I care about things, so this blog is a collection of my thoughts on them as it occurs to me to write them. These thoughts could be anything, really. Motherhood, marriage, faith, friendship, crafting, books, tv shows or movies, fair trade, fashion, art, food, love, Jesus. I’m not trying to limit myself here.
I have decided to follow Jesus. I am not good at it, but I’m trying. And failing. And trying again. I’m a wife to Keith, and I’m a mom of two beautiful boys. I’m a starter of projects. Sometimes I even finish them. I am a Compassionate Entrepreneur with Trades of Hope, helping provide opportunity for women to empower themselves out of poverty. I’m a teacher by nature and by trade, having worked with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and the entire gamut of kindergarten up through high schoolers, even though I am currently only plying that trade with my own kiddos. I love words and books, tea and coffee, and being surrounded by pretty things to look at. I’m crazy intense. About everything. I am working on letting go of a lot of my own garbage and extending the grace to others that I so desperately need myself. I am in the process of becoming a librarian via degree even though I am pretty sure I’ve been a librarian from birth deep down in my soul.
