Why lifestyle? Because as much as I love traveling, the truth is that my day-to-day life is not spent on beaches and in national parks. Rather, the vast majority of my life is spent inside my house, or at the very least, within a handful of miles from my house.

I work from home. I chase my kiddos around mostly at home while trying to keep them alive and somewhat happy. And I do my best to keep things running smoothly in this sweet little home of ours.


Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love. – Rumi

As with travel, my goal is to empower you to live life bravely. To help you define your life for you, as I attempt to live my life for me and my family in the way that matters to us.

Some days I go outside, some days I sit and watch my children play, some days I bake, and some days I write and work. Pretty much every day I am seeking friendship, love, and grace, and that is harder to live than it sounds!


Guided by natural, sustainable, and simple living, I hope you’ll find something of meaning to you here.
