As a writer, I strive to share stories. I write to tell the truth about my experience in this often confusing yet magical life, in the hopes of connecting with you.
Like you, I wear a lot of hats -- and like you, I'm trying to balance it all with grace and intention.
I read on my Kindle when I can, but sometimes I watch television instead. I teach yoga at a local studio, but some days I don't feel like practicing. I forget to journal even though I want to be a full-time writer. I never shut the lids of shampoo bottles or cabinet doors. I should know how to change a tire, but I'd really rather not. I like to run, but only after curating the perfect playlist and if the temperature outside is 65-70 degrees. Most of my best friends are a long car ride or a plane ride away, and I cry about that reality sometimes. I try to remember to drink lots of water and hit the snooze button a little less. I belong to an unofficial wine and whiskey club. I teach writing at the local community college, work in corporate IT communications and serve on a board to bring young professionals to the art center. I'm saving my pennies for a trip to Morocco someday. I like to cook; egg sandwiches are my specialty. Hanging out with my parents and two sisters is my favorite thing to do. I can't stop taking pictures of my pets, Stanley the pug and Stella the rescue kitten.
I started this blog in 2013 as an outlet for creative writing. Here, you'll find stories and observations, book reviews and yoga talk, posts about travel and family and body image and relationships and faith and other big questions. Big questions are my favorite.
Let's get started, shall we?
