In a Nutshell…

About me in a nutshell…

* I love words. and stories. and people. and learning.

* Been writing since I could hold a pen.

* My precious gifts from God {LuLu and Little Man} have been my greatest teachers.

* I believe in the beauty of every person. I know we all have a gift, a talent, and sharing it with the world plugs us in to life. Our gift can present itself in a number of ways large and small, play out in many different forms throughout our lifetime, and sometimes we can feel more plugged into purpose by experiencing a simple human connection rather than by anything grandiose

tdd* I am a total foodie, and since I married a guy who loves to make food for us, I often find myself in foodie heaven!!

* I’ve learned balance {in the form of having all of your ducks neatly in a row} is bunk, that we can each define our own meaning and method for balance, we can set our own terms for success, and that real joy is not something that is dependent on circumstance or stuff.

* I love coffee and chocolate (probably too much) and I can spill almost anything just by looking at it.

* I believe our worth should not be attached to any string: not the size of our jeans, the number on the scale, the amount of money in our bank accounts – we are worthy no strings attached.

* I talk to my mother a minimum of 3 times a day. I know it’s a lot, but my mom rocks!

* Brunch is my favorite meal of the week ~ another reason it’s awesome being married to a chef.

* I break into random song and dance as if life were a musical- my kids and hubby crack up so it’s worth being a total goofball!!

* Did I mention I’ve been writing since I could hold a pen? Yes, whenever and wherever inspiration hits, so that means 3 am blogs and many notes on napkins.

I’ve learned…

* We are constantly learning and teaching; we are both teachers and students of life. Sometimes we teach what we most need to learn, and sometimes we have to make the same mistake over and over again to get the lesson. Mistakes, failures, tests & trials are essential opportunities for growth, appreciation, and connecting to the human spirit. Basically, sometimes life is a messy mess, but there is beauty in it all. The cracked pot shines the most light.

* Nothing is impossible. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

* My favorite rule ~ be kind and love one another, ’cause we’re all facing some sort of battle, we never know what that might be…

It’s an honor to share bits of my heart {and some early AM random thoughts} with you!!
