Choose Happiness.

You are invited and welcomed to participate in the inspiration and expression this site provokes. I have spent my life watching people, learning from mistakes and growing “up”. I was raised in a very supportive and loving family environment – I couldn’t have asked for anything more! But somewhere along the way, when I entered middle school, I traveled down a dark and lonely road. I pushed everyone away and was lost for about 5 years – not knowing who I was or what I was supposed to do.

Amber VilhauerThen, piece by piece, step by step, I started making better decisions and rebuilding my identity. I graduated high school with honors (actually receiving an award from the school as the “Most Improved” student), moved on to college and most importantly, found myself. I don’t regret or feel badly about a single moment in my past because it is solely responsible for where I am today.

This site is for all of you out there who stumble into doubt, wonder what your purpose is, or just need a place to escape and get answers. I’ve been there, and I’m here for you now.

xoxo, Amber

I originally got the late Wednesday flight because my aunt was coming in to town and I was going to spend the day with her and my cousin. She got caught in a nasty Utah snow storm and I found out the day before my flight she was not going to be able to travel here – the freeways would shut down.

This opened up the opportunity for me to come home a little early which I desperately craved. […]
