I'm always interested in the details. What makes a person tick. What they love, what they hate. Here is a more 'real' bio. So hello. It's nice to meet you. I have always considered my readers as friends. Thanks for showing up. If you were in my kitchen, I'd fix you some coffee...
First and foremost, I am Mom to my three sprites – Max, Lewis and Della and wife to my best friend and biggest crush, Matt. I was born in the Deep South and was raised to be very polite and well groomed. I am now a Westerner by choice and am still very polite. We live in Durango, Colorado.
I love reading and writing, art and design, ethnic food, antique swimming pools, trail running, swimming in wild water, cooking on a wood stove, libraries, leggy plants in odd containers, and blue jeans. I want to retire to a teepee. I will beat you at hop scotch and only own 21 articles of clothing.. Coffee is an integral part of my day. I tend to look on the bright side of things and often have an irreverent view point that keeps me smiling. Each and every day I choose Joy. I'm guessing that I'm a prime candidate for Meditation.
I have some strong opinions, but don’t much care for controversy. For years, I wrote a 'mommy blog' but very quickly got tired of the deep, muddy, opinionated rabbit hole of parenting philosophies. In general, I think that there are several thousand right ways to parent and that it's all personal. I think that the most important job I have as a mom is to believe in my kids and empower them to work hard toward their heart's desire.
I teach reading and art and think that those two things alone, pretty much, can make us successful, vibrant, and joyful human beings! I also have a small marketing boutique and I love to help people see their highest business potential. I am big on manners and am sometimes horribly shocked by my own children. I don't sweat the details. Not much in my life is perfect. Nothing really. I struggle. I have bad days. Nay, I have bad weeks. I worry about the future. I try not to worry. I keep on keeping on.
Nice to meet you. Feel free to stick around and see what happens next.....
