About @jamieweil

I'm on an adventure to bring happiness, relaxation, and some shine to a stressed out world. You might call it a Divine mission. Covid Season 2020 has taught me some important lessons about myself and about you, but most importantly about US. I have written about those in a book called Shine: When Chasing Sacred Spaces Goes Dark which came out December 2020 and hit #1 Bestseller in 7 categories out of the gate thanks to my readers. Right now, I'm blogging about fun, food, and wine at jamieweilwrites.com and sharing spa secrets I've been wanting to share FOREVER at spaguidesecrets.com. Stay tuned and get your robes ready.
