Kim Thornton is the co-creator and webmaster for two websites: http://www.smart-heart-living.com and http://www.rustic-lodge-lifestyle.com. Smart Heart Living was created after Kim's wife Sandra had a serious heart incident in 2004. They created the site to provide the information and resources she searched for after her heart event. If you're not sure where to turn to get the help you need, this website is a great place to start. It's packed with resources and information related to exercise, diet, body weight, stress, smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol, lifestyle choices, and much, much more. Rustic Lodge Lifestyle was created in response to their commitment to the lodge lifestyle to help others find the resources to create their own rustic paradise! The website provides a wealth of information as well as provides a venue for the exchange of stories and ideas.
