I'm Glad You Are Here!

I love old pajamas, walking barefoot, nature, the smell after rain, my husband Chris, my dog Vienna, my family, my friends, my journal, my meditation practice, this beautiful mysterious universe... I love going deep with my thoughts and conversations. I used to be self-conscious about this way of being, my hyper sensitivity to feeling emotions deeply but today I honor and enjoy who I am.

I'm here to inspire you to love who you are and celebrate it together.


There are so many things we have forgotten about our essence... our eyes and ears have been trained to hear and see things in a certain way. Our voice seems to be scared to show its authentic self. 
I have used creativity as a tool to re-connect with myself, to listen to my own voice and allow it to speak through the things I create.

“Observe the flowers that are alive and compare them to the flowers that you believe are dead. What is the difference? The dried up dead flowers are no longer growing while the alive flowers are indeed still growing.”

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

The more I do and create, the more I want to share with others. Writing has been my most precious tool during this journey and I intend to use it to give away most of the lessons I've learned. With this newsletter I hope to inspire you to choose and practice a life of curiosity and joy.
