If you’re reading this, welcome to my little spot on the Internet. I’ve had this blog going almost 6 years now, though under a variety of changing titles. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what I want to be writing about and for whom I’m writing–sometimes I share family life or book summaries, sometimes memories I want to remember, sometimes I share what’s on my heart and write to share with others, and on a few rare occasions I step up on a soap box. So, if you’re reading here, thanks, and thanks for being patient!
I’m married to Daniel, and together we take joy in being parents to Hana Kate (5), Eden (3.5), and Justus (1). I’m learning that being a mama to three kids is a lot(!) of work, and so writing (and a lot of other things!) sometimes gets placed on the back burner.
Reading, running, studying, drawing, natural living, cooking, anthropology, natural birth, medicine, photography, design, travel, theology, and writing are just a few of the areas that capture my interest. If I had a few more lifetimes, I’d love to pursue degrees and further education in most of these areas. Who knows–maybe I’ll still squeeze a few in.
Our family recently lived in Ecuador for 5 weeks, which was quite the adventure as we navigated a new country with my husband working full-time, kids adjusting, and no vehicle. But we still want to do it again!
In this season of life, I spend a lot of my time caring for our children and home, and spending time with my family and friends. Most of my good writing is done in my head late at night, and that rarely makes it outside my head. It always sounds better in my head, and by the time I write things out, that’s what you read here.
Currently, I work remotely for Zylie and Friends, a pretty awesome toy company whose founders created a doll alternative teddy bear. I do some freelance writing and random remote jobs, as well, and am happy to consider providing services if interested. In between, I read books, and occasionally review them here.
I am a believer in Jesus, and I suppose that if you’re wanting “labels,” orthodox, evangelical Christian should be sufficient.
