A Bit More Personal...

If you aren't aware that Eat, Pray, Love-- based on Elizabeth Gilbert's best selling novel-- comes out today in theatres-- then you've been living under a rock! One woman's inspiring journey across Italy, India, & Indonesia has rocked souls all over the world.

The book has shifted women's perspectives on marriage, independence, religion, life, etc. In recent magazine articles we've read that some women have taken their very own Eat, Pray, Love journeys and rediscovered themselves.

In lieu of the movie's release today we asked some of our staff & franchisees what their very own Eat, Pray, Love symbols are in their lives. It's so interesting to see everyone's answers! We hope you enjoy getting to know some of us a little bit better!

Cheers! To hoping the movie is as good as the book! Although, Julia Roberts can do no wrong ;)
