Blogging & Life

Long-time blog readers will know I've transformed in big ways since the early days. Since starting that first blog, life has changed a lot. In the last 9 years, I've lost my religion, survived divorce, taught myself how to lose 15 pounds, watched four beautiful babies grow from tots to teens, navigated the oft-exhausting waters of single motherhood, gotten two tattoos, launched two new companies and a variety of incredible projects, discovered how to date again, partnered with an incredible man, learned how to integrate said incredible man (who had no children of his own) into a pre-fabbed family of 5, taken up mountain biking, built a stunning photography studio and encouraged a passionate family-wide addiction to local coffee shops

I believe in living life with arms and eyes wide open. I believe cleansing comes after you've climbed a mountain on clipless pedals.  That the uncomfortable, awkward moments of trying-new-things are worth sitting in. I believe in words and wildness, live for creative expression and love the groundedness I feel when surrounded by people I love. 

Life is good. Food in amazing. Simple is splendid. Everyday is an opportunity to build a life you love. If you think so, too, come. Stay. Sit a while. Let's be friends. I'm delighted to have someone like-minded and lovely like you in my neck of the woods.
