Interested in hearing more about my story…

My South African hubby and I have made our home on three different continents and now reside in the Pacific Northwest. We have four wide-eyed, growing explorers and endless wild ideas.

I am an early morning runner, word weaver, outdoor lover, deep thinker, and adventure seeker. I am constantly creating, tinkering, tweaking, and experimenting with my life.
