What does “local” mean to a gypsy like me?

July 30, 2014

I met my husband Jeff in college a few weeks before he signed a professional baseball contract. He spent seven years working his way up the minor league ladder with a few cups of coffee in the big leagues, and I was right there by his side. We moved around. A lot. Five moves in […]

5 Ways to Add Peace to Your Day

July 22, 2014

When I think about finding peace, I tend to jump to the big ideas like spending a few days in the mountains, getting a massage, or drowning myself in spiritual music.  But I don’t often have time or money for that.  So how do I weave peace into my day-to-day life? Here are 5 (free) […]

Reality Check

July 16, 2014

I love photography and sharing pretty pictures and inspiring others…and sometimes my highlight reel becomes just a little too rosy, and people ask me how I do it all. Well friends, I don’t. Not even close. Some days I struggle to get out of bed, and the kids yell at each other too much, and […]

Learning to hand over the day…

March 30, 2014

Being able to work for myself is a blessing. And sometimes a curse. What I struggle with most is truly setting down the work. Switching my brain off at the end of the day to focus on my family. Letting rest and peace and quiet fall. My brain races. Ideas pop, deadlines flash, iPhone beckons. […]

Undoing Disease

March 25, 2014

This is a hard post to write. Not because the subject is difficult, but because celiac disease is literally attacking my brain right now. Microscopic amounts of gluten have slipped into my system twice (I think) in the past two weeks, and my brain is having a hard time processing words. It’s having an even […]

What I’m not giving up for lent

March 6, 2014

I’m pretty new to the whole idea of Lent. Growing up I remember hearing my catholic friends talk about it a little, but I didn’t understand it. The first time I saw someone with ashes on their forehead in college, I politely told them they had dirt on their face and might want to wash […]

One simple step to help end slavery

February 27, 2014

By the end of today, tens of thousands of people will post a photo of a red X on their hand to raise awareness for the End It Movement. It’s easy to dismiss something so simple (psh, what is a red X on your hand going to do to end slavery?), but awareness is no […]
