I’m a quiet-loving introvert who spends most days wrangling dogs and kids while searching for my lost mug of tea. I want to love the people God has put in my life, even when it’s hard. I want to live simply; to seek connection in the relationships that really matter; to feed my soul, nourish my mind, and strengthen my body; to be brave enough to be vulnerable; and to dream of big things while loving the moments that make up the days. Some [rare] times I nail it, but most of the time, not so much.
You’ll find me writing about homeschooling, my blended family, life as an adoptive mom, books and DIY projects, healthy living, and quirky personalities… but I don’t claim to be an expert in any of it. I’m a work in progress, still learning how to live real and love hard. While you’re here, I hope you’ll find encouragement to do the same.
