I am a mother, writer, traveler, dreamer, and teacher. My heart’s desire is to inspire people to grow. To learn new things, big or small. To plant a flower or bake a cake or to smile at a stranger. To drive a tractor or go down a water slide.

I don’t aspire to perfection. I aspire to improvement. I want my motto to be, “I’m better than I was yesterday and not as good as I will be tomorrow.”

Most importantly, I want to learn to trust myself. To know that I am doing the thing that most inspires me, no matter what value it may seem to have in the world, no matter how scared and overwhelmed I feel at times. To make inspired choices, every day, no matter how seemingly insignificant.
