Welcome to my little space online. Here you’ll find me quietly giving snapshots of my life. I like to keep things simple so my posts usually aren’t too long. You’ll find me sharing about my passions of reading and encouraging others to do so, our family’s journey towards a chemical free home and fresh, local, and organic nutrition and living.
I used to be known as a swimmer; 6th grade through college, most of my time was spent in or near a pool. My swimming carrer took me to the college (Ashland University) where I met my husband! We met in Freshman English the first week of school, and now it’s 13 years later! I’m a stay-at-home-mom (in Indy) to two little ones: Aaron (5) Lydia (3) and Baby #3 due to arrive March 2013.
I’m striving to glorify God in all I do and live in the world and not of it. We enjoy living as natural as possible. It’s been 5+ years down our organic-lifestyle road, and I’m constantly learning more and trying things. My green journey started when I was pregnant with Aaron, we took the Bradley Method class and I also began to make my own household cleaners. Since then, I think my friends and family might say I’m pretty weird in my homebirthing, babywearing, cloth diapering, home schooling, kefir & kombucha growing, grain soaking, Young Living oils wearing ways. But I’m OK with that.
Supporting my husband and raising our children to glorify God is my ministry. In my (limited amount of) free time, I enjoy photographing our life with my Nikon and reading great literature with my book club. If I happen to be blessed with more time beyond that I paint. Mostly abstract; I love color and have many future paintings brewing in my head. We also are a bit of a DIY family. We tend to tackle the big home improvement projects rather than all the fun crafts that I’m pinning, but I hope to change that soon! Craft party anyone?
