name is Alicia although as Nims everyone knows me as Witchy. I have been on sparkpeople for quite awhile, first under WitchyGodmother and now under WitchyG. I dumped the first one in a fit of silliness and found I missed my friends here a lot more than I ever knew, so I came back. I also tried saying I didn't care about eating well or exercising or anything like that and my body actually said whoa. So, now I am back and trying to eat simply with much more veggies and fruit (I used to go months without eating any) Exercising because I love how I feel when I do.

I work as an office admin but will be retiring in less than three years and so I am doing more and more writing and stuff on my website place so that I can do Witchy Godmother full time as a storyteller, card reader, fairy godmother and whatever else she grows into. I want to travel to festivals and spread my sparkles and well.... it is happening in amazing ways so I figure I better get healthy because I think I am going to be busy as Witchy.

My friends Nims and Hippichick1 were the ones who got me interested in this team and as I read the posts I knew I would love it here too. So, here I am.



I wish you peace

Hey Y'all
Im Allison. This is my first day on the SP program & I am loving it. Especially finding groups that match my interests and lifestyle. i am 21 & the mother of a beautiful 3yr old boy.
I am so happy to be making this lifestyle change and am using it to get back into my yoga/meditation routine.
I hope to find an even higher sense of awareness by becoming closer to my body.

Hiya all you happy hippies........
My name is Karla but on SP everyone just calls me Nimma or Nims. I am 49 and live in Arkansas the natural state. I was actually born here but moved away for 15 yrs to FL. Coming back to this slow way of life was the best thing I ever did. I am married to a wonderful man from England. We have a small organic herb garden with some tom's and peppers thrown in.
I love to read, cook, fish, camp, spend time with family and friends, travel and I am a writer. I grew up on Southern Rock and this is the site for me. I have been here awhile and was thrilled to finally look for some more *me* teams. So here I am.
I tend to eat more organic foods veg & meats and we practice a more natural way of life in our house as far as foods and teas and some natural ways of healing. I am looking at yoga and aready do meditation. I am here to find my way BACK to a healthier life style.

Hello to all fellow hippies! My name is Joy and I'm an on-again, off-again Spark-er...hoping this team will keep me more motivated. I live in Columbus, Ohio (just saw the Furthur show for any Deadheads out there...AMAZING!). Glad to find my people out here in Sparkland-have a happy day!

I've got a huge yellow vuvuzela and I blew it once only - the cats nearly died of shock! The worst was when people returned from a match and trumpeted their joy at all hours of the night. I hope they will fade away into a bad memory...

Actually, I am, too! We've had the soccer playoffs on the tv all week and I give thanks to the Almighty every single day that my neighbors haven't got hold of vuvuzelas yet. We've got a beginning harmonica student across the street; that's bad enough!

Good morning, Happy Hippies! I've just signed up because I saw this group on one of my SparkFriend's pages and the description sounded so much like what I'm doing right now!

I'm living in Nebraska (Living the Good Life is our motto...) with my wonderful husband and my son that I'm incredibly proud of. I'm learning to take care of myself again after years of putting everyone else first. Meditation and exercise are helping me with that a lot. I'm a vegetarian (although I occasionally eat fish) and I love running, drumming, gardening, and making clay pots. I'm slowly getting back to doing my yoga practice and my meditation practice. My biggest obstacle has been making time for myself to do these things, but I know I'll find support for that here.

Happy hippie...yes, that's my goaI and look at all you other happy hippies I just found!!

I live in Lower Slower Delaware (yes, that really is the motto around here). I love to dance but have been relagated to dancing around the house because I've run out of dance partners since my husband got out of the band he was in. I love gardening in the yard, and have a small organic vegetable garden. I practice meditation and yoga, but not consistently, that's something I'm working on. I tend to isolate myself, so finding this GREAT website and this message board should help me with that. I want/need more energy and know if I lose weight and eat healthy then the energy will come. I've been studying energy healing, but not sure I'm supposed to be a healer, I'll figure that out after I've finished all the inner work I need to do. I found this SparkTeam Page by searching "meditation", and quite a few other interesting pages came up, too, but this one was listed first and had the coolest name!!

HELLO Happy Hippies!!! So glad to have found this group. I'm 42, live in Southern California, have two little ones (8 and 9) and enjoy cooking, listening to music & basically just having FUN! Got a little too much junk in my trunk to be shaking my tailfeather as much as I'd like - so here I am looking for new friends in fitness, support & motivation. HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY!

~And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom ~

Good morning, all!

I'm Carrie, I'm 30, and I live in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I have been on Spark for about a year and a half and decided to look for some new Spark teams to shake it up a bit.
Looking forward to meeting you all!
