"Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
-Mary Oliver-

I am a writer, artist, lover, maker, thinker, gardener, and passionate life-liver. I have many many passions and do my best to live honoring those desires while serving my family and friends in love, time and honesty. I have been homeschooling 1 or more of my children for 8yrs and love living life from the home. We garden, cook real food, keep animals and create daily. I fell in love with the Waldorf Philosophy when discovering Biodynamic Farming practices founded by Steiner. I incorporate Charlotte Mason methodology to our life as well. We live by the heart so before we assimilate new ways into our lives it has to jive with our spirits. Formulas just don't work for our family. Through this practice however we have learned to listen, follow, and trust  our inner voice rather than the worlds. I endeavor to live in a way where my children know Me.

I have been sketching, writing and creating since I could breath it feels like and I can’t imagine life without creativity and making. My prayer is that in me sharing, you will be inspired and encouraged on your creative journey of motherhood.
