My beginnings were rooted in the heart of juxtaposition, a foundation worth mentioning. My early childhood years were spent living amongst the cityscapes and concrete modern menageries of Sacramento, California until eventually my family moved east, trading the ever busy burning black tops and swimming pools for our 1800's restoration farm home project in New York, complete with lush green countrysides, homegrown apple trees, gravel driveways, and the warm wood burning stoves. This led to a culture of encompassed with diversity and with that my a deep love for the contrast and complimentary of old versus new, rough meets romantic, masculine embracing feminism, and past finding present.
In my youth I began creating and writing, discovering beauty wherever I could, and as I grew so did my cravings for deeper interaction and individual experience. I was born to be this woman, the one who flourishes in freedom and can see hope anywhere; because really beauty and art are just that, they are hope, wonderment, and delight all wrapped up into one. Along the way I met my now husband Brian, as he was leaving New York for California, and I was headed to Thailand; yet in the midst of it all the stars aligned. Brian moved back to New York, I abandoned Thailand and we were married at the peak of an Indian summer in 2015 in the home of our beginnings, New York. Now we're a family of three, with our darling Ellis, currently living in Southern Utah.
This little place on the internet is an extension of my heartfelt musings and honest living, my journal of becoming and remembering. This space was created for me to continue sharing bits and pieces online all in one platform, harvesting beautiful experiences and continually discovering myself along the way.
When it comes down to it, I am an advocate for simplicity, romance, honesty, and virtuous artistry. I am just a twenty-something woman, passionately putting it all out there, publishing & documenting the peace & goodness in the journey of living.
